Do it differently! Duchess Meghan’s first royal baby is coming and her pregnancy is different from that of her sister-in-law, the Duchess Kate.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 37, and her husband, Prince William, share three children. Prince George, 5, was born in 2013, followed by Princess Charlotte, 3 and Prince Louis, 11 months, in 2015 and 2018, respectively.
While all three of her small children were with her, Kate Middleton suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, which is extreme morning sickness, characterized by severe nausea, persistent vomiting and dehydration.
“Usually women who get it once are more likely to get it again,” Dr. said. Knopman Us Weekly exclusively in September 2017. “Risk factors include a personal or family history of HG – beware of Pippa! – and a history of motion sickness or migraine.”
This caused Kate to miss many royal activities during her pregnancies, but Meghan Markle, also 37, has traveled to multiple continents since she confirmed in October 2018 that she and Prince Harry were expecting a baby.
“Hune Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the spring of 2019,” Kensington Palace’s statement at the time showed. “Hune Royal Highnesses appreciate all the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are very happy to be able to share this happy news with the public.”
In January, the former actress told benefactors in Birkenhead, England, a more specific expiration date. Meghan Markle said she should deliver by the end of April or early May – and when her little one arrives, she doesn’t take long maternity leave.
The duchess “is planning to get back to work as soon as possible,” a source told us exclusively in April 2019. “She came to the royal family with so many goals and plans to move forward.”
Meghan Markle confirmed in October that she is expecting her first child in the spring of 2019, while Kate announced her pregnancies much earlier. That may be because the duchess of the extreme morning sickness of Cambrige made her turn up several times.
While Kate ventured into expecting baby humor, the Duchess of Sussex received criticism during her pregnancy because she touched her stomach too much – especially after attending the Fashion Awards in London in December. “When I see another photo of Meghan Markle who cradles the bump I’m going to throw up. … You are pregnant … WE KNOW! “One critic wrote at the time, while another added:” She should learn from Kate how to pose pregnant during pregnancy. “
“Right now we understand that she … doesn’t want to do that, won’t do that,” said British correspondent Emily Andrews during an April episode of the podcast “On Heir” when asked if Meghan Markle debut her baby on the stairs of the Lindo wing in St. Mary’s Hospital.
Royal commentator Omid Scobie added: “Given what we know about Meghan Markle, the optics of a completely glamorous, perfect picture-moment hours after delivery are not entirely in line with her view of the world.”
Time to Travel
Because of her hyperemesis gravidarum diagnosis, Kate did not travel much during her pregnancy, but Meghan Markle has been a world traveler. Not only was she on a royal tour with Harry when Kensington Palace confirmed she was pregnant, she flew to New York City in February 2019 for a baby shower.
Given that baby showers are an American tradition, it’s no surprise that Kate has never had one. Meghan Markle, however, celebrated a star-studded party in Manhattan with her friends, including Serena Williams, Gayle King and Amal Clooney.
“Meghan Markle is still struggling with the London press,” one source exclusively told us a month after the party. “She was informed that Kensington Palace and the royal family is not the way they are doing with a large, flashy baby shower like the one she had in New York.”
Meghan Markle and her husband have revealed that they will keep the arrival of their baby private. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people all over the UK and the rest of the world as they prepare to welcome their baby,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement in April 2019. “Their Royal Highnesses have made a personal decision to keep the plans for the arrival of their baby private. The duke and duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had the opportunity to look like a new family. “
