King Charles III's acknowledgement of Harry and Meghan during speech draws mixed reaction from public

King Charles III's address to his son Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle during his first speech as King has sparked debate online over whether His Majesty was being snarky or not.

In his televised speech, the King acknowledged Prince Harry who left the Royal Family in 2020 with his wife Meghan.

"I want also to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas."

On social media, people had mixed reactions to what the King had to say about the outspoken former Royal members.

One person tweeted: "In King Charles speech he mentions Harry & Meghan, no Duke & Duchess of Sussex. I think we all know what that means - title’s rescinded."

Another tweeted and said: "He made it clear that they are going back to the US! I think it was to pave the way for stripping their titles."

Another user thought the King addressed Harry and Meghan to be inclusive.

"See the inclusivity, folks. The King was talking about new roles and responsibilities and stepped away to express love for non-working royals. He supports and loves them and wants it known," the user tweeted.

Other users took a dig at Harry and Meghan and thought the King not addressing them by their royal titles meant he was stripping them of their titles.

"I don't think that's what Harry wanted to hear. I believe him and the Mrs are still hoping for half in-out," one user tweeted.

Another agreed and tweeted: "Just Harry and Meghan, NO titles."

Harry and Meghan decided to step away from their royal duties and move to the United States in 2020 after years of scrutiny from the media.
