Sources say Kate Middleton is becoming emboldened by her new position in the Royal Family following the shocking exit of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan. While some have described Duchess Kate as “the Queen’s rock,” others have noted more confidence and a changing up of style and dress.
It looks like Duchess Kate might be a little more comfortable telling it like it is, too. She recently opened up about the birth of her first child, George Louis, and it seems she might agree with Harry and Meghan on a few things.
Just one day after giving birth to her first child, George Louis, Kate Middleton stood on the hospital steps to introduce him to the world. Duchess Kate said she knew the public was very excited to meet the possible future King of England and she and Prince William wanted to give them that opportunity.
However, when recently asked about the event, Kate admitted the “circus” created by the media outside the hospital was “terrifying.” She also admitted to being emotional at the time and overwhelmed to new parenthood.
What’s interesting about Kate’s admission is that many have criticized Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan for their own battles with the British press, though the Sussexes seem to have very much the same point of view.
Prince Harry has blasted the British media for their treatment of his wife and has blamed them for playing a large role in his and Meghan’s decision to step back from the Royal Palace and move to Canada. Harry even went so far as to say he and Meghan felt they had “no other option” but to step down.
While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to be happier in Canada, they are not completely free from the nosy lenses of paparazzi just yet. Photos of Duchess Meghan and baby Archie Harrison on a hike were recently leaked, prompting the couple to warn photographers away from their family.
Lawyers cited dangerous and reckless driving by the press, along with camping outside the couple’s new home, as the main reasons for the cease and desist letter sent to the press.
Prince Harry has very good reason for being so protective, he lost his mother, Princess Diana, in a car accident at a very young age. Reports at the time said his mother’s driver was trying to avoid paparazzi.
Harry has been talking openly about the incident a lot recently, admitting that he started attending therapy to learn to cope with his mother’s death three years ago. He also noted that he could similarities in the ways Meghan and his mother were treated by the media and that he did not want to see Meghan and Archie live through the same trauma.
