KEY POINTS

  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should have not commented on the Queen's decision
  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle accused of disrespecting Queen Elizabeth II

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were praised for “humility” before their spiteful statement against Queen Elizabeth II.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are in hot water after releasing a statement about the Spring 2020 transition on their official website. In their post, many felt that the two were playing victim by referencing how minor royals were allowed to seek employment outside of the institution while they were being put on a 12-month probation. 

Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams said that Prince Harry should have shown more “humility” toward the Queen’s decision. But prior to the controversy, the couple was actually praised for being humble.

Nicholas Drummond, Defense Industry consultant and commentator, found the duke humble for not wearing a general’s uniform when he married Markle. Prince Harry was the Captain General of the Marines and could have worn one, but he opted to sport his original regiment, the Household Cavalry, and the rank of Major.

“Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's love continues to inspire.Their work ethic, their humility, their kindness are a gift to humanity.They are two people in love we should all understand the basics about love.I am happy to take my precious time to support them, they are precious,” @ManziAnnie wrote on Twitter.

“Prince Harry may not be king of our country but he’s the true king of the world! just like his mum. A true prince of peoples heart! Such a great soul and loving man with such humility! We adore him and the world adore him too!” @flotus1982 added.

"Prince Harry is such a legend and a massive inspiration with his humility and genuine enthusiasm for goodness. #InvictusGames,” @TheWiles wrote.

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were accused of disrespecting the Queen for their recent statement. Markle was called a “narcissist” and Prince Harry was also slammed for turning his back from the royal family who has been very supportive of him.

Some users believe that Prince Harry and Markle should have not commented on the Queen’s decision. According to one netizen, the Sussexes should have just accepted the Queen’s decision with “good grace.”
