Princess Diana was someone who was found as gracious and poised by the public, even though her marriage with Price Charles was pretty stormy and her mental health turned out to be unstable. The Princess was an independent woman who followed some of the royal traditions and rules, and some didn’t. But there is one rule she refused to follow that the royal mothers who gave birth (or will give birth) after her are probably thankful for. And we are here to tell you which bizzare tradition the late Princess Diana failed to obey and why.
Traditions That Members Of The Royal Family Need To Follow
There are many rules that members of British royal family must follow that point out the obvious and that would be that royal family is definitely not a typical family. From the most guileless things like not being able to wear a certain nail polish, or having to dress appropriately in public, to the rules that are related to starting a family, royals are expected to follow these traditions. When it comes to wedding, brides must wear a white wedding dresses. One of the traditions says that Queen Elizabeth technically has full custody of the royal children. But let us tell you more about a tradition that Princess Diana didn’t want to follow.
A Tradition About A Birth Place Of Any Royal Family Member
Royals had a tradition that Kensington Palace must be a place where every mother in the royal family gives birth. And that tradition was followed until Princess Diana came into the royal family. Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth were some of the royals who delivered their children inside the palace with a help of a midwife. The women would be medicated before delivery.
Diana Gave Birth In A Hospital And Breastfeed Her Children, And Was The First Royal To Do That
Princess Diana broke many royal traditions. During the wedding ceremony, she refused to say the word obey in her wedding vows. She never liked wearing gloves and hats to formal events, and she didn’t think that giving birth at Kensington Palace was a good idea. When Princess didn’t like or didn’t want to obey some rule or tradition, she would just do as she thought was better. So she did when giving birth was in question. She gave a birth to both her sons, William and Harry, at hospital, insted of at Kensington Palace.
After Diana, Other Royal Mothers Opted For Hospital, Instead Of Home Birth
Princess Diana paved the way for other royals to chose where they want to give a birth, and just like herself, many followed the hospital route. Princess Anne also delivered her children at a hospital. The Lindo Wing became popular among royals. Kate Middleton delivered her children as well at the hospital. It is believed that Meghan Markle will do the same. These women have Princess Diana to thank to for being able to deliver their children at hospital.
