The Reason Behind Princess Kate's Absence at Meghan Markle's Baby Shower

February 20, 2019Feb 20, 2019

Earlier this week, mom-to-be Meghan Markle flew to New York City in order to attend her baby shower thrown by close friends. Reportedly, by doing so, Markle broke royal protocol.

Many A-list celebrities were in attendance at the celebration such as Amal Clooney, Priyanka Chopra, Sarah Rafferty, Abigail Spencer, Serena Williams, and Jessica Mulroney. However, noticeably missing from the event was her sister-in-law Kate Middleton.

While some may speculate as to why Princess Kate was not at the shower, the main reason may be due to the fact that it is not part of the royal protocol.

Reportedly, Princess Kate didn't have a baby shower with any of her three children. ABC News royal expert Victoria Arbiter explained that "added pressure that they are clearly very wealthy, and a lavish baby shower would be seen as highly inappropriate. There's nothing they can't go out and buy themselves."  

Some reports suggest that Kate and Meghan are not very close as friends or have even been feuding. However, reps for the Royals have adamantly denied those claims.
