Expecting mother Meghan Markle seems excited about the birth of her child that will be happening soon. As such, the American-born Duchess decided to have two baby showers – one in New York and one in London – to celebrate the life-changing event
However, not everyone has been happy to see Meghan Markle host two extremely extravagant parties and some see it as a very distasteful move.
Meghan Markle's two baby showers
On February 20th, the Duchess of Sussex had a baby shower at a five-star hotel in New York City. She was surrounded by several close friends, including recognizable faces such as Amal Clooney, Gayle King and Serena Williams. It was a very lavish affair that seemed to cost around $ 200,000.
It's been revealed that Meghan Markle will have another baby shower in London very soon. This will be reportedly smaller than the previous one, but it will include her husband, Prince Harry, as well as her mother, Doria Ragland.
How did the other royals react to her lavish events?
None of the British royals have publicly stated their views on Duchess of Sussex's baby showers, but
Paul Burrell, who used to work closely with the royal family as a butler, believes that Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (who did not have a baby shower for their three kids) would have disapprove of what Meghan has been doing. "I think William, as well as Kate Middleton, will be totally bewildered by why Meghan is doing all this, as there is no excuse for overindulgence or excess and that's what it seems to me."
According to British television Presenter Piers Morgan, Queen Elizabeth probably does not like it either. "We do not really have baby showers really in Britain," he shared. "The concept of a very extravagant party with a load of famous people turning to celebrate the arrival of a baby in a couple of months is not something we would do so the queen would be like, 'What is this?' To start with . "
Morgan also pointed out something similar to Burrell's point when it comes to royals and money:" The key thing about the royals is to be understated. We all know that they're royal, we all know that they're very wealthy. But the absolute number one rule is not rub the British people's noses in your wealth. "
