KATE Middleton and Prince William’s Instagram account has smashed 10 million followers – 600,000 more than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s social media account, @Kensingtonroyal, broke the milestone figure over the weekend.
Theirs is the first royal account to hit the incredible figure.
Royal fans are praising Kate and Prince William’s, both 37, achievement online, with hundreds of fans posting celebratory comments on their latest posts.
One fan wrote: “The Kensington Palace Instagram account has 10,000,000 million followers! Yes, ten million! Congratulations.”
Another said: “10 million followers!!! Congratulations to you!”
And a third wrote: “You hit the 10 mil mark! Congratulations.”
Someone else posted: “CONGRATULATIONS on reaching 10M followers! Keep up the great work.”
The account was set up in 2015, and was previously shared between both princes and Kate.
Meghan was also featured on the account, but following her marriage to Prince Harry, 34, the Sussex’s set up their own account in April.
The former account became solely used for the Cambridge’s, and Prince Harry and Meghan, 38, use their account to shine a spotlight on different issues each month..
In five months, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s account, @Sussexroyal, has amassed 9.4 million followers.
Both accounts share updates on the work of both couples, with the Cambridge's often posting family photos, with a snap of the five of them used as their profile picture.
The Sussex's have a white-and-blue logo as their main photo, and have used this style throughout their page, which includes quotes from inspirational figures.
The couple also used Instagram to announce the birth of their son, Archie Harrison, in May.
Kate and Prince William’s account has uploaded 1,870 posts, compared to Prince Harry and Meghan’s 77 posts.
The parents to Archie follow a fresh batch of accounts each month, highlighting various charities and causes.

👀 We invite you to take a sneak peek at The Duchess of Cambridge’s #RHSChelsea ‘Back to Nature’ Garden! The woodland wilderness garden aims to get people back to nature, and highlight the benefits of the natural world on our mental and physical wellbeing. Speaking ahead of @The_RHS garden unveiling, The Duchess of Cambridge said: “In recent years I have focussed much of my work on the early years, and how instrumental they are for outcomes later in life. I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults.” Some features of the #ChelseaFlowerShow garden include: 1. A swing seat hanging below the garden’s centrepiece, a high platform tree house, encouraging creative play and discovery for all generations. 2. The high platform tree house is inspired by a bird or animal nest and provides a wonderful place to retreat and look out through the trees. The treehouse is made from chestnut, with hazel, stag horn oak and larch nest cladding. 3/4. The garden is aiming to inspire interaction with the natural environment through its multi-sensory, green and blue plant scheme. The garden will be filled with incredible edibles, plants for craft activities, forest scents and a diverse range of plants, shrubs and trees of different heights and textures. The garden forms part of Her Royal Highness’s ongoing work on early childhood development and her mission to support efforts that give every child the best possible start in life. The Duchess has committed to making early childhood development the focus of her work in the years to come, and believes that providing children with the opportunity to spend time outdoors can play an important role.

The Royal Foundation charity, previously a joint venture, was also split, becoming the Cambridge’s charity.
The name was changed to The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, just 10 months after amending it to include Meghan.
The Duke of Duchess of Sussex unveiled plans for their own charity, to be run from Buckingham Palace, in June.
