Meghan Markle fans have blasted Prince William, who has previously been slammed over a ‘racist’ statement about Africa, as he reportedly made a ‘shameful’ comment about her.
According to Royal author Robert Lacy, the Duke of Cambridge has referred to Prince Harry’s wife as ‘that b****y woman,’ as well as describing her as ‘merciless’.
He reportedly told the Daily Mail: “According to one of my sources, it’s been pointed to him that everyone has a difficult sister-in-law.

“William’s response was to nod his head in sage acceptance. Then suddenly he broke out angrily. ‘But look at the way that bloody woman treated my staff – merciless!'”
After hearing what the Royal had been accused of saying, Markle’s fans took to social media and slammed the future King.
One fumed: “Prince William, the future King, calling Meghan ‘that b****y woman’ is a shameful reminder of the casual sexism and misogyny that women – particularly black women – face every single day as they seek to get on in the world.”
Another added: “Calling your sister-in-law ‘that b****y woman’ just says everything about Prince William. He’s his father’s son through and through.”
“Prince William calling Meghan ‘that b****y woman’ sounds just like his dad in the 90s about Diana,” a third wrote. “If the tabloids think such revelations make us all team Royal, then they’re kidding themselves. It only turns me more in the opposite direction.”
However, others rushed to his defense, arguing that the alleged comment was down to the supposed mistreatment of his staff, rather than anything personal.
Defending the 39-year-old, one tweeted: “Prince William was aware that Meg had bullied staff. Is everyone else allowed to get angry but him?
“Prince William is a man of honour and he cares about the working conditions of his staff.”
“I get it, it’s bad optics,” said a second. “But being royalty doesn’t mean you don’t break wind or share feelings with your mates?”
