Jennifer Aniston Breaks Instagram Record Held By Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

October 17, 2019

Jennifer Aniston became Insta-famous.

Fans went crazy when the 50-year-old actress joined Instagram on Tuesday and kicked off her new account with a selfie featuring the entire main cast of “Friends.”

Even though the “Morning Show” star must have known the full cast shot was going to be a like magnet, she probably didn’t anticipate setting a new record for fastest 1 million followers on Instagram.

Aniston reached the milestone in five hours and 16 minutes, according to People.

It was a feat of royal proportions, as Aniston dethroned the previous record holders, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Watch the throne!

The royal couple broke the title when they launched their Instagram in April and got to one mil in five hours and 45 minutes.

Aniston’s Insta went so gangbusters, her account temporarily crashed, reading, “Sorry, this page isn’t available.”

Aniston captioned her first post featuring the “Friends” gang with, “And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM.”

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight she said that she was hesitant about making an Instagram account but felt pressured.

"It’s something that is a part of our world now and it’s not going away,” she said. “You can actually have a little bit more control over the narrative that’s out there.”
