We all know the staffers at Buckingham Palace go into cardiac arrest when Duchess Meghan does EVIL and the CRUELEST of things like send emails at dawn and wear dark nail polish, so when she had a star-studded lavish New York City baby shower – something not exactly common in England let alone with the royal family – it was only a matter of time before someone started clucking the tongue about how she really set back the forward-thinking ways of a country that somehow thinks holding onto a royal family is a good idea to spend tax dollars. THE QUEEN’s former spokesperson, Dickie Arbiter, at least had the cajones to go on the record publicly and say he thought the baby shower was over the top.
Us Weekly said Dickie mainly had a problem with how much the whole thing cost to send Meghan to the Big Apple for a few days:
“Baby showers, it’s very much an American thing. We don’t do it here in the U.K. It was a bit over the top in terms of expense and the way she got there.”
That’s why they did it in New York and not at Harrod’s – people like you would have fainted over diaper trees and storks! You can tell Dickie really thinks a baby shower is basically 2019’s version of TQ’s uncle abdicating the throne and running off with Wallis Simpson because, presumably through gritted teeth, he addressed the rumors that Meghan might also be getting a British baby shower with Prince Harry:
“That’s something they have to answer. Meghan is American and she does things the American way.”
A different source indicated Duchess Kate is going to host “some sort of baby-centric event” in England for Meghan, and that snitch then tailspun about how it might not actually be a “shower.” LAWD, what is it with these people calling it a shower? Is “shower” the Queen’s English for “fuck you” or something? I
t is nice that Kate is throwing whatever the fuck it is they call it for Meghan. I’m sure that totally came about with her first event with Grammy Lizzy, who said, “If you want to see a second one of these – and the GOOD royal jewels – you’ll do me a solid and throw briefcase girl one of those things so she quits her bitching.” Then they laughed and went back to their regularly scheduled programming of prank calling Duchess Camilla to see if she wants to be a judge on The X Factor.
