Far from the days when we had to rely on newspapers for any news on the royals, the age of social media has meant that it’s easier than ever to keep up with our favourite royal families! Royals around the world have taken to Instagram for sharing moments of their daily lives – and that includes Malaysia as well!
That’s right, did you know our very own Istana Negara maintains an Instagram profile?
Since the proclamation of our current King the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah in January, the Istana has been generous is sharing snippets of the new royal family’s life on the web, and it’s already won over many hearts – ours included!
Read on for our favourite royal moments!
1. When the King stopped to look after an accident victim
Most recently, the King’s sincere kind-heartedness moved the nation when he stopped his entire royal motorcade on his way to a pre-cabinet meeting in Putrajaya to help an accident victim. Thankfully, the victim was only lightly injured, but we reckon she’ll never forget this moment of caring from the Yang di-Pertuan Agong! The incident was also documented on Instagram Stories, where you can see the concerned King in action.
