The Cambridges and the Sussexes were particularly active on Instagram today, both sharing two posts in quick succession of each other.

Just five hours later Prince William, 37, and Kate Middleton, 38, posted a picture of the Duchess of Cambridge at a sporting event in aid of SportsAid, with both posts racking up around 200,000 likes.

And, amid reports Prince William is concerned Harry’s visit to the UK will overshadow his upcoming tour of Ireland, both brothers shared a post about their respective endevours at the same time this evening. 

Both accounts boast 11.2 million followers, with Sussex Royal slightly in the lead of Kensington Palace’s account.

This evening’s post on Harry’s account shows the Duke of Sussex promoting his talk at the Scottish summit on how to maintain a sustainable tourism industry, racking up 60,000 likes.

Meanwhile, at 30,000 likes, Prince William shared a picture promoting his visit to a homelessness project in Nottinghamshire. 

The two clashing posts came as a source told the Sun: ‘Indeed he [Prince William] is glad that he is returning, however briefly – he wishes that it wasn’t at the same time as his Irish trip because he knows what will happen is that the spotlight as far as papers and TV are concerned will be fully on Harry and Meghan.’ 

‘He recognises that for the media this will be “the big story.”‘

Harry kicked off the day with a post about his summit in Scotland, amid rumours William was concerned he could be overshadowed by his brother's visit
