The Windsors, as one of the most famous European royal families, are always in the spotlight, especially the younger generation of Princes and Duchesses. Ever since joining the royal family, Meghan Markle is feeling no lack of public attention. After all, she is wife to one of the most favorite representatives of this family, an expectant mother, and the number one “protocol breaker.”
Considering that Duchesses Kate and Meghan come from very different backgrounds, the comparisons are inevitable. Thus, conservative Middleton has already become one of the symbols of the royal family – she has developed her unique royal style over the years. Some claim that her looks are inspired by 1940s aristocracy.
Although Meghan has drastically changed her habits, the fact that she doesn’t miss a chance to experiment with fashion makes her seems more diverse, vibrant, and daring. Her style can be compared to that of the Golden Age of Hollywood, wouldn’t you agree?
Another criterion of comparison between the Duchesses is their behavior in public. And here, people are assisted by experts in body language. It was only a year ago since that memorable Christmas when Markle was honored to spend the holidays among the Windsors, but a lot has changed since then.
Body language expert Patti Wood pointed out that the Duchess of Sussex started presenting herself with more confidence and grace. You can see it in the way she walks and the fact that she keeps her head higher than she used to. She is no longer so dependent on her husband, although the bond between them has only grown stronger.
The decision to host a holiday for children, undisguised pleasure from the abundant public’s attention, and the exaggerated demonstration of pregnancy also indicate that Meghan Markle started to feel like an independent representative of the monarchy, not just the Prince’s "plus one." Nevertheless, one of the Sussexes’ recent public engagements revealed the flip side. It appears that Meghan went back to her habit of clinging to her husband with both hands, appearing more vulnerable than she is.
Judi James thinks such a gesture of ingratiation, which is quite common among loving couples, is also Markle's subtle move. By holding her spouse’s hand, Meghan emphasized that he is the leader in their family, and at the same time made a sensible bid to gain the public’s acceptance by showing her respect to his authority.
The fact that Meghan Markle skillfully combines her old acting and newly acquired royal habits is understandable. It would be difficult for any person to adjust to a life so different. How sincere is her recent tendency to cling to her husband, in your opinion?
