There has been a lot of rumors circulating about a rift between Britain’s Prince William and Prince Harry and their families for some time now and those rumors were amped up this week when The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (William & Kate) unfollowed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (Harry & Meghan) on Instagram.  In a move that many social media people consider the ultimate insult, it actually is for a pretty good reason. Back on May 1st Harry and Meghan's official @SussexRoyal Instagram account had a slew of unfollows including his brother and his wife as well as Queen Elizabeth II!  The unfollowing was done in honor of the month of May, which is Mental Health Awareness Month in the United States. Plus, May 13 through May 19 is Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK. The royals’ post went on to state that they are "hoping to shine a light on several Instagram accounts that promote mental well-being, mental fitness, body positivity, self-care, and the importance of human connection — to not just hear each other, but to listen" along with a few mental health accounts they hope others follow.  But that doesn’t fully explain the snub to others in the family but it did get people talking and perhaps it was just the right move the young Royals hoped would happen to draw attention to the message the couple were wanting to spread.  The post went on to state that moving forward, they would "honor this same concept and change the accounts we solely follow based on a different theme or cause."  The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Instagram account (@SussexRoyal) currently has 5.5 million followers.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month in the US and May 13-19 is Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK. To pay tribute to all of the incredible work people across the globe are doing in this space, we are hoping to shine a light on several Instagram accounts that promote mental well-being, mental fitness, body positivity, self-care, and the importance of human connection - to not just hear each other, but to listen. There are countless organisations doing amazing work for mental health - please consider the accounts we’ve highlighted as a small snapshot of this global support network. We are all in this together. We invite you to explore the extraordinary stories of strength, and the commitment to kindness as seen in the above accounts. Each month we will honour this same concept and change the accounts we solely follow based on a different theme or cause. Please go to our homepage and click “following” to see each of the select accounts and find out more about their work. Please note: Images shared are from some of the handles we are now following
