In a seemingly classless and utterly self-serving move, Meghan Markle announced her pregnancy to the Royal Family at Princess Eugenie’s wedding, totally upstaging the bride. The Duchess’ shameless ploy for attention just backfired majorly, though, as she has received some truly awful news for her.

Meghan Markle’s decision to break the news about her pregnancy on Friday shocked the Royal Family, leaving Princess Eugenie allegedly upset and Eugenie’s mom, Sarah Ferguson, supposedly furious that the former American actress would go to such lengths to steal the attention on the most special day of her daughter’s life.

It should have been enough for Meghan that her own wedding was much larger and more lavish than Eugenie’s and viewed by millions of people more, but the 37-year-old just had to twist the knife.

“Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been accused of ‘stealing Princess Eugenie’s spotlight’ after breaking their baby news – at her wedding,” reported Mirror. “The couple reportedly told the Queen and other members of the Royal Family at the lavish ceremony at Windsor Castle on Friday that they were expecting their first child. Now, some fans have taken to social media to criticize the timing of the announcement, given it was 28-year-old Eugenie’s special day.”

With Meghan having blurted out her pregnancy news at such a seemingly inappropriate time, Kensington Palace was left with no choice but to make an official announcement in short order, before tabloids got ahold of the story first.

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019,” the Palace stated in an official release. “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”

With Meghan and Harry about to embark on a foreign tour, the Duchess wasn’t going to be able to obscure her growing baby bump for very much longer. However, she certainly did not need to wait until the day of Eugenie’s wedding to share the news. This definitely seems to be a calculated plan by the expectant mother to steal Eugenie’s thunder, and it didn’t go unnoticed by many royal watchers who took to social media to air their frustrations with the seemingly jealous Duchess.

It appears that Meghan’s plot to upstage Eugenie’s wedding with her baby news has backfired, however, because of a little phenomenon called karma. While Meghan was gushing about her pregnancy, Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa was on her way to the hospital, and she announced that she was the proud mother of a healthy baby boy who had been born in the very same maternity ward as her sister’s three royal children.

Pippa Middleton has become a mother for the first time after giving birth to a baby boy weighing 8lb and 9oz. The 35-year-old was seen entering the private maternity ward yesterday at 10.30am ahead of her husband James Matthews and she gave birth just over three hours later, at 1.58pm.

Her baby was delivered at the £7,500-a-night Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, the same private maternity unit where her older sister, the Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to her three children. The little boy is the cousin of future King Prince George, five, his brother Prince Louis, five months, and their sister Princess Charlotte, three. This afternoon William and Kate said they were ‘thrilled’ for the new parents.

Mr Matthews was seen running up the steps into the hospital shortly after 10am this morning, carrying a duffle bag and seemingly in the same clothes he wore on Monday. The couple went to the hospital just hours after Prince Harry – her sister Kate’s brother-in-law – announced he and wife Meghan Markle are set to have their first baby next Spring.

Clearly, Meghan Markle was hoping to monopolize the headlines with her baby news, but it appears as though Pippa Middleton’s brand new bundle of joy has put a serious damper on those plans. This was no doubt bad news for the former Suits star and newest Royal, who seems to love when the headlines are all about her. But, apparently, karma even comes for the Royals.
