Prince Harry's birthday, which falls on Wednesday this year, has been ruined after he and his wife received some devastating news...

And their fans were left equally devastated too.

This just adds to a long list of tragedies they've suffered ever since they decided to denounce their involvement with their senior royal duties.

And everything else followed suit.

Meghan, as well as her husband Harry, have not been treated with the respect they deserve.

But regardless, they're still one of the most famous couples in the world.

Headlines were made all over the world when the British Royal Family's Prince Harry announced his romance with the Suits actress, Meghan Markle.

It all started with a blind date...

The couple met back in 2016 when they were set up by a mutual friend who thought the 2 would hit it off.

And their friend's hunch was apparently right...

Because the pair 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 Meghan and Harry <em>obsessed</em>.

And people were delighted to hear the news of their engagement later that year.

And, not ones to waste any time...

The couple officially tied the knot in May 2018.

And, 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.

They make for the <em>cutest</em> little family.

But things haven't been as rosy and smooth-sailing as they have been appearing.

Meghan hasn't had the easiest time...

Joining the British royal family was never going to be an easy transition, given that a person has to give up their entire life in order to be a part of the monarchy. But Meghan's experience has been especially difficult.

Many dedicated royalists weren't happy to see an American woman of color in the monarchy...

And many attacked the Duchess, slamming her as "fake," with some going as far as accusing her of breaking up the royal family entirely.

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.

But, the couple seemingly had enough of the harassment and the criticism...

Because 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.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. 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,” the post read.

The couple plan on providing a more "normal" upbringing for Archie...

And announced that they will be splitting their time between the U.K and North America. “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,” they wrote.

This was <em>huge</em> news...

And it was bound to have 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.

Fuel continued to be added to the fire.

Getty

Between being mom-shamed and slammed, Meghan truly can't catch a break.

But since her and Harry's drastic move to Los Angeles...

They seem to be settling much more into normal family life.

It is undeniable how easier their lives have become since stepping down from royal duties...

And it seems that both Meghan and Harry have been keeping themselves very busy alongside raising baby Archie.

But tensions have continued to rise between the royals ever since Meghan and Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah hit the screens earlier this year.

Getty

Of course, you remember the bombshell interview in which both Meghan and Harry hinted that their family had not only been racist towards Archie but had also stripped the former actress of her freedom.

It was a pretty turbulent time, but despite the accusations, it seems as though Harry is working on repairing his relationships.

Getty

But recently, he was hit with some devastating news regarding the Oprah interview.

And with it being so close to his birthday, some fans are fearing that the special day might be ruined now.

Getty

​The interview was nominated for a prestigious Emmy award, in the category of Best Hosted Non-Fiction Series, but it narrowly missed out on the win.

Instead, the honor went to Stanley Tucci's travel and food series Searching For Italy.

The news has severely disappointed fans who believe the groundbreaking interview deserved the win, especially after Meghan Markle was so openly vulnerable about her mental health issues as well as the situation in Buckingham Palace. However, others were less sympathetic...

Comments poured in...

Hopefully, they will be part of more projects in the future that could earn them a prestigious award.

But until then... Congratulations Stanley Tucci.
