Duchess Meghan has responded to criticism over her baby shower.
The royal celebrated the imminent birth of her now six-month-old son Archie back in February with a lavish baby shower in New York surrounded by close friends and loved ones.
However, the Duchess has since received criticism over the party with claims that she splashed out an eye-watering $300,000 (around £232,000) on the event.
Critics also accused the mum-of-one of intentionally leaving her mother Doria Ragland off the guestlist for the special occasion.
However, the Duchess has now responded to the claims in court papers that were filed on Friday by her lawyers, where they revealed previously unknown details about the event.
“The suggestion that the Claimant (Meghan) deliberately left out her mother from her baby shower and ditched her in favour of her famous friends is untrue and offensive to her,” said Meghan’s lawyers, accordinf to HELLO! Magazine.
“The Claimant’s mother was of course invited, and the Claimant also offered to buy her airline tickets. However, her mother was unable to attend due to work commitments.
