Here's Why People Are Praising Meghan Markle's First Postpartum Appearance

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry broke royal tradition when they decided to delay showing their newborn son to the world.

We finally got to meet the newest member of the royal family, and people took to Twitter to share their reactions.

Many people have praised how Meghan handled her first postpartum appearance, and how she's sparked some important conversations around the realities of postpartum life.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shared the first look of their new baby on May 8 with reporters.

Meghan and Harry bucked royal tradition by choosing to wait a few days before debuting their new bundle of joy.

Meghan took the time to answer some questions and said that being a mom is "magic".

"It’s pretty amazing. I have the best two guys in the world, so I’m really happy,” she said.

On Monday, following the announcement of the baby's birth, Harry met briefly with reporters alone.

He could barely contain his excitement about being a new dad and gushed about his new son.

"It's been the most amazing experience I could have ever possibly imagined," he said.

One part of the baby reveal that many anticipate is guessing what the royal mother will choose to wear for the event.

Revealing the choice of clothing worn is arguably just as important as finding out sex and name of the royal baby.

Many people had fun guessing what she would wear for the reveal with Harry.

While the colors are close, Meghan's choice of outfit was far different and had lots of people applauding her.

For their first public appearance as a family, Meghan wore a sleeveless, white trench dress from designer Grace Wales Bonner.

She's worn similar dresses in the past, and wore a white trench coat when she and Harry announced their engagement. I guess this is becoming something of a signature style for her.

Besides her amazing style, people were praising Meghan's postpartum appearance for a few other reasons.

Firstly, many people supported the family's decision to wait before speaking to the press. Newly postpartum moms need time to rest and heal after giving birth.

Many people also praised Meghan for sharing her real postpartum belly after giving birth.

Most women still look about six-months pregnant after giving birth, as it takes time for the uterus to shrink back to its original size.

This Twitter user appreciated the body positive message that Meghan was sending, even if she intended to or not.

It's refreshing to see, considering a popular stereotype of royalty is perfectionism.

You may recall that people criticized Kate Middleton's postpartum body when she gave birth to Prince George.

People were genuinely shocked (really?) that Kate had a perfectly normal postpartum belly.

While Meghan has also been body-shamed, people are clapping back at these trolls.

Meghan has really stood up tall in the face of criticism over the years during her relationship with Harry, and this milestone proves no different.

By making this appearance, Meghan is contributing to an important conversation about the realities of postpartum life.

We expect new moms to "bounce back" immediately, but that's completely unrealistic. Many women experience permanent changes to their body following pregnancy.

There were some people who still felt that Meghan's postpartum appearance was unrealistic.

Even though she waited longer than most royals, at just a few days postpartum, most women are still healing and recovering. People thought that Meghan was being forced to look perfect for this photo-op.

Overall, moms around the world praised Meghan for bravely showing her real postpartum self.

More celebrities are following this trend of sharing their real selves with the world, and Meghan's influence spans across the globe. She's only been a mom for a few days and she's already starting conversations around issues that affect all moms.
