Currently the most important topic of all media are Meghan Markle and Prince Harry who are expecting their first child. The United Kingdom, but also the entire world, expect the birth of baby Sussex eagerly, and there remained very little time. Almost every day, bookmakers predict whether a new royal baby will be a prince or a princess. Also, a very interesting topic is the name of the child that media has been speculating about in the past few days.
There is almost no news about other members of the most famous family in the United Kingdom. The media are occupied only with Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their baby. However, we must remember one very important person who, while she was alive, was very interesting to the media. Of course, we mean Princess Diana.
If she were alive, she would now share happiness with her son and daughter-in-law. Surely, many would want to know her opinion about the whole situation about Meghan and Prince Harry. For example, everyone would love to know if she would support all the plans that this royal couple has about the birth of their first child.
We all know that some of People’s Princess’s views are similar to those of Duke and Duchess of Sussex. She also did not like the attention of the media, which partially became the cause of her tragic death. It is known that Princess of Wales did not like rules in the royal family, and now Meghan and Harry try to avoid some protocols that hinder their plans.
What were Diana’s birth plans for babies?
Although you think it’s easy to be a member of the royal family, you’re actually not right. At the time she was pregnant, Princess Diana had various problems. For example, she sometimes felt very uncomfortable because she was forced to respect the various rules that was there in order for her and the baby to be healthy. People’s Princess did not like the fact that she had to do something that someone else told her, for example, others were telling her what to wear or they meddled in her diet. Another thing that bothered her was the fact that she had to always be smiling when she appeared in public.
On the other hand, Diana planned a normal pregnancy and did not want each of her actions to be controlled and therefore stood up against the tradition that bothered her.
What is the tradition in the royal family when it comes to the births of royal babies?
One well-known fact is that Princess Diana changed tradition because she was the first royal mother who did not give birth to her child at home, but at the hospital. Before her, Queen Elizabeth II gave birth to her four children at home. However, when the Princess of Wales decided to give birth at hospital, the tradition was broken. After her, the same thing was done by Kate Middleton with all her children.
Simply, Diana thought this was the best way for her and her sons. Therefore, we believe that she would support all of Meghan Markle’s decisions, in the case of a decision on home birth, as well as for birth at the hospital.
How would Princess Diana comment on the decision of Meghan Markle about the birth of baby Sussex?
Every decision Princess Diana made, had the cause. For example, the decision on the birth at the hospital was made because she did not want excessive control by her family and the staff that cared about her, but Diana also wanted more privacy. Then, the decision to take photos with her newborns in front of the hospital was for safety reasons, otherwise the media would try to take a photo of Prince William and Prince Harry in some unsafe ways.
That is why we see the similarities between the actions of People’s Princess and the actions that Meghan Markle wants to take. However, it is sometimes more important to feel safe and comfortable instead of being in tradition at all costs. We believe that Meghan and Harry would get a lot of support and understanding from Princess Diana if she were alive.
