Prince Harry and his actress wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, recently broke a global Instagram record by becoming the fastest account to attract 1 million followers. It took the glamorous royals less than six hours to reach the mark under their new @sussexroyal name. Two days later, they had 3.4 million followers. They now have more than 5 million.
Why, then, 24 hours after launching @sussexroyal, would Harry be warning (not for the first time) of the dangers of sites like Instagram? He argued: "Social media is more addictive than drugs and alcohol, and it's more dangerous because it's normalized and there are no restrictions to it." He went on to call for the Fortnite video game to be banned, claiming "it's created to addict—an addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It's so irresponsible."
