5 Times Meghan Markle Was Too ‘South Delhi’ For Her Royal Family

Meghan Markle: If the Duchess of Sussex had a South Delhi Girl Squad

The Duchess of Sussex

If there’s one rule in the unwritten rule book of being a British Royal, it’s this — a British royal never flaunts their wealth.

Yes, a British Royal never shows off their expensive handbags and yacht holidays. Instead, they let the glint of their smile do all the talking. So, when Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, had her $200,000 baby shower in New York, the tabloids were abuzz with yet another royal celebration!


You see, British Royalty see themselves as no ‘ordinary’ celebrities, and so they apparently found Meghan Markle’s baby shower smacking too much of ‘celebrity’ rather than ‘Royalty’.

But here’s what we want to tell the Royals, “Relax guys!” If you think she overdid it, then you need to look at us desi South Delhi royalty to know that Meghan’s lifestyle is SO NOT what real “showing off” looks like.

Starting with her ‘airport looks’, here’s what apna South Delhi thought of Meghan’s recent outing.

“Meghan, I know you are classy and all, but I wear more bling to my gym!  And that cap is just so basic babe. Here’s Manish Malhotra’s number, please ping him, he’s just done this really cute preppy beret with like a hint of diamante! You’ll totally love it.”
‘’Bubbly Bhatia” 37
“Cute cookies Megs, but I’m on Keto. Also, why no video of the invite being un-boxed? I mean you did have a music box invitation with embossed initials right?”
“Rangeeli Rathore” 47
“Loving the look Meghan, but why no choker? Aren’t you going for the Audrey Hepburn look? Channel those Hollywood roots babe! Oh, BTW, my family jeweller has a store in London too!”
“Blingy Kapoor” 55.
“Gosh, Megs, why would you get flower arrangements from the local farmer’s market?  Looks too ‘Little house on the Prairie’ don’t you think? I mean it’s quaint , but I toh have sent my event manager to Italy to fetch something more exotic for our anniversary. Anyway, to each their own.”

And finally for all those royalists who were too shocked last year to find that Meghan could actually close her own car door, you are not alone. All of Jaguar-owning-South Delhi is still agog.

Wow babes, you are so strong and independent. I mean, my Jagz’ doors are too heavy to close, so Rahul bhayya obvs does it for me! Can I have your trainer’s number? Is he free at like 9 AM or is that your slot?  Desperately need to pump those ‘ceps to open and shut that damn Jaguar door! 
“Hira Mehta”, 33.
