Meghan Markle mocked by royal fans for labelling Harry a ‘feminist’ in interview

Royal fans have voiced their opinion over Megan Markle labelling Prince Harry a feminist, with one even saying they "want to vomit".

In a recent interview with US activist Gloria Steinem, Meghan recalled that Harry had confessed he was a feminist.

The 39-year-old's comments have left fans divided, with many taking to social media to mock the duo.

While talking to Gloria, Meghan recalled when Harry said to the activist: "You know that I'm a feminist too, right Gloria?! It's really important to me that you know that."

She went on to gush about Harry being a great example to their son, Archie.

Meghan said: "I look at our son and what a beautiful example that he gets to grow up with a father who is so comfortable owning that as part of his own self-identification.

"That there’s no shame in being someone who advocates for fundamental human rights for everyone, which of course includes women."

However, social media users picked up on the comment and felt feminism is not Harry's choice.

One Twitter user said: "Since when did feminist mean 'under the thumb?'"

Another particularly insecure male added: "Men need masculinity, not feminism."

One user also said they "want to vomit" over Harry’s feminism, with another commenting: "Could he be any more pathetic?"

But others took the critics to task, and backed Harry for being "a beautiful example" to his son, reports ExpressOnline.

One Twitter user said: "Prince Harry was a feminist before Meghan even got into the picture.

"How can you have a grandma that’s a queen and NOT be a feminist?”

Another said: "He is his own man, especially when trolls are blaming Meghan for everything he says these days!"

One user also added it was nice to "see a caring man who respects his wife".

Harry has been vocal about feminism and supporting women long before meeting Meghan.

In 2014, the Duke took part in the HeForShe event, where he called for gender equality.

He said: "This is not just about women, we men need to recognise the part we play, too.

"Real men treat women with dignity and give them the respect they deserve."

Meghan has also previously backed up Harry’s support for feminism.

The Duchess said last year she hopes men are part of a global movement towards equality.

She said: "We must be global feminists and include men and boys.

"I hope men are part of the conversation. My husband certainly is."
