Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Slammed By Royal Fans Over Prince Louis Instagram Comments
Prince Louis - who is fifth in line to the British throne - celebrated his first birthday this week, and to mark the occasion, Prince William and Kate Middleton posted a series of pictures on Instagram. The photos of the young royal were absolutely adorable, but the comment posted by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made some royal fans angry.
“Happy Birthday Louis! Sending lots of love from both of us xo,” was the comment left by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s joint Instagram account, and fans immediately called them out for not using Prince Louis’ proper title.
One follower wrote that it’s fine if Harry and Meghan don’t believe in titles. But, if that’s the case, then they shouldn’t expect people to use theirs. A second one added, “@sussexroyal It's Prince Louis to you; he outranks you both.”
It didn’t take long for the comments section to fill up with slams against Harry and Meghan, another fan pointed out, “He is a prince… and also 5th in line so should be addressed by his title as a show of respect ...not just [email protected]”
Others accused the Duke and Duchess of taking attention away from the young prince and suggested they post on their own page.
There were some fans who defended the comment, telling others they should get over it because Harry and Meghan are related to little Louis.
According to The Express, the “xo” at the end of the Duke and Duchess’ comment has renewed the speculation that Meghan is personally writing messages on the @sussexroyal account because the former Suits actress often added that to her posts on her old social media accounts.
As fans know, Harry and Meghan will welcome their first child any day now, and the couple has opted to keep their baby planning details private. They will not be posing for pics outside of the famous Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital like William and Kate and have instead decided to celebrate privately with friends and family before announcing their child’s birth to the world.
Some believe Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will announce their baby’s birth on their Instagram account, and share the first images of the half-British, half-American royal baby themselves. When baby Sussex arrives, he or she will be seventh in line to the British throne.
