Duchess of Sussex jumped on the opportunity
According to trend scholars and social media experts. The launch of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Instagram account @sussexroyal is directly influenced by the Swedish Royal family. In fact, the use of social media outlets by the monarchs of Sweden has brought the Royal family closer to the general public. Which has generated an upswing in popularity.
Although the UK Royal family is already popular with it’s current demographic, it never hurts to broaden your horizons. Also, an added positive effect by directing what portrays in the media comes as a big benefit. So, of course, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex jumped on the opportunity. The question is, how hard were the negotiations before the green light to go live on Instagram where given?
Baby Sussex breaks the world record
Indeed, according to the leading authority, Guinness World Records. The Duke and Duchess bagged a world record after creating the @sussexroyal account. And the record is nothing to kick to the curb. As in the matter of 5 hours and 45 minutes they had reached 1 million followers, with only one post, reading.
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 and Meghan.
At the moment, April 11th the Instagram account @sussexroyal has 4.4 million followers, ten posts, and following 23. However, the use of the account will most probably differ from a “normal” Instagram user. And it’s not likely that we will see up and close personal pictures. Or things like “word record egg” that currently have over 25 million likes.
And a Kensington employee will most certainly run the account. Well, to be more precise, the Duke and Duchess are also planning a move amongst all this. And the new home for the couple will be at Frogmore Cottage, located on the Windsor Estate 30 miles from London. So, expect photos taken by a hired professional portraying the Duke and Duchess and their new family on @sussexroyal.
The first photo of Baby Sussex
Now that the Duke and Duchess have an Instagram account. Will the first photos of the newly born break the royal “hospital stairs shot” tradition, and be on Instagram first instead? What we know so far, is that the celebrations will be in private at first. Then after the private celebration is done, a public celebration will take over. How long the private part will endure is still not revealed.
What we know for sure, is that the @sussexroyal Instagram account will see many more followers the coming days leading up to the actual day of the birth of the Lord or Lady. which could happen any day now.
Did you know that?
King George V in 1917 passed a Letters Patent declaring that.
“The grandchildren of the sons of any such Sovereign in the direct male line save only the eldest living son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales shall have and enjoy in all occasions the style and title enjoyed by the children of Dukes of these Our Realms” – King George V.
In layman terms
Which means that only Prince Charles’s oldest grandson, Prince George has the actual title of HRH (His Royal Highness or Her Royal Highness). Therefore, the official title for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s child(ren) will be Lady or Lord Mountbatten-Windsor. The only thing that could change title will be if Charles becomes king before the baby is born, which will then get the new-born a direct line to the throne. Or, the 92-year-old Queen Elizabeth steps in and use her discretionary powers and grant the child a prince or princess title.
So, when is the new addition to the Royal family going to happen? Well, we can only speculate, as no official date have been announced by Kensington. But it should be near the end of April. On that note, why not place a small bet on the date, gender, or day of the week the lord or Lady will entering the world at Unibet, LeoVegas, or Rizk under the TV & Novelty/Special section.
