REVEALED: Kate Middleton has quality ‘Meghan Markle lacks’ – and the Queen LOVES it
KATE Middleton has character traits that Meghan Markle lacks and the Queen is a firm admirer, a royal expert has claimed.
Kate Middleton recently returned to royal duties after giving birth to Prince Louis in spring and she is now gearing up for Christmas with the Queen at Sandringham. Meghan Markle, meanwhile, is preparing for her second royal christmas after marrying Prince Harry in May. Commentators regularly compare the two women but royal reporter Ashley Pearson believes that the Queen sees qualities in Kate that cannot be seen in Meghan.
In 2016 Amazon Prime documentary William & Kate: The Journey, she reveals the reasons why the Queen is “very fond” of Kate.
“She likes her middle-class values,” says Pearson.
She adds: “She likes that she’s close to her family.
The observation sets the Duchess of Cambridge apart from Meghan Markle – who remains distant with her father and step-sister.
She is also more daring with her fashion sense and, unlike Kate, thrives in the limelight as a former actress.
What is more, Ms Pearson claims that the Queen wanted to see Kate’s traits in her son’s wives, Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson.
“Kate tows the company line all the time, and that’s something that Queen Elizabeth very much wanted from Diana – which didn’t happen.
“She wanted [it] from Sarah Ferguson – which didn’t happen.”
She also reveals that royal insiders have indicated Kate is a “special favourite” of the Queen’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, so that the future Duchess could understand what it is like to be part of the royal family before her marriage.
