Meghan Markle is no stranger to the spotlight. For the last 15 years, she’s been acting in American television series and creating her own name via television. Her relationship with Prince Harry was kept quite private during the early stages and since becoming public, the media hadn’t really taken a huge interest in Meghan. In fact, it wasn’t until their engagement that Meghan’s name really started to pick up in the media.
Unfortunately, Meghan was actually given a lot of flack for her past; while had been married before and lived a pretty free-spirited life, media began to wonder if Royal Life was something that she could live up to.
In America, The Royal Family is esteemed and highly respected. Many times, the spouses that marry into The Royal Family are also quite admired; they come from similar backgrounds and lifestyles. The Royal Family is a world of its own so it’s believed that someone who is familiar with that world will be better-suited to it.
Meghan Markle comes from a rather ‘normal’ life. While she's definitely not a royal, she is still very poised, educated, and gracious. She also has quite a free spirit, similar to her late and beloved mother-in-law, Princess Diana.
So far, Meghan’s had to resist the urge to defend herself and her privilege and honor to marry into The Royal Family. While she’s had quite the backlash, she is still remaining graceful. The thought of entering into this family would seem quite daunting, especially if it weren’t for one person…
Kate Middleton, Meghan’s soon-to-be sister in law, has been one of the biggest supporters of Meghan. Kate married Prince William in 2011 and since then has invited the world to fall in love with her character and grace. During her early relationship with Prince William, she was educated on The Royal Family. She had a team of people who ‘helped her become Royal.’ Looks like it’s paid off because she is one of the most respected and beloved women in the world!
Kate took an early notice to Meghan and the backlash that outsiders were giving her. Like any loving sister, Kate took action. She recognized that Meghan might need some encouragement in her new life as a Royal and, honestly, some good old-fashioned kindness.
The two royal women are the same age, both studied art in college, and have taken a liking to each other. Here’s to a beautiful and growing friendship between the two soon-to-be sisters! We love that Kate is being so helpful to Meghan and can’t wait to see how their relationship grows!
