MEGHAN has been praised for not trying to hide her post-birth ‘mum tum’ in yesterday’s photocall with baby Archie.
The 37-year-old duchess, who wore a white blazer-style dress and Manolo Blahnik heels, was hailed for setting a good example — and wearing an outfit that accentuated her bump.
Siobhan Freegard, founder of parenting website Channel Mum, said: ‘Meghan has done something no other celebrity has done before by actually emphasising the wonderful curves of her post-partum figure.
‘Meghan’s tightly-tied belt with large bow draws the eye and enhances her womanly figure. Let’s hope she encourages more mums to celebrate their bodies for what they can do, not just what they look like.’
Her sentiments were echoed on social media.
Jacqueline Antonovich wrote on Twitter: ‘I don’t care about royal families, but I do care about the history of pregnancy & reproduction — especially our cultural obsession with postnatal bodies. So I love that Meghan Markle chose an outfit that shows off her post-baby bump.’
Felicity Kvesic said: ‘Absolutely love that Meghan wore this dress highlighting her mum tum and natural make up, baby bump fully out. You go girl.
Bodies don’t just bounce back to normal people’.
Archie’s outfit also got attention after it was revealed his shawl was made by the same family-run Nottingham company, GH Hurt & Son, that was used by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for their children. The royal tradition is said to go back decades.
