Meghan Markle has kept details about her birthing plan quiet and has announced alongside husband Prince Harry she will take time to "celebrate privately" the arrival of the royal baby. The Duchess of Sussex has also signalled she will not take part in a photocall immediately after the birth of her first child, breaking a tradition Princess Diana established when Prince William was born in 1984. Royal commentator Bonnie Greer praised Meghan for her decision, claiming she will help other new mothers to avoid the pressure of looking put together shortly after delivering their children.
Speaking to CNN, Ms Greer said: "Women won’t feel the pressure to look like they’re ready for the cover of Vogue after they’ve given birth.
"Meghan is leading the way with that. It’s great."
Princess Diana established the tradition of introducing royal babies to the world when she walked out of the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in London carrying both Prince William and Prince Harry hours after delivery. Kate, Duchess of Cambridge followed in her footsteps with all three of her children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
Kate however is believed to have sparked fury among women after appearing donning a new dress and sporting a faint layer of make-up as she flawlessly left the hospital after delivering her first child, Prince George.
