Some even pointed out that Meghan Markle is much better at handling the crowd and believe Kate can learn a lot from her sister-in-law.
Meghan is the best princess since Diana .. she works and her charities are soaring , look at Kate’s always in the red ..— shelly (@shellhun44166) September 11, 2019
she’s not very good at public speaking! Meghan is far more polished and professional!— Annabell.Marnell (@AnnabellMarnell) September 11, 2019
Many defended Middleton
But there wasn't only criticism, many royal fans praised Kate for her initiative and believe she did a great job.
Beautiful Kate and look at how the kids are all focused on what she's saying ❤ Children love her and she loves them 🤗— JennieM (@JennieM53937815) September 10, 2019
