  • The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have suffered a huge loss on social media following their exit from the royal family.

    • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took the world by surprise when they announced they were leaving the royal family back in January.
    • In light of the exit, the pair have suffered a big loss on social media.
    • This royal news comes after it was revealed that the couple are fearing for son Archie’s safety.

    Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle confirmed they were stepping down from their roles as senior members of the royal family at the beginning of the year, leaving the world in shock.

    Following the controversial move, the couple, who share one-year-old son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, moved across the pond to begin a new life in Los Angeles.

    In light of their resignation from royal life, the pair abandoned their official Instagram account, Sussex Royal, no longer sharing updates for the eyes of their 11.4 million followers.

    Harry and Meghan shared one final post on the Sussex family page back in March, thanking their loyal fans for their support and love.

    The iconic duo certainly haven’t been elusive, though. They shared an adorable video of Archie on his first birthday, showing a detailed insight into their family life.

    In the footage, shared on the Save The Children UK Instagram account, Meghan can be seen reading a sweet storybook to the adorable tot, while doting dad Harry can be heard cooing and cheering from behind the camera.

    She got the job ✨ ⠀ It is always a special moment when clients let us know they have been successful at interview. ⠀ For the past seven weeks we have been offering phone coaching and wardrobe parcels filled with workwear essentials to our clients. This virtual service has allowed us to bring the magic of Smart Works into the safety of our client's homes. ⠀ Our patron, The Duchess of Sussex, recently surprised one of our clients during her coaching session. ⠀ We are so thrilled that following her virtual appointment, our client got the job and will be starting her internship during the summer months. ⠀ It was so wonderful to hear her excitement on the phone when she called to let us know she had been successful. She said; “Thank you, once again, not only for this opportunity but also for the incredible work that Smart Works achieves – it was a true honour to be a part of this!” ⠀ Congratulations from the team here at Smart Works, we cannot wait to see what's in store for you next. ⠀ #successfulclient #interview #gotthejob

    Of course, the video left fans of Meghan and Harry swooning and delighted to see a glimpse little Archie on his special day.

    The prince and the former actress have been keeping in touch with the world via video calls throughout the pandemic, too.

    Meghan recently chatted away to a young girl who had been helped in finding work by Smart Works, a charity the Duchess has worked closely with in recent years.
