Pictures and podcasts: royal fans old and new await baby Sussex
NO REPORTER NARRATION.
From Boston to Karachi, Britain's royal family draws fans around the world, eagerly following special occasions, their outings, their outfits, and their new arrivals.
They collect memorabilia, travel to see the royals in public or follow their news from afar.
In an age of social media, new types of fans have created Facebook pages, Instagram accounts and broadcast podcasts to global audiences.
When Harry and Meghan, who are expecting their first child, launched their @sussexroyal Instagram handle on April 2, the account broke the record for the fastest time to get one million followers on the platform, hitting the number in five hours and 45 minutes, according to Guinness World Records.
"The reason behind posting is... I love her a lot," said Karachi-based Mah Jabeen, 36, who set up a Facebook "Meghan Markle Club" page and YouTube channel about the now duchess.
