United Kingdom backlash at Meghan Markle's lavish USA baby shower

The Duke And Duchess Of Sussex Visit Morocco

The Duke And Duchess Of Sussex Visit Morocco

The North African trip is expected to be the last one overseas for Meghan before their baby is born in the spring. They brought in somebody to explain how to arrange flowers. Bucking royal traditions, the mum-to-be's lavish celebrations in NY are said to have cost more than $731,000 - and have reportedly ruffled royal feathers back at the Palace, with Prince William in particular. "It's a different culture".

The Queen's move was considered a desperate bid to save the embattled Windsors from the unprecedented public backlash they have faced due to Markle "recklessly toying with the Royal Family's reputation".

Can't get enough of PEOPLE's Royals coverage?

Insiders have denied the feud rumors and insist that Markle's trip to NY offered her time to catch up with some old friends, many of whom she will not see until after the baby is born.

"We've been brainwashed to see them having a humble life, on vacation in the rain in Scotland".

Colman gave a nod to her fellow nominee, admitting she wished Close took home the big prize. I used to work as a cleaner I used to love that job.

"I mentioned the possibility of her doing movies and Hollywood, but it wasn't her thing". "Some British people might feel it is a bit flash, but it's just that we are not used to seeing them acting like celebrities". And he warns that her recent adventure signals a risky blurring of lines between royalty and celebrity, claiming "Meghan doesn't know the difference".

Animal-lover Meghan was eager to say hello with she and Harry seen petting the horses ahead of their tour of the equine centre. And he has discussed why she needs to "knuckle down and toe the royal line".

The party, hosted at Manhattan's Mark Hotel by Serena Williams and attended by other high-profile figures, including Amal Clooney, saw guests serenaded by a harpist and given expensive gifts, they reported. Markle adores Rubirosa, the pizza spot on Mulberry Street, Hinata for ramen, and of course Chef Jean George Vongerichten's French eatery which overlooks Central Park.

The appearance rounded off a busy second day of engagements, which saw Harry, 34, and Meghan travel to the town of Ansi in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains to visit a secondary school and meet pupils.
