Meghan Markle has not been active on social media, so she decided to delete her accounts.

Fans were surprised when the "Suits" actress suddenly deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts this week. Those who want to get updates about Markle will now have to follow the Kensington Palace Twitter page.

On Tuesday, the palace confirmed that Markle permanently took down her accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. According to Kensington Palace (via CBS News), Prince Harry's fiancée "is grateful to everyone who has followed her social media accounts over the years." However, Markle decided to delete them because "she has not used these accounts for some time."

Prior to the removal of her pages, Markle's followers noticed that the actress has not shared anything on her social media accounts for months. In fact, her last post on Instagram was back in March 2017. It seemed that when her high-profile romance with Prince Harry became more serious, she also withdrew from using her Twitter and Instagram.

It is expected that Markle will have even less presence on social media after tying the knot with Prince Harry. This is among the things that she will have to stop doing after the royal wedding. In fact, her decision to delete her social media accounts may not be surprising to some.

In April, Markle also shut down her lifestyle blog, The Tig. On the website, Markle had opened her heart and personal matters to her followers. In fact, in one entry she shared the New Year's resolution that has always been part of her list for years.

"Stop biting my nails. Stop swearing. These make my New Year's resolution list nearly (AKA actually every) single year," Markle wrote on her blog.

According to her, being overworked or "might cheeky" after a couple of drinks trigger her swearing. Meanwhile, her nail-biting happens during a turbulent flight or stressful day. Prince Harry's soon-to-be bride knew that both are "unladylike" behavior.

When Markle decided to shut down The Tig, the actress left her followers with some words of wisdom. She encouraged them to "keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being 'the change you wish to see in the world.' Above all, don't ever forget your worth - as I've told you time and time again: you, my sweet friend, you are enough."
