Meghan Markle refused to follow the royal baby tradition that Princess Diana and Kate Middleton have practiced.

The Duchess of Sussex will not be making a public debut for her baby at the Lindo Wing. Prince Harry and Markle have announced that they will keep their birth plans a secret and many believe that the pregnant royal might follow Queen Elizabeth II and give birth at home.

According to Sara Nathan, a journalist of Page Six, Markle actually “felt sorry” for her sister-in-law, Middleton, for having to pose for baby photos in high heels and dress just hours after giving birth to her kids. The Duchess of Cambridge had a quick recovery for all of her three children and was already out of the hospital just hours after giving birth to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

According to Markle’s friends, she might have felt that way for Middleton because she doesn’t want the fuss of having to put on a show and dress up with impeccable hair and makeup immediately after her delivery.

An insider revealed earlier that Markle is an “anxious mom.” At her age, she’s nervous about the possible complications when she gives birth to her firstborn. She’s also very upfront that she doesn’t want to be pressured to “look immaculate on the hospital steps just hours later.”

Middleton’s third baby debut was filled with controversy when a number of moms reacted negatively to the Duchess of Cambridge’s “pristine” and “immaculate” look when she made a public debut for Prince Louis. While many were inspired by how she was able to look that good just hours after giving birth, some slammed the duchess for giving new moms the wrong expectations.

According to radio host Meshel Laurie, Prince William’s wife is giving an “unrealistic message” and it’s not inspiring. A number of moms also shared photos of how they looked when they left the hospital after their delivery and although they wanted to look as good as Middleton, in reality, they didn’t.

However, while others slammed Middleton for her looks, Markle’s close pal Serena Williams praised the duchess. In fact, the tennis player considered the Duchess of Cambridge the toughest woman she knows for putting makeup on and facing the public just hours after giving birth.
