Meghan Markle to hire doula

Meghan Markle to hire doula

The pregnant Duchess of Sussex put a personal touch to her Bristol visit last week, writing messages on bananas which were later donated to sex workers as part of a meal package.

While packing the food parcels, the royal newlywed asked for a marker to write empowering messages on the bananas.

He shot back: "You don't think that Meghan Markle is?"


TOBY MELVILLE via Getty Images Meghan wrote affirmations on bananas for snack bags that the charity distributes. Interestingly, Lauren has a royal connection already, given she's married to Oliver Mishcon, the grandson of solicitor Lord Mishcon whose law firm handled the divorce of the late Princess Diana and Prince Charles. Meghan replied with "My nickname is Meg, MM, M&M, and Flower (which my mum has called me since I was little)".

You may have noticed that Meghan Markle is usually pictured standing behind Kate Middleton at royal engagements and it turns out there's a specific reason why. "I saw this project this woman had started somewhere in the States on a school lunch program".

The Duchess took inspiration from a canteen manager in the U.S., who wrote affirmations on bananas to make school children feel empowered. "Most importantly, the Lindo Wing has the history of delivering a number of royal children, and a proven ability to successfully handle the press and public, while putting the royal families' privacy first, have given them the comfort level to return time and again".


However, one of the sex workers due to be handed one of the bananas told The Sun the message was offensive. "He interpreted that as his brother not really being behind this marriage, this union, and I don't think things have been quite right ever since". It's not just about flowers and chocolates either; some of of our best-loved stores produce the sweetest presents for him and her, so there's no excuse to not treat the one you love.

Others on social media disagreed with Morgan and critics of Markle, saying the duchess is setting an example by continuing to do charity work.

"When someone more important and influential came along, in the shape of Prince Harry, I was instantly dumped like a sack of spuds", he added.
