Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are both great granddaughters of Queen Elizabeth. Her Majesty has close ties with both and has even made official appearances with both duchesses. With Meghan and Kate as such wonderful additions to the royal family, it is certain that everyone can just love it.
However, with their different personalities and their approach to royal life, many fans wonder who is better with Queen Elizabeth, Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton?
Kate Middleton was slowly welcomed into the royal family
Kate and Prince William date many years before they finally announce their engagement. During this period Kate got to know members of the royal family such as Prince Harry, Charles and Camilla. Although she had only been out with William for seven years, she eventually met the queen. Even after they officially became the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, it took a while before Kate finally made a solo performance with her husband’s grandmother.
However, this does not mean that the Queen and Kate do not have a good relationship. They seem to get along well, and we must not forget that Kate was very young when she met William. Kate’s recent solo performance with the Queen was also a great way for Queen Elizabeth to show her support at a time when Meghan seems to be getting all the attention.
Meghan is more of a celebrity than Kate
As we all know, Meghan Markle rose to fame in the acting world. She got her big break in the hit drama Suits and has a strong fan base in both the United States and England.
Although Kate Middleton is a household name, she was known for her royal status, while Meghan became known as a celebrity long before she ever met Prince Harry. Queen Elizabeth may prefer Kate not to be associated with Hollywood, and although she has a strong relationship with Meghan, Kate’s background may be more favorable.
Kate closely follows the royal rule book
There is a strict set of rules for the royal family, and Kate Middleton seems to follow just about every one of them. Because her dresses have a certain length not to hold in the presence of Queen William‘s hand, we can always count on Kate to do exactly what she expects. Although Meghan is certainly not challenging, she does give her own spin to royal life.
The Duchess of Sussex can be seen in dresses without tights, deliberately messy hair and mismatched earrings. And we can always count on her and Harry to be hand in hand, regardless of who she can see, even Queen Elizabeth.
Meghan and Harry split from the royal household
Both couples have busy agendas and need enough team members to help with the daily aspects of coordinating their royal duties. Kate and William, to the Queen’s delight, have always had their home in London, live in Kensington Palace and have their official offices in Buckingham Palace and Clarence House.
Recently Meghan and Harry decided to go their own way and to split themselves out of the royal house as a way to declare their independence. They decided that they wanted to do things their own way, and it is likely that the queen has mixed feelings about the whole situation. William and Kate are in accordance with the Royal Protocol, while Meghan and Harry enjoy being alone.
Although the queen loves Kate and Meghan, she might be a little better with Kate. The Duchess of Cambridge is very predictable and does things exactly as Queen Elizabeth would expect. Meghan’s celebrity background makes her take a few more risks, and while this may cause a little friction with the queen, it’s one of many reasons that we love her as much as we do!
