It seems that Kate and William are absolutely not the role models for Meghan and Harry

The couple has broken away from Prince William and Kate Middleton –and they are keen on carving out their own Sussex lane where they can concentrate on projects of their passion and charities outside of the stuffy tradition of the royals.

Prince Harry has always been stubborn –and Meghan has brought her own flair to the British Royal family –from her American upbringing to her mixed-race background and work ethic– people cannot seem to get over how different the Duchess of Sussex approaches royal life.

However, Prince William and his wife Kate have set a model of what it implies to be royal – so why don’t Prince Harry and Meghan look to them for guidance?


Prince William (Duke of Cambridge) and Kate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge) are widely loved — but they are very traditional and they have even been accused of having light programs with respect to charities and events.

Though the Duke and Duchess of Sussex respect the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge–they prefer to approach royal life in a way that will give them both happiness and a sense of fulfillment.


Though the Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge are friendly – they simply do not have so much in common. The birth of Baby Sussex might alter their dynamic–but for now, they aren't very close.

Princess Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell told Us Weekly,

“They are different women with different roles from different cultures. Kate knows that Meghan is no threat to her, and Meghan is mature enough to realize that her role is vastly different from Kate’s.”

A royal insider told People, “It was only going to work until they married — and it went on a while longer than perhaps was originally thought.”

Though the public was anticipating a Fab Four dynamic during the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, it didn’t really turn out to be so.

A source told People,

“It’s a shame. There was power in that unity and great strength in the foursome, but I see why it is happening. There is always that tension: trying to do the PR thing and then realizing that they are just real people. They want their own place and their own things.”


From her choice of keeping her birth plan private to her decision to speak out about her views on feminism and education —Meghan Markle has chosen to create a path in the Royal Family that fits with her personality and her passions.

Regrettably, the British media has not made things easy for Meghan. From the trolling to the rumors in the press – people can’t seem to get over how different the duchess is.

However, the primary reason why Meghan is getting so much backlash is that she is not a “yes person.”


Meghan and Harry have officially separated from Kate and William, breaking up their joint “court” at Kensington Palace by forming two separate offices. The Princes are said to not be as close as they once were.

Harry and Meghan have since moved out of London to Windsor Castle’s Frogmore Cottage – about 25 miles away – and even launched their own Instagram handle, 'sussexroyal'.


Harper’s Bazaar reports that Harry and Meghan are “not looking to other family members, or their teams, for guidance” but only turn to the Queen and Prince Charles for advice.

A close associate of the Sussexes told Royal reporter Omid Scobie,

"Let’s be clear about one thing: Any decision the couple makes about their future will be made by themselves for themselves. Harry and Meghan have always wanted to reach people on a global level and that is the only thing that’s motivating them. Aside from the Queen and Prince Charles, they’re not looking to other family members, or their teams, for guidance".

But the source emphasized that Meghan and Harry have Prince William’s full backing for their future plans.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to be considering a move to Africa for two to three years as part of a major international role, after the birth of their first baby.

Although followers of the royal family may not find out any details about the birth of the royal child for a while. Kensington Palace made an announcement this week that the royal couple will be keeping the birth plans private.

A statement from the palace reads:

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby.

"Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private.

"The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family."
