She explained that the “personal choice to not have any account” was for her “own self-preservation”.

Meghan continued: “So I don’t know what’s out there, and in many ways that’s helpful for me.”

Meghan reportedly shut down her personal accounts months before marrying Prince Harry in 2018.

Speaking further, Meghan went on to call social media “very unhealthy” for a lot of the people using it – and said she feels concerned for them.

She told the summit: “I have a lot of concerns for people that have become obsessed with it.

“People who are addicted to drugs are called users and people who are on social media are called users and there is something algorithmically that is in there that is creating this obsession and I think it’s very unhealthy for a lot of people.”
