“She isn’t like a normal new mum.” “It is expected because she is a very public member of the royal family.” Did Kate Middleton go glam too soon? The Duchess of Cambridge sparked a debate on Twitter, but Newsroom commenters have kept it more practical — it’s part of her job!
Earlier this week, Prince William and his wife welcomed royal baby No. 3. Less than seven hours after delivering her son, Middleton stepped out in full makeup and hair to greet photographers. While all eyes were on her tiny bundle of joy, fans also noticed how perfect Middleton looked, and that she was even wearing heels! Many Twitter fans praised her quick turnaround, calling her a “hero.” Others felt “this should not be expected of women.”
Newsroom readers agree that Middleton looking put together, so fast, is part of her royal duties: “She has a team of people so she can look the part.” Another commenter wrote, “Her position demands that she put herself and baby on display.”
