As 2019 comes to a close, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have opted to spend the year outside of the public eye. At this time, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently on a six-week break from all royal duties. However, they have also made a decision regarding their social media that caught the attention of royal fans.

According to the Daily Mail, the royals have the tagged photos feature on their Sussex Royal page disabled. This is in contrast to Prince William and Kate Middleton who allow fans to tag them in various images.

Per the publication, Meghan and Harry did not set up the feature when they created the account, which has led to speculation behind the decision. Some have wondered if they choose to "prevent" any tagging in an attempt to avoid their official Christmas card from being leaked, which recently happened to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Additionally, others hold a belief that the royals do not allow unexpected pictures of themselves to be seen on the page in an attempt to protect their privacy. Many royal fans know that they are very private. This has, in turn, reportedly sparked criticism from Prince William in the past in terms of the ways in which Meghan and Harry parent Archie Harrison. The concern around Archie's privacy was also highlighted earlier this year when he was christened.

The decision to lead a more private life has also come out in other ways over the course of the year. Earlier reports stated that not only have the royals intentionally kept secrets to keep themselves "shrouded in mystery," but they have also been quietly keeping the public at a "distance" in other ways.
