Meghan Markle could announce her second pregnancy before or after Princess Beatrice’s wedding, a netizen claimed.

On Thursday, Buckingham Palace confirmed Princess Beatrice’s engagement to her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. However, not everyone was impressed with the timing of the announcement.

The Duchess of Sussex’s fans threw shade at Princess Beatrice for not waiting for Prince Harry and Markle’s return before she announced her engagement. Some felt that Princess Eugenie’s sister stole Markle’s thunder during her South Africa tour. Thus, one netizen speculated that the duchess would take revenge by making a big announcement in the run-up of Princess Beatrice’s wedding day.

“Betcha Meghan will announce her second pregnancy around Beatrice’s wedding. Hogging the limelight again,” the netizen wrote on Twitter.

“I think your right on that & jmo I think Megan wanted a title so badly she would have done whatever she had to & thought she would go in and change everything to how she wanted it & that didn’t happen all the way down to having to ask for permission,” a different online user agreed.

Meanwhile, some users defended Markle. One said that it’s fine if the Duchess of Sussex would make the announcement around Princess Beatrice’s wedding because she is a senior royal and the Princess of York is just a minor royal.

“Bea is a minor royal, Meg a senior royal. So, if Meghan want to announce a new pregnancy after the wedding of Bea, it’s a question of schedule. It's not the fault from Meg, but from the schedule. Kate announced her pregnancy after the engagement of Meg and Harry,” Markle’s fan commented.

Another online user said that she hoped Princess Beatrice’s dad, Prince Andrew, would not steal the limelight from her because he has been doing it lately. The Duke of York is in hot water due to his connection with Jeffrey Eipstein.

There are rumors claiming that Princess Beatrice has bannedPrince Andrew on her big day. The soon-to-be bride reportedly doesn’t want any drama on her wedding day.

Princess Beatrice’s fans have already responded to Markle’s supporters who questioned the timing of her engagement announcement. One said that Prince Harry and Markle’s tour is part of their job and it’s not a major life event, so it’s not necessary for Princess Beatrice to hold off her engagement announcement just because the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are working in Africa.
