Are British Tabloids Upset With Meghan Markle and Prince Harry?

Playing How Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Breaking Royal Tradition

The British tabloids are reportedly upset at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle because the royal couple will not have a photoshoot after the birth of their baby. 

"Scorned British tabloids to Harry and Meghan: show us your baby!" screams a New York Times headline.

It's been royal tradition the last 40 years to pose for that iconic photo outside the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital.

Harry and Meghan announced they will instead share their own pictures of baby Sussex after they have "an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family."

British media claims the snub is infringing on its royal rights, according to The Times. "The public has a right to know about the lives of those largely funded by their taxes. You can accept that, or be private citizens. Not both." 

It's believed Harry still harbors animosity for the media after his mother was killed in a car crash as she fled from paparazzi even though the tragedy was attributed to her own drunk driver. Meghan is also reportedly "uncomfortable with the idea of a staged photo call so soon after giving birth,” according to Vanity Fair. 

Those close to the royal couple may be dropping hints about the Duchess of Sussex’s due date.

Prince Charles sparked major speculation after announcing he will visit Germany on May 7.

Another clue comes from Markle’s longtime makeup artist when he posted that he will be back in New York on May 5, leading many to believe the royal baby will be born by then.
