Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Blasted After Baby Archie Publicly Says His First Words | 22 Words

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have finally released the first episode of their podcast, Archewell Audio, but some people aren't happy with it after Archie publicly said his first words...

It's official: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have released the first episode of their podcast.

But, it comes as no surprise that some people aren't happy with it.

But, strangely, it's not because of Meghan or Harry...

But baby Archie...

Now, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex worked tirelessly together to fulfill their royal duties...

Since their highly-publicized wedding in 2018, the couple took part in many royal tours and visits all around the world.

Naturally, the world fell in love with the new duchess.

Her beautiful looks and elegant demeanor captured hearts all around the world, and her work for feminism and women's charities has set an excellent example within the royal family.

Cracks began to show early, however...

Meghan was quickly criticized upon her entrance into the royal family, and not all the complaints were because she "wasn't royal enough." A family feud with her father, Thomas Markle, was quickly made very public and, when he didn't attend the wedding, the heat was turned onto Meghan.

Meghan has also been branded a "diva" by numerous sources since she became royalty.

Reports came through that Meghan was extremely high-maintenance in the palace and servers who worked for her had reportedly even quit their jobs due to her behavior. Of course, none of these reports are reliable, but they certainly made their way through newspapers around the world.

Meghan's parenting style has also been criticized.

She was repeatedly mom-shamed after paparazzi snaps emerged of her "awkwardly" holding baby Archie - a struggle that any new mom can totally relate to. Shaming a new parent is completely uncalled for, and this made it very obvious that the press were desperate to stir hate.

Meghan's eventful life was something that the papers simply loved to pick apart...

And it seemed that British tabloid paper, The Mail on Sunday, took things a step too far when they published an intimate and private letter that Meghan wrote to her father earlier this year.

The pair had no choice but to take legal action against publishers of the Daily Mail...

This decision came as Prince Harry made a highly personal attack on the British tabloid press over the treatment of his wife, saying that he could "no longer be a silent witness to her private suffering."

And it was following from this scandal that the couple made their shock announcement.

The royal couple announced via their joint Instagram page at the start of the year that they were stepping down as senior members of the royal family. "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 explained how they planned to split their time between North America and the UK.

"We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. "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."

This was a huge deal.

And, obviously, their decision shook things up. "We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge, and all relevant parties."

Twitter exploded with reactions to the news, and they were certainly mixed.

Some were outraged, claiming that Meghan and Harry shouldn't be able to rely on the taxpayer while they become finically independent.

Apparently, the pair didn't tell anyone about the news, instead opting to break it through Instagram.

According to the BBC, no other senior members of the royal family were consulted - including the Queen - and Buckingham Palace is "disappointed." The report also claims that senior royals are said to be "hurt" by the controversial announcement.

But can they really blame Meghan and Harry for making this decision?

The couple, especially Meghan, have received an unbelievable amount of negative press and comments over the years - which is enough to drive anyone mad.

The couple have now moved to LA with their son, Archie.

Making it across the border mere hours before it closed, Meghan and Harry are reportedly riding out the coronavirus pandemic in a secluded compound in Malibu.

And, thanks to the move, things have changed for the better.

"Meghan’s thrilled to have escaped the chaos of London. She feels like a new person," a source close to the pair said. "On top of not being hounded by the British press 24/7, Meghan reportedly likes that she doesn’t have to worry about following outdated royal protocol anymore."

She can now live a normal life.

“Meghan can go out in yoga pants and not be criticized for not following a dress code. She feels more relaxed and loves walking around fresh-faced with barely any makeup on."

And to make things even better for the pair...

It was reported that Harry and Meghan bought a $14.65 million mansion in Montecito, Santa Barbara... making them neighbors with Oprah and Ellen DeGeneres.

It looks like they're having the time of their lives...

And their new Christmas card also proves that.

The picture was released by Mayhew, a London-based animal charity who were thrilled to do the revelation.

"We’re thrilled to receive wonderful Christmas wishes from our Patron," they wrote. "The Duchess of Sussex, who also made a personal donation, helping dogs, cats, and our community. From all of us at Mayhew, thank you and Merry Christmas."

The gorgeous shot shows off Meghan, Harry, and their son Archie...

They're sat outside a mini playhouse (probably built for Archie, I don't think the couple will have any luck squeezing into that!) all laughing together with their little pup by their side too.

And now, the family have hit the headlines once again.

This time, for baby Archie sharing his first public words on their new podcast, Archewell Audio. People had a lot to say...

The first episode was released yesterday and starred some huge names including Elton John and Tyler Perry.

But, of course, Archie upstaged them all with his first words.

Meghan first asked Archie if he's having fun...

To which the tot replied, "Fun."

Prince Harry then coaxed him into saying "Happy New Year."

Something the couple were very happy about.
