Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want their Instagram followers to tell them who to follow next. Find out why.
This morning, the world awoke to discover that Sussex Royal, the official Instagram account of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, aka Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, has unfollowed everyone on Instagram. It is a well-known fact that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry highlight numerous charities through the medium of social media.
According to Sussex Royal, the Duke and Duchess are looking to “highlight various causes, people, or organizations doing amazing things for their communities and the world at large,” so they have cleared their own account in order to shine a spotlight on some of these causes.

For the month of August we look to you for help. We want to know who YOUR Force for Change is…. Each month, we change the accounts we follow to highlight various causes, people or organisations doing amazing things for their communities and the world at large. 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. We will choose 15 accounts and follow them next Monday, as we spend the month of August acknowledging the Forces for Change in all of our lives.
In an additional Instagram post, they explained that, as they’ve done in the past, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan want their followers to nominate “YOUR Force for Change” for a chance to earn a lucky follow from the account.
“Each month, we change the accounts we follow to highlight various causes, people or organizations doing amazing things for their communities and the world at large,” the post reads. “Over the next few days please add your suggestions into the comments section … We will choose 15 accounts and follow the next Monday, as we spend the month of August acknowledging the Forces for Change in all of our lives,” the post further stated.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month in the US and May 13-19 is Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK. To pay tribute to all of the incredible work people across the globe are doing in this space, we are hoping to shine a light on several Instagram accounts that promote mental well-being, mental fitness, body positivity, self-care, and the importance of human connection – to not just hear each other, but to listen. There are countless organisations doing amazing work for mental health – please consider the accounts we’ve highlighted as a small snapshot of this global support network. We are all in this together. We invite you to explore the extraordinary stories of strength, and the commitment to kindness as seen in the above accounts. Each month we will honour this same concept and change the accounts we solely follow based on a different theme or cause. Please go to our homepage and click “following” to see each of the select accounts and find out more about their work. Please note: Images shared are from some of the handles we are now following

Meghan disclosed about her new fashion line plans in the ‘SeptemberVogue Issue’ she guest-edited: “When you walk into a Smart Works space you’re met with racks of clothing and an array of bags and shoes. Sometimes, however, it can be a potpourri of mismatched sizes and colors, not always the right stylistic choices or range of sizes.”
