Kate Middleton and Prince William married in 2011, after a decade-long courtship and Kate’s slow and careful entry into the Royal Family. Meghan Markle, like Kate, came from a non-aristocratic background to marry into the Royal Family in 2018 when she wed Prince Harry. The entry of a new sister-in-law into the family could be the reason why the Duchess of Cambridge’s confidence in public seems to have soared recently, as she takes on her royal engagements with gusto and plenty of smiles.

I think thats what she’s very good at.”

She continued: “I noticed recently her confidence levels do seem to be increasing.

“I think she’s taking a different role in the Royal Family generally.

“I think, with Meghan coming into the Royal Family, she’s no longer the newbie

“She was the one that wasn’t royal that married into the Royal Family and now Meghan’s done the same thing and Meghan is the newbie.

“I think that’s perhaps elevated Kate’s confidence levels a bit.”

Ms James continued: “Kate seems to be taking a much more dominant, maybe matriarchal role in the Royal Family anyway, and I can understand why that is.”

She explained: “The Queen clearly isn’t getting any younger and is stepping back a little bit.

“I don’t see Camilla ever wanting to take up the reins of being that matriarchal figure in the Royal Family.

“I think she would probably do anything to avoid that, so it has fallen to Kate to a certain extent.

“She’s working it really, really well.”

Addressing rumours that the Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex do not get along, Ms James said that, as sisters-in-law, the pair should not be expected to be best friends.

She added: “They’re probably never going to be the best of friends and their body language tends to suggest that.”

Meghan Markle joined the Royal Family in 2018, after meeting Prince Harry on a blind date in 2016.

The news leaked four months later, when a source at the time told the Sunday Express that Prince Harry was happier than he had been “for many years” and was “besotted” with Meghan.

However, when Harry learned that the news had gone public, his words to Meghan indicated that she would never get her privacy back again.

Royal exerpt Angela Mollard, sepaking on podcast “Royals” said: “He apparently turned to Meghan and said: ‘Things will never be the same again.’”
