Pregnant Meghan ‘will not pose with first baby on hospital steps’

She's set to give birth very soon

| Updated:

The Duchess of Sussex is reportedly not planning to pose with her newborn baby on the hospital steps like Kate Middleton and Princess Diana did.

Meghan and her husband Harry will welcome their first child some time this month and fans will be desperate to catch a glimpse of the royal baby.

However, according to royal correspondent Emily Andrews, Meghan will apparently break a four-decade royal tradition by deciding not to pose outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in London.

Emily said Meghan will want a more private and normal birth and to bond with her baby without the pressure of facing cameras.

According to The Sun, when asked whether Meghan is planning an “on the steps moment”, Emily told the On Heir podcast: “At the moment, we understand that she isn’t, she doesn’t want to do that, isn’t going to do that.”

American commentator Omid Scobie added that Meghan posing for the pics would go against her “feminist” beliefs.

He said: “Given what we know about Meghan, the optics of a totally glamorous, picture-perfect moment hours after giving birth are not quite in alignment with her views on the world.”

It comes after it was recently reported that Meghan won’t give birth in the Lindo wing.

Meghan has reportedly decided on a maternity unit which is closer to their home in Windsor rather than the Lindo, where the Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to all three of her kids.

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: “This child will not be born at the Lindo. The talk of all the senior clinicians there is that Meghan doesn’t want to copy what Kate did.

“Harry and Meghan realise there is intense public interest but this baby is not a direct heir to the throne and they want the birth to be as private as possible.

“She and Harry have decided that rather than go somewhere as public as the Lindo they will allow Meghan to recover somewhere more private. She just wants a normal, natural birth and to bond with her baby, without being primped and blow-dried to within an inch of her life just for the pictures.”
