MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry’s Instagram was attacked by vile racist trolls minutes after they introduced their newborn son to the world.
The new parents delighted millions by announcing the arrival of their firstborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor.
But it didn’t take long for a mob of cruel trolls to descend after Archie made his social media debut in a series of snaps on the Sussex Royal Instagram.
First-time mum Meghan was branded “jealous”, “greedy” and “shameful” in hateful comments on the official page.
One wrote about her hair and also urged them to stop accepting taxpayers’ cash.
Another claimed the new mum was jealous and wanted to be the future Queen.
Their comments come months after Kensington Palace promised to take action against trolls targeting the Royal Family.
In March, a set of guidelines were released for people interacting with Royal social media accounts, including Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
Comments must not contain spam, be defamatory, or abusive and not “promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age.”
Sanctions available include deleting comments and blocking users, while officials promised to pass the worst examples to police.
In another development sparking anger online, BBC Radio 5 Live host Danny Baker was forced to issue an apology over a “racist” royal baby tweet showing a picture of a monkey.
He was slammed for the post, which he tweeted just hours after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry showed off little Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
It showed a picture of a couple clinging on to a monkey wearing a suit with the caption: “Royal baby leaves hospital”.
He later removed the post after receiving backlash from users branding it “racist” due to Meghan’s heritage.
The Duchess of Sussex’s estranged dad Thomas Markle is white and mother Doria Ragland is black.
In a later apology, Baker said: “Sorry my gag pic of the little fella in the posh outfit has whipped some up.
“Never occurred to me because, well, mind not diseased.
“Soon as those good enough to point out it’s possible connotations got in touch, down it came. And that’s it.
“Now stand by for sweary football tweets.”
