US television host Wendy Williams has faced severe backlash from royal fans after she insulted the Queen on air recently.

Williams called Queen Elizabeth II a "mean bitch" for her suggestion Meghan and Prince Harry's child Archie should have the royal title Earl of Dumbarton bestowed on him.

According to The Telegraph, Harry and Meghan rejected that title for fear their son would be bullied.

"They didn't like the idea of Archie being called the Earl of Dumbarton because it began with the word 'dumb' [and] they were worried about how that might look," The Telegraph quoted one source as saying.

In a strange rant on her television programme The Wendy Williams Show, Williams said she "loved" the fact the couple didn't take the title.

"Look Harry and Meghan rejected the name Earl of 'Dumberton' [sic] for Archie and I suspect you know because the Queen is a mean bitch behind the scenes… they were like, 'what title can we give this Black boy? 'Dumberton,'" Williams told viewers.

"But Meghan and Harry didn't want him to be bullied in school, you know he would be.

"Because no matter what kind of fancy school you go to, nothing is higher than being a royal. Dummy, dum dum, dumb, dumber and dumbest."

Royal fans didn't take kindly to her comments though, with Williams facing a torrent of criticism online.

"What Wendy said about the Queen was uncalled for. Everyone who knows her says how kind she is. She really did go over & beyond for [Harry and Meghan] so to publicly slander her is unfair," wrote one person on Twitter.

"Our Queen is not a b***h! And at least pronounce the Scottish town name properly that the Earldom comes from. It's pronounced dum Barton, not dumber ton. 

"You managed to upset the British and the Scottish in one rant!" wrote another.

A third person suggested the TV host "should wash her mouth out and then zip it".

"She insults our Queen, insults the fine town of Dumbarton [and] insults our intelligence by describing the son of a Caucasian man and a bi-racial woman as Black. Just an overpaid gob on a stick!"

Williams has also faced criticism recently for "offensive" and "abhorrent" comments about Tik Tok star Matima Miller, better known as Swavy, who was fatally shot earlier this month in Delaware.
