The US attorney and politician serving as the representative for New York’s 17th congressional district since 2021 tweeted: “Meghan Markle is bringing down an entire empire tonight, and I’m here for it.” New York congressman Mondaire Jones posted the tweet in the early hours of Monday morning and labels himself as also an attorney and activist on his Twitter biography. However, one of the citizens he represents responded to the tweet saying, “Mr Jones you are my representative.

“I voted for you and I agree that the monarchy is no longer necessary but the whole gossipy situation is too silly for you to be wasting your time with.”

One more follower of Mr Jones said: “As a United States government representative, are you suggesting, an American citizen take down the Royal family, the official Head of State of the United Kingdom?”

Many in the US have celebrated the event as a watershed moment to tackle Britain’s imperial past.

Writing in the Washington Post US journalist Karen Attiah said: “Ghana celebrated its independence from Britain yesterday.

“Harry and Meghan speak out on Oprah today.

“Feeling the anti-colonial ancestral energy this weekend.

“Let the imperial tea be spilt!”

When challenged that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could have made a more positive benefit to race relations by working within the Commonwealth she tweeted: “Persistent violent racism, inequality, and lust for empire is why the British Commonwealth even exists.”

On Sunday night Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first joint interview in years with host Oprah Winfrey.

The couple see the interview as a chance to clear the air after distancing themselves from other senior members of the royal family.

However, the social media sphere has erupted with the interview’s many bombshell revelations.

Especially the comparisons Prince Harry has made between his mother, the late Princess Diana, and his wife Meghan Markle.

Prince Harry told how he long feared “history repeating itself”, with Meghan facing similar pressure from the global press that his mother had before she died.

In a clip of the interview, Prince Harry can be heard saying, “I don’t want to sit around at Windsor.

“I just generally don’t like England that much.

“It’s nice to be away from all the press and the papers and all the sh** that they write.”
