Before meeting Prince Harry, Meghan Markle was a fairly active user of social networks: the former actress had a page on Instagram and Twitter and even a personal blog. However, after becoming a member of the royal family, she deleted all accounts, as required by the protocol. Now, after she and Prince Harry resigned from themselves royal powers, she is in no hurry to return to the virtual world. She admitted this in a video interview with Fortune.
I haven't been on social networks for a long time for my own peace of mind. I had a personal account many years ago, which I deleted. And then we had a work profile in the UK, which was not run by us - it was a whole team,
- said the 39-year-old duchess.
"How can I make this world a better place for Archie?"
Megan also stated that leaving social networks was her personal choice and now she does not follow what is happening there.
It was my personal choice not to have a social media account, so I don’t know what’s going on there, and this is good for me in many ways. I am worried about people who have become obsessed with this. It has become a part of everyday culture for many people, it is as addictive as many others,
- she said.

Megan also noted that motherhood made her bolder.
You start to worry about the world the children will have. And if you yourself are ready to endure something, you do not want your children to be in a vulnerable position because of this. Every day I think how can I make this world a better place for Archie? These are our common views with my husband,
She said, adding that she was trying not to put her family at risk.
I try to be very transparent about what I say, not to argue, but instead to talk about things that seem very direct, like voting rights. I would not be proud of myself as a mother if I knew that I did not contribute to making the world a better place,
- she concluded.
