Carole Middleton is worried about Meghan Markle’s popularity and how the Middleton brand is about to take a hit. In fact, the media can’t stop talking about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement, leaving Kate Middleton’s mother rather concerned about the future of her own family and the public spotlight.
Things just haven’t been going well for the Middleton family in recent months. Now that Meghan Markle is in the spotlight, Kate Middleton and her pregnancy have taken a back seat. To make matters worse, the media have completely forgotten about Kate’s siblings, Pippa and James Middleton. This has Carole worried, as no one seems to be paying attention to the Middleton family anymore.
With Meghan Markle making headlines on almost a daily basis, there’s no doubt that Kate Middleton is concerned about the future. She’s not used to sharing the public spotlight with anyone but now she has no choice but to stand next to Meghan Markle, smile, wave and pretend that the two sister-in-laws get along. If she doesn’t, the royal fans will think that the Duchess is jealous of Meghan and her popularity. After all, Meghan already has a huge advantage over Kate Middleton. Because of her Hollywood experience, Meghan does a better job of speaking to the press. She’s also well traveled and very passionate about her charity work.
Unless Kate Middleton steps up her workload, she’ll end up standing in Meghan’s shadow. That’s the last place she wants to be. Right now there’s no way that Kate will be able to compete with Meghan for attention, especially if Prince Harry’s girlfriend hits the ground running. And that’s exactly what Meghan plans on doing the moment she begins her official royal engagements with Harry.
She has already expressed a keen interest in learning all about Harry’s causes and charity work and wants to meet as many people as possible all throughout Great Britain. For someone like Carole Middleton, this is absolutely troubling as it will make her daughter look like she’s not as eager to work like Meghan.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expected to marry at Windsor Castle in May of 2018. An exact wedding date is yet to be announced. Meanwhile, Kate Middleton is expected to give birth sometime in April. In the meantime, don’t forget to check back with CDL for all the latest news and updates on the entire royal family right here.
