British actress Keira Knightley recently took a dig at Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton for her post-delivery outings. The actress feels Kate is setting wrong examples for all the women out there to look their 'best' just hours after delivery. According to The Guardian, Keira had her daughter Edie a day before Charlotte was born, and the actress wasn't too happy with how Kate presented herself to the world hours after giving birth.

In the newly released feminist essay collection Feminists Don't Wear Pink (And Other Lies), Keira has penned down an emotional yet powerful essay for all mothers where she explains why disapproves of Kate!
In her piece titled 'The Weaker Sex' Keira writes, 'We stand and watch the TV screen. She was out of hospital seven hours later with her face made up and high heels on. The face the world wants to see. Hide. Hide our pain, our bodies splitting, our breasts leaking, our hormones raging. Look beautiful, look stylish, don't show your battleground, Kate. Seven hours after your fight with life and death, seven hours after your body breaks open, and bloody, screaming life comes out. Don't show. Don't tell. Stand there with your girl and be shot by a pack of male photographers.'
Going further, she revealed her own experience about what a mother goes through while delivering her child. 'My vagina split. You came out with your eyes open. Arms up in the air. Screaming. They put you on to me, covered in blood, vernix, your head misshapen from the birth canal. Pulsating, gasping, screaming. You latched on to my breast immediately, hungrily, I remember the pain. The mouth clenched tight around my nipple, light sucking on and sucking out. I remember the s—, the vomit, the blood, the stitches. I remember my battleground. Your battleground and life pulsating. Surviving. And I am the weaker sex?' The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle Makes Her First Appearance as a Royal in Pantyhose; Takes the Kate Middleton Route, View Pics.
