New York Magazine deletes and reposts Meghan Markle tweet to add title Duchess of Sussex despite publication saying she’s ‘leave the firm’
- New York Magazine’s fashion branch, The Cut, deleted a tweet failing to mention Meghan Markle’s royal title
- The social media editor re-posted an almost identical tweet, but this time calling Markle The Duchess of Sussex
- In an exclusive interview, Markle talks about the restrictions on her social media posts
- She complained about her lack of autonomy from the royal family
- In the magazine’s tweet, the publication says she has ‘left the firm’, a derisive term for the royal family
- New York Magazine did not respond to a request for comment about the change
New York Magazine seems confused about Meghan Markle’s role in the royal family.
The glossy publication went out of its way to list her title – Duchess of Sussex – in a tweet Monday after deleting a post mentioning her by name only, according to the Daily Star.
The social media post from The Cut, the magazine’s fashion portal, originally read, “Presentation from the cover star of our Fall Fashion issue: Meghan Markle.”
It was removed, according to the Daily Star, and replaced with a tweet that said, “Presentation from our Fall Fashion edition cover star: Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.”
This tweet from New York Magazine’s fashion industry, The Cut, doesn’t mention Meghan Markle’s royal title
New York Magazine deleted a tweet that didn’t mention Meghan Markle’s royal title and replaced it with one that refers to her as the Duchess of Sussex
Both posts claimed she has cut ties with the British Royal Family, sometimes derisively referred to as ‘The Firm’.
“She left the Firm behind. Harry found a polo team in Santa Barbara. The children are doing great’, says the field.
The only other variation is the last sentence that says ‘Now Markle is ready for her own next act’ in the original tweet and ‘She’s ready for her own next act’.

In the interview, Markle professes her independence from the monarchy and boldly tells the magazine, “Want to know a secret? I’ll be back… on Instagram.”
She claimed that while she was living as a royal, she was restricted to a pre-existing account @KensingtonRoyal, on which she is allowed to post.

Before she married Harry, she had her own account with 3 million followers, according to New York Magazine.
“It’s a big adjustment — a huge adjustment to go from that kind of autonomy to another life,” Markle says.
It’s unclear why the magazine is touting the actress and lifestyle brand pitchwoman’s seemingly contradictory message about independence from and membership of the royal family.
A question to New York Magazine was not immediately answered.
In March 2020, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Markle announced that they would be taking ‘a step back’ from their roles as ‘senior members’ of the royal family.
