However, it’s all been cleared up by royal commentator Omid Scobie, who revealed just why Meghan’s account reappeared.

He tweeted: “For those of you asking, Duchess Meghan is not making a return to Instagram. You can blame a system glitch for her account resurfacing on the app this morning.”

As well as a successful acting career, Meghan also built up a large online community as a lifestyle blogger, amassing lots of followers on her Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Earlier this year, a source told the Daily Star that Meghan was “missing her friends” after quitting social media.

The insider revealed: “She is missing her friends and also the wider circle she had on social media.

“She’s finding things harder than she thought and it will take time to adjust.”

Meghan is now focusing on preparing to welcome her first child with Harry after they announced the exciting news in October.
