On Wednesday, Duchess Meghan celebrated her son’s first birthday by sharing a video of him. Most people thought the clip was quite cute except one particular author.

On May 6, 2020, Duchess Meghan, 38, took part in a story-reading exercise with the Save With Stories organization. She held little Archie, who was celebrating his first birthday, in her lap as they read the “Duck! Rabbit!” story together.

Author Emily Giffin, 48, has since come out to criticize the duchess for how she handled the reading. Prince Harry played the videographer and could be heard commenting in the background.

MEGHAN IS “SUCH A PHONY”

The “Something Borrowed” writer took to her Instagram Stories and slammed Meghan. Giffin started off by posting screenshots of Kensington Palace’s tribute to the little toddler on her now-private account.

Go away Meghan

She speculated how the Royal Family had a “pointed photo choice” to use a portrait featuring several members instead of one with just the Sussexes. In a text exchange with someone else, Giffin went as far as referring to Meghan as “unmaternal” and “such a phony” for her recording.

THE MEGHAN SHOW

The “All We Ever Wanted” writer commented: “Adorable child and book. But… Holy ‘me first.’ This is the Megan [sic] show.” Giffin questioned why Harry hadn’t read the book instead or why she hadn’t acknowledged him in the clip.

The writer judged the duchess for wanting privacy for Archie but posting a video of him “wearing no pants?! Ooookay.” Giffin’s dislike of Meghan has been an ongoing issue.

EMILY BEFORE HER HATE FOR MEGHAN

“They’ll be in the history books. Hundreds of years from now, Harry and Meghan will be a footnote.”
