Royal drama … again. Prince William and Kate Middleton took to Instagram on Sunday, April 21, to wish Queen Elizabeth II a happy birthday, and fans are extremely upset about the chosen photo. “Wishing a very happy 93rd birthday to Her Majesty The Queen,” the Kensington Royal Instagram account captioned the family picture. So, what’s the problem, you may ask? Well, in the photo you can see the queen, William, Prince Harry, Princess Charlotte, and Prince George … but not Meghan Markle.
The comment section of the photo immediately became spammed by trolls who slammed the duke, 36, and duchess, 37, for snubbing the 37-year-old brunette by leaving her out of the photo. “Why deliberately leave Meghan out????” one wrote. Another chimed in: “Not a good display of brotherly love excluding Prince Harry’s wife Meghan. Sends the wrong message to the world from the king one day to be.” A third added: “Out of all the PICTURES that have been taken with the queen and the whole family you couldn’t find one picture that Meghan was in to post … sorry but this is very RUDE.” Ouch.
Honestly, the trolls really need to calm down for two reasons. First off, Kate and William probably don’t run their own social media account, meaning they were likely not the ones who chose this photo for the occasion. Second, Meghan was not cropped out of the photo — she wasn’t there! The photo was taken at the 2016 Trooping the Colour ceremony, and the Suits alum only attended her first one this past year. Sorry, folks, the feud has been shut down, once again.
The rumor of the royal couple feud has been circulating ever since the Kenginston Palace announced that the red-headed stud and his wife were relocating to Frogmore Cottage in Winsdor. Fans immediately jumped to the conclusion that Meg and Prince Harry, 34, decided to move further away from William and Kate solely because there was a rift between the two ladies. The real motive for their relocation, however, is pretty darn simple. “The reason [Harry and Meghan] are moving from Kensington Palace is the way they’re living at the moment is too small. There’s two bedrooms and a living room and a dining room downstairs. There’s no outside space and it’s just not big enough for a growing family,” a source told Us Weekly at the time.
On a more positive note, the newest member of the royal family should be arriving any day. How exciting! The gorgeous duo has kept things extremely private, but we do know the Meg is due to give birth in Late April or May. Will it be twins, a boy, or a girl? Only time will tell!
