Meghan Markle Is the Hands Behind the Sussex Royal Instagram Captions
The Sussex Royal Instagram captions are literally managed by a Princess. Yes, according to reports Meghan Markle Masterminds her own Instagram captions.
When the Sussexes separated their household from that of Prince William and Kate, and decided to launch their own Instagram account, @SussexRoyal, Meghan Markle reportedly drafted many of her own posts.
According to the new biography “Finding Freedom” reporters Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand stated that one of Harry and Meghan’s “core frustrations” with their position within the royal family was their “inability to speak for themselves.” Instead, they had to go through the royal family’s communications team.
“Launching the account was a somewhat liberating experience for Meghan,” an aide shared with the authors. “Not having a platform of her own to talk directly to the public was one of the toughest changes for her, especially after building so much of her own brand on Instagram and her blog. @SussexRoyal meant that she finally had a place to curate.”
This comes as no surprise due to the fact that Meghan Markle was already a hands on person when it comes to managing her career.
Prior to Markle ran a blog called “The Tig”. The blog focused on travel, life, and food. Meghan would often post photos of adventure and lifestyle that was noticeably managed by her.
As she closed that chapter of her life she wrote a heart warming letter to the readers saying, “To all my Tig friends, 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.
For Markle taking on the authority of her and Harry’s Instagram account came natural and nurturing. According to the source, “She and Harry were involved in the aesthetic decisions for the handle, including selecting the rich shade of blue often used as a background color for quotes, and they made the choice to add a white border to photos. “Meghan drafted a lot of the posts herself in the early days,” reveal the authors. “It was one of the things that kept her occupied during her final days of pregnancy.”
