I read it. Though it wasn’t clear that you were simply quoting. And like I said, an assertion without evidence. Never mind the fact that all royal births involve more than just two doctors. And considering how the best accommodations can cost. Really don’t think the problem is if she has to pay a fee to a doctor. Sounds like it says more about them than her if a woman choosing her own doctor is a problem for them.

The good doctor may be on retainer and serve the Queen exclusively but I seriously doubt he does it for free or table scraps. If they're on staff for the Queen, they receive compensation for their services.

It sounded liked you were stating fact. Nowhere in your original post did you say you were parroting a DM article. That wasn’t clear to readers despite your intention.

And really, some folks prefer not to read DM articles so they would not understand that without referencing the article.

The Hospitals where other Royal ladies gave birth didn’t provide services for free, nor did the medical staffs. Typical twisting of facts by the DM.

Apparently they donít charge the Queen because the prestige means they can charge more for other clients who are not members of the royal family. And I thought this would be frowned upon.

I think, the "Daily Mail" spoke only about the births, that were conducted for free, the royal births.

And I would like to think, that is true, because it is a good advertisement for a doctor and something to brag about even to your Grandchildren, which then has something to tell at cocktail parties...

It is the same with working as a butler for the Queen: The wage is very low, but it is something for the vitae as a butler, a door opener to later much better paid jobs.

As far as the birth, she can just have Harry assist her in her birth, for all I care. Only the Queen and I believe first born son's wife had to have an official to be present [by law] to recognize that the child born was in fact the queen's true child [no mixing with another]. Since Anne, Andrew, Edward and now Harry will never sit on the throne, no big deal. And who really cares.

A number of posts have been deleted. Let’s stick to discussing the article and not turn this into another discussion about the media vs Meghan, or Kate vs Meghan. Thanks.

Doria is expected to be in London before the birth and help out Meghan and Harry for a few weeks and go home

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/a...ers-birth.html


while Tom Sr plans to welcome Baby Sussex in a non British bar hoisting a beer.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.exp...mas-markle/amp

It's been almost a year since Pap gate and Dad still doesn't get it that embarrassing stunts and gripe interviews will not help him get to see the baby. And begging to be invited to the christening or a family event goes back to Meghan's letter that he wanted a photo op after the pap stunt. Again this is about Sr wanting to look like a big shot to the world and not family unity. If he had followed Doria's example he would see his grandchild in the first hours of life.

Daily Fail must be getting desperate and rehashing old news. How many times do they report Doria will be coming over Shocking news, the grandmother will be there

Of course the 'Doria will push her daughter to have a natural birth' angle.

As for Tom Sr if he actually wanted to see the baby he would shut up. Every time he does these interviews he takes another twenty steps back from having any chance at seeing the baby or his daughter again. Notice he hopes to be invited to the christening, the 'public event'. Not that he just wants to be invited to see the baby.

I'm 100% sure Dailymail has no clue what Doria plans to do, they're just making a guess, which most of us have done too. Most likely Doria will fly over to UK, but no tabloid knows when and for how long.

As for Sr, everyone knows what he's going to do, because he sings like a canary to every tabloid around.

The media is following Doria. There have been new pictures of her daily. They even followed her to a clients house. They clearly waiting to see if she leave for London and that is the media's clue that Meghan is close. I wish they would leave her alone.

Becoming ridiculous. One of the worst, the 'headed to Windsor castle for appointments' title.

Whilst I get that the media has little respect for Doria's privacy to make a buck, there still some lines that should be respected. Given her line of work, her patients do deserve privacy and not have their community name be photographed or published like this.

Yes, that is 100% stalking. I don't care who is doing it, stalking is illegal. Why isn't it stopped by officials in California. Wimps

The expectation of being seen to go home, while puting some pressure on the parents, doesn't have to include looking perfectly made up or showing more of the baby than the parents wish to expose.
The parents wearing casual and comfortable clothing would be totally acceptable. they have to go home anyway so why not have a photo and then relax into parenting for weeks to come. It takes some pressure off in that respect.
The press are happy and then leave them to get on with it.
And the choice of when to go home (have the photo) is totally up to the couple.
The choice of whether to present for the press is totally up to the couple too.
I, personally, think Meghan and Harry will be on the steps because they will enjoy it.

I suspect Meghan and Harry will just been seen with the baby in the carrier as they exit the hospital and go to their car. No posing for the flashes. And honestly, why do they have to? They are the 6th in line and his wife. This baby will not be an HRH. People can't have it both ways in saying they are not important while complaining over them not doing something like posing with the baby.

Personally they have set up their IG account. Just post a picture a few days after getting settled at home. People will ooh and ahh over it and all will be fine. The press will never be happy. They will continue to attack them regardless so if that is the incentive then it is hardly worth it. They should do what is best for them.

Me thinks, Baby Sussex will later not even get an "Apanage", some money from the royal coffers. Or get for example the Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice some? I only remember, that there was some trouble between Charles and Edward about this question...
