A UK family lawyer has been suspended after posting tweets mocking the name of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s daughter.

After the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their daughter’s name and explained that it was a tribute to Harry’s mother and grandmother, people began to mock them and their support for the Black Lives Matter movement by asking why they didn’t give their daughter a name showing their support for the movement.

Journalist Julie Burchill asked why they didn’t name their daughter after the late George Floyd who died after a police officer knelt on his neck.

She wrote on Twitter: “What a missed opportunity. They could have called it Georgina Floydina.”

Toch quickly apologized for the insensitive reply, writing in a follow-up tweet: “I am very sorry for the comment and what I saw was a joke. I’ve fought during my professional life against racism which is abhorrent.

“I’m not a judge and I have children of colour and I apologise unreservedly.”
