On the first day of every month since May this year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have taken to announcing a cause or theme on their Instagram account where they solely follow a number of accounts who work to help support the chosen cause.

So far they’ve had a Mental Health awareness month, PRIDE month and most recently climate change awareness month, but for the month of August they’re turning things on its head and they’re asking for your help.

That’s right, this month you can be involved with who Harry and Meghan choose to follow, with the royal couple asking their followers to submit suggestions of accounts they should follow who are doing amazing and inspirational work within their community and beyond, titling the theme ‘Forces for Change’.

The theme also happens to reflect the title of Duchess Meghan’s guest-edited issue of British Vogue, which goes on sale on August 2nd.

The question “Who is your force for change?” sits on the Sussex’s signature blue background for the image of the Instagram post with the caption dishing the details about what the ‘Forces for Change’ month will entail.

“For the month of August we look to you for help. We want to know who YOUR Force for Change is,” begins the caption.

“Each month, we change the accounts we follow to highlight various causes, people or organisations doing amazing things for the communities and the world at large.

“Over the next few days please add your suggestions into the comments section: someone you look up to, the organisation doing amazing work that we should all be following, an account that inspires you to be and do better (or that simply makes you feel good), or handle that brims with optimism for a brighter tomorrow.”

They explain that they will choose 15 accounts and follow them on Monday August 5th, as a way of acknowledging the Forces for Change in all of our lives.

Since launching their Instagram account in April the royal couple have already racked up 9.2 million followers and even broke the Guinness World Record for being the fastest Instagram account to reach a million followers in 24 hours and were recently named in TIME’s Top 25 Most Influential People on the Internet list.
