If you are on Royal Baby Watch like us, we’ve got the perfect Instagram account for you. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have officially launched their own Instagram, and we are don’t know if we should jump for joy or give a proper curtsy.

Their first official post leads with a monogram featuring a crown and the letters H and M woven together, followed by a picture of the adorable couple greeting onlookers at a recent outing and a number of other photos documenting their world travel.

“Welcome to our official Instagram,” the caption reads. “We look forward to sharing the work that drives us, the causes we support, important announcements, and the opportunity to shine a light on key issues. We thank you for your support and welcome you to @sussexroyal. – Harry & Meghan.”

Great, now give the people what they want – baby bump shots!

It seems like the rest of the world is just as excited as we are, because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle broke world records with their shared Instagram account. According to the Guinness World Records, the Duke and Duchess’ Instagram account amassed more than one million followers in record-breaking time. The couple reached the million-follower milestone in just five hours and 45 minutes. The previous title holder was Korean popstar Kang Daniel, who hit the mark in 11 hours and 36 minutes earlier this year.

Earlier this month, it was announced that Harry and Meghan would officially be splitting their household from the William and Kate. The four royals had all been appearing on the Kensington Royal Instagram account. However, that account will now be dedicated to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three adorable children.

While Meghan is on maternity leave from her royal duties and sources say her due date is late April, fans of the couple will surely be checking their new account to get updates on the mom-to-be and of course, all the baby news.
