Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ‘permanently’ shun social media

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have apparently said a permanent goodbye to social media citing the “hate” they constantly have to endure online as the reason.

A source close to the couple told The Times of London that they have “no plans” to use social media for their new company, Archewell, and are “very unlikely” to resume use of their personal accounts in the foreseeable future. The former royal couple is understood to have become disillusioned by the “hate” they encountered on social media.

The pair use their Instagram account, @sussexroyal, which has over 10.4 million followers to share public health advice on the coronavirus as well as updates on their charity work but have not posted since March 2020.

In an interview with Californian high school students for Mental Health Day last October, the Duchess said she was the most trolled person in the world” in 2020 and urged anyone suffering to speak out. “I’m told that in 2019 I was the most trolled person in the entire world, male or female.

“I don’t care if you’re 15 or you’re 25 – if people are saying things about you that aren’t true, what that does to your mental and emotional health is so damaging.” The Duchess also spoke of the dangers of social media for teen mental health, adding: “Yes it’s a great place to connect but it’s also a place where there is a lot of disconnection.”

In March 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made the decision to step back from official royal duties bearing the brunt of a barrage of online backlash.
