Kate Middleton Fan Wants Twitter To Change Algorithm After Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Trend
On Thursday, the Queen kicked off the Platinum Jubilee celebration. The Prince of Wales, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, with their three children — Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4 — were among those who made a balcony appearance and stood with the 96-year-old monarch during Trooping the Colour.
However, hours before the event, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were trending on Twitter. One "raging" fan of the Duchess of Cambridge wasn't happy about it and demanded Twitter stop the Duke and Duchess of Sussex from trending amid the Platinum Jubilee celebration, Daily Star reported.
"I think it's disgusting that Meghan and Harry are trending during the Queen Jubilee while William and Catherine the future King and Queen are not. Can you please fix your algorithm," the netizen asked Twitter Support.
Prior to the said tweet, Middleton's fan, Karen Armes, tweeted with a snapshot of the trending topics in the United Kingdom. The picture showed that "Meghan" was trending with over 17,000 tweets.

She also quote tweeted the Daily Star's report that featured a photo of Queen Elizabeth, Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Prince William, and Middleton.
"I will always defend our future Queen. I am proud of being her raging fan. Karen x," she wrote.
Markle's supporters fired back at Armes, and many shared one of her tweets back on Aug. 13, 2021, which read, "Meghan is the n word. People like her are too selfish to be Queen." One netizen even called her "evil b--ch."
