Harry and Meghan’s Instagram following has soared to more than 9 million followers.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s social media account is on the verge of overtaking William and Kate’s – just three months after it was launched.

Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, hit 9 million followers at the weekend.

Over the past few weeks Harry and Meghan’s fanbase has closed in on the Cambridges’ following, with Kensington Royal now only ahead of them by 500,000 followers.

On Saturday, the Sussex Royal account unveiled a picture of Archie’s christening at Windsor Castle.

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.
