Princess Eugenie was left "upset" after Meghan Markle announced she was expecting a baby on the day of her wedding, it has been claimed.
New book Finding Freedom claims Meghan and husband Prince Harry announced the pregnancy at her wedding, leaving Princess Eugenie hurt.
The book reveals the decision to announce the news "did not go down particularly well."
It is reported that friends and family of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were told Meghan was pregnant on October 2018 at St George's chapel.
According to the co-authors of Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand: "A source said (Princess Eugenie) told friends she felt the couple should have waited to share the news".
Prince Harry and Eugenie have been known to be the "closest of friends" in the past.
She was also one of the first to find out about Harry's romance with Meghan.
Finding Freedom claimed: "Eugenie who'd long wanted to see her cousin settle down and be happy, told friends she loved Meghan and thought she was 'just the tonic' for Harry."
The biography also claims Harry and Eugenie were fond of partying together, and went on many nights out.

The pair even "downed shots from Mexican skull-shaped glasses."
Harry and Meghan had even begun going on double dates with Eugenie and her partner Jack Brooksbank.
It was also claimed this week Meghan Markle’ s "flashy" baby shower held by her A-list friends "didn’t go down well with the Palace," according to the explosive book.
The Duchess of Sussex was thrown an elaborate baby shower by pal and tennis ace Serena Williams at New York’s luxurious Mark Hotel.

The book reads: "While the trip had been a hit with Meghan, senior courtiers back in the UK were spitting out their morning tea when they saw her lavish baby shower thrown by friends turn into a media circus with what looked like carefully stage-managed paparazzi walks of the duchess in big black sunglasses from her hotel to her car and a laundry list of inside party details reported by US press.
"Meghan was often criticised for being too Hollywood, meant too flashy.
"Especially for the reserved aesthetic of the monarchy."
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex insist they were not interviewed for the book.
But its authors claim it was written in co-operation with people close to the couple.
A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess said: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom.
"This book is based on the authors' own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting."
