The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, have unfollowed everyone on their Instagram handle, under the name of ‘sussexroyal’, creating a huge buzz across the world. The royal couple, who launched their official Instagram in April, raised eyebrows when they unfollowed big accounts like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s page and the Royal family’s official profile.
Well, this is not new as the couple had begun the trend of supporting various causes on the app since May. Earlier the Sussexes have explained that each month they will be following different accounts based on a different theme or cause. Be it mental health awareness, LGBTQ+ rights, or the environment, the royal couple has openly voiced the cause.
However, for the month of August, they need a little help choosing whom to follow next. The couple announced on their account that they want their followers to suggest people or organizations, to follow who are ‘Force for Change’, echoing the theme of the British Vogue September Issue which Duchess Meghan guest-edited.
The couple wrote, “Over the next few days please add your suggestions into the comments section: someone you look up to, the organisation doing amazing work that we should all be following, an account that inspires you to be and do better (or that simply makes you feel good), or the handle that brims with optimism for a brighter tomorrow.”, and added that they will reveal the names of the accounts on Monday, acknowledging them for bringing the change in everyone’s life.
In between supporting charities and activists on their page, the couple also celebrates public engagements and sweet personal occasions like their marriage anniversary, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day and their son, Archie’s christening ceremony.
So, let’s start dropping in the names of your ‘Force for Change’.
