Did Princess Eugenie Inform Prince Harry And Meghan Markle About Her Pregnancy First?
According to royal biographer Ingrid Seward, it is possible for Princess Eugenie to have informed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle about her second pregnancy first. Of course, it goes without saying that her immediate family members, like Prince Andrew, Sarah Ferguson, and Princess Beatrice, were the first to find out that she was expecting.
But outside of her immediate family, Seward said that Prince Harry and Markle could’ve been next in line.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would have been amongst the first to hear the news of Eugenie’s pregnancy. Meghan and Harry are close with Eugenie – and not only has she stayed with them in California, but they have been on holidays together before Harry’s marriage. If the Sussexes come to the coronation in May, there will be an added incentive to see Eugenie as by then it is doubtful if she will want to travel herself,” Seward said (via New Idea).
