Pregnancy And Baby Customs The Royals Must Follow

For most of us, having a baby is a life-changing event in more ways than one. The world as we know it ceases to be, and suddenly everything revolves around this tiny new life. While having a newborn is a big event for any household, it’s an entirely different kettle of fish for the royal family.

Royal moms don’t get the luxuries that a lot of us take for granted. They’re also expected to follow all sorts of traditions and protocol, from the way the birth is announced to what their kids wear. It might seem unimaginable to us, but it’s all part of being in such a prominent family.

There Must Be An Immediate Debut

Most women who give birth wear leggings and a messy bun directly after delivering a baby. After all, it’s a pretty traumatic, exhausting experience that leaves you feeling like you’ve been hit by a bus. Given the choice, a royal mama would likely do the same. Unfortunately for the likes of K-Mid, that’s not an option.
