The Timing Upset Eugenie
Meghan Markle announced her pregnancy during Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brookbank, which was already soured by accusations that the wedding was a waste of taxpayers' money. RadarOnline says the news “tipped Eugenie over the edge” and she “felt furious at having been upstaged again by Harry and Meghan.”
Stealing her Thunder
A royal family insider said that Eugenie’s reaction to the baby news was understandable, and Harry and Meghan made an official announcement just a few days after the wedding. Some think that Meghan and Harry should have broken the news via the official announcement only, letting Eugenie have her moment.
A Sour Relationship
Markle’s pregnancy announcement fed into rumors that Eugenia and her sistere Beatric were “at war” with Markle; a source told New Idea that the sisters “don't think Meghan is good enough to be a royal.” Moreover, Eugenie wanted to marry Jack in 2017, but “had to wait for Harry to go first,” according to a source for Vanity Fair.
Her Mom Snubbed Markle
Moments after Kensington Palace announced Markle’s pregnancy, Eugenie’s mother Sarah Ferguson tweeted a picture of herself at her daughter's wedding, without a word about the pregnancy news. The UK press is convinced that this was a snub, and the day of the announcement was also Ferguson's birthday.
A Royal ‘Tweetstorm’
Ferguson's Twitter output shot upwards soon after Markle’s pregnancy announcement, with constant praise for her daughter Eugenie. “So proud of Eugenie and Jack,” Ferguson wrote alongside a snap of the newlyweds exiting St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, the same place where Harry and Meghan wed.
