Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just unfollowed all the accounts they had been following on their SussexRoyal Instagram account, in a move that left royal fans scratching their heads.

However, the royal rebels’ shock social clear out is actually linked to Meghan’s latest venture as guest editor of British Vogue, and she has asked fans for their suggestions on who they should follow – and, in turn, highlight – this month on the social media app. 

Unsurprisingly, the Duke and Duchess announced the changes on a post to Instagram.

After explaining the reasons behind them changing the accounts they follow each month, they asked for help in selecting 15 accounts their followers believe are ‘forces for change’. 

“For the month of August we look to you for help. We want to know who YOUR Force for Change is…. Each month, we change the accounts we follow to highlight various causes, people or organisations doing amazing things for their communities and the world at large,” the couple posted. 

“Over the next few days please add your suggestions into the comments section: someone you look up to, the organisation doing amazing work that we should all be following, an account that inspires you to be and do better (or that simply makes you feel good), or the handle that brims with optimism for a brighter tomorrow.

“We will choose 15 accounts and follow them next Monday, as we spend the month of August acknowledging the Forces for Change in all of our lives.”

The 15 women on the cover are Adwoa Aboah, Adut Akech, Ramla Ali, Jacinda Ardern, Sinead Burke, Gemma Chan, Laverne Cox, Jane FondaSalma Hayek Pinault, Jameela Jamil, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Francesca Hayward, Yara Shahidi, Greta Thunberg and Christy Turlington Burns.

She received criticism, however, for leaving out Queen Elizabeth from the line up.
