Angry royalists have demanded the Sussexes be stripped of their royal titles after the release of their Netflix film trailer.
The new film, simply called Harry & Meghan, looks set to cause quite the stir and also cast a dim view of the Royal Family and the media.
One user wrote in response to the trailer: "Hypocrites! They want to destroy The Royal Family but don't mind holding titles and reaping rewards. King Charles needs to strip their titles!"

Another said: "It's the titles that need dropping. I'm sorry what is our government doing allowing our British royal family to be destroyed by two people who hold British royal titles? Speak up Rishi, this is no longer a private family fallout."
Many were suspicious of the timing of the release.
"This is totally co-ordinated everything about this is wrong, and it is my belief that the stalling on this release was because they had to make sure the Queen had passed away to do the maximum damage to the rest of the royal family," one Twitter user said.
However, others disagreed.
"I can’t even imagine how difficult these times must have been. Just a little bit of empathy and compassion with these two goes a very long way I’m sure," one said.
"Queue the Meghan obsessives who will literally criticise her for anything. Whatever she does she can't win."
Meanwhile royal commentator Dickie Arbiter made the point that stripping them of their titles would not be a straight-forward procedure.
"#MichaelCole claims H&M could have their titles removed. That would take an act of Parliament removing the Dukedom & right now they have a broken country to deal with. As for Diana, she didn't lose her title which came with marriage only HRH a gift from the late Queen," he said.
The film, in which Harry has promised to reveal "the full truth", comes out on Thursday (December 8).
Harry and Meghan's representatives have been approached for comment.
