Meghan Markle has been slammed on social media as she has decided to continue to use her royal title even after saying people should all be 'linked not ranked' during an interview. While speaking to Gloria Steinem, Meghan, 39, revealed how much she loves Steinem's iconic feminist phrase "We are linked, not ranked" and that she also has a bracelet on the same that was given to her by the activist. She made it clear that she values solidarity over hierarchy during the Wednesday, August 26 interview, the Daily Mail reports.

Some social media users were quick to slam the mother of one accusing her of being a hypocrite and questioning how she can promote the concept of equality given she chooses to use her royal title. One such user shared, "Meghan Markle is obsessively jealous of Kate Middleton who outranks her so she made this comment about linking not ranking. She is in the end an insecure and rude narcissist who knows she isn’t royalty material but tries to prove to world she is. Stop using duchess title#megxit."



 

Another user commented and said, "Gloria is right indeed. But why try talking about being equal when HRH Megs insists on using a title of hierarchy on every occasion while pretending she’s one of us. She doesn’t want to be equal with ANYONE."



 

"I’d have a modicum of respect if she dropped the title. She wouldn’t even be interviewing Gloria, if she hadn’t married a prince. She is where she is by virtue of who she married. Drop the title if you want to be respected for who you are. Absolute hypocrite," commented yet another. 



 

Another social media user who echoed the same sentiments chimed in, "Says the Duchess of Sussex who pulls rank when it suits her: demanding working class loyal staff of HMTQ jumps when she clicks her finger, feigning discrimination when not being given the tiara of her choice, ordering people not to talk or look at her, and on and on."



 

The Question and Answer session between Meghan and Gloria was released on Wednesday, August 26 along with a behind the scenes clip. The clip featured the two women discussing a variety of things at length from voter suppression to gender equality. 

The ‘Suits’ actress and her husband Prince Harry stepped down from their roles as senior royals in March, planning to live a "financially independent" life away from Buckingham Palace. The Sussexes with their little son, Archie, are now living in Los Angeles, California after they recently moved there from Canada.

Around the time that couple announced their bombshell decision to step back as senior members of the royal family, the Buckingham palace released a statement saying that the couple will no longer enjoy the taxpayer's money to fund their lifestyle, nor will they be assigned any royal duties. 

"The Sussexes will not use their HRH titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family," the statement noted. "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared their wish to repay Sovereign Grant expenditure for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, which will remain their UK family home."
