  • Meghan Markle has had a difficult start to royal life, with everything from her fashion choices to her decisions regarding the upbringing of baby Archie never failing to divide the public and cause viral news.

    One of Meghan Markle’s most controversial decisions revolved around her baby shower earlier this year, with the Duchess of Sussex celebrating her pregnancy with an intimate A-list party at the Mark Hotel in New York City, rumoured to have cost $200,000.

    From the A-list attendees (we’re talking Amal Clooney, Abigail Spencer and Serena Williams) to the rumoured flower arranging class and the sweet, edible gifts she gave to her guests, the details of the private gathering were widely discussed – and so was the supposed reaction of the queen.

    But in contrast to what many thought was the case; Meghan Markle didn’t actually get in trouble with the queen over her baby shower. Instead, the former Suits actress was simply informed about the fact that it was not in line with the way British royals celebrate these occasions.

    ‘She was made aware that in Kensington Palace and the royal family, that’s not the way they do it with a big, flashy baby shower like the one she had in NYC,’ a source told Us Weekly.

    Further details emerged this weekend, with a source informing Us Weekly that despite the backlash, Meghan has no regrets over the event.

    ‘She doesn’t regret the baby shower in NYC that got so much backlash,’ the source explained to the US publication. ’She doesn’t regret celebrating her baby or doing it in NYC.’

    Well, that’s that.
