The internet is funny place! I have laughed out loud over the last few days at what people have written in regards to Kate Middleton leaving hospital with Prince Louis seven hours after giving birth and looking amazing. Good on her!
What was she supposed to do walk out on to the steps of St Mary’s Hospital to face the World’s press looking exhausted, dressed in a comfy tracksuit? I think not.
She looked amazing! Yes she had her stylist and hair and makeup team to help her but I’m sure anyone if they were in her position, under constant scrutiny would do the same. There is no way in the World I would walk out to be photographed by thousands of people and look awful. I’m sure behind the blow-dry, pretty dress and heels she was absolutely knackered and just wanted to go home quietly with her baby out the back door but she can’t, she’s a Princess after all. She does keep it real though, back when she left hospital with Prince George she didn’t try to hide her post baby bump and pretend to have a flat stomach instantly like some celebs do.
When I had Oscar by emergency caesarean section 8 years ago I was horrified when I looked back at the photos at just how terrible I looked. After three days in labour and a c section I wasn’t looking great, haha. I left the hospital the next day, I discharged myself and went home. I am a proactive person and would never stay in hospital longer than I have to. I like to get home and get on with it.
Can’t believe I’m even sharing this photo! Greg looks hot in his scrubs though 😊
So when I had Archie by planned Caesarean section I straightened by hair and did my make up. Yes some might think it’s crazy/not important but it made me feel ten times better! I had Archie at 9.30am and was home by 11am the next day. I was driving after 9 days and felt fine.
I can’t see what the problem is leaving hospital looking and feeling good. She’s setting a good example that you can be a Mum, look after yourself, be proactive and go home and get on with running a house and looking after your children (I know she has a Nanny to help her).
This was the taken when Archie was 2 days old
Good on you Kate, I can imagine the stories of disgust if she had left the hospital looking dreadful!
What do you think?
