Wendy William has been slammed for insulting the Queen during a strange rant where she insulted Her Majesty for suggesting the title of Earl of Dumbarton for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son Archie.

The pair recently rejected the Scottish title, which is currently held by Prince Harry, with reports suggesting it was due to the fact it had the word 'dumb' in it and they didn't want him to be bullied over it.

Williams told viewers: "I love that Meghan and Harry insisted that he would not be called the Duke of...."

"The Duke of 'Dumberton' they wanted to call him, 'Dumberton," a producer jumped in, mispronouncing the word.

"Look Harry and Meghan rejected the name Earl of 'Dumberton' for Archie and I suspect you know because the Queen is a mean b**** behind the scenes...they were like what title can we give this Black boy...'Dumberton'," Williams added.

"But Meghan and Harry didn't want him to be bullied in school, you know he would be."

"Because no matter what kind of fancy school you go to, nothing is higher than being a royal. Dummy, dum dum, dum, dumber and dumbest."

Her producer added: "The nicknames write themselves.'Dumberton'? No!"

Fans of the Queen were unimpressed by Williams' assessment of the Queen with one user writing, "Queen branded 'mean B****' by US TV host who insists Archie 'would be bullied' for title... THIS IS TOTAL GARBAGE! WENDY WILLIAMS HAS WRONG INFO!!"

"You are ignorant about British history," another user wrote. "Where do get off calling the Queen a b***h? You are beyond disrespectful Wendy."

A source told The Telegraph last month: "They didn’t like the idea of Archie being called the Earl of Dumbarton because it began with the word 'dumb' [and] they were worried about how that might look."

"It wasn’t just Meghan who pointed out the potential pitfalls, it also bothered Harry," another added.

Earl of Dumbarton is one of the three titles that Prince Harry holds, as well as Duke of Sussex and Baron Kilkeel in Northern Ireland.

The title, which is of Scottish nobility, was created in 1675 for Lord George Douglas and became extinct in 1749 when there was no longer a male heir.

However, Queen Elizabeth II decided to bring back the title in 2018 for Prince Harry’s wedding as part of the Peerage of the United Kingdom.

Archie Mountbatten-Windsor would’ve naturally inherited the title upon Harry’s death, had his parents not declined the use of it.
