Keira Knightley has criticised Kate Middleton’s post-birth appearance for the unrealistic standards it sets for women.
The comments come from her essay ‘The Weaker Sex’, which is part of the collection Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (And Other Lies); a book containing a number of essays by celebrities, including Emma Watson, writing about their thoughts on modern-day feminism.
In her essay, Knightley condemned the unreasonable and irrational standards placed on women after giving birth. The Hollywood actress has a three-year-old daughter Edie, with her husband James Righton.
“We stand and watch the TV screen,” the 33-year-old actress said.
“[Kate Middleton] was out of hospital seven hours later with her face made up and high heels on. The face the world wants to see.”
