Princess Eugenie Just Joined Instagram With a Never-Before-Seen Engagement Photo
Given that Meghan Markle deleted her social media accounts in advance of her wedding to Prince Harry, one might assume that the royal family is tightening up their digital presence. But the Queen's granddaughter, Princess Eugenie, just launched her own official account.
Not only that, but the young royal's first two posts are quite personal. She debuted her account yesterday with a clip of a speech about her struggle with scoliosis.
"I can think of no better day than today, International Women’s Day, to launch my personal Instagram," reads the caption for the post. "I hope to use this platform to share the causes, passions, and people close to my heart."
Watch the heartfelt conversation below:
Her second post gives followers a peek behind-the-scenes of her engagement photo shoot. The photo, which previously hadn't been shared publicly, shows Eugenie laughing with her fiancé Jack Brooksbank.
"Think Jack said something funny!" she captioned the sweet pic.
While most of the British royals don't have their own social media accounts—Eugenie's father, Prince Andrew, who has an official Twitter is something of an exception—rather they dispatch news through accounts tied to the royal residences. For example, news about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is shared through accounts with handles managed by Kensington Palace.
But other royal families aren't quite so stringent. Princess Madeleine of Sweden, for example, has her own Facebook page with over 900,000 followers, so it's not unheard of in other countries.
