According to the Daily Mail, Meghan Markle would have said “no, thanks” to traditional royal gynecologists. So to assist her in the delivery room – in case of need – there will be a whole new team of doctors, led by a female doctor. It is, if confirmed, a real “revolution” because so far to oversee the birth of the last royal babies – including the three sons of Kate Middleton and William –were Alan Farthing and Guy Thorpe-Beeston. Specialists in high risk deliveries and trusted gynecologists of the royal family.
“I don’t want men in suits and ties,” said Meghan, according the British newspaper insider. However, according to other observers, the choice of the duchess could be considered “unnecessarily extravagant” because the queen’s doctors work for free (“they consider it an honor”), while hiring a new team of specialists will cost tens of thousands of pounds.
Meghan wants things how she wants them. The 37-year-old, in fact, would have selected a different hospital from the classic Lindo Wing of St. Mary in London. It will probably be the structure closer to Frogmore Cottage, where she and Harry have just moved in. And it might not even be in the duchess’s programs to pose for the classic post delivery photo a few hours after the birth. “From what we know of Meghan, the prospect of a glamorous and perfect moment for post-delivery photos would not be in line with her idea about the world.”
