OPINION: Before marrying a prince and becoming his Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex, the old Meghan Markle was her celebrity with 3 million followers on Instagram.
Was commissioned and inspired by Insta? For sure. But he presented her as a person, real who did real things.
Meghan Markle cooked and eaten enthusiastically. He drank cans of beer and large glasses of wine. Meghan Markle threw loftings in front of her mirror. He worked at the gym and spent with his friends. Meghan Markle joked.
The duchess of Sussex does nothing like that.
* Postpartum perfection: the standard impossible to glamor after giving birth
* Meghan Markle heads her maternity style
* Amy Schumer says that Meghan Markle is her "nemesis" of pregnancy
* Serena Williams to Meghan Markle: "Stop being so beautiful"
The royals, and royal women in particular, are not supposed to be real. It hopes to be presented to the world as eternally, effortlessly, perfectly simple.
Real women do not eat or do physical exercise. He is never tired or frustrated or bored. We only see the fruits of their work, but never work.
It is never true that, literally, during your actual pregnancy.
But we are clear that Meghan Markle could have documented her pregnancy in the comic book Amy Schumer, whose baby was born a few hours before Archie's teacher.
It is a story of two pregnancies.
Let's start with the ads.
Schumer was a politician and buried his news at the end of an Instagram story, showing his preferred candidates at the Congress and the governor.
Meghan Markle was politically open, but the Duchess does not have permission to maintain such opinions.
He did not even announce his own pregnancy. This honor was for the Kensington Palace, which announced Instagram made the mother the inability to list her husband's first name.
"His Royal Highnesses, the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex, are very pleased to announce that La Duchesse de Sussex is expecting a baby in the spring of 2019," he read.
The post was accompanied by a photo of the duchess – perfectly made, with an artistic hair launched, with a nice dress.
And so his pregnancy continued. The Duchess made public appearances until she became pregnant for about eight months: she always wore high heels, always shining.
Amy Schumer continued to appear in public and publishing on Instagram.
She published some photos of herself surprised, surely. But he also published many of them in stretched pants and without makeup, fell home or relaxed with her husband.
And there were many features that represented the most accidental side of her pregnancy.
In particular, Schumer was disconsolated in his representation of how gravitational hyperemias affected him, publishing images of herself in a hospital dripping or toilet layer.
The duchess of Cambridge also suffered hyperemias, in fact, three times.
But we never see her looking badly. When her Royal Highness, Catherine appeared in public while pregnant, she was still supposed to be absolutely perfect, as if she were not critically dehydrated, as if she had not spent most of the day with her head on a bucket.
As if you were not pregnant.
That's how he also spent the pregnancy of his sister-in-law: the business of the firm, as usual, had a concession due to the fact that a person grew up inside.
Then he gave birth.
If something illustrates the difference between a real pregnancy and a celebrity, it is the announcement of the birth of Amy Schumer against the duchess.
Schumer is in the hospital bed. It does not carry makeup, nor, by its appearance, no clothes, its body is covered by a sheet. A blood pressure monitor is placed on the arm. She embraces her baby, her husband kisses her on the cheek. She looks peaceful and happy.
The duchess puts with the duke at the castle of Windsor. His makeup is impeccable. His hair stomach. She wears a white dress: white! with all this post-part bleeding. – And the ubiquitous heels. His smile is strict. Your eyes are blank.
Schumer has joked about being pregnant at the same time as Markle, calling her "my pregnancy nymph."
But he was not really pregnant at the same time as Meghan Markle, the celebrity. He was pregnant at the same time as the duchess of Sussex, the royal one, who never allows him to break the sheet of perfection impossible.
