Royal Fans Defend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Pregnancy Announcement after Backlash
Fans and lovers of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confidently taken to social media to defend the couple's pregnancy news after critics pointed out that the exciting news was shared at the wrong time.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently announced that they are expecting their second child together, and as expected, this had stirred up several reactions from internet users.
While the news has mostly been met with positive reactions, some critics have pointed out that the couple's pregnancy announcement came at the wrong time, considering Harry's cousin, Princess Eugenie is yet to announce her newborn's name.
One user implied that the Sussex royals deliberately announced they were expecting a second baby to draw attention away from Eugenie. Another user sharing similar sentiments suggested that the couple should have waited until after Eugenie announced her newborn's name.
The user also pointed out that the couple's decision to make their announcement might have been because they want it to coincide with the date Princess Diana announced she was pregnant with Harry.
1. This was going to happen as soon as Eugenie announced she was pregnant 2. Does anyone find it weird she has done this to Eugenie TWICE NOW. WAKE UP PEOPLE THERE IS A LINK #MeghanAndHarry #MeghanMarkle— Katie Anne (@Littlemisskate4) February 15, 2021
Seeing the backlash against Harry and Markle, their fans rose to defend them, with many stating that they were excited about the news. One user said she was confused about why the couple was facing so much criticism simply because they shared their pregnancy news.
The reactions surrounding Harry and Markle's announcement come as no surprise as the couple had equally stirred up internet users in 2018.

Another fan wrote that hearing Markle was pregnant again made her very happy and described the day the couple made their announcement as the best of her life.
Another user described the attacks against the couple as sad, while another concerned Twitter user said the backlash was cruel, seeing that Markle had only recently suffered a miscarriage.
Harry and Meghan announce they are pregnant and twitter has a breakdown saying they asked for privacy. Could you imagine if they didn't announce? The paparazzi fighting to get 'the shot' let them do stuff on their terms like we all do #MeghanMarkle— Hannah (@Thisgirl862969) February 15, 2021
The Duke and Duchess debuted their pregnancy with a stunning black-and-white photo that captures Harry sweetly looking at Markle as she cradled her burgeoning baby bump.
Despite stepping down from royal duties last year, the couple made sure to share the exciting news with the entire royal family, and according to sources, the Queen, Prince Phillip, and Prince Charles are incredibly pleased.
The reactions surrounding Harry and Markle's announcement come as no surprise as the couple had equally stirred up internet users in 2018 after announcing they were expecting their first child.
However, despite what critics might say, it goes without saying that Harry and Markle are over the moon about their newest addition. This is undoubtedly a great period for the beautiful couple!
