It's always something, isn't it? Even though Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton showed the world they're totally cool and not feuding on Wednesday by hitting up a polo match together with their babies, fans are still finding something to complain about. After photos of the royal playdate surfaced, Meghan was mom-shamed for holding Archie Harrison the "wrong" way. 

  • The internet was delighted -- and horrified, apparently -- when new photos of Meghan and baby Archie were revealed.

    Some felt that the Duchess of Sussex was holding her adorable baby in a wrong -- and in possibly a dangerous -- way. Others felt that she was "unnatural."

    Unnatural? Are we all looking at the same photo? Meghan looks completely comfortable to us! Perhaps she feels a little uncomfortable at the fact that there are a zillion cameras in her face.

  • Upon seeing some of the photos, one royal fan called Meghan the "Smother of the Year."

    She looks like she's just protecting her baby to us. 

  • Another person tweeted that Meghan was making her anxious with the way she was holding Archie. 

    "[She] seems so awkward and uncomfortable around her own son," she wrote. 

  • One user agreed with the previous person, saying Meghan looked "terribly uncomfortable."

    Are we missing something here?

  • According to the Daily Mail, some of the comments on Instagram about Meghan were even more cruel.

    "You can tell she doesn't even take care of her own kid. What kind of mother holds their baby like that," one person wrote, while another said: "She should have put a hat and socks on the poor baby! She is also not able to hold the baby."

  • Fortunately, though, there were plenty of people sticking up for Meghan as well. 

    One woman said that the bullying of Meghan Markle is "going to far" -- and to be honest, we agree.

  • Another person said that Archie looked perfectly comfy and cozy.

    Like he was "home lying on mommy's chest." 

    Doesn't get much better for a baby, does it?

  • And finally, one person said that the reason Meghan may have looked awkward was probably because she was trying to hide Archie from all the cameras. 

    Twitter needs some common sense indeed!

  • If we've said it once, we've said it a thousand times: The Meghan Markle hate is getting seriously old.

    If it isn't one thing, it's another, and we're not here for it. 

    And to be honest, we doubt Meghan and Harry are either -- or that they even care. After all, they've got a cute baby to cuddle.
