The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have set up their own official Instagram account.
Prince Harry and wife Meghan, who are expecting a baby this month, said @SussexRoyal would be used to share the work that drives them, and important announcements.
The move comes as the duke and duchess are splitting their household from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, whose Instagram account is @KensingtonRoyal.
Meghan and Harry's new household will be based at Buckingham Palace, while William - the future King - and Kate will remain at Kensington Palace.
In a message on their first post, Harry and Meghan thanked people for their support, saying: "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 & Meghan."
It was accompanied by an image bearing a white version of couple's royal cypher - the entwined initials H and M below a coronet - on a navy background.
Kensington Palace's Twitter feed introduced the new account, saying: "Welcome to Instagram, SussexRoyal!"
