Princess Eugenie, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, has become the first member of the royal family to launch a personal Instagram account.

In an unprecedented move, the 27-year-old made her debut on the social media platform in celebration of International Women's Day (opens in new tab).

For her first post, the royal shared a short clip from the WE Day charity concert, held at London's SSE Arena, where she gave a candid speech on her childhood diagnosis with Scoliosis.

And in the caption, Princess Eugenie announced that she will continue to use the digital platform to "share the causes, passions and people close to my heart."

The royal then took to her new social media account to give a more personal insight into life with husband-to-be Jack Brooksbank by sharing a never-before-seen candid from the couple's series of engagement portraits.

And she took the opportunity to showcase her playful side with the caption: "Think Jack said something funny!"

In a matter of days, the royal has already garnered over 13,000 followers but is Princess Eugenie's account a breach of royal protocol?

After Kensington Palace announced the news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's engagement, the former Suits actress deleted all of her personal social media accounts (opens in new tab).

In fact, while they were dating, the 36-year-old hinted at a future with the royal after deciding to shut down her blog (opens in new tab), The Tig.

Instead, the soon-to-be newlyweds keep the nation updated with upcoming royal engagements via the official Kensington Palace Instagram and Twitter accounts (opens in new tab). Meanwhile, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles are represented by Clarence House's social media platforms.

But could Princess Eugenie's Instagram debut suggest that cousins Prince Harry and Prince William are soon to set up their own personal accounts? Keep everything crossed!
