Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Just Unfollowed Everyone on Instagram...Again

The Sussexes have done it again. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal Instagram account just unfollowed everyone...but it's not because they're doing a digital detox for summer.

To honor Pride Month this June, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Instagram account, @SussexRoyal, posted a tribute to the LGBTQ+ community, and unfollowed all previous accounts in order to follow 11 new profiles.

The caption to their recent Pride Month tribute post, besides containing a sweet Princess Diana tribute, explains the change in the accounts that @SussexRoyal follows. A month ago, Meghan and Harry unfollowed everyone (including Prince William and Kate Middleton's account of @KensingtonRoyal) except for a handful of accounts that highlight mental health awareness and charities geared toward mental health month for May.

The royal couple is sticking to the same plan for June, and is now following only 11 accounts that focus on the LGBTQ+ community, AIDS awareness and human rights. The accounts are LGBTQ, It Gets Better Project, the Human Rights Campaign, the Elton John AIDS Foundation, Stonewall UK, the Matthew Shepard Foundation, SAGE USA, the AKT charity, PFLAG National, Pride and the Trevor Project.

The post featured images from these accounts, as well as a picture of Harry's late mother, Princess Diana, as she was "meeting one of the patients at AIDS hospice London Lighthouse," per Harper's Bazaar UK.

In the caption, Meghan and Harry's account wrote: "We stand with you and support you," about the charities they chose to "proudly" spotlight this month, showing off their expert emoji skills by adding a little rainbow emoji. "Because it’s very simple: love is love," the caption concluded.

Don't take it personally, Kate and Will. We're sure they'll refollow one day.
