Oh baby! Roy­ally up­staged

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE - ANNE MARIE SCANLON

It may be sex­ist and old-fash­ioned but ev­ery­one knows a wed­ding is the bride’s big day. The rule about not wear­ing white is short­hand for ‘do not up­stage the bride’. Poor Princess Eu­ge­nie, a sen­tence we thought we’d never say here at Peo­ple Are Talk­ing. Her big day was fraught with dif­fi­cul­ties. No telly com­pany wanted to broad­cast her vows and the Bri­tish pub­lic moaned about their taxes go­ing to­wards the young York’s nup­tials.

Even the weather con­spired against the princess, who wanted to em­u­late Harry and Meghan’s tri­umphal ride around Wind­sor in an open coach — high winds dic­tated a cov­ered coach and cur­tailed route. But all of that was noth­ing com­pared to the ‘Right Royal Up­stag­ing’ by Harry and Meghan, who stole all the lime­light by an­nounc­ing they are hav­ing a baby. At the do! Talk about wear­ing white — Meghan prob­a­bly would have turned up in her own wed­ding dress if it still fit­ted around the waist.
