MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry’s Instagram was attacked by vile “racist” trolls minutes after they introduced their newborn son to the world.
The new parents delighted millions by announcing the arrival of their firstborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor.
But it didn’t take long for a mob of cruel trolls to descend after Archie made his social media debut in a series of snaps on the Sussex Royal Instagram.
First-time mum Meghan was branded “jealous”, “greedy” and “shameful” in hateful comments on the official page.
One wrote: “Happy for you but think you are silly for some ways you have handled things!
“Understand mom not wanting to be photographed after birth! She has African hair that she likes styled and that can’t be done the last weeks of carrying a child!
“All she had to do was wrap her hair or let Harry show child (sic)!
“This couple claims to want privacy and this is great but quit taking money from the taxpayer!”
Another added: “Megan is so jealous that she is not the future Queen. Megan wants all the time.
“The Queen has put certain protocols in place so that your precious Difficult Duchess Meghan. She wants a home in Africa and a home in California.
“She was told the rules BEFORE she married Prince Harry. Like most greedy people she thought once she got that ring on her hand she could change Prince Harry.
“You are tearing Harry’s relationship with his brother Prince William apart because of your greed and selfishness and jealousy.”
Other trolls accused the royal couple of turning the birth into a “circus”.
“This is turning into a circus parading this kid around,” one troll wrote.
“Why are they releasing pics with the queen. Kate and William know what privacy (sic).
“Meghan needs to look up the definition. Dont ever claim your privacy is being infringed upon (sic).”
Social media poisoniv7 wrote: “She didn’t want parade outside the hospital as it is archaic but this is so modern right (sic)?
“There is no difference parading at the hospital or parading here. She just wanted to be different and command more attention.”
BBC Radio 5 Live host Danny Baker also issued an apology over a “racist” royal baby tweet showing a picture of a monkey.
He was slammed for the post, which he tweeted just hours after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry showed off little Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

It showed a picture of a couple clinging on to a monkey wearing a suit with the caption: “Royal baby leaves hospital”.
He later removed the post after receiving backlash from users branding it “racist” due to Meghan’s heritage.
The Duchess of Sussex’s estranged dad Thomas Markle is white and mother Doria Ragland is black.
In a later apology, Baker said: “Sorry my gag pic of the little fella in the posh outfit has whipped some up.
“Never occurred to me because, well, mind not diseased.
“Soon as those good enough to point out it’s possible connotations got in touch, down it came. And that’s it.
“Now stand by for sweary football tweets.”
CALLS FOR BAKER TO BE AXED
Outraged Twitter users called on the BBC to axe him from his BBC Radio 5 Live Saturday show following the tweet.
One said: “Imagine thinking that tweeting this would end well in 2019. Guess that’s Danny Baker cancelled, then… ”
Another wrote: “I’m assuming that The awful #BBC5Live Danny Baker programme will be cancelled. Please. #5Live”.
While one user said: “@BBC remove that racist pig Danny Baker for sending out that racist picture about the new #Royal baby. Disgraceful.”
Meghan and Harry proudly showed off their first born child today to the world.
The new parents appeared tired but ecstatic as they cradled the newborn, with mum Meghan gushing: “I have the best two guys in the world”.

She kept a watchful eye over her baby boy as she described life as a mum, saying: “It’s magic.
“It’s pretty amazing. I have the best two guys in the world, so I’m really happy.”
And she said the baby boy, who is just two days old, already had the “sweetest temperament” – with Harry interjecting: “I don’t know who he gets that from!”
The Prince later said: “Parenting is amazing. It’s only been what – two and a half days, three days – but we are just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy and to be able to spend some precious times with him as he slowly starts to grow up.”
