MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry have already a broken world record with their new Instagram account.
The parents-to-be look set to claim the title for the fastest ever account to gain one million followers.
They launched their new account under the handle ‘sussexroyal’ on Tuesday and attracted one million followers by 9pm – six hours after they created it.
This means they smashed the current record by almost six hours.
Guinness World Records states that the current fastest time to gain one million Instagram followers is 11 hours and 36 minutes and it was achieved by K-pop star Kang Daniel on 2 January 2019.
By 4am on Wednesday the royal couple’s following had shot up to 1.8million.
Sharing their very first post this afternoon, Harry and Meg wrote: “Welcome to our official Instagram; we look forward to sharing the work that drives us, the causes we support, important announcements, and the opportunity to shine a light on key issues.
“We thank you for your support, and welcome you to @sussexroyal – Harry & Meghan.”
The couple also posted a selection of images taken over the past couple of years – including those from royal walkabouts and tours.
And since the page launched this afternoon, fans have been going wild, with hundreds posting comments of support for the couple.
One wrote: “I love it! So glad you finally have your own!”
With the Duke and Duchess set to welcome their first child in a matter of days, it looks like the new social media account could have some adorable photographs of Baby Sussex pretty soon.
Meghan is said to be due to give birth this month and while the sex of the baby has not been announced, royal bookmakers have experienced a flurry of bets lately that the Duchess of Sussex is expecting a girl, who she plans to name Elizabeth.
