One woman put: ‘I’d leave my entire family for Meghan Markle too if I had the option. Don’t @ me.’ 

Activist Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu told the couple to ‘go forth and be happy’.

She told the ‘haters’ to shut up now that the duke and duchess were no longer using their HRH title, and would pay back the cash spent on refurbishing Frogmore Cottage.

Dr Mos-Shogbamimu added: ‘Bravo #HarryandMeghan! Go forth and be happy!

‘Now the haters should please shut up! No longer using HRH title, will pay back cost of refurbishing cottage

‘Are you happy now? Doubt it.. bet they’ll have more petty & petulant nonsense to say!’

Match Of The Day host Gary Lineker took a pop at Manchester City, suggesting the club had ‘renounced’ its title at the same time as Harry and Meghan had renounced theirs.

He said: ‘The Palace have announced Meghan & Harry have renounced their titles.

‘Meanwhile Palace have announced Man City have renounced theirs.’

Actor David Schneider said the biggest question was not why the duke and duchess were giving up their titles, but why the other royals should not.

He tweeted: ‘Yet again the question is not why Harry and Meghan should have to give up their title and fund themselves but why the rest of the royals shouldn’t.’

One user suggested the Queen had negotiated a transition deal so quickly she should also negotiate Brexit.

He added: ‘OK. #Megxit absolutely trumps #Brexit. Get HM into the negotiators chair.’

Others joked that it was a ‘hard Megxit’ with @TheTVGrump saying it looked like the pair had left under World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules.

Some Twitter users said they could not wait to see how it would covered be in future series of The Crown.
