A user on “X,” formerly known as Twitter, wrote,

“Meghan Markle, Prince Harry are really desperate and they are proving that without the Royal titles and connection they have and can do nothing.”

On the other hand, another user on “X” defended Meghan Markle and Prince Harry,

“I am getting of bored of many hate is always and forever complain too much Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s having titles.”

Here are mixed reactions from other users on “X.”

Following the backlash, Meghan Markle responded by praising the website’s designers,

“There is a reason I have worked with Ryan and the talented team at Article for a decade: their attention to detail, their creativity and care, and the thoughtful approach to design as well as to the user experience.”

She added,

“They’re not just designers; they are collaborators who elevate your ideas into visual identities. They’re a very special company. Plus, they’re Canadian, so I’m a fan.”

Shortly after the couple’s May 2018 wedding, the palace revealed Markle’s new coat of arms design featured on their new website. Markle reportedly worked closely with the College of Arms to create the design, which included several personal elements.

In 2020, Prince Harry and Markle stepped down as senior royals. Prince Harry said at the time that they were infuriated with the “toxic” press environment and frustrated that Buckingham Palace stopped them developing their “SussexRoyal” brand.

However, according to multiple reports, the couple kept their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles but are no longer addressed as His or Her Royal Highness (HRH). Prince Harry also gave up his military titles.
