Meghan Markle Slammed For 'Disgraceful' Birthday Message To Prince George | 22 Words

In light of Prince George's birthday, Meghan Markle has once again found herself in the firing line for the birthday message she and Harry issued to the young prince...

Prince George turned 7 today.

And of course, birthday messages have been flooding in for the young prince.

In fact, mom, Kate Middleton, shared some adorable photographs on the Kensington Royal Instagram...

The couple released 2 photographs to mark the occasion.

But, as news of the birthday reached social media...

Many fans pointed out how unhappy they were with Meghan Markle and her birthday message.

Now, in the last couple of years, Meghan Markle has adorned more headlines than she'd care to count.

The California-born Suits actress has had a rollercoaster of a transition into the British Royal Family, and she's had to make an awful lot of changes to her life along the way.

And this week is clearly no exception...

Meghan really can't seem to catch a break.

Everything changed for Meghan back in 2016.

The world descended into a frenzy when it was announced that the actress had started dating Prince Harry.

They married shortly afterward in May 2018...

Ultimately making Meghan an official part of the Royal Family. She relocated to London and was given the title, the Duchess of Sussex.

The couple announced their pregnancy shortly after the wedding...

And Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born in May of 2019.

Even though the little family seemed to radiate with happiness...

Things were far from the case behind the scenes as Meghan was relentlessly attacked by the British press and public.

Anything she did or said...

The British tabloids had something to say about it. Whether she was being branded as a diva, a control-freak, a "monarchy ruiner," and even a bad mother, Meghan received it all.

It seemed that Meghan literally couldn't do anything right...

And it didn't take long for people to realize that this hate was a matter of racism.

Meghan is the first-ever person of color to join the Royal Family...

And no other royal has ever received the volume of hate in which Meghan has - not even Prince Andrew, who was recently accused of being involved in the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking scandal.

Meghan's life was made a living hell for absolutely no reason...

And this sadly goes to show that racism isn't just a problem here in America, but it is apparent worldwide.

Even though Meghan bravely put a smile on her face throughout it all...

There was absolutely no doubt that she was struggling.

So for many, it came as no surprise when Meghan and Harry made the bold decision to step down from royal duties earlier this year.

In a joint statement, the couple said that they wanted "a normal upbringing for their child" and they feel that spending their time between the U.K. and America would be much more appropriate for their family environment.

The statement read:

"We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honor our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages."

And they vowed to continue with their charitable efforts, despite the step down in role.

"This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity."

Obviously, this decision ruffled a lot of feathers...

And, of course, a large percentage of the public and press alike put most of the blame on Meghan, with some even branding her as a "snake" and a "traitor."

But their decision was final.

As promised, Meghan and Harry started their new life by moving to LA, where they have remained with their son throughout the duration of the coronavirus pandemic.

Given the fact that they now have no public platform...

They have been unable to wish Prince George a happy birthday today.

But that hasn't stopped fans unearthing a previous birthday message...

And they aren't happy with Meghan.

Last year, they used their social media account to acknowledge Prince George's birthday.

Meghan and Harry commented on a photograph of their nephew at the time to mark the special occasion.

Under one of the photographs posted by @kensingtonroyal, they wrote:

“Happy Birthday! “Wishing you a very special day and lots of love!" The message was finished with a cake and red balloon emoji.

But the seemingly harmless message divided opinion among royal fans.

Some of whom complained that Meghan was ignoring George’s official title of prince.

Some branded the message as "cold."

Yikes.

However, many raised this point.

Some also explained that the criticism was only targeted towards Meghan, despite both Meghan and Harry holding responsibility for the message. "How can people just single out Meghan when the birthday message came from Meghan AND Harry’s Instagram account, this was the perfect excuse for the haters to use to single out Meghan YET AGAIN and bully her even more!" wrote one user.

In fact, several fans rushed to Meghan's defense.

It all seemed like a lot of fuss over a birthday message. For more on Meghan, scroll on to read about her political plans...
