Meghan has been attacked for the lavish baby shower she held in New York this week. Guests reportedly received presents of £445 suitcases while attending the bash at the £57,000-a-night hotel suite in The Mark hotel. Her elaborate five-day trip to New York was “widely perceived as an exhibition of extravagance at a time of national hardship” according to the royal biographer, Angela Levin.
Kensington Palace’s social media account received large amounts of criticism for the private event.
Ms Levin explained she fears for Harry since the Duchess of Sussex is reckless with her own reputation.
Harry previously insisted to Ms Levin that he had no interest in becoming a celebrity and instead “wanted to be taken seriously for his contribution into public life”.
Ms Levin wrote in the Mail on Sunday that it is “more telling” Harry stayed at home and handed out food to children while Meghan partied.

Ms Levin continued to question how Meghan can fit her luxury lifestyle with her patronage of Smart Works.
Meghan was granted patronage by the Queen for Smart Works which uses donated clothes to help vulnerable and long-term unemployed women find jobs.
The biographer highlighted that Meghan then met with the charity’s clients in an outfit that cost £5,600.
Ms Levin said: “She seems to lack respect for ways of behaving that go back generations.
“There are times, too, when she seems unwilling to listen, preferring instead to press her own views home.
“Being royal comes with duties and obligations quite different from those of Hollywood.
“Yet I am not so sure this is something she accepts, unlike her husband.”
Ms Levin added that Harry needs to contradict his wife.
She said: “While congratulating Meghan on the many things she has accomplished, Harry must also explain in clear terms what she is getting so wrong.”
