Meghan Markle Has Deleted All Of Her Social Media Accounts

Farewell, Meghan Markle's social media accounts, Yep, it looks like Prince Harry's new fiancée is set for a life without an Instagram or Twitter of her own after her accounts were taken 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.
Kensington Palace confirmed the move shortly after the Suits actress made her first official outing with Prince Harry in South London yesterday, visiting a community radio station.

According to the palace, the LA-born actress 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'. Hmmmmm.
Some people are bound to miss her - just at the end of last year, Markle 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.
It looks like the social media blackout has been coming for some time - in April of last year, Markle deleted The Tig, a website offering a platform for her and other female writers.
Before she deleted the site though, she posted a goodbye message to her 'Tig friends' - which is more that can be said for her Insta or Twitter.
"To all my Tig friends," she wrote, "after close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it's time to say goodbye to The Tig.
"What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity.
"You've made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much joy. Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being 'the change you wish to see in the world'.
"Above all, don't ever forget your worth - as I've told you time and time again: you, my sweet friend, you are enough. Thank you for everything."

It's understandable that Meghan hasn't used her social media for a while as she's quickly finding out that being a member of the royal family is a full time job.
As we've mentioned before, there are tons of things Markle won't be able to do once she ties the knot with Prince Harry, such as no more selfies, no more autographs and definitelyno political posts.
That last one might be tough for Markle - the former UN ambassador's Instagram account was unapologetically political, as Markle used it to come out against Brexit and show her support for Hillary Clinton's US presidential nomination.
This won't be the end of Meghan on the world of social media though - she's likely to join Harry, Will and Kate on the Kensington Palace Twitter account which shows what the young royals are up to across the world.
Losing her personal outlets online might rankle a bit for Markle, but hey, she's marrying a prince. It can't be all bad.
