Pregnant Meghan Markle is reportedly planning a second baby shower just weeks after her lavish New York bash.

According to the Mail On Sunday, Meghan's next baby shower might be held at Buckingham Palace, with her mother Doria Ragland and about six of her BFFs, including Victoria Beckham, expected to attend.

The move is sparking controversy after Meghan, 37, has already been dubbed the diva Duchess.

Her elaborate, star-studded baby shower in NYC was slammed for reportedly costing six figures in U.S. dollars.

Critics blasted Meghan for taking a private jet to the Big Apple for the glam event at the Mark Hotel in a $150,000 suite on February 19, 2019.

Back then, such famous Meghan pals as Natalie Portman, Abigail Spencer, and Amal Clooney feted her as she expects her first child with Harry. Later that same day, Serena Williams and other Meghan intimates dined with her at NY's Polo Bar.

Now, a source has said Meghan plans another shower in England: "It will be a small gathering of five or six people."

Meghan first hoped to host the event at Frogmore Cottage at Windsor where she and Prince Harry are moving.

However, the renovation isn't complete, so Buckingham Palace might be the second shower site.

Meghan's haters believe she needs to get over herself, and have noted that baby showers have never been a British tradition.

Royal watchers have claimed that the former Suits actress' first shower featured such luxuries as four macaron towers from Laduree, which cost a total of $460, a two-tiered cake by pricey event designer Darcy Miller, harp player Erin Hill at $625, and $400 in roses.

Other shower costs added up fast and royal protection officers for the trip cost almost $15,000.

Meghan's entire New York experience reportedly cost a whopping $503,000.

But Prince Harry apparently loves to indulge his bride. Royal biographer Robert Jobson claimed in his book Charles at 70: Thoughts, Hopes and Dreams that before the wedding, Harry raised his voice and yelled, "What Meghan wants, she gets!"

Meghan currently looks ready to pop and is on a break from royal duties with the baby due in April.
