Meghan Markle Haters Troll Comment by Sussex Royal Wishing Prince George on His 6th Birthday

The Sussexes’ comment wishing their nephew a happy birthday has caused uproar as internet users consider the message and manner disrespectful.

The past few days have been regarded as joyous for members of the royal family as Prince William and Kate Middleton’s first child, Prince George marked his 6th birthday.

"Happy Birthday! Wishing you a very special day and lots of love!"

George, who is the third in line to the British throne, had a lot of tributes pour in from family, and fans alike.

The Cambridges through their official Instagram page, @Kensingtonroyal, celebrated the future monarch and were welcomed with kind words from well-wishers.

Among the kind wishes was a comment from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’ Instagram page wishing the young one a happy birthday. It read: "Happy Birthday! Wishing you a very special day and lots of love!" alongside a balloon and cake emoji

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended #TheLionKing European premiere in London at the Odeon Theatre. In celebration of the film’s release, The Walt Disney Company announced #ProtectThePride, a global conservation campaign to support efforts protecting the rapidly diminishing lion population across Africa. As a part of their commitment to this cause, Disney also made a donation to The Duke of Sussex’s upcoming environment & community initiative which will be formally announced this autumn. The Duke and Duchess are committed to advancing conservation efforts across Africa and around the world, and working with communities to ensure a sustainable future for the planet. This evening Their Royal Highnesses had the pleasure of meeting the cast and creative team behind the film, as well as supporters of @africanparksnetwork, of which The Duke is President.

While the comment may have come as entirely innocent, Meghan’s haters aren’t ignoring an opportunity to show their displeasure against her.

The original post by the Kensington palace featured new photos showing the Prince. It was followed by a caption which stated:

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share new photographs of Prince George to mark His Royal Highness’s sixth birthday.”

The latter part of the caption revealed that the images were taken by Kate Middleton, and subsequently thanked admirers for their good wishes.

Surprisingly, several internet users were angered by the fact that the Sussexes didn't think it right to pay tribute to George's title.

Apparently, they felt the comment came from the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle herself, and was disrespectful to the little prince by ignoring his royal title while addressing him.

A commenter wrote:

‘He is the future KING. Treat him with respect; he is HRH!!!”

Another wrote:

“When she wants to use her title than she has to do the same with others. He is not just your nephew; he is her next king! She is really dying that her Archie will never have a title.”

Although there were some pro comments for Meghan concerning the possibly completely innocent posts, most of them were against her.

Tonight, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the first of a two game series of the Major League Baseball #LondonSeries, in support of @WeAreInvictusGames. Tonight’s highly anticipated game between the #Yankees and #RedSox took place at London stadium, Olympic Park. The @WeAreInvictusGames, of which His Royal Highness is Founding Patron, has been selected as charity partner for the @MLB 2019 series. The Invictus Games Foundation is the international charity that oversees the development of the Invictus Games, an international adaptive multi-sport event in which wounded, injured or sick armed service personnel and veterans participate. It celebrates the power of sport in recovery and how it can help, physically or psychologically, those suffering from injuries or illness. The word ‘invictus’ means ‘unconquered’ - it embodies the fighting spirit of the competitors. As part of the partnership, the Invictus Games Foundation have a team participating in London’s #Softball60, the social softball series built for the city and targeted to introduce the sport to new audiences and demonstrate that it is an inclusive sport. On this #ArmedForcesDay, tonight’s event was also a chance for Their Royal Highnesses to shine a light on the men and women here in the UK and around the world who have sacrificed so much for their country.

Last month, the Duke of Cambridge celebrated his 37th birthday on June 31, and as usual, Meghan and Prince Harry wished him well with a comment from their Instagram page.

The Sussexes took to the comment section and simply wrote: "Happy Birthday to The Duke of Cambridge!"

Although they were not accused of being disrespectful by internet users, commenters complained that the message was too formal.

Just like physical health we all have mental health. Every one of us will face setbacks in our lives. And every one of us will face challenges with our mental health as a result. The consequences of this silence – confusion, stigma, and even shame – have reached a crisis point in the UK. At its worst, it has led to appalling rates of suicide in this country – the leading cause of death for men under 45. As President of the FA, I saw an opportunity to bring the sport I love – that many men talk about more than anything else in their lives – to help lead the next phase of the conversation. Over the last two years, we’ve been working behind the scenes to decide the best way to harness the power of football to really change the way men think about mental health. Heads Up will show men that we all have mental health just like we have physical health. Heads Up, a collaboration between the FA (@England) and @Heads_Together will harness the influence and popularity of football to help show the world that mental fitness is just as important as physical fitness, and will build on the decades of work to tackle the stigma and drive the conversation on mental health. Swipe to watch the Heads Up launch film, and visit the link in our bio to find out more.

While the Instagram pages are highly representative of the royal family, they may not be the one handling them.
