It’s the end of a (social media) era.
Today, Meghan Markle shut down her Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages. While this is absolutely not unexpected, the timing of the closures (right after the Brixton engagement) was a surprise. It marks the end of Meghan’s private social media and the début of her Royal one (through Kensington Palace). We’ll always remember gems like this:
We are sad that Meghan’s social media platforms were taken down, if for no other reason than it felt like we could still connect to the real Meghan. We could see what she eats, buys, wears, does, etc. and made her so relatable to many.
Her social media accounts may be gone… But they will certainly live on! We have many of them saved through our archives, and we’ve been identifying items from them on the blog for a long time. Here are a handful of our favourites:

I have her instagram pictures saved because I love looking at them and because I knew this would happen. That doesn’t make me a creep does it?? lol
Haha Tcela. I say do what makes you happy – so no, you aren’t a creep. I actually thought it would have happened earlier that she closed her accounts.
Lulu, Yes I was expecting them to have been shut down earlier too! Thanks for not thinking I’m a creep! lol
Not a creep at all! You and about half of the world’s journalists. We have most of them saved too… We’d love to see your collection though, maybe drop us a line firstname.lastname@example.org and we can chat! xo

Nooo!! Was just perusing her Instagram account yesterday to get some fashion inspiration! Luckily we have this site now!
Darn!!! I’m so computer illiterate that I never thought to save any pics ?
@Admin, I sent another email.
@Tecla – would you share those pictures with me too, please? I’ve grown very fond of browsing through her instagram (the Tig as well) for inspiration and good mood. I figured she might close her personal account but I was hoping the blog would remain opened. Kind of miss the happy and inspiring photos she had on both.
@Tecla – I would also love if you could share your pictures with me as well! I was kicking myself that I didn’t save Meghan’s instagram posts before she shut it down. I’ve definitely been missing browsing through them and reading her uplifting words (and getting style tips from her!!).
Thank you so, so much if you are able to share!
Hey you guys! Sorry for taking a minute to reply. My email is email@example.com. Send me a message and I’ll send you the pics!
