The baby Sussex is on the way, and public eyes are on the royal family more than ever. The whole world is watching on the new royal couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and waiting news about a newborn. The arrival of the new royal member is on the media microscope.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have a different approach to the pregnancy than Prince William and Kate Middleton, and Sussex couple wants to break one royal tradition that Princess Diana and Kate Middleton did.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will not show up at the steps of the hospital a few hours after the birth of the new baby royal.
There will be no taking photos on the steps after the birth.
A royal tradition
The most beautiful photos ever of Princess Diana are taken in front of the hospital a few hours after the birth of her boys, Prince William, and Prince Harry. This tradition followed Kate Middleton three times when she gave birth to Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louise.
Kate Middleton stood happy on the steps in front of the hospital, like her mother-in-law, Princess Diana, a few decades before, and posed for photos of newborn. She even answered reporters to all questions.
This tradition lasts for a few decades, and started with Princess Diana, it is not a tradition that lasts for centuries. This royal rule enables a crowd to see and be a part of the birth of the new royal member.
Why Meghan Markle will not follow tradition
Meghan Markle is the kind of princess that like to do things in her own way, and that means she will not stand on the steps in front of the photographs. She and Prince Harry do not like standing and posing in front of the camera just a few hours after birth. Meghan Markle wants to have her special postpartum experience, and Buckingham Palace gave an official statement that the couple will share their newborn when they are ready.
Meghan Markle does not want to pose perfectly dressed, with beautiful hairstyle and makeup, after delivering a baby, like her sister-in-law, and mother-in-law because that tradition is against her view of motherhood and feminism. Duchess of Sussex wants to keep postpartum period in the private, inner royal circle.
A new approach to royal parenthood

We are excited to announce that The Duke of Sussex and Oprah Winfrey are partners, co-creators and executive producers on their forthcoming mental health series launching on Apple in 2023. The pair have been developing the series for several months and are looking forward to sharing such an important project on this global platform. The dynamic multi-part documentary series will focus on both mental illness and mental wellness, inspiring viewers to have an honest conversation about the challenges each of us faces, and how to equip ourselves with the tools to not simply survive, but to thrive. This commitment builds on The Duke of Sussex’s long-standing work on issues and initiatives regarding mental health, where he has candidly shared personal experience and advocated for those who silently suffer, empowering them to get the help and support they deserve. His Royal Highness has spent many years working with communities throughout the UK and young people across the Commonwealth to break the stigma surrounding mental illness and broaden the conversation of mental wellness to accelerate change for a more compassionate, connected and positive society. Quote from HRH: “I truly believe that good mental health – mental fitness – is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self. It is a huge responsibility to get this right as we bring you the facts, the science and the awareness of a subject that is so relevant during these times. Our hope is that this series will be positive, enlightening and inclusive – sharing global stories of unparalleled human spirit fighting back from the darkest places, and the opportunity for us to understand ourselves and those around us better. I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series.”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are truly grateful for all love, affection, and care towards their baby from all over the world, but the safety of the new royal member comes in the first place. The crowd eager to see what the baby will look like, how will be dressed up, and the color of the blanket, but in this case, public interest comes at the second place, after the baby safety.
The baby will be hidden from the public eyes for the first period of life because parents think that the newborn will have the whole his or her life to be in the spotlight of media.
The crowd will still get to see and meet baby Sussex in another way because Duke and Duchess of Sussex made their own Instagram account, where they will post and share a photo of the newborn with the world.
We will not have a photo in front of the hospital on the steps, but we will see a baby on Instagram.
They post and share with the audiences that they will use their Instagram account to post and share all announcements with their charities and royal activities. One of the most important announcements on their profile will definitely a photo of the little prince.
Many fans of the Duke and Duchess thinks that photo shooting in front of the hospital is not their lifestyle, and they are eager to see baby photo on Instagram.
