Meghan Markle slammed for releasing an old video on Cambridge’s wedding anniversary
The Duchess of Sussex released a clip from a video call for Smart Works. In the video, Markle is giving a young woman tips on how to prepare for a job interview.
There is nothing wrong with the video, but many questioned the timing. According to Hello! Magazine, the video call happened in March. So, the royals fans were irked that it was released on Prince William and Middleton’s ninth wedding anniversary.
One critic said that Markle’s move was “predictable” and she was not even annoyed because it was what she expected. The netizen also called Markle “pathetic” and compared her to a “petulant child.”
Oh come on! She filmed this in MARCH & released it on the Cambridge’s Wedding anniversary!? It’s beyond predictable and I’m not even annoyed as it’s so obvious and pathetic at this point. Behaving like a petulant child. https://t.co/re5r6pxBeX

Seriously….she’s so predictable. It’s beyond petty at this point. This is mental illness. She needs help.

Meanwhile, some said that the move was “typical” of Markle because she’s jealous of Middleton. A different online user called the duchess “pathetic” for the way she celebrated the future king and queen’s marriage milestone.
So typical. Can she be anymore jealous of Kate?

Every time you think oh no it's just a coincidence in regards to a certain date she clashes with, another "hey it's me again " post gets thrust out.. its getting very boring now.

Meghan Markle allegedly stole Princess Eugenie’s thunder with a pregnancy announcement
It wasn’t the first time Markle was accused of stealing another royal’s thunder. According to previous reports, she did the same during Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding.
Prince Harry and Markle reportedly told guests that they were expecting. However, they only made the news official when they announced it to the public during their tour in Australia.
Due to the alleged incident, several netizens also criticized the duchess. According to them, Markle stole the bride’s thunder.
Talk about stealing Eugenie's thunder. Awkward. #royalbaby.

The only thing I will say about the announcement about Harry and Meghan's imminent baby is that it seems a little horrid that they told the family at Eugenie's wedding on Friday.

In February, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were also accused of stealing the limelight from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when their royal diary clashed. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attended an event while Prince William and Middleton were still on their royal tour in Ireland.
The Sussexes also did the same when the Cambridges were in Pakistan. Royal fans were disappointed because they grabbed the headlines when they released the clips from their documentary while Prince William and Kate Middleton were wrapping up their tour.
