Meghan Markle Explained Why She Deleted Her Social Media Accounts


Meghan Markle spoke candidly at Fortune‘s Most Powerful Next Gen summit Tuesday, talking via video chat about leaving social media and her concerns about the addictive potential of online life. “For my own self-preservation, I have not been on social media for a very long time,” she said, as People reports.

“I had a personal account years ago, which I closed down, and then we had one through the institution and our office that was in the U.K. that wasn’t managed by us—that was a whole team—and so I think that comes with the territory for the job you have,” Meghan continued. “I’ve made a personal choice to not have any account, so I don’t know what’s out there, and in many ways that’s helpful for me.”
