Archie’s First Public Appearance Is Getting Meghan Blasted


Poor Meghan Markle just can’t win: the duchess
found herself at the center of a nasty round of mom-shaming after enjoying a very public
royal family play date earlier this week. The former Suits actress stepped out with
two-month-old son Archie at the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day on July 10th, 2019. Markle, of course, was joined by husband Prince
Harry, as well as Prince William and his growing family. Most notably, the occasion marked one of the
Sussexes’ first outings as a family of three since Archie was introduced to the world back
in May. All in all, the charitable get-together was
totally adorable, and there thankfully appeared to be no signs of the so-called Royal Fab
Four’s alleged ongoing feud. But since the Internet is the Internet, it
wasn’t long before social media users took issue with the new mom’s parental instincts
… namely the way in which Markle cradled her baby boy in her arms. One critical Twitter user posted, “Is it just me or that’s NOT how you’re supposed
to hold a newborn? I get anxious simply looking at these pictures. It’s sad that Meghan Markle seems so awkward
and uncomfortable around her own son.” Meanwhile, another person wrote, “Smother, I mean, Mother of the Year award
goes to Meghan Markle! Archie looks so uncomfortable. Poor kid. Being used as a prop by her mother.” Another Twitter user claimed Markle lacked
“maternal instincts,” writing, “Archie’s neck and whole body not supported
by her at all. No sun hat to protect him.” We could go on, but you get the picture. Unfortunately, this isn’t the only round of
criticism Meghan and her family has faced recently. The royal couple was slammed over keeping
their newborn son’s christening at Windsor Castle largely private, though the move also
has its supporters… “It’s entirely up to them. It’s a personal thing, isn’t it, a christening?” Just a few days later, the duchess faced more
backlash…after wearing denim at Wimbledon. “Quite the scandal!” Fortunately, it hasn’t been all bad news for
the new mom. Headlines swirled over Markle’s casual style
at Wednesday’s charity polo event. According to People, she looked as gorgeous
as ever in a green dress by designer Lisa Marie Fernandez, which she paired with some
stylish golden-framed aviator shades. “You look good. What? She does.” “Oh, shut up, Serena.” Meanwhile, multiple fans took to social media
to support the duchess amid the baby-holding controversy. While one fan noted in part that, “Archie
looks content and comfy,” another fan tweeted, “I’m sure she knows how to hold a baby. Use your common sense…she’s trying to hide
him away from all the cameras.” Another Twitter user shared, “Protective mothers hold their babies like
that. I’m just [here] for the love I have for Meghan
and Harry and baby Archie.” All that said, if you’re still on the fence
about Meghan Markle’s baby-holding pose, look no further than parenting expert Lucy Shrimpton,
who chimed in on the matter with Yahoo Style, saying, Noting that baby Sussex’s head and neck were
indeed being supported, Shrimpton continued, “So can we all just stop pretending like we
have it figured out? And stop judging each other for once.” So, there you have it. The world may be full of mom-shamers and critics,
but you keep doing you, Meghan. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your
