Whatever’s on my mind really.

A peek at illustration inspiring celebrity sexiness, quirky news stories from inherently pornified pop culture, tips, sketchbook and work in progress, reviews and other things of interest; whatever’s on my mind really—which more fool you if you ever take that seriously.

Prince Harry wants Fortnite to be banned (

Fortnite. “Shouldn’t be allowed, by Royal Decree”
Prince Harry and Meghan official Instagram sussexroyal account

Saying at a roundtable discussion on children’s mental health at the YMCA in south Ealing, London that video games such as Epic’s massively popular Fortnite Battle Royale “shouldn’t be allowed” due to their addictive nature:

“Where is the benefit in having that game in your household?” he added. ”It’s created to addict—an addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It’s so irresponsible.”

In addition to social media being virtual crack too:

“Social media is more addictive than drugs and alcohol, yet it’s more dangerous because it’s normalised and there are no restrictions to it,” he said.

“Normalised” enough that he and Megs had launched their own Brand Sussex official Instagram account two days ago, presumably having benefit in keeping many glued to their phone if not in front of computer or console for as long as possible.

Harry and Meghan launch their own Instagram account as Brand Sussex is born (

The Duke and Duchess, who are creating a new team of aides based at Buckingham Palace, have formally separated from the Cambridges on social media, promising to publish their “important announcements” directly to fans.

With a new account called SussexRoyal created in time for the birth of Baby Sussex at the end of this month, the picture-driven format of Instagram ideal for royal watchers to be glued to see the first pictures and braking a world record for reaching one million followers in the fastest ever time. But, was it really a new “SussexRoyal” account? It seems there was already a SussexRoyal:

Prince Harry and Meghan took my Instagram name (

Kevin Keiley had used @sussexroyal for around three years because he supports Reading FC—nicknamed the Royals—and he lives in West Sussex.

But found out via his son that Instagram had changed his handle and given his name to the royal couple without asking him.

“I got a jokey text from my son which said ‘Ha ha, I see your handle has gone then’,” the 55-year-old tells Radio 1 Newsbeat.

“I thought ‘What's that all about?’ He said ‘Look on Instagram’ so I looked on Instagram and suddenly my handle wasn’t @sussexroyal anymore it was @_sussexroyal_”.

With no prior notice given by Instagram but who now claim says his handle was conveniently changed in accordance with policy because the account was inactive.

Kevin admits that he didn’t have that many followers and didn’t post often—but he would use it to like and follow other people’s posts.

And indeed still has control of a Twitter account with the same handle—at least for the time being.

“I can tell you that Twitter’s gone mental. I used to have four followers and in 24 hours I’ve gone up to about 198,” he says.

“What I’m trying to do is keep tweeting therefore they can’t take it if it’s active. I don’t know what the royals are planning down the line.”

Well, I wouldn’t hold out hope on Twitter’s fecal bearded hipster CEO Jack Dorsey not renaming it too in the interest of more newsworthy tweets (Latest Picks Oct. 2017). And as of yet he’s not been too keen to get slide into his new underscored identity on Instagram:

Kevin says he will probably go back on to Instagram one day but adds: “I don't think I'll be following the royals.”
