There are different expectations when it comes to the Cambridges and the Sussexes. This explains why these two royal families often approach their royal duties in dissimilar ways.

Meghan Markle versus Kate Middleton

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's Africa tour was followed by millions of people around the world. The same goes for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Pakistan tour.

What many quickly noticed, right off the bat, was that these two tours were different. Even down to what the duchesses wore on their first day.

To kickstart her Africa tour, Meghan Markle arrived at Cape Town wearing a very casual outfit consisting of a white T-shirt, white pants, cream clothes, and overall lowkey look.

Kate Middleton, on the other hand, had a high-key red carpet-worthy welcome as she dazzled in glamorous turquoise blue ombré, shalwar kameez-inspired gown by Catherine Walker with matching pants.

Both ladies looked good, but it's obvious Kate put more effort into ensuring that her outfit made a statement.

The relevance of William and Kate being the future King and Queen

Based on the succession rules, the Cambridges are likely to take the British throne one day after Prince Charles who's the current successor. And this could be a major force behind some of William and Kate's behavior today.

Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams told Express that William and Kate have put a lot of time and effort into their Pakistan tour. Their methods have been more carefully choreographed and this has to do with their status as future King and Queen consort of England.

Obviously William and Kate as the future King and Queen Consort are far more formal than Harry and Meghan.

Fitzwilliams described the Cambridges' tour as sensational as William discussed climate change while Kate focused on the importance of families to give children a better chance at life.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Africa Tour

William and Kate's Pakistan tour was undoubtedly a success but it's likely that Harry and Meghan's Africa tour will be more talked about especially considering that a documentary of their efforts is currently making the rounds.

The documentary isn't just about the Sussexes' hard work in Africa because the royal couple also gave insights into their personal life and struggle.

Regardless of their differences, these two tours had the impact that the royal family hoped it would have. They brought the attention of the world to certain regions and the challenges they face.
