Why Can Princess Eugenie Have An IG Account, But Meghan Can’t?

Princess Eugenie of York, Queen Elizabeth’s 28-year-old granddaughter, is currently the only member of the British royal family to have a public Instagram account. Her Instagram includes a mix of public and personal posts that make you believe that it’s not run by an employee of the royal house. In it, Princess Eugenie is just as likely to post a photo of one of her charities as she is an image of her dogs.

With this information in mind, why did Meghan Markle have to erase her entire social media presence once she got engaged to Prince Harry?

It’s complicated, but according to The Daily Mail, this is due to the fact that Princess Eugenie and her sister are not working royals, meaning they don’t fulfill engagements in an official capacity. Both princesses have full time jobs, with Eugenie working at an art gallery. They’re also not listed on the Royal website, which is apparently damning evidence.

Even though there’s not an explicit rule stating that royals can’t have social media accounts, it goes against the royal protocol, which is why there are several social media accounts designed to present the royals’ interests and points of view. Both Kensington Palace’s Twitter and Instagram accounts describe it as the “official account of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and their Royal Foundation, based at Kensington Palace.”

There’s also a Royal Family Twitter which posts “Updates, pictures and videos from Buckingham Palace about the work and activities of The Queen and members of The Royal Family.”
