Pregnant with her second child, Meghan Markle should not organize a baby shower for her little girl, because of the “conflicts” going on in the world, said a source close to Harry’s wife to our source this Wednesday, May 12.
Will Meghan Markle organize a big baby shower for the birth of her daughter? A priori not. According to our source, the wife of Prince Harry would not want to organize an expensive celebration while the epidemic continues to ravage the world. “Meghan doesn’t think a big baby shower with gifts is appropriate at this time. There is too much conflict in the world,” said a source close to the American actress, who is pregnant with her second child, this Wednesday, May 12.
Committed to the fight against Covid-19, Archie’s mom has mobilized to promote vaccination in disadvantaged countries through her foundation Archewell, alongside her husband. “They both feel that their time and resources can be used for better purposes,” adds the couple’s close friend to our source.
In addition to her humanitarian reasons, the memory of Archie’s baby shower probably played a role in this decision. Then seven months pregnant, Meghan Markle had caused controversy by organizing a party considered overpriced, in February 2019. This small reception had gathered fifteen close friends in New York, at the time when the companion of Prince Harry, grandson of Elizabeth II, was still engaged with the British crown.
In the cast of the festivities, several celebrities had responded present, including the tennis champion Serena Williams and the lawyer Amal Clooney. A very controversial reception, in a prestigious penthouse of the Mark Hotel, which had fueled many rumors about the exact cost of the mondanities. In a lawsuit against Associated Newspapers (Daily Mail), the actress of Suits had attacked the tabloid for spreading false information about this baby shower. If the sum of 270 000 euros had been mentioned for a time, the budget would have actually represented “a tiny part” of this amount, said his lawyers.
A very noticed absence
Beyond the amount spent, the New York trip of Meghan Markle has been much talked about for another reason. The mother of the actress, Doria Ragland, did not make the trip to celebrate the arrival of her grandson. While her daughter was celebrating with her friends, the yoga teacher had been photographed walking her dog in Los Angeles.
Faced with the controversy, the main interested party had replied by legal way. “The mother of the claimant was of course invited, Meghan also offered to buy his plane tickets,” said his lawyers, claiming that Doria Ragland was prevented “because of professional commitments.
