In today’s day and age, social media reigns supreme. Nowadays, we communicate through selfies, we slide into DM’s, and we even throw a dog filter on top of our whole lives – and the world doesn’t bat an eyelid. With the likes of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram filling up our time, it’s easy to believe that we’re all connected in one way or another. After all, how else are we supposed to keep track of our favorite celebrities and see how the other half live? By scrolling through our Instagram feeds, we can keep up with the Kardashians, we can be like the Beckhams, we can view the Vergaras (Sofia is of course our favorite), and apparently we can even watch the Windsors! Well, a soon-to-be Windsor. Of course, we’re talking about Meghan Markle, who will this year get hitched to the royal bachelor, Prince Harry. With a new family to impress, we bet the Queen won’t be happy with these deleted Instagram posts of Meghan Markle’s life before her engagement…
Thanks to social media, us ordinary folk can watch as our favorite celebrities go about their daily lives. We can check out their epic (and expensive) car collection, we can see them at work, we can get a sneak peek into their Hollywood mansions, we can witness their girl gangs in action, and we can even get the scoop on a new celeb couple. The opportunities for social media are endless, and luckily, many of the most famous celebrities are more than happy to update their fans on their activities. With a race to get the most followers – can anyone beat Selena Gomez’s 132 million Instagram followers?! – celebrities post photo after photo and video after video, and we lap it up. Naturally, there are some celebrities who are more popular than others, but right now, we’re totally crushing on Meghan Markle.
In July 2016, the rest of the world went about their business, while the Suits actress, Meghan Markle, was introduced to Prince Harry by a mutual friend. After all, what else does a beautiful actress have to do on a Tuesday morning? After their initial meeting, the pair hit it off (we’d expect nothing less) and started secretly dating away from the public eye. In October that year, rumors began to circulate that the previously eligible bachelor was off the market, and a month later Royal Kensington Palace released an official statement that the duo was a couple. As if that wasn’t enough to make the whole of England and America swoon with excitement, their relationship was taken to the next level when they announced their engagement on November 27, 2017 – and now we eagerly await the royal wedding, and our invitation, which must have been lost in the mail…
However, with a new royal life ahead of her, we bet Meghan is probably regretting these deleted Instagram posts of her life before her engagement.
The real Meghan Markle
Ever since her first appearance in Suits in 2011, Meghan Markle has been the source of much affection – and it’s not hard to see why. From her impeccable acting talent to her beautiful appearance and her celebrity status, the soon-to-be royal has amassed a whopping 3 million followers on Instagram. In the past, she has shared snippets of her life before her engagement to Prince Harry. Yet, sometimes she’s shared a little bit too much, and we can’t imagine ol’ Queen Liz will be too happy about this…
Like most celebrities, Meghan Markle spends most of her free time traveling the world and exploring new and exotic places – not that we’re jealous or anything. However, Meghan has always had an excuse. As the creator of her own blog, The Tig, Meghan used her travel opportunities to update her blog and her followers. During a visit to Greece, Meghan took this hydrating photograph of herself with the ocean in the background. We can’t imagine Meghan will be drinking any more of this stuff when she gets hitched. Tea and crumpets for you, Meg.
One of the best things we love about celebrities is that we have all have something in common. After all, who DOESN’T love to take a selfie? Just a month before her fairytale meeting with Prince Harry, Meghan posted this slick selfie on her Instagram page, which resulted in a hefty liking spree from her followers. Unfortunately, we won’t be seeing any more of these anytime soon, as it’s against the royal rules to take selfies. Apparently, the Queen thinks they’re ‘strange.’ You and us both, Liz.
During her highest reign of popularity on Suits, Meghan was also reigning supreme on her blog and posted weekly updates on her life, her health, wellbeing, and even fashion and style. It’s no secret that Meghan is a woman of natural style and beauty, but we can’t imagine this look would go down well in Buckingham Palace. In fact, members of the royal family are never seen in casual clothing, as they are expected to be well presented at all times. Even Prince George has to wear tailored trousers around the house!
Thanks to her impressive net worth (allegedly around $ 5 million), Meghan Markle has been able to enjoy the finer things in life and has often taken herself and her friends on beautiful summer holidays to the likes of Ibiza. In August 2016, the Duchess-to-be did just that and spent the evenings on the White Isle drinking Tequila sodas with her best pals and watching the sunset in front of them. However, we reckon Meghan might have to change her tipple of choice, unless the Queen loves a good Tequila Slammer, of course…
A cheeky package
We love nothing more than getting home after a long day, getting into our pajamas, and sitting down to watch a good movie, and it seems Meghan Markle is no different. Nevertheless, it seems our pajamas of choice are a little different. While we get ours from the local Walmart or Target, Meghan seems to get cheeky packages from expensive brands. Somehow, we just can’t imagine this parcel turning up on the doorstep of their newlywed home in Nottingham Cottage.
In an Instagram post in June 2016, Meghan Markle proved that she was not shy in front of the camera. Uploading a beautiful full-face selfie, Meghan showed off her natural glow and her glistening smile – but it seems Meghan will have to learn how to be more reserved as she enters into her new life with Prince Harry. As a rule, the Royal Family have to lead a relatively quiet life, which means she won’t be able to post selfies like this one, or even sign autographs for her fans.
A deleted photo
Although Meghan still has kept most of her Instagram photographs on her account, she did get in hot water when one of her co-stars posted a saucy picture of her…and quickly deleted it. In August 2017, Patrick J. Adams decided to post a throwback photograph of himself with his Suits co-star, Meghan Markle, on his Instagram page. According to the actor, he posted the old photograph of the pair of them on set, before placing his phone on silent and going to bed. However, he did not expect the backlash that ensued…
A quick peck
The photograph in question featured a selfie of both Patrick and Meghan and saw Meghan kissing her co-star on the cheek. On his social media page, Patrick captioned the photograph with the innocent ‘Ross and Rachel – the next generation.’ Unfortunately, fans of Meghan and the Royal Family were not impressed with his choice of photo, or his choice of words. Before too long, online trolls bombarded his post with negative comments and insults, and his post was taken entirely out of context.
An intimate relationship
Fans of Suits will know the intimate relationship Meghan Markle has with her co-star, but they’ll also know that it’s all for the cameras. On the show, Meghan’s character Rachel Zane has a heated relationship with Patrick’s character, Mike Ross – but in reality, they are just friends. As soon as Patrick posted the throwback photo, trolls were quick to believe that Patrick was in competition for her attention. To avoid all of the negative press and to avoid speculation around himself and Meghan, he deleted the photograph.
Like the rest of the world, Meghan loves nothing more than unwinding from work, and chilling out with her friends and family – or even embarking on a solo trip to truly take her mind away from the hustle and bustle of set life. In this photo she uploaded to her Instagram page, Meghan made no secret of the fact that she was getting pretty into the vacation way of life. After all, a balanced diet is a glass in each hand! However, it seems these fun trips may be coming to an end as her Duchess duties take over.
Although The Tig is no longer up and running, Meghan Markle used her platform to check out new and exciting places around the world. In her blog, she wrote about travel and other topics and made sure she knew firsthand what she was talking about. For research purposes, of course. In one of the many travel-related posts on her social media pages, Meghan posted this chilled out snapshot of one of her trips. Could this be a honeymoon destination, perhaps?
A dog’s life
If you’ve been following Meghan Markle on Instagram for a while now, you’ll know that she’s a huge dog lover. For many years, Meghan has been the proud owner of two dogs – a Beagle named Guy and a Labrador-Shepherd mix, Bogart – and has posted numerous photos of herself cuddled up on the couch with them in the past. This love of dogs will come in handy when she visits the Corgis at Buckingham Palace! Let’s hope they like her.
As well as updating her fans on her vacation pictures, Meghan also likes to post about food – because really, who doesn’t? Although this looks like a yummy dish, it’s probably not what she’ll be eating for the rest of her life. With weird and wacky culinary rules to abide by, members of the Royal Family are under strict instructions at the dinner table. Noodles and pasta are off the Buckingham Palace menu, and it’s believed that once the Queen has stopped eating, EVERYBODY stops eating. Even if they’re mid crumpet.
Throughout her career, Meghan Markle has been known for her sense of humor, and her entertaining personality – and she has loved to show this through her social media pages. In this hilarious post a few years ago, Meghan topped her fingers off with berries and posed for a photograph. Although this was a way to get a few laughs, she might want to adopt this look in the future, if she ever wears dark nail varnish in front of the Queen…because dark varnish is a big no-no in the Windsor household apparently.
After posting this snapshot of her vacation on Instagram, many people were wondering where she was, and where she was planning to go next. Although she was probably going back to her swanky hotel to get ready for a night of fun and laughter with her friends, there could always be the chance that she was going to have a quick power nap before the night began. Unfortunately, it was probably one of the last naps she had, as going to bed before the Queen is thought to be strictly forbidden…
Over the course of her Instagram streak, Meghan Markle has made millions of us jealous thanks to her perfect vacation snaps. From the impressive backdrop to the crystal clear water in the background, the drinks on the table, to her outfit, it all looks absolutely magnificent. In the past, Meghan has taken trips by herself, but it seems she won’t be able to continue this after her wedding day, as women are not allowed to travel by themselves. What a shame!
Like most of us on social media, we often take photographs of random moments that make us happy. For the most part, we love to share these snapshots with our nearest and dearest, to give them a little insight into our lives, and spread a little joy. It’s believed that Meghan wanted to do the same when she shared this candid photograph on her Instagram page, while she sat in bed in a silky negligee. Unfortunately, we can’t imagine she’ll be posting any more of these photos anytime soon.
The royal treatment
Although many of us dream of marrying into a royal family and becoming a real-life princess, there is so much more to it than simply wearing a tiara and ball gown 24/7, and bossing people around! There are numerous aspects of the royal life that takes a lot of getting used to – but it seems that Meghan Markle is already getting into the spirit of things. In this quirky Instagram post, Meghan showed the world that she is ready to sit in her bedchambers and rule the world!
All black everything
It’s no secret that black is a hugely flattering color, and Meghan is no stranger to wearing black and taking suggestive photographs such as this one. With the high slit and the skimpy shoes, we bet this is the last time Meghan will wear such a dress – but she will definitely wear this color again. In fact, it is a royal requirement for every member of the Royal Family to have a ready-to-wear funeral outfit with them during every trip to prepare them for any sudden deaths. How lovely…
Like most people in today’s day and age, Meghan Markle is no stranger to Snapchat. In fact, she has often publicized her Snapchat name on her social media channels and wowed her adoring fans with beautiful filters – including the hugely popular dog filter. Meghan posted this dog selfie a couple of years ago, but we can imagine the Queen has since suggested that she delete the app from her phone. Unless she wants Meghan to snap pictures of her and her Corgis, which we would totally appreciate.
A sultry selfie
If you’ve been on Meghan Markle’s Instagram page recently, you would have noticed this photograph as her profile picture. Compete with a sultry pose, ruffled hair and some pretty white sheets; we can’t imagine that this selfie was not taken in the presence of Prince Harry, the Queen, or any other royal. This photograph has amassed nearly 50,000 likes – but we might not be seeing another photo like this in the future. In fact, we might not even see her Instagram page in the future…
The mirror selfie
Although it’s gone out of fashion slightly, the mirror selfie is still a firm favorite for those who love to take a good selfie, and Meghan has taken a fair few in her lifetime. With a pouty look, some fluffy slippers and a cool-looking apartment in the background, Meghan took the world by storm when she posted this selfie. However, with her wedding date looming ever closer, her time on Instagram may soon be coming to an end.
Always the bridesmaid
We all know the phrase, ‘always the bridesmaid, never the bride’ but it seems Meghan’s bridesmaid days are behind her. Instead of donning a dress similar to this one, we can only imagine Meghan will be wearing a one-of-a-kind gown fit for a Princess for her big day. Although she will adopt a new name and lifestyle, Royal rules may mean that Meghan will lose her social media status forever. Yep, as soon as she marries into the Royal Family, Meghan will divorce her online presence.
We may still be graced with her Instagram page (although that isn’t confirmed), Megham will not have control over her own social media pages when she gets hitched. Instead, it will be run by a royal social media manager who will control every post and comment! According to sources close to the family, Meghan will join the likes of Prince Harry and William on the Kensington Royal social media channels. It seems this change is already in action, as Meghan hasn’t posted anything on Instagram since this photograph in April…
