Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Are Slammed For Writing What Critics Call A Disrespectful Message For Prince George's Birthday
Prince George recently marked his sixth birthday, and the moment was widely celebrated across the UK.
As expected, various members of the royal family chimed in with their own words of congratulations, and the whole event was a huge sensation on social media.
However, after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shared their own congratulations, their comment drew heavy criticism from various people.
Apparently, the main cause for all the controversy was the fact that the message congratulating the young boy for his birthday did not make any reference to his actual name.
The couple wrote this to Kate Middleton and Prince William's son: "Happy Birthday 🎂🎈! Wishing you a very special day and lots of love!"
According to some, this was a show of disrespect for the future King of the nation. And while some initially assumed that this would blow over quickly, it did not seem to.
On the contrary, the controversy went on for quite a while, with many people jumping in the comment section to express their disappointment.
Others were critical of those comments themselves, claiming that people were blowing a small situation way out of proportion and that everyone should calm down.
A person bashed Harry and Meghan by saying: "It is HRH.FUTURE King. he's someone you will bow and curtsy to in future."
Another commenter replied: "It is so funny that everyone thinks that it was Meghan wrote the post. Would there be all this negativity if Harry wrote it after all it is there page? Do you think when there together they talk to each other using their titles."
This person added: "It's unfortunate that so-called royal fans who don't have much going on in their own lives have now taken it upon themselves to post vile and disrespectful comments on social media pages to make themselves feel important and relevant. It is sad that the simple act of wishing children of the British Royal Family a Happy Birthday has now deteriorated into the posting of vile and disrespectful comments. People need to get a grip on themselves and find something productive to do with their time.🙏🏽"
This Instagram user shared: "I’m anti-royal. Ppl will visit England for past culture. They don’t need to pay royals $500million. But..it’s getting ridiculous to bash someone who’s sending “well wishes.”
It does not look like the royal family itself is affected negatively by the whole ordeal in any way, so there is at least that.
In the meantime, Meghan and Prince have not provided any further comments on the situation.
This is not the first time they have been the subject of heavy criticism for their actions though. All in all, it looks like many people have it out for the couple for some reason, although it is not clear why exactly.
What are your thoughts on this odd scandal?
