The Cambridges and the Sussexes were particularly active on Instagram today, both sharing two posts in quick succession of each other.
Just five hours later
And, amid reports Prince William is concerned Harry’s visit to the UK will overshadow his upcoming tour of Ireland, both brothers shared a post about their respective endevours at the same time this evening.
Both accounts boast 11.2 million followers, with Sussex Royal slightly in the lead of Kensington Palace’s account.
This morning Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, seen in London last month, shared a post promoting his visit to Scotland, which aimed to look at how local tourism can protect the environment and support local communities
Just five hours later the Prince William, 37, and Kate Middleton, 38, seen last night, posted a picture of the Duchess of Cambridge at a sporting event in aid of SportsAid, with both posts racking up around 200,000 likes
This evening’s post on Harry’s account shows the Duke of Sussex promoting his talk at the Scottish summit on how to maintain a sustainable tourism industry, racking up 60,000 likes.
Meanwhile, at 30,000 likes, Prince William shared a picture promoting his visit to a homelessness project in Nottinghamshire.
The two clashing posts came as a source told
‘He recognises that for the media this will be “the big story.”‘
Harry kicked off the day with a post about his summit in Scotland, amid rumours William was concerned he could be overshadowed by his brother’s visit
Just a few hours later Kate shared a picture of her visit to a sports charity, with both posts racking up around 200,000 likes
The source went on to say that while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will not be ‘jealous’ of the coverage, the tour of Ireland is particularly important as it’s the first carried out by any member of The Firm since Brexit.
The engagements will not be taking place at the same time, but the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s much-anticipated return to the UK is likely to overshadow the final day of William and Kate’s tour.
During his return to the UK, Prince Harry will visit the Abbey Road Studios in London on Friday to record a new song for his Invictus Games with rock star Jon Bon Jovi.
He will then be joined by his wife Meghan – and, possibly, the couple’s son Archie – early next week for five further official appearances.
These include the official opening of the Silverstone UK Experience, Mountbatten Music Festival and an occasion to mark Independent Women’s Day.
Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton were at the theatre in London last night and will be on a royal tour in Ireland from March 3 to 5.
However, the ‘Fab Four’ – as William, Kate, Harry and Meghan were once known – are expected to join together with other royals at the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on March 9.
