Meghan and Harry split from William and Kate also on social media. The prince and the former actress inaugurate the new Instagram profile. It is simply called @sussexroyal, and seems to be much more informal than that of the in-laws. Another step that shows how the two brothers’ streets are now separated. Moreover, one will be king and the other not.
The first post, in addition to the couple’s coat of arms, is a series of photos of the two: the best of the first year from the Sussex dukes. Nine photos, taken between New Zealand and London, which immortalise them hand in hand or while embracing their subjects.
“Welcome to our official Instagram”, we read as a caption, “We look forward to sharing the work that drives us, the causes we support, important announcements and the opportunity to shed light on key issues. We thank you for your support and welcome you…” Signed, another novelty, simply “Harry & Meghan”. A profile that from the debut seems much more informal than @kensingtonpalace, and much closer to the personal page of Eugenie of York. And that shows, once again, how the “Fantastic Four” are now grown.
Harry and William, united in the name of mother Diana, are now moving along different paths. Regardless of whether the wives – Meghan and Kate – like each other or not. The well-informed, to say the least, at the moment say no: the two women would be too different. But the fundamental difference between the two brothers is another: one will be king, the other not. “In this way they will have the space necessary to develop and grow, without one being in the shadow of the other,” said a source at the Palace. “The work of Harry and Meghan will be very different from that of William and Kate, so it is logical that they have two different teams”.
The Dukes of Sussex, in addition to becoming parents, are setting up new staff at Buckingham Palace, having “detached” from that of Kate and William in Kensington, their former home. “They see it as a new chapter in their lives,” the insider added. And the new Instagram profile proves it. The passage, which is considered the greatest “revolution” at court in recent years, was – of course approved – by the Queen, and by Prince Charles. Buckingham Palace has announced that the new office of the Dukes of Sussex will be composed of a group of press officers, private secretaries and personal assistants. Everyone, however, will report to Her Majesty’s assistant chief.
In this way, Meghan and Harry can recruit new employees more freely than in Kensington. There they had to “share” them with their brother and sister-in-law. The prince and former American actress, according to the magazine, have personally “scoured” the profiles of candidates for the role of new private secretary and personal assistant. The current private secretary, Samantha Cohen, will leave the Sussex after the birth of the child, while the duchess’s personal assistant, Amy Pickerill, will embark on a new path by the end of April.
Last week, the couple has already named the new communications officer, choosing Sara Latham, which played crucial roles for both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. After meeting her, Meghan and Harry immediately thought it was perfect for the job: “It will be fun, but it will be a different structure from Kensington. The two will have to get used to”.
Harry and Meghan plan to be “international ambassadors for the royal family” and will have important roles within the Commonwealth. Their desire is to be as informal as possible. The target? To sail the British monarchy in the new century, lightening the secular protocol. But the last word is always up to His Majesty.
