Meghan Markle Just Deleted All Of Her Social Media Accounts, Here's Why

The actress had 1.9 million people following her Instagram.

Gone are the days where we could creep Meghan Markle's social media accounts for old photos of the princess-to-be: She's shut them all down.

Markle's Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts vanished from the web last night almost a year after she deleted her personal lifestyle website The Tig. But don't worry, she's not having a Selena moment. Kensington Palace says the decision to close all of Markle's social media accounts is in line with her changing status, as she will soon become a member of the royal family when she marries Harry in May.

The palace said she was "grateful to everyone who has followed her social media accounts over the years" but had closed them "as she has not used these accounts for some time".

In fact, fans of the Royal Family were alerted to the growing importance of her relationship with Harry when Markle's social media postings began to trail off during 2017.

And now that they're gone for good, people are bound to miss her. At the end of last year, the former actress had 1.9 million people following her posts on Instagram, and over 350,000 Twitter followers, while her Facebook page had almost 800,000 likes.

As someone who was unapologetically political on her social media accounts - she has in the past come out against Brexit and show her support for Hillary Clinton's US presidential nomination - Markle may find losing her personal outlets tough. But hey, she's marrying Prince Harry, so it can't be that bad.
