How Meghan Markle Is Just the Sister-in-Law That Kate Middleton Needs

Let’s face it: royal life certainly can’t be easy by any means. As a member of the royal family, Kate Middleton’s life is practically an open book. Fans around the world, as well as the news media, scrutinize everything that she does. The Duchess of Cambridge is constantly being photographed, and can’t do things that most people take for granted, such as going to a coffee shop to spend some time alone or browsing her favorite department store without being followed.

Before her brother-in-law, Prince Harry got married, Kate was able to talk to people such as her mother, Carole, and her sister, Pippa Middleton Matthews, as well as close friends. However, now that Meghan Markle is officially Kate’s sister-in-law, many people are coming to the realization that having her in the family is just what Kate needs.

Meghan is easy to talk to

Being extremely easy to talk to is just one of the many qualities that make people love Meghan as muech as they do! She is the perfect person to sit down and have a conversation with, whether it be about something serious or some lighthearted chatter. Any time that the royal spotlight gets to be too much for Kate, she can always call or meet up with Meghan for some bonding time.

They can seek advice from each other

Meghan and Kate share many similar experiences, and they both know that they can always go to each other for advice. Being the wives of two of the most high-profile men in the world, each one of them can be truly understanding as to any issues that the other is having. Kate can always go to Meghan to kick back for a bit and forget about the pressures of day-to-day life, and even to blow off steam if she needs to. What a great friend and family member for Kate to have!

They share a lot of the same interests

Although Kate and Meghan have their own distinct personalities, they still share a lot of the same interests that they can bond over. The two duchesses are said to have a passion for cooking, and they are both supposedly excellent at it. In addition, they were seen attending Wimbledon together, so a love of sports is another thing that the two women share. Their similar interests will allow them to connect more as time goes on, strengthening their friendship and allowing them to be as close as possible!

Meghan comes from a completely different background 

With her American upbringing, Meghan comes from a completely different background than Kate does. This allows her to put an innovative spin on royal life, something that is likely a breath of fresh air for Kate. As the wife of a future king, Kate is expected to adhere to royal protocol at all times. Meghan has a little more leniency, and it is surely a nice change for Kate to be able to spend some time with her new sister-in-law who just loves to bend the rules!

Their children will be close friends

There is no doubt that the Cambridge children are excited about the upcoming arrival of their new cousin. They will most likely want to spend as much time as possible with Baby Sussex, and Kate and Meghan will have the wonderful opportunity of seeing their children grow up together. The kids can learn things from each other, make and share memories, and overall, just have a wonderful time! Looks like even the little ones can’t wait for the new baby to be born!

Having Meghan in the family is a great thing for Kate. Now, she has someone by her side whenever she needs to give her support, encouragement, and advice, and we are sure that Kate can do the same for her in return!
