Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle's friendship is one to be envied, considering the short time it took for them to bond after becoming sisters-in-law, following Meghan's marriage to Prince Harry on May 19, 2018.
But what's the truth about their relationship?
Of course, you may think the two never hung around each other because you never saw the photos nor heard gossip, but the truth is those two saw each other in a plain neighbor get-to together, which the press never heard.
Yes, Prince Harry lived next door to his brother at the palace, so it is possible that the two visit each other as often as possible without stirring up the paparazzi. In an interview with BBC, Meghan disclosed that Middleton was ‘wonderful’ throughout the process.
Keeping Up with the Other Sister
You’ll agree that the best way to form a better bond with someone is to get to know their likes and dislikes and, in some cases, meet their family and friends. Meghan seemed to have gotten that right as she came through for Pippa at her wedding.
Plus, Prince Harry had the intrusion to drive up miles to ensure Meghan made it to the reception; and that helped her bond even more.
Meghan's First Holiday with the Royal Family
Meghan spent her first Christmas holiday with Prince Harry and his family in 2017. As a source made it known, Meghan doesn't have family in the U.K. Harry asked the queen for permission, and she was delighted to have Harry bring his fiancée.
It is a family occasion, and Meghan is very much family now. This, much more than anything, was an added advantage for Meghan to know more about Middleton.
Kate Knows the Tightropes of Royalty
Meghan may have gotten acquainted with having the public's attention, but royal life garners fame and critics to a different degree. Like Middleton, she had to switch up as she prepared for her wedding.
According to an unknown royal insider in a now-deleted Hollywood Life article, "Kate has taken Meghan under her wing and has offered her support and the promise of plenty of advice to help her adjust to her new life.
Kate knows better than anyone how overwhelming and challenging it can be to transition into being a member of the royal family, and she's vowed to assist Meghan in any way she can."
Meghan Got the Trends; Kate Got the Culture
A look into both ladies’ taste buds in fashion, and you'll agree that Middleton knows how to pull a traditional British lady look while Meghan, on the other hand, knows how to smash it in with trendy and modern dress style. However, the good thing is both women know which dress looks adorable on them.
Have you ever heard of the "Duchess or Meghan's effect?" Oh, yes! When any of the ladies wear a particular dress or coat by a designer, it sells out almost immediately. Now, that’s what we call the "Duchess and Meghan's effect."
Meghan Probably Learnt from Kate’s Sunbathe Saga
Recall Closer, the French magazine, publishing photos of Kate, the then-new Duchess, sunbathing topless? She and Prince William had to sue the magazine and were paid 100,000euros for damages in 2017.
I bet that lesson was enough to pull Meghan from harm's way and help her choose a more private life.
Will Their Differences Help Them Bond Better?
While Meghan may have spent her whole life in the spotlight as an actress, Middleton, on the other hand, did not. Also, while Middleton's marriage to Prince William happened to be her first, that of Meghan to Prince Harry isn't.
Well, there is a big contrast between the two women except for their age, but we'll see how they get to bind with these differences in the future.
The question has always been, can the ladies be friends in the future? The simple answer is “YES.” Meghan and Kate seem to click. According to an insider, the ladies share a very similar sense of humor, and they're both super sweet and kind people.
They both enjoy the countryside and are interested in fashion. What other similarities do we need? They could become best friends, or their kids could bring them together
