It seems that Meghan Markle isn’t the only royal with a knack for Instagram. It looks like Prince Harry is also joining on the fun as well. The young Prince took a shot from the sky of Abel Tasman Park in New Zealand, which was shared on Kensington Palace’s Instagram Story on Monday.
Even with the not-so-perfect gloomy weather, the beauty of the land was evident in the image of a lake surrounded by mountains. “Traveling to the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park,” the post was captioned with a helicopter emoji and a photo credit to the Duke of Sussex.
This post from Prince Harry, 34, comes just days after his wife, Meghan, 37, made her own contribution to Kensington Palace social media. The Duchess took a sweet photo of her husband as they were rehearsing their speeches for the Invictus Games’ closing ceremony on Saturday. In the black and white photo, Harry walks across the stage in a dark button-down shirt as he holds a microphone. “? The Duchess of Sussex,” the tweet says in part, making it clear Meghan was the photographer.
The photo was posted via the Kensington Palace Twitter and Instagram accounts, which is an account shared by Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle. This was the first image taken by Meghan that fans could see ever since she deleted any account her had on Twitter and Instagram after her engagement to Harry in December of 2017. Royals, with the exception of Princess Eugenie, do not have individual social media accounts.
Before giving up all her social media account before becoming a royal, Meghan was actually a pretty active user on all social media outlets. She regularly posted on both her Twitter and Instagram page. She also had social media account for her now-deleted lifestyle blog, The Tig, which she often updated. And now that she is a royal, she has found another way to use her social media skills, and that is through the shared Kensington Palace social accounts.
The couple visited the Abel Tasman National Park, where they learned more about its local conservation program. When they arrived at the park, which is famous for its golden beaches, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were welcomed by a traditional welcome ceremony, where Meghan proved that she had perfected the traditional hongi greeting.
The park is located on the northeastern tip of New Zealand’s South Island. Harry offered a personal message when they arrived on the island via helicopter, saying, “From myself, my wife and our little bump, we are so grateful to be here. We bring blessings from my grandmother the Queen and our family. We are so grateful for your hospitality and the work to look after this beautiful place.”
