In the new book written about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the prince's alleged secret Instagram account has been exposed...
Since his big move to LA, the British public have been mourning the loss of their favorite royal, Prince Harry.

Never before had such a popular member of the royal family stepped down from his royal duties...
via: GettyBut he did what he had to do to protect his family.
Now, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex worked tirelessly together to fulfill their royal duties...
via: GettySince their highly-publicized wedding in 2018, the couple took part in many royal tours and visits all around the world.
Naturally, the world fell in love with the new Duchess.
via: Getty ImagesHer beautiful looks and elegant demeanor captured hearts all around the world, and her work for feminism and women's charities has set an excellent example within the royal family.
Cracks began to show early, however...
via: Getty ImagesMeghan was quickly criticized upon her entrance into the royal family, and not all the complaints were because she "wasn't royal enough." A family feud with her father, Thomas Markle, was quickly made very public and, when he didn't attend the wedding, the heat was turned onto Meghan.
Her dad reportedly hasn't met his grandson yet.
via: Good Morning BritainThomas Markle made claims back in 2018 on British television breakfast show, Good Morning Britain, that Meghan had simply "ghosted" him, saying: "I’ve still never met my son-in-law. Why couldn’t Prince Harry have got on a plane and flown to see me to ask for her hand?"
Sources claimed that Meghan cut all ties with her dad...
via: Getty ImagesSources said that "it's a terribly sad situation but Meghan has made the very difficult decision that she doesn't have an active relationship with her father anymore." "It’s obviously heartbreaking for her but she has to protect herself, her husband and her son."
Meghan has also been branded a "diva" by numerous sources since she became royalty.
via: Getty ImagesReports came through that Meghan was extremely high-maintenance in the palace and servers who worked for her had reportedly even quit their jobs due to her behavior. Of course, none of these reports are reliable, but they certainly made their way through newspapers around the world.
And, of course, there were reports of her supposed feuds with Kate Middleton...
via: ShutterstockIt was reported that Meghan left Kate "in tears" after a strict bridesmaid fitting for Princess Charlotte. But, despite many claims that the sisters-in-law are actually very close, tabloids in both the U.K and the U.S. like to state otherwise, saying that Kate is "fed up" of Meghan's high-maintenance attitude.
Meghan's parenting style has also been criticized.
via: Getty ImagesShe was repeatedly mom-shamed after paparazzi snaps emerged of her "awkwardly" holding baby Archie - a struggle that any new mom can totally relate to. Shaming a new parent is completely uncalled for, and this made it very obvious that the press were desperate to stir hate.
Meghan's eventful life was something that the papers simply loved to pick apart...
via: Getty ImagesAnd it seemed that British tabloid paper, The Mail on Sunday, took things a step too far when they published an intimate and private letter that Meghan wrote to her father earlier this year.
The Duke and Duchess had no choice but to take legal action against publishers of the Daily Mail...
via: Getty ImagesThis decision came as Prince Harry made a highly personal attack on the British tabloid press over the treatment of his wife, saying that he could "no longer be a silent witness to her private suffering."
And it was following from this scandal that the couple made their shock announcement.
via: Getty ImagesThe royal couple announced via their joint Instagram page that they were stepping down as senior members of the royal family. "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen," the post read.
The couple explained how they planned to split their time between North America and the UK.
This is a huge deal.
via: Getty ImagesAnd, obviously, their decision has shaken things up. "We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties."
Twitter exploded with reactions to the news, and they were certainly mixed.

Others praised the royal couple for the move.

Apparently, the pair didn't tell anyone about the news, instead opting to break it through Instagram.BBC, no other senior members of the Royal Family were consulted - including the Queen - and Buckingham Palace is "disappointed." The report also claims that senior royals are said to be "hurt" by the controversial announcement.
But can they really blame Meghan and Harry for making this decision?
via: Getty ImagesThe couple, especially Meghan, have received an unbelievable amount of negative press and comments over the years - which is enough to drive anyone mad.
The couple have now moved to LA with their son, Archie.
via: ShutterstockMaking it across the border mere hours before it closed, Meghan and Harry are reportedly riding out the coronavirus pandemic in a secluded compound in Malibu.
And, thanks to the move, things have changed for the better.
via: Getty Images"Meghan’s thrilled to have escaped the chaos of London. She feels like a new person," a source close to the pair said. "On top of not being hounded by the British press 24/7, Meghan reportedly likes that she doesn’t have to worry about following outdated royal protocol anymore."
She can now live a normal life.
via: Getty Images“Meghan can go out in yoga pants and not be criticized for not following a dress code. She feels more relaxed and loves walking around fresh-faced with barely any makeup on."
However, this doesn't mean things have been the same for Harry.
via: GettyVarious reports have been claiming that the prince is struggling to adjust to life in LA, and is missing his home country and his family.
A source has claimed that Meghan is worried about her husband...
via: Getty"This could be the toughest test that Harry and Meghan have gone through since they got married," an insider told New! Magazine, "Harry is feeling homesick and that’s taken Meghan by surprise as he thought the move was the right decision at the start of all this."
The prince apparently misses "old elements of his life"...
via: GettySuch as "the routine, his old friends and, of course, the daily contact with his family."
This kind of family separation is bound to be difficult for anyone...
via: GettySo it doesn't come as a big surprise for most of us to hear that the prince had been operating secret social media accounts.
A new book about the royal couple has claimed that Harry has operated these secret accounts for years now...
via: GettyAnd, today, the name of one of these accounts has been revealed.
Finding Freedom, written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, detail Meghan's cryptic Instagram post the night she and Harry had their first date in London...
via: GettyAnd they also report that around that same time she began following an account called @SpikeyMau5.
Could this be Harry's secret social media user name?While there was no profile picture, those in the know claim that the account was named after DJ DeadMau5, while "Spikey" was a code name often used to refer to the prince by Scotland Yard officers.
The account followed only a handful of people...
via: GettyBut, according to the book's authors, it is definitely his account. "With no face visible in the profile photo, just a mouse-shaped helmet, it would have meant nothing to most people. But it was in fact Harry's private account."
Harry, is that you?
via: GettyWe may never know. But, for something a little more official, keep scrolling to hear what the prince had to say about his late mother, Princess Diana on her birthday in a surprise speech...
