The mistake was pointed out by royal blogger, Gert’s Royals. Tweeting, the royal commentator observed: “Sussex Royal deleted their original post and made an almost identical one. They removed the repetitive last line and swapped the photo of the quote as the original photo they had posted did not include the full quote.”
The original photo posted by the Duke and Duchess included a graffiti mural of former South African President Nelson Mandela’s face alongside a quote from his famous autobiography, Walk to Freedom.
However an amended image cropped out the South African anti-apartheid revolutionary’s face in order to show the words in the quote more clearly.
Of the change, a tweet on the Gert’s Royal Twitter account said: “The photo from Sussex Royal original post on The Lunchbox Fund vs. the 2nd posting.
“I assume the change was to include the full quote, not to crop the picture of Nelson Mandela out in particular.
“Harry and Meghan have spoken very highly of him and visited an exhibit on him in 2018.”
The Sussex Royal Instagram post was made as a plea to those wishing to give baby gifts to the couple who are expecting their first child to be born any day now, with heavily pregnant Meghan having now moved into her new Frogmore abode with husband Harry after extensive renovation work was carried out there.
The photo’s amended caption said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so grateful for the well wishes in anticipation of their first born.
“Today we introduce you to one of four charities the couple has asked that you consider supporting in lieu of sending gifts.
“Please meet The Lunchbox Fund provides a nutritious daily school meal to children in South Africa who would otherwise go hungry.
“Since its inception, The Lunchbox Fund has provided over 20 million meals to school children in need.”
Royal fans are obsessed with the new social media account, which broke a record for amassing one million followers faster than any other.
The account currently has 4.2 million followers and that number is expected to grow.
The Sussexes plan to use the account as a way of directly contacting their followers after they formally divided their royal household from Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William after relocating to Frogmore from Kensington Palace.
In their first post, Harry and Meghan said: “Welcome to our official Instagram; we look forward to sharing the work that drives us, the causes we support, important announcements, and the opportunity to shine a light on key issues.
“We thank you for your support, and welcome you to Sussex Royal.”
