If and when Meghan Markle were to become pregnant, there is one pregnancy tradition the newly minted Duchess of Sussex will not be allowed to take part in.
According to The Sun, the new royal will not be allowed to have a traditional baby shower.
Should Prince Harry and his new bride decide to have children, the 36-year-old former Suits star will have to five the pre-birth party a miss, and it's all because of royal tradition.
Royal expert Victoria Arbiter claims throwing an elaborate baby shower is 'unheard of' for members of the British royal family.
While the royals are 'very wealthy…a lavish baby shower would be seen as highly inappropriate…there’s nothing they can’t go out and buy themselves.'
Baby showers are not as hugely popular a tradition in the UK as they are in Meghan's native country, where the average American reportedly spends between $250-$1300 per shower.
Despite the fact she won't be allowed to host a royal baby shower, Meghan will be allowed to accept gifts from friends and family.
