The royal couple shared nine sweet photos that included special moments from their Australia trip last fall. One of the pics saw the pair greeting flag-waving fans in London, while another saw Harry shaking a military member's hand. Meghan was also seen hugging women involved with the Hubb Community Kitchen, which was started after a fire broke out at London's Grenfell Tower high-rise in 2017, killing 72 people.
Upon creating the account, they have amassed 1.8 million followers. Most of them took to the comment section to share their excitement and celebrate the pair joining the photo-sharing platform. The official account of Instagram even commented, "Ummm... hello! Welcome (heart emoji) We are so happy you are here."
Meanwhile, Princess Eugenie is taking the celebratory in a more special way. In honor of the new Instagram page, the cousin of Prince Harry posted a sweet photo of the royal couple sharing a laugh during their November 2017 engagement photo call to her own account.
"Welcome cousins," so the 29-year-old royal captioned the photos.
