After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry launched their very own Instagram account last month, royal fans have been on tenterhooks waiting for the couple to post a new photo - mostly down to fact the Duchess of Sussex is about to give birth any day now…
But while there’s been no royal baby announcement just yet, Meghan and Harry took to their social media to post a very inspiring message at midnight last night.
Sharing a collage of pictures to commemorate Mental Health Awareness Month, they commended “all the incredible work” people are doing to promote mental well-being and self-care around the world.
The caption reads, “May is Mental Health Awareness Month in the US and May 13-19 is Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK.
“To pay tribute to all of the incredible work people across the globe are doing in this space, we are hoping to shine a light on several Instagram accounts that promote mental well-being, mental fitness, body positivity, self-care, and the importance of human connection – to not just hear each other, but to listen.
“There are countless organisations doing amazing work for mental health – please consider the accounts we’ve highlighted as a small snapshot of this global support network. We are all in this together.”
The Duke and Duchess have since unfollowed the 23 Instagrams they were originally following – including fellow royal Princess Eugenie, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s account, the Royal Family and Clarence House – to make it easier for fans to find the 16 accounts which promote mental health.
Organisations which they are now following include Talk Space, iWeigh, Bryony Gordon and Anxiety UK Official.
Heads Together, the mental health initiative led by Harry and Meghan along with Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, is also among them.
The caption continues, “Each month we will honour this same concept and change the accounts we solely follow based on a different theme or cause.
“Please go to our homepage and click ‘following’ to see each of the select accounts and find out more about their work.”
And fans have been quick to comment, with one writing, “Thank you both for bringing awareness to a subject that sorely needs to come out into the open.”
“Thank you for everything you do for mental health ❤️ it’s so important,” said another.
