Followers of the royal family couldn’t help but notice Prince Charles’ recent social media post wishing grandson Archie a happy birthday didn’t include a photo of mom, Meghan Markle.
“Happy birthday to Archie, who turns two today,” he captioned a photo of himself with son Harry and grandson Archie. Followers immediately made note of Markle’s absence, as she was included in other dedications to the toddler posted by other family members.
“Sad! Very sad state of affairs when the supposed future king cuts the mother of his grandchild out of the photo with which he chooses to share,” wrote one critic. “Yes, they haven’t seen Archie for over 12mnths, but to not include Meghan… it’ll only add fuel to the fire of the tabloids. #Archie.”
“Lovely picture, but where is Meghan on the picture?” another added.
“Why would you not call him your grandson and why cut his mother off?” wrote yet another disappointed Tweeter. “You have made a lot of mistakes yourself or have you forgotten that. This is not helping at all.”
Other royals were sure to include pictures of Archie with his mother within their birthday wishes, including Prince William and the Queen herself.
“Wishing Archie Mountbatten-Windsor a very happy 2nd birthday today,” said a message posted on Queen Elizabeth II’s official “Royal Family” Twitter account, along with an emoji of a red balloon.
Prince Charles — who’s only seen grandson Archie twice since his birth — is reportedly “still fuming” over Meghan and Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, with a source telling Us Weekly, “Charles is still fuming about Harry throwing shade at him and the royal family in the big interview and won’t let it drop.”
