At the time, the @sussexroyal account gained one million followers within 5 hours 45 minutes of opening, according to the Guinness World Record.

On the other hand, Jennifer Aniston’s Instagram account reportedly gained 116,000 followers within 30 minutes of being created and crossed the one million mark in just a few hours, according to Nine. However, this has not been officially verified.

Many celebrities including the likes of Reese Witherspoon, who currently stars with the 50-year-old actress on Apple’s newsroom drama series, The Morning Show, have followed the celebrity.
