    Post cut a lonely figure

    From Heavily pregnant Natascha McElhone braves motherhood alone after death of plastic surgeon husband | Mail Online

    In the text below, what does "cut a lonely figure" mean?

    It should be the happiest time of her life.
    But as Natascha McElhone prepares for the birth of her third baby she is doing so alone.
