Amy Schumer Trolls Meghan Markle And Prince Harry With A 'Royal' Announcement Of Her Own

Amy Schumer was not about to quietly stand by while all this news about Harry and Meghan stepping away from royal life whizzes around the interwebs.

In typical Schumer fashion, she took to Instagram for some timely trolling.


Schumer is responding to the recent bombshell that Harry and Meghan dropped on the whole world, describing their decision to "step back" from their roles as senior members of the royal family.

Harry is 6th in line to the throne while elder brother William and his children are in the 3rd through 5th positions. Harry and Meghan's son Archie—who currently has no royal title—is 7th in line.

Whether Buckingham Palace will take steps to change the order of succession based on Prince Harry's decision is unclear.

Not long after the complete media storm sparked by that very post was well underway, Schumer posted her own version of independent decree, featuring husband and baby daddy, Chris Fischer, saying:

"Chris and I are formally stepping down from our royal duties. We appreciate your support."

Notice the similarities in these photographs. An eye for detail is not lost on Amy.

The comedian's post aroused plenty of laughs from followers.

This Schumer vs. Duke & Duchess behavior is by no means an isolated incident.

In fact, Amy Schumer has repeatedly poked at Markle throughout their simultaneous pregnancies in late 2018, early 2019. At one point, Schumer even jokingly called Markle her "nemesis" during an interview with InStyle.

Check Schumer's pregnancy announcement on Instagram.

If you look closely you can see that the photo's been tampered with.

Schumer even did a little jab from the ER during her birth announcement too.

Silly, yes, but Schumer's trolling is not without its legitimate commentary on the demands placed on celebrities to constantly perform.

And that sometimes real life is messy.

We may not quite know what will happen with Harry and Meghan. But it appears Amy Schumer is planning to keep on keepin' on regardless.
