Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are very different, and the Duchess of Cambridge would not be ‘known’ without Prince William, a royal commentator claimed.
Duncan Larcombe said their opposite background could be a reason for the Sussexes to separate themselves from the charity they share with the Cambridges.
Kensington Palace confirmed today that the Royal Foundation will be divided between the Sussexes and the Cambridges, as the couples concentrate on their own separate charitable efforts.
Duncan said to The Sun: “They (Prince Harry and Meghan) are actively trying to put their own team together.
“Kate fell into the royal family for a long period of time. Who would Kate be without Prince William? She would certainly not be known.
“Meghan without Harry would have been known, so she is determined to have more opinions about her PR, how they promote themselves as a couple, what they do with their children.”
The royal commentator said that given Meghan’s background as a Hollywood celebrity, she would like to take control of her public image and not sit in a back seat – unlike Kate, 37.
Of course, some of the differences between the royal brides are due to the fact that Kate met William when they were teenage students, while Meghan was a divorced 35-year-old when she met Harry.
Kate Middleton met Prince William beautifully when they were both studying at St. Andrew’s University in 2001, and she was around the age of 19.
After graduating, she worked for her parents’ company, Party Pieces, and also interned in Jigsaw, before the lovebirds finally made the decision in 2011.
Meanwhile, Hollywood actress Meghan met Harry much later when she was 35 in 2016.
Thanks to her acting, she was worth about $ 6.97 million at the time, and the high-profile couple enjoyed secret dates at Soho House, arranged by her celebrity friends.
Duncan added: “Meghan is not a shrinking violet, she will not lean back and take Harry’s guidance on everything.
“She had a million followers on Instagram before meeting Harry. Kate didn’t do it. So there will be a difference.”
Earlier this month, at the Queen’s official birthday party, Trooping the Color, images of Prince Harry appeared to show Meghan Markle strictly to turn on the balcony.
Duncan speculated that this might not have gone well with the Duchess of Sussex, 37.
He said: “It was interesting about the lip readers, while Harry told Meghan to turn on the balcony. It is clear that Harry is trying to help Meghan and advise her and calm her down.
“But very clearly at the same time Meghan has arrived in the royal family with her own knowledge of the media, her own knowledge of her profile and has been clearly upset by a number of things that have been written about her, which she would do historically. just responded or treated.
“The royal road is never complaining, never explaining. Meghan represents a whole new entity within the royal family.”
Duncan said it is rare for a person to join the royal family with a profile that is already established, as Meghan has done.
He added: “Harry has stood on that balcony enough to know that you should see the front at certain times.
“You wonder if they came back to their little eleven-bedroom house and that Harry was told.”
Duncan also said the split of the Royal Foundation shows that Meghan and Prince Harry are keen to “do things their own way.”
Royal assistants soon pointed out that it is not the end for those who work together on individual projects.
But it is a big blow to the Royal Foundation, which Meghan only officially joined after her wedding last May, who was planning to use the star of all four.
And it comes after Harry and Meghan separated from the household of Kate and William in Kensington Palace to establish their own.
William and Harry founded the Royal Foundation in 2009 to run all their charity campaigns and friends.
Kate then joined when she became Duchess of Cambridge in 2011.
They would often appear as a trio at events and the Foundation had huge successes with projects such as the Invictus Games for wounded veterans and the mental health campaign, Heads Together.
