Queen Elizabeth has come under fire for her controversial birthday message to Meghan Markle...
Fans are not happy.
Meghan Markle celebrates her 39th birthday today.But all anyone can talk about is this controversial Tweet from the Queen! This has certainly ruffled some feathers, given the recent events concerning the monarch and Meghan...
Meghan met Harry back in 2016.Because the pair most definitely hit it off and they immediately arranged to see each other again, eventually going on to have 2 more dates in London.
And, in 2017, after a couple of months of privacy...The pair officially went public with their relationship.
Meghan was instantly catapulted into the royal spotlight.Though she was already pretty well known for her role as Rachel Zane in Suits, the California-born actress was thrown into levels of fame that she had never experienced before.
The world quickly became Harry and Meghan obsessed...
And, not ones to waste any time...The couple officially tied the knot in May 2018.
It was the most beautiful of days...And millions of people from all around the world tuned in to see the couple say their "I do's".
Not long after the wedding, the newly appointed Duke and Duchess of Sussex had some more exciting news...They were expecting! On October 15th, 2018, the couple announced their pregnancy.
And, on May 6th, 2019...Archie Mountbatten-Windsor was welcomed into the world.
Harry, Meghan, and baby Archie make for the cutest little family.But things haven't been as rosy and smooth-sailing as they have been appearing.
Meghan hasn't had the easiest time during her transition into the royal family...
Many dedicated royalists weren't happy to see an American woman of colour in the monarchy...
She has also been relentlessly attacked by the press...
To the point where Kensington Palace was forced to issue a statement, pleading for the press and the public alike to take a step back when it comes to their scathing reporting and bombardment of Meghan.
Kensington Palace has issued a statement this morning about the harassment currently being experienced by Meghan Ma… https://t.co/6KgnuDlXOk— The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (@The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge)1478599888.0
But, this year, the couple have seemingly had enough of the harassment and the criticism...Because back in January, they announced that they would be officially stepping down as senior members of the royal family.
They made the announcement on their joint Instagram page, Sussex Royal.
The couple plan on providing a more "normal" upbringing for Archie...
This was huge news...And, obviously, it ruffled a couple of feathers in Buckingham Palace.
But what many people have failed to take into consideration...Is how hard this whole experience must have been for Meghan - a new mother.
Despite receiving hate from some social media users, the majority just want what's best for the couple.
The royals are currently spending their lockdown in Los Angeles...
But that didn't stop the tributes from pouring in...
The proud parents even shared their own birthday video!
The video was insanely cute...And Meghan looked confident and content in her role as a mother as she enthusiastically read a story to Archie.
The little prince seems to be doing well...
The Queen has only met her great-grandson a handful of times...And now that baby Archie is going to spending his time in L.A for the foreseeable future, who knows when the pair will reunite.
Well, according to royal experts, it may be possible that the Queen may never see Archie again. Ever.Her Majesty is set to travel to Scotland next month with Prince Phillip and the rest of the royal gang for a family holiday - but Harry and Meghan aren't going to be attending.
Harry and Meghan were invited of course, but it seems that the invitation was declined.Writing in The Telegraph, royal expert Camilla Tominey explained it was "highly unlikely" they would journey from Los Angeles to Scotland, writing: "Some are beginning to question when – or indeed if – the Queen and Prince Philip will see Archie, their youngest great-grandchild, again."
This isn't the first time the couple have turned down an invitation made by the Queen...
But this week, it's Meghan's birthday that has fans of the royals talking.People are not happy with this birthday message from the Queen.
The official royal Twitter account sent out this message.
And it's safe to say, people were not happy.

People aren't happy about the use of title.
