"Chris and I are formally stepping down from our royal duties. We appreciate your support," the comedian wrote.
On Tuesday, the "Trainwreck" star shared an Instagram post where she poked fun at the Royal bombshell. Captioning a photo of her and her husband, Chris Fischer, Schumer joked, "Chris and I are formally stepping down from our royal duties. We appreciate your support."
In the pic, below, the comedian can be seen getting pushed by her husband in a wheelchair on the beach. Schumer's dog also made an appearance as he rode in a tote bag on her lap.
Many stars took to the comments section to praise Schumer on her funny post.
"LMMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOO MY LOVE FOR YOU IS SO REAL!!!!!!" wrote Taraji P. Henson and Rosie O'Donnell added, "u will always be royal to me." Zoe Saldana and Brandi Carlile also chimed in with several laughing emojis.
Schumer, who shares 8-month-old son Gene with Fischer, often compared herself Harry and Meghan throughout her pregnancy, using royal family references as she reached her milestones. In fact, the "I Feel Pretty" star first announced she was expecting by sharing a photo of Duke and Duchess of Sussex and photoshopped her and Fischer's faces over them.
Schumer's post came after Prince Harry and Meghan stunned the world on Wednesday by announcing they plan to "step back as senior members of the Royal Family."
In an unprecedented move, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex -- who married in 2018 and welcomed son Archie in May 2019 -- will be splitting their time between the U.K. and North America to "work to become financially independent," according to their Instagram post.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
