On February 20, Eugenia de York y Jack Brooksbank they presented their first child in society, August Philip Hawke. A week after the happy mother had been discharged, the family pose came to light via Instagram. All very casual and without royal pageantry … despite being the granddaughter of Elizabeth II. The princess chose a simple and unpretentious look for the occasion: a white funnel neck dress and a dusty pink trench coat. The only deluxe detail was her velvet headband from the American accessories firm Jennifer Behr, of 185 euros.
With hardly any makeup and with the ‘out of bed’ style hair, Eugenia showed her most natural side with her husband and her baby that, curiously, they were dressed to match, in blue. A few days before we had seen her leave the Portland hospital, where she gave birth, with another casual look … and recycled. The princess was returning home with a Hill House plaid dress that she has worn several times during pregnancy and that costs 125 euros (it is sold out on the web) and a camel coat from the Italian firm Max Mara.
If we compare the pose of Eugenia with the one that her political cousins starred in her day Kate Middleton y Meghan Markle When introducing themselves with their respective babies, we found some common ground. The most important is that all three showed their postpartum figure quite naturally. Her looks showed three royal mothers, this time without a crown … This feature was precisely one of the things that most caught the attention of the Duchess of Sussex when she and Prince Harry posed with Archie at Windsor Castle in May 2019.
Meghan chose a white dress-trench coat by designer Grace Wales Bonner with a belt tied below the chest that still showed her prominent belly. Manolo Blahnik’s makeup-colored suede pumps and a Jennifer Meyer pendant completed a minimal and rather sober outfit. Like the Princess of York, she wore almost no makeup.
For her part, the Duchess of Cambridge has also not hidden her new silhouette when announcing her children when leaving the hospital. On all three occasions, she opted for sixties cut minidresses, signed by British designer Jenny Packham, dressed with high-heeled shoes. And curiously, two of her looks were very similar to those that Lady Di had worn in her day to present Guillermo and Harry.
In his first public appearance with George, the first-born, Kate posed for the media with a baby blue model with white polka dots, without makeup and with natural hair. Very much in the vein of Eugenia, who may have been inspired by her to achieve this feeling of closeness. Two years later we met the little girl Charlotte, and the wife of the Duke of Cambridge surprised with a dress of yellow flowers and hair this time more worked, with waves. Finally, in 2018, he left the hospital with Louis in her arms, wearing a red dress with a baby neckline that also showed her post-pregnancy figure.
