Meghan Markle’s British Fashion Awards photo booth video mysteriously removed from Instagram account

Meghan Markle posed for a rare photo booth gif during Monday night’s British Fashion Awards, but the video mysteriously disappeared from one Instagram account.

The British Fashion Council, the organization behind the Fashion Awards, posted a fun photo booth snap of the Duchess of Sussex cradling her baby bump while posing alongside Givenchy’s artistic director Clare Waight Keller and “Gone Girl” star Rosamund Pike. The post was up on its Instagram page Tuesday, but by Wednesday morning the black-and-white video was removed.

The organization, instead, kept another post of Markle presenting Keller with the British Designer of the Year award.

It’s unclear why the post was removed from its Instagram page. Fox News’ request for a statement from the British Fashion Council was not immediately returned.


The gif has been shared with other fan accounts and is still up on event photographer Yvan Fabing’s Instagram.

Members of the royal family usually do not pose for photos unless done by an official royal photographer. Markle deleted her personal Instagram and Twitter accounts in January ahead of her marriage to Prince Harry. Kensington Palace said Markle decided to shut the accounts down because she hasn’t used them “for some time.”

However, there appears to be an unspoken rule that active members of the royal family should not have personal accounts. The palace has several accounts that share official photos of the royal family.

Markle broke another royal tradition Monday night when she wore dark nail polish to complement her asymmetrical black Givenchy dress. Although it’s not an official protocol, it’s widely known Queen Elizabeth II does not approve of colorful nail polish on members of the royal family, U.K.’s OK! Magazine previously reported.
