While Meghan Markle and Prince Harry celebrate their third wedding anniversary this May 19, Princess Beatrice announced her pregnancy on the same day. A gesture that does not seem to be pure coincidence.
While the scandals continue to shake the British monarchy, Elizabeth II can finally enjoy a good news. One of her granddaughters, Princess Beatrice, is pregnant with her first child. “Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are expecting their first baby!”, said Buckingham Palace, in a statement issued this May 19. An upcoming birth that does not fail to intervene in a symbolic day. Indeed, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry celebrate this same day their third wedding anniversary. Event that no member of the royal family has bothered to comment on social networks.
For Beatrice of York, the announcement of her pregnancy could be a foot in the door to Meghan Markle. For the latter has not failed to steal the show on several occasions to her younger sister Eugenie of York. Whether on the day of her wedding in October 2018, or shortly after the birth of her first child, last February. At each of these events, the Sussexes put the spotlight on them, announcing the future birth of little Archie, then the arrival of their second child.
Would the gesture of Princess Beatrice be a form of revenge for her younger sister? In any case, it seems far from harmless. Especially since Meghan Markle has always had a complex relationship with the daughters of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. Still, the coincidence did not escape the commentators of the royal family. “Interesting coincidence that the announcement of the royal baby was made on the wedding anniversary of Harry and Meghan,” tweeted Richard Eden, editor for the Daily Mail. A coincidence that will not fail to annoy the main concerned, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
