Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been getting flak from not just the British public, but often times from members of the royal household as well.
A similar incident was brought to light by royal expert Emily Andrews who recalled how Prince Andrew had once taken a brutal swipe at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex by comparing their wedding to that of his daughter, Princess Eugenie.
In Channel 5’s documentary titled Beatrice and Eugenie: Pampered Princesses? the expert revealed the subtle jibe at the former royals and kept his daughter high above Meghan.
The Duke of York, said during an interview: “There will be a few more people than most people have. There are a few more than Harry had but that is the nature of Eugenie and Jack. They have got so many friends that they need a church of that size to fit them all in.”
Royal expert Ms. Andrews vividly remembers wincing at Prince Andrew’s cringe-worthy comment. “Our wedding is bigger than your wedding.”
The royal expert added that Prince Andrew had originally asked the BBC if they would telecast Princess Eugenie’s wedding. Ms. Andrews said: “His people asked the BBC whether they would televise it and the BBC said no.”
Reports claim that Prince Andrew’s effort to have a grandeur wedding for his daughter was to signal the general public that Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie stand equally with the full-time royal family.
A senior journalist reported: “I think this was his opportunity to really show them off not just to the country but to the world and say my daughters are absolutely up there with William and Harry.”
