Meghan Markle's Instagram account has been reactivated

The Duchess of Sussex previously deactivated her account back in 2017

Meghan Markle's Instagram account appears to have been reactivated, after she previously shut it down in 2017 following her engagement to Prince Harry. Fans were shocked to see Meghan's pictures resurface on her account that is verified with three million followers. Her previous posts, with her last being a collage in which she announced the closure of her blog, The Tig, back in April 2017, were available to see. The account was deactivated within minutes though, with a royal source saying it was a "technical issue". 

Meghan's Instagram was momentarily reactivated

Should Meghan begin posting on her Instagram account again, she won't be the only royal to do so. Princess Eugenie, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson all have accounts on the social media site where they regularly post snaps of their work along with throwback photos. Previous photos on Meghan's account includes pictures of her two dogs (one dressed adorably in a Union Jack jumper), a snap of herself enjoying an evening with her close friend, Priyanka Chopra, and behind-the-scenes shots of herself with her cast mates on Suits. The royal also regularly posted life-affirming quotes promoting positivity.
