Meghan Markle accused of being 'DISHONEST' over royal birth - 'In for rude wake up call&
Meghan Markle should have been more “honest to women” on the experience of giving birth, claimed radio host Kait Borsay. Ms Borsay added the Duchess of Sussex is in for a “rude wake up call” if she believes baby Archie Harrison will continue to “sleep soundly”. The talkRADIOhost said: “Part of me wishes that Meghan said something honest to us as women, and said ‘oh my God it was horrendous, I’m totally glad I have a baby now but I have never, ever been in that much pain in my life’. We would relate to her.”
Earlier in the programme, Ms Borsay remarked: “’Parenting is amazing’ says Harry, well you have had two days at it. Calm down because it doesn’t stay amazing the whole way through.
“It’s generally amazing but we all know there are times when it is most definitely not amazing.”
Sky News presenter Jacquie Beltrao asked: “I think it’s mostly not amazing when they’re a baby isn’t it?”
Ms Borsay replied: “It’s just a bit of a bore and that’s what I almost feel these two are being.
“In the nicest possible way, they are new parents, they are gushing with lovely things to say about their new baby but it’s a bit of a bore. Like ‘the baby has been sleeping really well, it’s an absolutely sweetheart, it’s so gentle natured’, again the baby is two days old.
“It’s in shock. When you give birth a baby comes out and sometimes they’re in shock so much that they spend the first two days sleeping.
“So Meghan you’re going to have a very rude wake up call, if that baby’s sleeping soundly right now, it may not.”
Ms Beltrao interjected: “What you are saying is they are clueless, at the moment. In a nice way.”
Ms Borsay said: “In a nice way, but all of us mums know, if you had spoken to me two days after the birth of my children I would’ve told you to go swing one.
“I never would have put any makeup on, I would’ve told you parts of me hurt that I never knew I had parts there. I would tell you I was exhilarated, exhausted and a bit dumbfounded by the whole experience.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently announced the name of their newborn on Instagram.
They said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their first born child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
“This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duchess’ mother were also present for this special occasion.”
Archie made his first public appearance today as Meghan and Harry showed off their little bundle of joy for a photocall.
The royal couple could not hide their joy as they gushed about becoming parents.
Meghan said: ”It's magic, it's pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I'm really happy."
As her husband held their son, Meghan added: "He has the sweetest temperament, he's really calm."
As they both laughed, Harry said: "I don't know who he gets that from."
It is understood Archie will have no royal title initially as Meghan and Harry have chosen not to use courtesy titles such as Harry’s Scottish title Earl of Dumbarton.
He will be Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
However, when Prince Charles becomes king, Archie will become His Royal Highness Prince Archie, as a grandchild of the Sovereign.

My view: Meghan is not obligated to describe what she experienced during labour and maybe because she had a c-section. The baby looks like Meghan's father, Thomas Markle.
