Meghan Markle Just Deleted All Her Social Media Accounts And People Are Wondering Why

Martha Stewart Weddings

You're casually scrolling down your Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram feed and you're wondering what the soon-to-be royal, Meghan Markle, is up to.

Prince Harry's 36-year-old fiancee hasn't been the most active person on social media after she started dating her future husband, but it was nice to have a candid glimpse into her life.

As of Tuesday January 9, Markle's accounts all gave a message similar to the one below.

The couple announced their engagement to the public on November 27, which made them the most talked about celebrities in the latter part of 2017.

Ever since then, we've scoured the internet trying to learn all we can about the soon-to-be bride. Many people remember her as an actress on the TV series Suits, but most of us don't know much about her life. That's where her social media accounts came in. We thought by following her we could gain exclusive access into the genuine lives of the royal family.

A little over a month after announcing their engagement, Markle deleted all her social media accounts.  

She has yet to give a statement on why she has chosen to go off the social media grid, but there may be a good reason for all this.

Prince William and his wife may shed some light into the future of one of our favorite royal couples.

Markle has been a breaker of tradition ever since she started dating the dashing prince. Her race, humble beginnings, and previous marriage are some of the many reasons this American actress has intrigued the world as she makes her way into the royal family.

Although many royal rules and regulations aren't followed as strictly as they were before, there's one rule that the royal family is pretty strict on - and that's social media.

None of the members of the royal family have their own personal social media accounts.

Markle's future sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, and her husband, Prince William, opened a joint Instagram and Twitter account four years after their marriage, under the handle @kensingtonroyal, which comprises of "photos and videos direct from Kensington Palace about the work and activities of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry."

The soon-to-be royal has also made appearances on these accounts.

A palace source explained that it may not be because of a royal rule, but a personal decision: “Ms. Markle is grateful to everyone who has followed her social media accounts over the years. However as she has not used them for some time she has taken the decision to close them."

We can still find photos of the newly engaged couple on Kate and Prince Williams's social media accounts, but that doesn't mean Prince Harry and Markle won't open their own joint account in the near future.

Only time will tell, in the meantime, we're going to miss pictures like this one below!

The couple will tie the knot on May 19, 2018.
