The Meghan Markle pregnancy announcement in 2018 caused a scandal in the British royal family and put Prince Harry in a shameful position. It is reported by the Daily Mirror.
The conflict is described in the new book of journalists Dylan Howard (Dylan Howard) and Andy Tillett (Andy Tillett) Royals at War. They found out that members of the royal family learned about the pregnancy of Meghan Markle during the wedding of Princess Eugenia – the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II . Harry and Megan immediately congratulated Queen Elizabeth II with her husband Philip, Prince Charles with his wife Camilla and Prince William with his wife Kate, which distracted attention from the bride.
Princess Eugenia and her mother, the Duchess of York Sarah, were furious. Prince Harry, according to Howard and Tilett, was very ashamed of such a mistake, although he had an excuse: he and Megan were preparing for a trip to Australia and New Zealand, and there would have been no other case before its completion.
The official announcement of the pregnancy of Meghan Markle came on October 15, 2018, three days after the wedding of Princess Eugenia. The child was born on May 6, 2019. The firstborn was named Archie Harrison.
On April 1, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ceased to act as members of the British royal family. In order to get the right to move to the USA, to work and do business, they had to refuse the appeal “Your Royal Highness”, state financing and the Sussex Royal trademark. In the next 12 months they will be able to count on the help of Harry’s father, Prince Charles, who will pay for the expenses of his son and daughter-in-law from personal funds.
