Ms McCartney is the daughter of the Beatles guitarist and songwriter, Paul McCartney and an extremely successful fashion designer, whose clothes are in high demand all over the world. On Sunday, the Duchess of Sussex attended the memorial service at the Cenotaph wearing a £1,500 coat from Ms McCartney’s autumn 2019 collection. The famous fashion designer decided to share the photograph of the Duchess on Instagram, adding a few of her own words.
She wrote: “So honoured to have HRH Duchess of Sussex in our Autumn ’19 coat at Remembrance Day service. x Stella”.
However, this provoked outrage on Instagram, as social media users accused Ms McCartney of disrespecting the memorial service to cynically promote her products.
One person wrote: “Remembrance Day is to honour those who fought for us not to use for advertising purposes.
Another commented: “Today is about those who gave their lives for our freedom. Who gives a f*** what she’s wearing.”
While a third said: “I’m really surprised, shocked, saddened and disappointed that you uploaded this post.
“This is only my opinion, but I feel it was a completely inappropriate occasion to advertise.”
Although her post also received 44,000 likes, Ms McCartney subsequently removed the post.
JUST IN: Does The Crown dig at Meghan and Harry with this line from Queen?
Ms McCartney has held her silence over the incident, declining to make any comment to the media.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that Meghan and Harry have left the Queen “hurt” after opting to snub spending Christmas at Sandringham with the Royal Family.
A source close to the family admitted they would likely spend the festive period either with Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland in the US or in Windsor.
The Christmas will be Archie’s first.

According to The Sun, Harry has spent every Christmas with the Royal Family in Sandringham, bar one in 2012 when on tour in Afghanistan.
But in a surprise snub, the source said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wanted to recharge.
The source said: “They need some time away to recharge and decide their plans for next year.”
Despite their best intentions, the move has caused controversy with experts.
Royal biographer Ingrid Seward believes the decision will leave the Queen “hurt”.
She explained: “Christmas at Sandringham can be quite stressful so perhaps they don’t want to go with Archie at such a young age.
“Having said that, Sandringham has played host to many many children through the ages and is well set up for them.
“I think it’s sad they don’t want to be part of the family gathering, particularly now the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are in their dotage.
“The Queen might be a little hurt but she’s far too gracious to ever let it show or be known.”
