Meghan took her accounts down when she became a royal family member, previously revealing it was for her "own self-preservation".
"For my own self-preservation, I have not been on social media for a very long time," she told People back in 2020.
"I had a personal account years ago, which I closed down, and then we had one through the institution and our office that was in the U.K. that wasn’t managed by us, that was a whole team.
"So I think that comes with the territory for the job you have."

Meghan, who had a new victory as her new podcast Archetypes reached instant success, also opened up on why she feels so strongly about keeping the majority of images of her children, Archie and Lilibet, private when she was following the royal family's social media rules.
"There’s literally a structure by which if you want to release photos of your child, as a member of the family, you first have to give them to the Royal Rota," she explained.
"Why would I give the very people that are calling my children the N-word a photo of my child before I can share it with the people that love my child?"
