Revealed: Kate Middleton has quality ‘Meghan Markle lacks’ – and the Queen loves it.

Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate has character traits that the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan lacks and the Queen is a firm admirer of her. 

Kate Middleton recently returned to royal duties after giving birth to her third born, Louis in spring.

And now, she is now gearing up for Christmas with Her Majesty at Sandringham. Meghan, meanwhile, is preparing for her second royal Christmas after marrying Prince Harry in May.

Commentators regularly compare the two royal brides. But an expert writer for The Royal UK, Pratishtha Mahajan believes that Queen Elizabeth sees qualities in Kate that cannot be seen in Meghan. 

Kate has many qualities.

In 2016 Amazon Prime documentary, ‘William & Kate: The Journey’, she reveals the reasons why Queen Elizabeth is very fond of Kate. “She likes her middle-class values”, says Pratishtha.

She adds: “She likes that she’s close to her family. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate has never tried to garner extra attention for herself. There’s nothing flashy or showy”.

The observation sets the Duchess of Cambridge apart from Meghan Markle.

She is also more daring with her fashion sense and, unlike Kate, thrives in the limelight as a former actress. What is more, a royal expert claims that Queen Elizabeth wanted to see Kate Middleton’s traits in her son’s wives. 

The royal expert:-

“Kate tows the company line all the time. And that’s something that Her Majesty very much wanted from Diana. And it didn’t happen. She wanted it from Sarah Ferguson, which didn’t actually happen”.

Well, that’s not it.

The royal insider also revealed that Kate Middleton is a special favourite of Queen Elizabeth’s because of the way she consistently supports the family.

Earlier in the documentary, it is suggested that the Queen encouraged the long courtship between William and Kate. It was so that the future Duchess could understand what it is like to be part of the royal family before her marriage.
