Expectation vs reality: New mums share hilarious pics to rival Kate Middleton's post-labour glow
Kate Middleton emerged from hospital this week looking as flawless as ever just hours after giving birth to her third child - and new mums are in awe.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge showed the new prince off to the waiting media, with Kate looking radiant in a red dress, complete with heels and a blow-dry.
In fairness Kate does have a team of people around her to get her camera ready, but a host of mums took to Twitter in the days following the birth to give a hilarious contrast of what the normal folk look like post-labour.
As expected, the results are hilarious...

I mean, I know she had help to look that good but I would’ve needed a mortician that specialises in putting make up on corpses and industrial quantities of sanitary wear #KateMiddleton pic.twitter.com/UHjK85gYLm
Everyone is praising Kate Middleton for being photographed hours after giving birth. It made me go back through old pictures of when I had my first, and it turns out Kate isn't the only one with #postbirthphotos.— Anna Kruk Corbin (@annabanana0626) April 24, 2018
