The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have refreshed their Instagram following list again! They have shaken up their page again this month and are now following 17 selected Instagram accounts.
The couple has returned from their 10 day tour last week, and inspired by it, they asked their 9.6 million followers to suggest worthwhile people and causes related to the community theme.

We want to thank everyone who made a suggestion or kindly shared a positive story! We have now updated the accounts we follow for this month to reflect many of your suggestions! Thank you!
These organisations represent the shared value of togetherness – one that The Duke and Duchess experienced so deeply while on tour in Southern Africa.
We asked you to suggest organisations you enjoy volunteering for, ones that make you feel proud to be a part of and ones that put those in need of support, first. These accounts showcase what it means to be a community across all levels of society, working hard toward the goal of ensuring everyone, no matter what your background is, feels a part of something positive.
Thank you again for contributing and shining a light on these accounts – please take a moment to discover these incredible organisations and learn how you can support!”
