Meghan "embarrassed" Prince Harry by committing faux pas

Meghan Markle "embarrassed" Prince Harry by announcing that she was pregnant on Princess Eugenie's wedding day in new claims in this fiery book.

The Duchess of Sussex allegedly told the Royal Family that she was pregnant with the pair's first child at the wedding in October 2018, according to The Sun.

The Duke of Sussex was reportedly left reeling when his wife announced the pregnancy at the wedding.

In the new book Royals at War, authors Andy Tillett and Dylan Howard claimed that Eugenie and her mother Sarah Ferguson were "furious" at Meghan's decision.

“Meghan put her foot in it when she decided that it would be the ideal moment to announce that she and Harry were expecting their first child,” the pair wrote.

“This was a huge social gaffe, even if you were not a royal – stealing the limelight from Eugenie, who was furious, as was her mother, Sarah.”

Royal insiders have previously denied this claim.

According to Bazaar.com, The Sussex's told the Queen and Prince Philip, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank before the wedding.

However, the public announcement of Meghan's pregnancy on social media as Twitter users noticed that Sarah Ferguson posted a picture of Eugenie's wedding at the same time.

The book also claims that Prince Harry is "secretly tortured" over his decision to leave the Royal Family, with his feelings made worse as his father, Prince Charles, tested positive for coronavirus.

“On top of it all, he’s got cabin fever," an insider claimed.

“It was far from an ideal situation. Harry’s gone from feeling excited about the move to feeling secretly tortured.”
