The day we all knew was coming is finally here.

Yes, Meghan Markle-obsessed ladies and gentlemen, the 36-year-old has finally bid 'farewell' to her Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts and, let's face it, the world will never be the same.

Yesterday, Kensington Palace confirmed the Suits star had shut down her social media accounts.

The palace explained that Markle was 'grateful to everyone who has followed her social media accounts over the years' but has closed them 'as she has not used these accounts for some time'.

The decision to delete her social media accounts - which had accrued approximately 2.2 Instagram followers and over 475,000 Twitter followers - came the same day she visited a Brixton community radio station with her fiancé Prince Harry.

The closure of the accounts comes almost one year after the Californian actress closed down her lifestyle blog, The Tig.

In her final post to the website, which documented her travels, interviews with high-profile celebrities and favourite recipes, the bride-to-be explained she has finally made the decision to shut down the blog after three years of adventures.

'What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity,' she wrote.

'You've made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much joy,' she told her fans.

Likewise, Markle's Instagram and Facebook accounts featured hundreds of personal images of the star on holiday in Italy, hanging out with her best friends Priyanka Chopra and Serena Williams, chilling with her dogs Bogart and Guy on the sofa, and on set of her hit legal drama, Suits.

It was to be expected the brunette star would close down her social media accounts, in keeping with royal custom.

While it has been rumoured that Prince Harry once used a Facebook account under the pseudonym Spike Wells, it is widely known that senior members of the monarchy - such as Prince William, Kate Middleton and Harry - have official Twitter and Instagram accounts, run by the social media teams of their households.

Kensington Palace, for example, regularly posts exclusive pictures and behind-the-scenes snaps of the younger members of the royal family on public royal engagements on behalf of the monarchy.

Following her wedding on 19 May, Markle will also come under Kensington Palace with social media postings made on her behalf by its communications staff.

Au revoir, social media Meghan.
