Meghan And Harry Have Unfollowed Will And Kate On Instagram, But For A Good Reason

Settle down now, it's nothing to do with the alleged feud!

Meghan and Harry’s official Instagram went a bit heavy with social media spring clean and unfollowed all the accounts they had been following.

There were just twenty-three accounts being followed by Sussex Royal, including Princess Eugenie’s personal page and – the one that’s got tongues wagging – Kensington Royal (Will and Kate’s account). But before you think this proves any sort of feud or drama, be aware it’s actually for a very good cause.

They are using their platform, which has over five million followers, to showcase some important charities and organisations which focus on li health.

In an announcement on the page today, they said: “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.”

They encouraged followers to check out the pages to educate themselves on the important topic.
“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.”

Among the 16 accounts are pages like Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, Jameela Jamil’s I Weigh movement, and writer Bryony Gordon.
