The Duchess of Sussex took her son to see Dad Harry play in a polo match earlier this week, along with Kate Middleton, who was there with her three children.

The family seemed to be having a great day, however Meghan has been slammed online by people claiming she can’t hold her baby properly.

“She doesn’t know how to hold her child, she is wrestling and uncomfortable, on the verge of dropping him,” said one commenter.

“Why can’t she hold the baby properly after two months? It looks weird. Clearly the nanny looks after him most of the time,” added another.

Some fans came to her defence, however, saying that she could hold a baby, and as a new mum was likely still learning but doing her best.

Parenting expert and “Sleep Nanny” Lucy Shrimpton has weighed in on the matter, and says there was actually nothing wrong with the way Meghan was holding her son.

”While parents will adopt their own styles of holding and comforting their babies in a range of ways, the way Meghan is pictured holding Archie is actually a commonly recommended hold,” she told Yahoo UK.
