Just hours after launching their official Instagram account, @sussexroyal, it looks like the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have broken a Guinness World Record.
According to royal commentator Omid Scobie, Meghan and Harry's Instagram account reached one million followers less than six hours after the account was launched, breaking the Guinness World Record for the 'Fastest time to gain one million followers' on Instagram.
The couple have broken previous record-holder K-Pop star Kang Daniel's record of 11 hours 36 minutes, by almost six hours.
The Guinness World Records have since confirmed the news, revealing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reached one million followers after five hours and 45 minutes.
22-year-old Daniel had beaten Pope Francis' record earlier this year in January.
And according to Medium, Benjamin Wareing reports Instagram even partially crashed, due the high demand of people eager to follow the royal couple.
Meghan and Harry launched their official Instagram on Tuesday, breaking away from the joint account they previously shared with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, @KensingtonRoyal.
Their first post featured a carousel of images which included pictures of themselves during royal tours as undertaking their respective charity work.
They captioned the image: "'Welcome to our official Instagram; 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 and Meghan."
They've also been welcomed to the social media platform by other members of the Royal Family including Harry's cousin Princess Eugenie and her father Prince Andrew, the official Royal Family's Instagram account and the Kate and William, who introduced the account via @KensingtonRoyal.
The creation of their new Instagram account is a natural move for the couple, who recently announced they were splitting from the Kensington Palace household to focus on their own work as separate courts.
The move also comes just before the arrival of Meghan and Harry's first child, which means the birth of Baby Sussex will no doubt be announced on the social media platform.
While we're not expecting the same food, wine and dog snaps Meghan may have loved when her now deleted personal account was active, we're hoping we'll still get treated to some adorable pics of Baby Sussex when he or she arrives this month!
