Royal fans fume at Meghan as new Archie snap distracts from William and Kate

Meghan Markle has appeared in a new photo with her son Archie – leaving some royal fans fuming that she's trying to steal Prince William and Kate Middleton's thunder.

Archie, three, appeared sat on his mother's lap in a screenshot from an online chat released on the same day the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are due to touchdown in the US.

Meghan and Archie, with his grandmother Doria Ragland also in the room, were on the call with Professor Duchess Harris, an American studies and feminism academic, as well as Jotaka Eaddy, the CEO of social impact consulting firm Full Circle Strategies.

A screenshot of the call was shared by Prof Harris on Twitter, who said she's working on a new book project titled Racism and the British Monarchy: A Meghan Markle Reader.

Although many royal fans gushed over the rarely-seen Archie, whose gingerish hair was on full display, others were angered by the image.

Some suggested that the snap would steal the thunder away from the Duke and Duchess of Wales, who have travelled stateside to promote William's Earthshot Prize, an environmental project.

One tweeted: "Notice Rachel Markle [Meghan's birth name] puts this out to try and distract from Prince William and princesses of wales ! Poor Archie is her moms Pawn. [sic]"
