It wasn’t long before many of his followers responded.

One said: “They want Freedom, OK now give up all the titles and 2.5 million pocket money of daddy, oh his help with the security oh and his help with the mortgage…”

“I have been a lifetime supporter of the British Royal Family,” another fumed.

“If the Markles are not stripped of their royal titles, I am going to become an ardent supporter of dethroning them all.

“Even though I think other royal members have made a valiant effort at being decent human beings.”

But it wasn’t all anger.

One follower came out in support of Meghan.

“Because the right-wing press here vilified Meghan Markle from day one – they didn’t like the fact that she is mixed race and an independent, successful woman.

“There’s only so much anyone can take. If they didn’t move away their marriage would have broken down.”

What did the couple say?

In a statement released yesterday, Harry and Meghan – now living in the US – said: “Our lives, both independent of each other and as a couple…

“…have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection.

“Through our work with diverse communities and their environments…

“…to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.
