Royal pregnancies are quite tricky. When a married female royal is not yet pregnant, she will be bombarded with questions about when she will be expecting. But, if one of them is actually pregnant, she still receives backlash for it.
Just take Meghan Markle, for example. She got pregnant around three months after she and Prince Harry tied the knot last year, and royal fans are claiming that it happened a little too soon.
On the online forum site Quora, a lot of royal fans shared their negative reactions about Meghan Markle getting pregnant so quickly. Some said that she should have waited at least a year after their wedding to have a baby.
“For me, I was initially put off by the news of Meghan Markle’s pregnancy,” one wrote. “It was only a short time ago that Markle and Harry got married; compounded by hearing about them every waking second in the news, I was still getting accustomed to them functioning as a royal couple. Ideally, I would have liked for them to have waited a year before having a family because they still need time to get to know one another.”
It has been claimed numerous times that Meghan Markle likes the attention, given the fact that her previous job was a Hollywood actress. Many believed that she got pregnant right away because it would give her even more exposure after the wedding.
But, Meghan Markle did receive some support on the comments section, with others saying that there are far more problems in the world for people to be angry about Meghan Markle getting pregnant so soon. “There are over 7 billion people in this world and I frankly doubt many really care about whether these two are having a baby,” one said. She, then, added that what most people are upset about is not because the Duchess of Sussex didn’t wait long to have a baby, but because Prince Harry chose her as his wife.
“It really boils down to who Harry married in the first place. Some people are just angry because Meghan looks different and married the most eligible bachelor in the world who turned out to be the son of the ‘beloved’ Princess Diana,” the fan continued. “No one saw this coming to see Prince Harry marrying someone who was clearly not from British aristocracy nor from his ‘inner circle of friends’ but a bi-racial woman, divorced and American.”
