Kate Middleton age: Is the Duchess of Cambridge older or younger than Meghan Markle?

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, are sisters-in-law now, married to the brothers Prince William and Prince Harry. But is the Duchess of Cambridge older or younger than Meghan Markle?


Meghan Markle joined the royal family on May 19 when she married Prince Harry in Windsor in a stunning Royal Wedding as the world watched.

Since then, the American actress has been making her mark on the British royals, and she was spotted out and about with the Queen in Cheshire this week.

Kate and William were married on April 29, 2011, and celebrated their seventh anniversary this year.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have three children: George, four, Charlotte, three, and Louis, nearly two months old.

Is Kate older or younger than Meghan?
Kate Middleton was born on January 9, 1982, making her 36 years old.

Meghan Markle was born on August 4, 1981 and is currently 36 too, but five months older than Kate.

It has been well publicised Harry is younger than his bride – the Prince was born on September 15, 1984, making him 33 years old.

However, you may not have known Harry’s older brother is also younger than his wife – born on June 21, 1982, he is 36, and five months younger than Kate.

That makes Meghan the oldest of the ‘Fab Four’ – not that you could tell.

The former Suits actress attributes her youthful looks to a mix of exercise, healthy eating, and allowing herself regular treats to keep smiling.

She is known to practice yoga, often with her yoga teacher mum Doria Ragland.

Before she shut down her Instagram page, there were plenty of pictures of Meghan displaying her impressive yoga skills.

She also jogs regularly, though probably only around the palace grounds now that she is one of the most famous women on earth!

She said before the wedding: “If I am thinking about my weight, I will cut out gluten, try to eat vegan, cut back on my beloved wine and perhaps not eat a big bowl of pasta if I have a photo shoot the next day.

“But generally, I think everything is ok in moderation.”

The Duchess makes sure she always has a glass of water on hand.

She said: “The number one, and people always say it but it’s so true – hydrate. Hydrate all the time. Your skin will look better, everything will look really good.”

A secret Meghan divulged while on Suits is her love for coconut oil, which she uses for everything from hair to skin and even cooking.

And her number one beauty tip? “Smile. Everybody looks prettier when they smile.”

After seeing her beaming on her wedding day, we think she might be on to something.
