Kate and William set for US trip to rival Sussex’s as they offer ‘sheer sartorial glamour’


The Prince and Princess of Wales are embarking on their first visit to the United States since Harry and Meghan moved stateside and made a number of damaging revelations about the monarchy.

With both the Wales’s and the Sussex’s in the US at the same time Kate and William are hoping to improve the image of the Royal Family across the pond.

Royal commentators have suggested that the Royal Family have not diminished in their popularity in the US following the Sussex’s move out there.

Kinsey Schofield told Express.co.uk that “American royal watchers are absolutely crazy about the Prince and Princess of Wales.”

However, it is evident that the two royal couples represent entirely different lifestyles and wield their popularity in different ways.

Amanda Foreman wrote for in The Sunday Times: “William and Kate are trading in yesterday’s currency.

“Leaving aside sheer sartorial glamour, where Kate is unmatched, the Waleses offer the world a fixed basket of virtues: duty, probity, discipline, decency, discretion, loyalty, and commitment.”

Despite this ‘basket of virtues’, they are qualities which are valued by some while the Sussex’s portray ‘virtues’ valued by others.

Ms Foreman added: “It is a worthy one, to be sure, and also totally — fatally — in step with the values of the over-40 crowd: Baby Boomers, Generation X, and some millennials.

While the Prince and Princess of Wales openly talk about issues such as mental health, violence against women and girls, and LGBTQ+ rights, the Sussex’s embody what are seen as more ‘modern’ values.

Their step away from the archaic institution of the Monarchy to live in their new home in Montecito, California only highlights the divide between the couples.

Harry and Meghan said that their £11m mansion made them “walk in and go…joy. And exhale. And calm. It’s healing. You feel free.”

The royal family continue to perform their constitutional roles which while being modernised, are different to the Sussex’s roles as celebrities.

A Palace insider told Page Six said that William and Kate “are working on behalf of others – versus being a celebrity.

“They were always famous, but now they’ve reached a different stage in their public lives – they’re different types of figures.”
