There are negative remarks and there are downright unpleasant remarks about a woman who has just had a baby.
It doesn’t matter whether they are royal or British or from outer space, such comments are just uncalled for.

downright unpleasant remarks

That I thought ( and later qualified ) that her bottom had got fatter? A bit oversensitive there don't you think?

Re: Archie?

It seems to me that at least a part of the irritation, here, lies in the way the words are felt. While some people understand "fat" to be offensive, per se, others feel it's just linguistic, and the opposite of "thin", just like "tall" and "short" are descriptive.

Is Meghan fatter than she was pre-pregnancy? Definitely. Should she be? By all means. It's one of nature's ways of protecting mother and infant, during that first potentially vulnerable year.

I think it's great that she showed herself round and real, happy and tired, beautiful in all of that truthtelling.

Megan reminds me alot of Wallace Simpson. Wallis Simpson (born Bessie Wallis Warfield; 19 June 1896 – 24 April 1986), later known as the Duchess of Windsor, was an American socialite whose intended marriage to the British king Edward VIII caused a constitutional crisis that led to Edward's abdication. Wallis grew up in Baltimore, Maryland.

Apart from things that about 80 percent of women have in common, I see no special likeness.

I thought the marriage was an excuse, and the real reason he had to go was his sympathy for Hitler.

Since then royals have learnt to keep their political views to themselves.

Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor... now that's a rather unusual name.

Perhaps the likeness between Harry and the comic strip was the inspiration?
It was a sign of great admiration for ACIII - aka Archie Luxury, the Pontiff, the governors governor
