Prince Harry and Meghan Markle used to have a joint Instagram account through the handle @sussexroyal. But since the couple stepped down from their royal duties, it was eventually cancelled. So, do the Sussexes have Instagram of their own?

As a former actress, Meghan had an Instagram with millions of followers where she shared everything about her life, but she had to delete it when he married Prince Harry in 2018. Alternatively, the Duke of Sussex reportedly had a private account. So, will the public see them actively posting on the platform?

Prince Harry's Private Instagram

When the two's common friend told Meghan Prince Harry wanted to meet her, she asked if she could see his feed.

"That's the thing when people say did you Google him? No, but I [moves her hands as if she's swiping] that's your homework. You're like, 'Hmm, let me see what they're about in their feed.' Not what someone else says about them, but what they are putting out about themselves. That to me was the best barometer," she said. "So, I went through, and it was just beautiful photography and all these environmental shots, and this time he was spending in Africa."

Though the show didn't reveal Prince Harry's Instagram handle, it gave a glimpse of some of his posts.
