Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first child is coming soon, and everyone is speculating about how their lives will change. The fans are also curious about how this will affect Meghan Markle’s image in the media.
Ever since their relationship became public, Meghan had to deal with many negative reports, calling her a gold-digger, an attention seeker, a rich show-off and many other. However, will the media change their look on her when she becomes a mother?
Meghan Markle’s parenting style
The way everyone sees Meghan as a mother will be based on how she and Harry raise their child. It is obvious that they will skip several royal traditions and become more modern parents. They will only hire a nanny, unlike other royals who hire a full staff and the baby will grow close to other family members, such as Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mother.
The Duchess also said that she wants to raise the child as a feminist, regardless of its gender.
Is motherhood going to change Meghan Markle’s image?
A royal history expert, Coryne Hall says that the baby is going to reduce the amount of negative press that Meghan gets. The media is going to focus on the baby itself. “They build someone up and put them on a pedestal, and when they can’t find anything more to say, they start knocking them down,” she said. “Once the baby is born, the coverage of Meghan will go the other way again. She won’t do any wrong.”
Meghan could also get positive attention for her parenting when the baby grows up.
Kate Middleton’s image as a mother
Even though Kate Middleton didn’t get as many negative comments as Meghan Markle did when she got married, she was still criticized about her lack of work ethics. She barely had a full-time job at the age of 29, and she didn’t take as much work as she was supposed to. However, her parenting skills have received positive reports.
She took this role seriously, and she makes sure to be involved in the lives of all of her children. Kate even talked about all the difficulties she has about motherhood and the public relates to her quite a lot.
