Meghan Markle reportedly 'embarrassed' Prince Harry by announcing her pregnancy

The explosive family secrets have been revealed in a new tell-all book.

Every family has their drama right? Well the royals aren't above it, apparently.

A new book has claimed that the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle left her husband Prince Harry 'embarrassed' after announcing her pregnancy during Princess Eugenie's wedding day 'in a huge social gaffe,' which left the bride and her mother Sarah Ferguson 'furious.'

The mother-of-one confirmed she was carrying her first child (who we now know as the adorable baby Archie), while attending Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's nuptials with the rest of the Royal family on 12 October 2018.

Prince Harry looks unsettled as he attends the wedding of his cousin Princess Eugenie.

However, Harry was not impressed by his wife's flipant move, according to investigative journalists Dylan Howard and Andy Tillett, who detail all this and more in in their new book Royals At War.

"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 authors 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."

In a photo uploaded on her Twitter, Sarah appears to look rather upset.



According to authors, sharing the news left Prince Harry, who currently resides in LA with his wife and son, feeling ‘embarrassed’.

Interestingly, Meghan and Prince Harry only confirmed the duchess' pregnancy in public three days later, a day before their royal tour of Australia and New Zealand on October 15, 2018.

Although the author's claims appear to be explosive, a source previously told that Prince Harry and Meghan did not share their pregnancy news at the family wedding.

"Harry and Meghan did not break the news to their family at the wedding," she source said.

"The Queen and Prince Philip, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, and Eugenie and Jack all knew about Meghan's pregnancy before the wedding, but hadn't seen the Sussexes in person until Friday—making the wedding the first time these members of the royal family could congratulate the couple in person."

Shortly after, a representative for Kensington Palace confirmed that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, and the Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge were "delighted for the couple."

And how could they not be? They've got baby Archie.
