What's with Meghan and her bump?

After pictures from her British Fashion Awards cameo appearance hit the webs, she came under a lot of criticism because she could not seem to stand, speak or laugh without lovingly cradling her months-old bump.

One Twitter user pointed out that Meghan looked more like she was trying to protect the bump from falling off. Not necessarily an eager first-time mom-to-be.

Why an expert agrees with Meghan's critics

Body language experts have weighed in on all the furor caused by her recent outings and here's what a leading practitioner has to say.

Australian expert Louise Mahler strongly believes all the Duchess' poses look manufactured and camera conscious. She told New Idea that the way Meghan holds her bump is not normal at all.

As an actress Meghan knows where the lights are the silhouette. She is ‘workin’ it" baby. I am thinking she is going for the ‘Virgin Mary’ pose.

But belly rubbing is perfectly healthy

Another expert, Katherine Graves, who teaches Hypnobirthing classes shared her thoughts with FEMAIL. She acknowledged that stomach touching is a healthy bonding practice between mother and unborn child. It helps to reassure the baby and manage postnatal depression.

Graves also said the habit could be very comforting for Meghan and noted that in her classes, every time a mother touches her bump, the baby responds. So, why is Meghan's unsettling?
