UK backlash at Meghan's lavish US baby shower

Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan Duchess of Sussex visit Morocco

Meghan returned to the United Kingdom early on Thursday morning (21.02.19) after a £192,016 round trip, which saw her land back at Farnborough Airport, Hampshire.

It said the visit had "prompted a debate about extravagance, style and the environmental impact of crossing the Atlantic in a private jet", including criticism from environmental lobby Friends of the Earth. She added that she didn't care who paid for Markle's baby shower but it was an "absolute outrage" considering the country's poverty and homelessness.

"I've never seen anything like this at a baby shower", she said.

But they chose to add their own twist to the music awards by honouring Meghan and calling her a Melanated Mona - a Black woman leading the way - during America's Black History Month.

What did Meghan get up to in the days leading up to the shower? One thing is for sure, and that is that Meghan Markle certainly knows how to make a statement with what she wears!

Once she'd taken in enough culture for the day Meghan accompanied her pal Abigail Spencer (who played Dana "Scottie" Scott to her Rachel Zane in Suits) to The Cafe Bouludny in The Surrey Hotel in Manhattan's Upper East side for lunch.

Meghan returned to the United Kingdom early on Thursday morning (21.02.19) after a $250,000 round trip, which saw her land back at Farnborough Airport, Hampshire.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, arrives for her baby shower at the Mark Hotel on Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2019, in NY.

Burrell explains that Markle's baby shower and such a parade of "lavish extravagance" will anger William because he has worked so hard to create a line with the press which dictates a boundary of relative privacy. This was the former American actress' first trip back to the United States since she married Prince Harry at Windsor Castle last May.

Following her dinner with Serena Williams and Jessica Mulroney on Tuesday, a whole host of Meghan's famous friends showed up for the shower on Wednesday. The two-story suite also comes with five elegant bedrooms, four fireplaces, six bathrooms, and two powder rooms.

Like Burrell, others have lashed out at Meghan for breaking royal tradition' by having a shower, despite there being no royal protocol regarding the custom. Apparently Serena Williams - who's a big fan of The Mark made the choice of location.
