Kate and Will Are Getting Intense Backlash for Their Meghan Markle Birthday Post

There's even more royal birthday drama.

Literally, it seems like Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton cannot do an-y-thing on Instagram without people finding a reason to get upset. And hot on the heels of the backlash over Meghan and Harry's birthday message to Prince George, everyone is having a meltdown over Kate and William's birthday message to Meghan. Which, to be clear, was extremely nice:

You might be thinking "how could this sweet shoutout cause any problems?" Which, I know right? But everyone's upset for several reasons. First, we have the people who think it's super iffy that Kate and William didn't post a photo of Meghan solo, and that this picture is some sort of conspiracy for Kate to be the center of attention.

"It was better to choose a picture of herself alone."
"Wait...and why doesn't she have a picture of her alone? It's 'HER' birthday right?"
"All these royal photographers couldn’t find a pic of Meghan in the center?!?! In a brighter color???????????"
"Why a picture of the whole royal family?! It’s not about Kate or Wiliam or Charles! It’s about Meghan! Ridiculous!"
"That they chose an image where Duchess Meghan isn’t centered though the post is dedicated to her birthday speaks volumes as to the Cambridges’ lack of class."

Then there's everyone upset with Meghan for not using the Sussex Royal Instagram account to post individual birthday shoutouts to members of the Cambridge family like they did for her:

"Seriously all the royal accounts wished her a proper birthday wishes!! Something that she couldn’t do for them! 🙄"
"Did you see any birthday wishes from Harry and Meghan for Kate’s Jan birthday? Just asking for a friend."

And the people who think Kate is the "bigger person" because she posted a picture of Meg:

"Cambridges are the real royals."
"Go Cambridges! This is how you become the bigger person."
"His is why you cant buy class... You both are bigger person Duke and Duchess of Cambrigde."

Honestly...what's wrong with being happy Kate and William shouted out Meghan for her birthday and leaving it at that?
