Now that her days as a “regular girl” are seemingly numbered, it’s worth pointing out that there are some things that Meghan Markle won't be able to post on social media once she’s a royal. As the actor prepares to for her new life as a member of the British royal family, she will also be relinquishing her right to sharing those moments with fans because members of the Royal Family can't use personal social media accounts, according to the Observer. Their online personas are instead handled by social media managers who delve out carefully scripted posts with professionally photographed snapshots attached — nothing at all like Markle's down-to-earth Instagram posts of the past.
Throughout the years, Markle's life has been sort of an open book for followers who watched the Suits star as she did charity work around the world. She would often share details about her personal life, including throwback photos of herself as a child, snapshots of her mom and dad, and fun moments with celebrity friends like Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra, and Janina Gavankar. It was refreshing for fans to get such an in depth look into Markle's life.
Although she was not, by any means, a serial poster in the past, the actor's Instagram account has already gone silent; her last post is from April 7, 2017, and she also hasn't tweeted since March 8, 2017. That said, now's the perfect time to reminisce about some of the social media moments fans will miss once Markle begins her royal reign.
1. Girl's Night Out
Markle shared a snapshot while kicking it with Quantico star Priyanka Chopra. The moment is probably one of the last times Markle will get to share a girl's night out with her social media fans.
2. Silly Selfies
Markle proved that she doesn't take herself too seriously by posing in a panda mask for the camera. Now that she's traded in her panda for a prince, things are going to be very different. (Or, hey, maybe she still has the panda mask. Best of both worlds?)
3. Solo Trip Snapshots
She once took a snapshot while on a solo vacay in the U.K. This is probably one of the last times Markle will be able to take a trip all by herself.
4. Mommy & Meghan Moments
Markle also shared this sweet video while planting a kiss on her mother.
5. Candid Slipper Cam
Markle showed off her impressive footwear when she shared this snapshot of her adorable Super Mario Bros. slippers.
6. Instagram Inspo
Signing off of her lifestyle, travel and food blog for good back in April, Markle shared some inspiring parting words with fans. Her decision to shut the blog down may have, perhaps, been an early sign that things were heating up between the actor and Prince Harry.
7. Pumpkin Pics
This Halloween post features Markle posing with a pumpkin over her face — something she will probably never get to share on social media again.
8. Girls' Trips
No more fun in the sun videos while on girls' trips once Markle becomes part of the Royal family.
9. Sunset Shots
Tequila sunset posts are now a thing of the past for Markle.
10. Filter Fun
Markle once used the infamous Snapchat dog filter to thank fans for birthday wishes.
11. No Chill
Fans can say goodbye to seeing chill time photos of Markle on Instagram
12. Daddy-Daughter Time
Markle once shared an adorable photo of herself as an infant in her father's arms.
13. Hair Flips
Fans will certainly miss videos like this featuring Markle whipping her hair back and forth as she channels her inner Willow Smith and shows off her fun side.
14. Wine Sips
Prepping material for her now-defunct blog, Markle sipped on wine with friends while chef-ing it up in the kitchen.
As fans get ready to say goodbye to the soon-to-be Her Royal Highness' online presence, they can at least take comfort in one thing. Though her personal social media accounts will soon be a thing of the past, this will hardly be the last we'll see of Markle, whether it's on the official Royal Family social media accounts or in the media coverage of her philanthropy and her new life as Prince Harry's partner.
