Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ‘are quitting social media for good’.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will never return to social media after claiming to have dealt with an ‘almost unsurvivable’ amount of abuse, a source has claimed.
Harry and Meghan stopped posting to their Sussex Royal Instagram and Twitter accounts last year, while hinting that they could quit the sites.
And now a source close to them has told the Sunday Times they will not use social networks to promote their new Archewell Foundation and have no plans to return in a personal capacity.
The couple have frequently spoken out about the abuse they recieve online, despite continuing to use online media to promote their ‘progressive’ new roles in the US – including most-recently via a podcast on Spotify.
The pair have also singed a £100million deal with Netflix to produce TV series, films and children’s shows for the streaming service.
Harry and Meghan originally became disillusioned with social media after receiving ‘hate’ online during their time as working royals, but have continued to garner attention through projects with Netflix and Spotify.
It comes a year after the couple announced they were stepping back from official duties and their latest decision to leave social media for good signals a further step away from their existence as royals.
