Meghan Markle: Pregnancy announcement sparked royal outrage, claims new book

One source said the pregnancy meant the Duchess of Sussex was “ensuring her connection with the family was now irrevocable and ceding even more power to her”.

Meghan fell pregnant three months after her marriage to Prince Harry.

Although the pregnancy was officially announced on October 15, 2018, the book claims Meghan told the Royals she was expecting at the wedding of Harry’s cousin, Princess Eugenie.

It claims the announcement was reported to have made Prince Harry “embarrassed”.

Howard and Tillett said in the book: “Meghan put her foot in it when she decided that it would be the ideal moment to announce that she and Harry were expecting their first child.

 

“This was a huge social gaffe, even if you were not a Royal – stealing the limelight from Eugenie, who was furious, as was her mother, Sarah.”

However, this claim is disputed by other sources while Kensington Palace said in a statement on the day of the birth that the senior royals “were delighted” by the news.

The book also claims Meghan’s choice of fashion sense during her pregnancy raised eyebrows from royal officials.

Howard and Tillett added: “There were considerable rumblings over Meghan’s appearance.

“In the early days of the pregnancy, insiders said that Meghan had earned a stern telling-off.”

For Harry and Meghan the pregnancy was celebrated with both speaking out on being eager to become parents.

In a 2016 interview, the Duchess of Sussex said that becoming a mother was on her “bucket list”.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry said in their engagement interview a year later: “You know, I think one step at a time, and hopefully we’ll start a family in the near future.”
