Meghan Markle got 'stern telling-off' for her pregnancy outfits, claims new book

Meghan Markle's pregnancy style was widely praised by fashion experts and well-wishers around the world.

Unlike many royals before her, she opted for looks which really showed off her beautiful growing bump, and she was glowing at every engagement she attended while waiting for little Archie to arrive.

However a new book has claimed that not everybody was so impressed by her maternity wardrobe, and says some of her looks earned her a "stern telling off".

In their book Royals at War, investigative journalists Dylan Howard and Andy Tillett wrote: "There were considerable rumblings over Meghan’s appearance.

"In the early days of the pregnancy, insiders said that Meghan had earned a stern telling-off."

However Meghan's fashionable look didn't come cheap, and the Duchess' maternity wardrobe - featuring 75 outfits - reportedly cost Sh48 million (£362,895).

While there were a couple of high street items showcased, for the most part, Meghan's maternity wear was high-end - and had the price tag to match.

According to lovethesales.com Meghan's top brands during her pregnancy have been Aquazzura, Givenchy, Stuart Weitzman and Outland Denim.

This figure is said to be seven times the amount the Duchess of Cambridge spent on her pregnancy wardrobe.

However it's believed the tax paying public do NOT foot her and Kate's clothes bill.

As well as having wealth in her own right, Meghan's wardrobe will also be paid for out of a privy income provided by Prince Charles' Duchy of Cornwall.

In the book, which is released later this month, Howard and Tillett also claim that Meghan's pregnancy announcement raised a few eyebrows, and reportedly left Harry "embarrassed".

The couple told the world they were expecting their first child on the eve of their royal tour of Australia and New Zealand, but shared the happy news with close family at Harry's cousin's wedding a few days before.

They claim that it left the Duke of Sussex "embarrassed", and Princess Eugenie and her mum Sarah Ferguson "furious".

They write: "Meghan put her foot in it when she decided that it would be the ideal moment to announce that she and Harry were expecting their first child.

"This was a huge social gaffe, even if you were not a Royal – stealing the limelight from Eugenie, who was furious, as was her mother, Sarah."
