The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made history and become the first members of the British Royal Family to publicly celebrate Pride month.

Joining in on the celebration, the couple posted a message to their official Instagram account saying: “For the month of June we ‘proudly’ shine a light on PRIDE.” 

The post continued, “This month we pay tribute to the accounts supporting the LGBTQ+ community — those young and old, their families and friends, accounts that reflect on the past and are hopeful for a deservedly more inclusive future.”

“We stand with you and support you,” concludes the post. “Because it’s very simple: love is love,” the couple concluded.

Along with the supportive message, the Instagram post also included a collage of nine different images, that included a shot of the couple attending a 2017 World AIDS Day event and a photo of Princess Diana, sharing a laugh with an AIDS patient back in 1996.
