Can people just leave Meghan Markle alone already? It’s no secret that Meghan has been under such intense scrutiny since joining the royal family, and sadly, it doesn’t look like that’s going to slow down anytime soon.

Earlier this week, Megs went to Prince Harry’s polo match against Prince William with baby Archie in tow. Considering Meghan and Harry have been pretty private when it comes to Archie, this was a big deal and everyone was excited to see the photos of her holding her son and kissing him on the forehead. But all that quickly turned sour when a few mom-shamers on Twitter saw and started criticizing Meghan for how she was holding him.

The haters were saying things like “Meghan looks like she’s about to drop him” and “The way little Archie is being held. Scary.” One person on Twitter actually took time out of their day to explain exactly what they thought was wrong with the photos and said:

“The poor Archie’s left arm is being held up by Meghan Markle’s left hand. Spreading both legs, & Archie’s shoulders are treated like a cushion for her left arm for a long time. Meghan Markle’s mother was supposed to teach Meghan how to hold a baby, including during prenatal care.”

Yep, they even tried to bring Ms. Doria Ragland into this.

And the ones about Meghan just making the nanny hold Archie all the time are truly infuriating because there’s nothing wrong with having a nanny if you need the extra help! And while it’s wild that this even has to be stated, Meghan’s definitely held her baby before — there’s photographic evidence!

Well, no matter what people are saying, you can bet Meghan is out there living her best life anyway and isn’t paying attention to the hate because she doesn’t even scroll through social media! She just reads The Economist, remember?!
