The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared a black and white picture of themselves under a tree, with Harry opting to go shoeless prompting fans to complain about his ‘dirty’ feet.
However, it is thought that it is the ‘shading’ of the photo that is making the prince’s feet appear mucky.
Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “Congratulations Harry and Meghan.. but serious is there any need for Harry’s bare feet.”
“I think Harry needs to wash his feet though…Great photo” agreed another.

A third tweeted: “Sorry Harry, but is there anything people want to see less than .. a man’s naked feet. Unless carved by Michelangelo.”
“Someone needs to buy Harry shoes. Ewwww, feet” tweeted one.
“OK OK I’ll be the one to say it. If I never see Prince Harry’s bare feet again it’ll be too soon” added another.
The couple announced the pregnancy on Valentine’s Day.
“We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother,” a spokesman for the couple said.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “Her Majesty, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales and the entire family are delighted and wish them well.”
The pregnancy photo was taken by the couple’s longtime friend and photographer Misan Harriman.
The wonderful news comes just months after Meghan revealed her “unbearable grief” after suffering a miscarriage in July.
The Duchess of Sussex, 39, wrote of the moment she knew she was “losing” her second baby in a deeply personal essay for the New York Times.
