18 Ways Princess Diana Shook Up The Royal House
Birth like a boss
Princess Diana was having none of the royal traditions around childbirth. While most royal mamas gave birth within the palace, assisted by doctors and medicated into a semiconscious state dubbed â€œtwilight sleep,â€ Diana wanted to do it her way. In a hospital. Unmedicated. Standing up. Charles assisted, helping to keep her upright. It was Diana who chose the Lindo Wing of St. Maryâ€™s and took those iconic photos holding William outside the hospital, a thing which the Duchess of Cambridge has repeated with all three of her children. No matter how any of the other royal babies come into the world, whether in a hospital or at home, it will be Diana who paved the way for their mothers to decide.
