Look at Holly Willoughby’s Instagram feed and you instantly get an insight into her lifestyle, beauty and fashion but one thing she’s always careful to protect is her children’s privacy.

The 40-year-old presenter shares three children, Harry, 11, Belle, nine, and six-year-old Chester, with her TV producer husband, Dan Baldwin, and will often post sweet images of her family together but never with the kid’s faces on show.

Now, for the first time, she’s revealed exactly why.

Talking to her This Morning co-host, Phillip Schofield, the 40-year-old discussed recent comments made by the Duchess of Sussex regarding her son Archie’s privacy.

During her interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan said she has a right to share photos of her son without the paparazzi claiming that they can photograph him all of the time.

She said: "I think everyone has a basic right to privacy. Basic.

"There’s no one who’s on Instagram or social media that would say: 'Because I shared this one picture, that entitles you to have my entire camera roll. Go ahead and look through it.'

"No one would want that. So it’s about boundaries. And it’s about respect."

Holly was quick to comment, saying: "I choose not to show my children's faces because I know that's the deal. If you show one photograph, then they're out there.

"They're for consumption for everybody, which is why I choose not to do it."

Holly’s most recent family picture showed her hugging her daughter Belle, whose face could not be seen, for International Women’s Day earlier this month.

Captioning the touching photograph,Holly wrote: "There is a magic in her... there is a magic in all women.... a wild and strong magic...can you feel it... #internationalwomensday".
