Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are cleaning house and unfollowed literally everyone on Instagram. But, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, before the backlash comes pouring in, also allow them to explain themselves. Both are known for highlighting the charities through their social media, the parents of Archie Harrison have asked for fans, to nominate any 15 accounts should be crowned with their follow, later this month.
“For the month of August we look to you for help,” the duo wrote. “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”
“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,” the message continued. “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.”
That post perfectly goes hand in hand with theme of British Vogue’s September “”Forces of Change”” issue, which was edited by Meghan guest, and in her historic role, ever socially conscious royal took the opportunity to step away from the very fashion focused topics and highlighted 15 “brilliant female changemakers.”
Turning down the chance to grace the cover herself—”She felt that it would be in some ways a ‘boastful’ thing to do for this particular project,” the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful explained—Meghan turned the spotlight on the “women she admires,” including Yara Shahidi, Gemma Chan, Selma Hayek, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacindo Ardern and climate change champion Greta Thurnberg among others.
