Royal experts say that Buckingham Palace's decision to announce Princess Beatrice's pregnancy on the same day as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's third wedding anniversary suggests that they are now 'irrelevant'.

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe tells OK! "It's a bizarre decision by the palace to have a clash as the royal diary is meticulously planned out and births, deaths and marriages have a lot of consideration and planning with the announcements. Palace officials will take into consideration the news and what is being talked about.

"This is no mistake. The fact that they decided to announced Princess Beatrice's baby news on the same day as Prince Harry andMeghan Markle's anniversary seems to say something. I'm not saying it's the palace waging a war but it seems to show that the couple are certainly irrelevant to them in terms of diary clashes."

While Beatrice is known to be close to her cousin Harry, the timing of her pregnancy announcement is sure to raise eyebrows.

It comes over Harry and Meghan were famously reported to have caused consternation by revealing the news of their first pregnancy at the wedding of Beatrice's sister Eugenie.

Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi revealed they are expecting their first child together via The Royal Family Instagram account on Wednesday.

Alongside a picture of the pair on their wedding day, the message read: "Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in autumn of this year.

"The Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news."

The pair tied the knot in a small ceremony in July 2020 after the pandemic forced them to de-scale on the size of their wedding.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry has raised eyebrows amongst the royal family recently with his comments about his father Prince Charles' parenting.

The Duke of Sussex explained that he uprooted his life halfway across the world to "break the cycle" of "pain and suffering" that's been passed down in his family while speaking on Dex Shepherd's Armchair Expert podcast to promote his Apple TV+ series with Oprah Winfrey, called The Me You Can't See.

The 36 year old, who is expecting his second child, a baby girl, with the Duchess, was asked if he would raise his two kids in the "opposite direction" of how his own father Prince Charles, 72, brought him up during the intimate chat.

"Isn't life about breaking the cycle?" the royal responded before insisting there's no need to "blame anyone" but he himself has "experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered."

Speaking on his own upbringing, he went on to explain how he "never saw it" or "knew about it" and then he began to figure out where his father went to school, what happened to him, all the experiences he went through personally and how it's "connected to his parents," the Queen and the late Prince Philip.

"So he was treating me the way he was treated, which means how can I change that for my own kids? Well here I am, I've now moved my whole family to the US – that wasn't the plan!" he added.
