Meghan Markle is opening up about social media and how it can become an "addiction" for many.

The Duchess of Sussex recently made an appearance at the Fortune Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit and addressed the fact that, though she hasn't been on social media since joining the royal family, she will unlikely ever return to it.

"For my own self-preservation, I have not been on social media for a very long time. I'd had a personal account years ago, which I closed down, and then we had one through the institution and our office that was in the UK – separate from us, that wasn't managed by us, that was a whole team.

"I think that comes with a territory for the job that you have. I've made a personal choice to not have any account. So I don't know what's out there and in many ways, that's helpful for me," Meghan said, after recently speaking out about being the "most trolled person" in the world in 2019.
