The things you have to miss out on when you're a pregnant royal!

Meghan Markle reportedly sent a touching apology to her high school classmates for not being able to attend their 20-year high school reunion because she was still pregnant with baby boy Archie and on the verge of giving birth.

According to the Daily Mail, the Duchess of Sussex missed her high school reunion since it was being held the day before she gave birth to her son Archie. In an envelope marked 'Kensington Palace', Meghan sent a letter to the reunion of the class of 1999 of her all-girls Catholic school in Los Angeles, apologizing for not being there.

According to reports, the reunion was attended by a total of 37 women who graduated Immaculate Heart High School in 1999, out of a class of more than 50. Meghan's school friends, who were extremely excited about the Duchess' newborn baby boy, were buzzing with delight upon receiving the letter, which arrived on Kensington Palace stationery. 

"Everyone was disappointed that they did not get to catch up with Meghan given everything that has happened to her," said one former friend. "But the whole group was super excited about her giving birth to the first British-American prince, it was all anyone talked about."

"They were so excited to get that letter from her. She is remembered as someone who is very thoughtful, and to get that kind of attention now that she is a Royal went down really well. Hopefully, she will be able to make it to the 25-year reunion and she is welcome to bring Harry and Archie along with her."

The reunion for the class of 1999 and other classes from years ending in 4 and 9, was held on Sunday, May 5.

The very next day, on May 6, it was revealed that Meghan had given birth to a wonderful baby boy at 5.26am in London, with the newborn weighing in at 7lbs 3 ounces.

As soon as news of Meghan's baby boy reached her fellow high school classmates and the school, they all joined in on the celebrations by posting congratulations to their most famous alumni and her husband on its Facebook page. "The school community extends best wishes of happiness to the Royal Family on this joyous event!" the message said.

Reports say that the Duchess of Sussex attended middle school and high school at Immaculate Heart in Los Feliz, whose former list of graduates includes other famous personalities like Mary Tyler Moore, Tyra Banks and Walt Disney's daughter Diane. The school, which has close showbusiness links, reportedly costs $16,850 a year now, a fee which Meghan's estranged father Thomas Markle said he "happily" paid for in the past.
