‘She’s such an actress’
Meghan Markle is getting heat from all sides – from her father’s explosive interviews to rumored feud with sister-in-law Kate Middleton. Now people are accusing her of being fake and acting too much. The Duchess is pregnant with her first child and she was heavily criticized for cupping her belly too much. Some people on social media called it overly posed, smug and a desperate attention seeking move.
On Monday the mom-to-be made an unannounced appearance at the annual British Fashion Awards and shocked everyone because no one was expecting it. She was there to give Clare Waight Keller, the artistic director of Givenchy – the British Womenswear Designer of the Year award. This is the same designer that made her iconic wedding dress.
Elaine “Lainey” Lui, who is the founder and Editor of LaineyGossip.com, co-host of CTV’s daytime talk show “The Social”, wrote in her most recent post that she called Meghan’s constant belly touching “obnoxious belly-cupping”. She wrote: “I thought the belly-cupping during the royal tour in Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand was extra. Turns out, for Meghan Markle, that was simply entry-level belly-cupping. Last night at the British Fashion Awards, Royal Meghan took it beyond extra to extreme.”
People on social media compared her to actress Demi Moore, who famously cradled her baby bump in the nude, among other negative remarks. Scroll down to see some of them.
We know she’s pregnant. I have never in my life seen any pregnant woman hold their stomach so often. Is she afraid the baby is going to fall out? It just looks awkward. We all know she’s pregnant, she doesn’t have to draw attention to it ALL of the time.
