The Royals will see another break in tradition from Meghan Markle. Once the baby’s born, she plans to not do what sister-in-law Kate Middleton did. Or so the latest reports from across the pond indicate. It looks like the actress turned royal mother-to-be won’t slip into a designer dress or push her feet into high heels just hours after giving birth for the sake of tradition.
A perfect hairdo is not something Meghan Markle intends to strives for in her first hours as a new mom. She’s not going to have makeup applied so she can carry her hours-old infant to waiting cameras. It seems Meghan opts to pass on this ritual. This is a path Kate Middleton and Princess Diana followeds. Each with their prince by their side and decades apart – they greeted the world with their babies on the steps of the hospital.

Meghan Markle: Nixes Meet and Greet With the World
Considering that Meghan opted for a home birth, the hospital steps aren’t an option anyway. But she won’t step out of the house to greet cameras either. While royal followers have known for a while that Meghan Markle and Harry nixed the post-birth pictures, they didn’t know why.
A new report indicates Meghan’s friend said the former American actress felt sorry for Kate Middleton having to get all dolled up with every hair in place after each birthing ordeal. This is not something Meghan wants to do.

Primping Just Hours After Child Birth – Not Her Cup of Tea
It sounds like Meghan knows her limits. It looks like primping hours after the birth of her first child doesn’t appeal to her. Spending that time with Prince Harry and their new baby privately seems a better option. Still, the baby will meet the world in pictures soon enough. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will take some time alone as a family before this happens, according to the report.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have settled into their new 10-bedroom Frogmore Cottage home. This is where Meghan will give birth to the royal couple’s first baby. When she goes into labor, a helicopter will be on the grounds. If needed, transport by helicopter to the hospital is right in her backyard.
Meghan Markle: Helicopter Waits – Just in Case
This week when an ambulance was seen in the vicinity of their cottage, rumors began that Meghan Markle was on the way to the hospital in labor. As veteran royal watchers explain, Meghan would not have gone to the hospital in an ambulance if she needed a transport. That helicopter would have been her ride to the facility.
Meghan Markle is due to have her first baby any day now. Both Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, decided to let the gender of their first born be a surprise. They don’t know if they’ll have a boy or girl. The name Diana is a favorite among Great Britain’s bookmakers. Stay tuned as the Royal baby watch continues.
