I read to day in the paper that Royal fans are 'disappointed' that they won't do they usual for pics on the steps of the hospital! I can think of nothing worse when you've just given birth than to have to get 'tarted up' so that a few people are satisfied.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a Royal fan but why should they do what everyone wants?

Because they are public figures?!

Tarted up? make up, hair brushed and a frock . and more than a few people expect what Diana did twice and Kate 3 times.

Why should they live in Frogmore , have royal titles and the privileges that go with their titles.

They are either in or out of the public eye, Zarah Phillips chose out, this couple chose in.

Personally I am thankful we will be spared seeing them

I'm glad they have the courage to do what they want rather than what they are expected to do. They are simply a couple having their first baby and should be left to get on with it imo.

Well, as she is having the baby at home (apparently) it would be rather a pointless trek to the steps of the Linden Wing, to have a few pics taken.

I don't blame them after how the media, especially the press, have treated them.
We love them, vs we hate them etc.
Give them some privacy.

If its a home birth perhaps she could be pictured on her own doorstep like Cherie Blair! I reckon we should just go back to an announcement being put up outside Buck House.

Anniebach Mon 15-Apr-19 17:08:21

Then why the announcement of no announcement and if they are ‘just a couple’ then why the need for the announcement, wish they would decide in or out, not one foot in an the other out

The Blair baby was born in hospital and being the first baby born to a serving PM for 150 years why not photograph the baby outside no 10

Agree Anniebach. They seem to use their position to suit. when it is all said and done they are only minor Royals, like Anne, Andrew and Edward. I don't remember those commanding the spotlight like the Sussex's do. then again I guess the media is different now days.
