Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton: Which Duchess Really Has More Power?

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are definitely two of the most famous women in the entire world. Everything they do fascinates the mass, and millions of fans look up to them, copy their styles, and stay on top of everything they have going on. Both duchesses have huge roles within the royal family.

Kate will someday be queen, which explains why she is expected to follow the royal rule book at all times. Meghan, on the other hand, seems to get away with just a little more than her sister-in-law. She bends the rules with her outfit and style choices, and she always sticks to what she believes in. Meghan even had a high-profile New York City baby shower before giving birth to Archie Harrison, something that Kate never did. If she did, in fact, have a bridal shower, it was kept a secret from the public, and not a celebrity event with fans and photographers lining up in the streets as they did for Harry’s bride.

So, with all of the differences between them, which duchess really has more power?

Kate has something extremely special and unique to look forward to, as she will one day be the queen consort. This is an honor that only a few people in the world ever get to experience, making Kate pretty lucky. As a future queen; however, Kate is more closely watched than Meghan and must obey the rules at all times. Even Queen Elizabeth makes sure that the spotlight is on Kate as often as possible, as can be seen in this report

Meghan Markle is famous in her own right

Meghan made a name for herself years ago, when she entered the world of acting by taking on a stint as a briefcase model on the game show Deal or No Deal, followed by several small supporting roles before finding her big break in the legal drama Suits. She more than proved that she is a beautiful and talented actress, just one of the many reasons as to why she already had a huge fan base before ever joining the royal family. Although her life has changed drastically in the past few years, Meghan still continues to support her beliefs as a feminist and a humanitarian in addition to her new duties as the Duchess of Sussex. 

Kate Middleton’s style changed more than Meghan Markle’s upon becoming a royal

When we look at photographs of Kate in the years before she married Prince William, it seemed as if she had a casual, yet polished style and she always looked absolutely fabulous. Her long brown hair was often worn in loose waves, and her jewelry was fashionable and modern. After officially becoming the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate steps out in very conservative outfits, her hair styled to perfection, with stunning pieces of jewelry often borrowed from the royal jewelry box. Meghan, on the other hand, is known for adding her own twist to her royal looks, such as with mismatched earrings, and perfectly undone hairstyles.

Which duchess really has more power?

It looks as if Meghan is the more powerful duchess. She has been the focus of people all around the world since she and Harry began their relationship, and she is not showing any signs of slowing down. Since she is not as closely watched as her sister-in-law, she can get away with slightly more, and that’s exactly what she does.

Meghan doesn’t hesitate to voice her opinion, something that we have never seen Kate do. She definitely follows her own list of rules, and she has a bold personality, a characteristic that hasn’t changed since her wedding to Prince Harry. It is because of these traits that we love Meghan so much, and admire everything that she does.
