Stella McCartney 'disrespectful' for promoting Meghan Markle's Remembrance Sunday coat

Stella McCartney 'disrespectful' for promoting Meghan Markle's Remembrance Sunday coat

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Prince William and Kate Middleton had a Fab-Four reunion at the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance in London.

Kate's dress featured a slim black waistband and she teamed it with a pair of sheer black tights.

While the nation marked Remembrance Day on Monday, the Duchess of Sussex also chose to honour servicemen and women in the USA by sharing a post about Veterans Day. It is held the day before Remembrance Sunday. A carousel of images was posted to Prince Harry and Meghan's official Instagram account, including one snap that showed the mother-of-one visiting United States troops long before she joined the royal family.

However, other Instagram users found the post inappropriate, claiming McCartney was using the Remembrance Sunday ceremony to sell her designs.

"She flew all the way with a newborn to see me play in NY and flew all the way back that night, and I probably couldn't have done that".

"It kinda goes to show you what an wonderful person she is and that's just one of the many things that she does for me". "Just wrong." One comment read.

Prince Harry, sixth-in-line to the throne, sat with his wife Meghan Markle on the second row with Prince Anne and Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex.

"Using Remembrance Day to advertise your clothes is a little disrespectful!"

"Today is about those who gave their lives for our freedom".

But the royal was wearing his poppy - an artificial flower that has been used since 1921 to commemorate military members who have died in war - only it was hard to spot as it was tucked above his left ear and pinned to his Royal Marine cap.

One accused McCartney of being "extremely tacky" while another said they were "disappointed" by the post.

A short time before posting the picture, McCartney posted a video of poppies - the Remembrance Day symbol - in a field with the caption "Remembering the ones that sacrificed to give us freedom".

During an interview for an ITV documentary on South Africa, Meghan admitted feeling vulnerable during her pregnancy and thanked Mr Bradby for asking about how she was feeling.
