Do you agree with her?

With Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's first child well on the way (there's speculation the bub is due in April 2019) Royal fans are keeping an extra close eye on the couple for any clues on what we can expect for the new addition to the fam. 

The slightest hint about name choice? You better believe it will go viral. 

Whispers about gender? That'll be front-page news.

So, it's no surprise that reports regarding the upbringing of the Royal baby have made their way into the media this week. 

According to Heat magazine, insiders have claimed that the Duchess of Sussex has made it known that she will not be following tradition when it comes to certain aspects of motherhood. 

“She’s determined her child won’t be paraded around in little shorts like Prince George,” the source told the publication. 

Reportedly, the tradition of young boys wearing shorts is linked to class. 

An etiquette expert told The Sun that dressing your young son in trousers, rather than shorts, is perceived as “suburban”... for some reason.

It doesn't seem as though Prince Harry's views on the matter have been made clear... 

Heat magazine's source continued, stating that Markle plans to breastfeed in public to "help normalise" the act, and alleged that her birthing plan is worlds apart from any other Royal's. 

They claim the mother-to-be has requested to have a "pool set up in a relaxing environment".

While in regular life all of these choices seem like no real biggie, moving away from tradition when you're a member of the Royal Family is always going to turn heads. 

But hey, it's her birthing experience. As long as everyone involved is safe, she should be able to do her thing.
