Cape Town - Before marrying Prince Harry (34), Meghan Markle (37) had a lifestyle blog as well as Twitter and Instagram accounts – but had to shut them down due to royal protocol prohibiting the use of social media.

Now, about eight months since she’s joined the royal family, it’s emerged the Duchess of Sussex allegedly had a secret Instagram account so she could keep in contact with her friends, but shut it down just before Christmas after seeing headlines and comments about her, The Sun reports.

“There was some really vile stuff written by social media trolls and obviously she also saw the headlines about her,” an insider told the news outlet.

“It really got to her and, in the end, she had to shut down that account just before Christmas, too, to protect her mental health. She felt very isolated and alone.”

Meghan was so rattled by some of comments she feared for her life, the source added, Express reports.

“She doesn’t feel safe enough to go out on her own without protection,” the source said.

“There are certain things she’s extremely paranoid about, such as being physically attacked.”

Meghan and Harry are expecting their first child and she’s expected to give birth at the end of April, Town and Country reports.
