Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Announces Their Pregnancy at The Most Inappropriate Time
The Royal family has reason to celebrate with a new entry into the royal household. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first child. Speculation of the Duchess of Sussex (as Markle is now called) pregnancy was ripe and has now been confirmed by Kensington Palace. “Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the spring of 2019. However, if this seems to be great news, not all quarters are happy and some have even felt that their announcement was made in the worst time. What was wrong about it?
1The couple has thanked the public for their support
The couple also issued a statement in which they thanked the public for all their support. “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”
2It was announced at an inappropriate moment
While the public got to know about it on the 15th of October, the couple actually announced it earlier and at the worst opportune moment. It was at Princess Eugenie’s wedding that the royal couple announced the news and many felt that it was not appropriate. Several tweets revealed how many of the public and some celebs too felt that it was not correct to have upstaged Princess Eugenie’s big day.
3Princess Eugenie’s wedding was a lavish one
The lavish wedding ceremony of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank was held St George’s Chapel after which there was a reception in the afternoon at Windsor castle. Princess Eugenie, ninth in line to the throne is the younger daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York.
4Prince Harry and Meghan are now touring Australia
The wedding was attended by Princess Harry and Meghan Markle along with the entire Royal household. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have now embarked on a 16-day tour of New Zealand, Australia, Fiji and Tonga. Soon after the announcement of the pregnancy, social media was ripe with comments where people were clearly not impressed.
5People have found it appalling at the manner of the announcement
Several people found it a bit appalling at the poor timing of the announcement while many went as far as to accuse the American actress of willfully attempting to outshine the wedding day of 28 year old Princess Eugenie.
