We interrupt your daily Instagram selfie or #ThrowbackThursday post to bring you the latest batch of royal wedding news, this time as it pertains to social media. Unless you live under a rock with no wifi, or have somehow maintained the willpower to avoid hopping on the Instagram bandwagon, your news feed has probably seen its fair share of royal-related content the past few months. If you know who to follow, you most likely caught glimpses of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's engagement announcement, photos from their engagement shoot, the first public shots of newborn Prince Louis, and much more. But, don't fret if you've been out of the royal Instagram loop—we rounded up the best social media accounts to follow in honor of Prince Harry and Markle's wedding.

1. Kensington Royal

Naturally, the account dedicated exclusively to Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Prince Harry should be the first on your follow list. In case you missed it, the Kensington Royal Instagram shared exclusive snippets from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's engagement photo shoot, much to the satisfaction of fellow royal wedding fans. Make sure you're always in the know by keeping tabs on this social media resource, which totes 3.8 million followers, especially on May 19.

2. The Royal Family

Additionally, this account has highlighted the entire royal family, including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, throughout their frequent official visits and events. Plus, the blue verified check mark denotes this Instagram page as the official account of the royal family. With everything from throwback photos of the Queen on her birthday to scenic shots of Buckingham Palace, The Royal Family's Instagram push notifications need to be enabled leading up to the wedding.

3. Ralph & Russo

Considering Ralph & Russo is rumored to be the brand behind Meghan Markle's buzzworthy wedding dress, this London-based fashion house's Instagram should also be on your radar in preparation for the royal wedding. While it still hasn't officially been confirmed whether this designer is The One, scroll through the page to gain some potential Markle wedding dress inspo and scope out Ralph & Russo's A-list clientele.

4. Roland Mouret

Get a further sense of Markle's killer signature style by Instagram stalking this designer, whose name has also been tossed around as her potential dress designer. Markle and Mouret have been fast friends after they crossed paths in Instanbul, and he bluntly confessed that he would love to dress her. Only time will tell whether he'll have the honor of dressing Markle on one of the biggest days of her life but, in the meantime, we can still browse Mouret's official Instagram page to satisfy our gown fantasies.

5. Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra, who has proven her close bond with Markle time and again, finally officially revealed that she'll be in attendance at Prince Harry and Markle's wedding, and we're hoping that she'll at least post a wedding day selfie for us commoners to fawn over on May 19. It wouldn't be the first time these two glamorous besties posed for a pic together. However, guests unfortunately are forbidden from taking photos during the evening wedding reception.

6. Jessica Mulroney

Another one of Markle's close friends, Jessica Mulroney, reportedly flew in to London in January to help the soon-to-be-bride design her wedding dress, and even gets the honor of helping Markle map out some of the big day's components. With a royal wedding on her resume, fingers crossed that Mulroney will show off some of her work via Instagram after the wedding.

7. Gary Janetti

What would a royal wedding be without a little bit of satire!? For those looking for a daily dose of humor, turn to Gary Janetti's Instagram page, which creates hilarious (and semi raunchy) memes from a pretentious Prince George perspective. While Meghan Markle (and her attire) seems to be the victim of most posts, it's all in good fun and completely worth the follow. And, we have to admit, as the wedding draws nearer, Janetti's posts have actually grown even more laughable.

As we all continue to embark on the journey of uncovering the perfect Instagram filter and hashtags, may we seek social media solidarity for the time being by voluntarily turning our news feeds into royal wedding mania. With almost a week until the big day, your morning scroll through Instagram could use a little more Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, if we do say so ourselves.
