REVEALED: Why Meghan Markle is urged to skip Royal baby photo embraced by Kate Middleton – Express

, 37, and , 34, announced they were expecting their first child last October. Californian-born Meghan has shaken up the Royal Family since marrying Harry last May and has to navigate Royal rules and British etiquette in her new position. Now she has been urged to “skip the pomp” of a baby parade by a prominent mother-of-three.

Chelsea Hirschhorn, CEO of parenting brand Fridababy, penned a New York Times letter to Meghan urging her to drop the traditional postpartum shoot.

In the full page ad, titled ‘An Open Letter to the Royal Mom-To-Be’, the company boss wrote: “You will soon give birth to one of the most anticipated babies in the world.

“And like your princess predecessors, you’ll be expected to parade outside of the hospital in front of throngs of photographers to show off your new bundle of joy shortly after giving birth.

“You’ll smile, you’ll wave, you’ll be radiant, but between your legs will be a whole different story.

“Sure your blowout will be perfect for your hospital step photo-op, but people will be opening on all the wrong things – like how soon you will fit into your pre-baby wardrobe – instead of having an honest conversation about what women go through during birth and immediately after.

“But us mums will know that while you wave from that step you’ll be one pair of mesh underwear away from your first post-baby poop (brace yourself)!”

The Florida resident added if Meghan could not avoid the pictures, she should pull a move to “keep it real” for mothers everywhere.

She wrote: “If you really can’t skip it, then at the very least flash us a glimpse of the mesh underwear underneath to keep it real.”
