Meghan Markle news: Asked NOT to take pictures outside hospital like Kate Middleton and Di

Meghan Markle is soon to have her first child, a baby with Prince Harry, 34.

The pair married in May and are no doubt thrilled at the prospect of adding to their family.

However, one royal fan has asked Meghan to miss out on a photo opportunity that has become somewhat of tradition.

Chelsea Hirschhorn is the CEO of Fridababy took out a full page advert in the New York Times to pen a letter to the Duchess.

She urged Meghan not to pose outside of the hospital where she gives birth, as has become somewhat of a tradition for royal mums.

Princess Diana began it when she gave birth to Prince William at St Mary’s in Paddington, London.

Kate Middleton followed in her footsteps, choosing the same maternity ward, posing for similar pictures and even appearing to copy Diana’s outfits.

Chelsea feels strongly that US-born Meghan should be the one to put an end to the trend.

She wrote in her letter: “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.”

Chelsea urged Meghan to partake in the photography session but to have a “honest conversation about what women go through during birth and immediately after.”

She addressed some of the more delicate problems women experience after going through childbirth, adding: “Spoiler alert: Bringing a new life into the world usually starts with your vagina, and the aftermath is a mess.

“The bleeding and swelling will linger, peeing will burn, and sitting like your old self will feel like a herculean feat.”

However, it is likely that Meghan will greet the public looking chic and put together, much like Kate Middleton always does.

The Duchess of Sussex has not spoken out about her pregnancy, her birthing plan or how she will tackle motherhood, leaving fans to guess how the former-actress will adapt to the new role.

However, some have suggested Meghan Markle’s birth will follow a “natural” plan. 

A source told New Magazine: “Meghan is determined it will be a totally natural experience and she’s insisting absolutely no pain relief.

“She’s practising a series of yoga labour coping techniques that mainly focus around breathing patterns and also chanting in rhythm to overcome pain.”

When is Meghan Markle’s due date? The latest odds have been released. With the due date of the baby fast approaching, the odds of the child being born on Easter Sunday – and sharing a birthday with the Queen – have been revealed. 

According to the bookmakers Coral, the probability the baby will be born on Easter Sunday stand at 10-1.

The odds of this have been slashed from 25-1.

Coral’s Harry Aikenhead said: “With Meghan due towards the end of April we could be heading for one of the more memorable Easter Sunday’s in the Royal household. Not only would the baby be born on the holiday, it also would then share a birthday with the Queen.

“It would be an incredible coincidence and we’ve slashed our odds on it coming true next month.”

Meghan Markle’s maternity wardrobe has been rather expensive, fashion fans have noticed. 

The Duchess of Sussex wore a Dior dress that cost an enormous £90,000.

Meghan Markle’s maternity clothes are estimated, in total, to be worth an incredible half a million pounds.

Royal Family line of succession – who outranks who?

The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.

It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.

Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on 26 March 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.

Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.

The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.

Prince Charles, 70, is currently second-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 37, his oldest son.

Then comes Prince William’s children, George, five, Charlotte, three, and Louis, almost one, and they  are followed by Prince Harry, 37. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s child will come next when they are born.
