Love, love, love that you cherish and share her memory.

Within minutes, it attracted hundreds of messages of support from adoring fans.

It follows reports earlier this year that the Sussexes had ramped up efforts to raise their profile online by recruiting a social media manager.

MailOnline claimed that Harry and Meghan had taken on a new member of staff to look after social networking, following the initial success of their shared Instagram account.

Their page, @sussexroyal, launched in April and by June had amassed a following of 8.5 million, with that number now standing at 9.3 million.

Their follower count remains around 500,000 behind that of the the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, whose @kensingtonroyal account was set up in 2015.
