Do you wish to become a prince or princess of your own fairytale story? Becoming a real-life Cinderella, Snow White, or Belle is almost close to impossible, but not for Kate Middleton, or should we say Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, the Countess of Strathearn, and the Baroness of Carrickfergus. Becoming a princess and a member of the royal family of United Kingdom will soon be possible for the American actress, Meghan Markle.
Prince Charles of Wales is the heir apparent to the British throne and the eldest child of Queen Elizabeth II. He has two sons with the late Princess Diana of Wales. Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, the Earl of Strathearn, and the Baron of Carrickfergus is the eldest son and the second in the line of succession to the British throne. Prince Harry of Wales, on the other hand, is the youngest son and the fifth, or soon to be the sixth, in the line of succession to the British throne.
It was a dream come true for Kate Middleton when she got married to Prince William in 2011, as they exchanged their wedding vows and promised a love that will last forever. On May 19, 2018, Meghan Markle will soon experience the same magic that Kate felt during her royal wedding – full of love and fairytale-like stories.
However, there are people predicting that unlike Prince William and Kate Middleton's long-lasting relationship, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's relationship will soon come to an end because of certain differences. Here is a list compiling eight relationship issues showing that Prince Harry and Meghan will soon split and eight relationship goals showing that Prince William and Kate have a love that will last forever.
16 Prince Harry & Meghan: Princess Diana Would Disapprove Of Meghan?
Can you believe this? According to the reports, the alternative energy healer, Simone Simmons, was able to talk to Princess Diana beyond the grave just to voice out her opinion about Prince Harry's fiancée, Meghan Markle. However, Simmons said that Meghan should be worried.
According to this self-proclaimed psychic and close friend of Princess Diana, Simmons is being able to speak to her Royal Highness Princess Diana just like when she was still alive. They talk almost about everything and anything under the sun, including her sons' choice of lovers.
Simmons said that Princess Diana "adores" Kate because of her grace and beauty, thinking that Kate is perfect for Prince William. However, Meghan did not get the same compliment as per Simmons. According to her self-acclaimed psychic connection with the late princess, Meghan is not the ideal woman for Prince Harry.
15 Prince William & Kate: Friendship Between Families
The public believed that Kate is just a commoner married to a royal, but that is just half of the truth. Although Kate and the Middletons are considered to be commoners, they are a privileged and wealthy family. The Middleton family is a simple family that manages their own businesses to become self-made millionaires.
Kate, coming from a simple yet loving family, knows how to make a good impression to her royal in-laws and that is all that matters. Most importantly, Kate shows her true colors— sophisticated, educated, and a woman of dignity because that is how her parents raised her.
Kate is not alone because her family knows how to give proper honor to the royal family as well and they also made a good impression. In return, the royal family also respects the Middletons; therefore, establishing a good friendship between families.
14 Prince Harry & Meghan: She Is American
For most people under the British throne, citizenship matters! Although Queen Elizabeth II may not think that this is a real relationship issue because Her Majesty does not see that mixed race will be a problem inside the palace, the people and Britain's tabloids are sensationalizing the fact that Meghan is an American.
Born and raised in California, Meghan is the first American to be officially engaged to a member of the royal family and eventually tie the knot. However, Meghan is not the first American to be ever married to a member royal family. In fact, King Edward VIII also married the American divorcee, Wallis Simpson. Unfortunately, their relationship sparked a constitutional crisis, requiring the King to renounce the throne.
Aside from this, people think that Meghan will not be able to follow the royal's culture because she has a different one. Meghan may even be denied the right to vote in the U.S. in accordance with the political rule of the royal family, which could result in Meghan yearning to go back to her home country.
13 Prince William & Kate: Keeping The Romance Alive
While people are busy spying on Meghan, Prince William and Kate continuously stay in love with each other because of their one golden rule—keep the romance alive! Marriage, even for royals, is somehow one of the most difficult stages of the relationship. This is the stage wherein you will be more mature and responsible while making sure that your love to your spouse remains unchanged.
Marriage has been good to Prince William and Kate. Yes, arguments and disagreements are unavoidable, even for royal couples, and Prince William and Kate are quite honest about that. However, that is a normal situation and in order to keep their romance alive, they try to get through the issue before it results in a bigger problem.
Of course, romantic dinners and dates should never be ignored. The royal couple enjoys occasional romantic dates just to catch up and spend time together. They find ways in keeping their romance alive and on fire!
12 Prince Harry & Meghan: Religion Matters
Meghan is more than just an American with different race and culture. As per the reports published in British tabloids and newspapers and news websites, Meghan is also a Catholic and somehow, that matters. Aside from her culture and citizenship, Meghan's religion is also viewed as a relationship issue that will make their relationship fragile.
According to some credible sources, Prince Harry was forbidden to have a relationship or get married to a Catholic girl until 2015. This is because the Queen is the head of the Protestant Church of England. That will be a great display of conflict for the royal family.
Fortunately, this regulation rule was erased to remove any bias and religious discrimination in the royal order. However, there are still people who think that Meghan's religion will become a hindrance to the couple's happiness.
11 Prince William & Kate: Those Sweet Glances
Do you notice how Prince William and Kate look at each other? They have this love in their eyes whenever they glance and look at each other. They also have those sweet smiles whenever their eyes meet screaming that they are deeply in love with each other even after years of marriage.
For instance, during the Order of the Garter Service, Prince William could not help to sneak a smile to his lovely wife as Kate smiled back as if they are already talking just by their smiles. That is not all, of course! There are countless candid photos of Prince William looking and glancing at his wife as if he is admiring everything about Kate.
Most importantly, the royal couple knows how to make each other laugh despite the fact that they are in a relationship for a long time. Their feeling just won't fade, proving that they have the best fairytale-like love story.
10 Prince Harry & Meghan: American-ish, Not Royal-ish Fashion
Everyone knows how Kate loves sophisticated fashion. Fashion is running through Kate's veins whenever she dresses up appropriately. She is one of the greatest fashion inspirations, not just for the British people, but also for the people all over the world. In short, Kate dresses just like any royal woman would be.
On the other hand, Meghan has no taste in royal-ish fashion. Since she is American, she wears comfortable clothes, but still wears them with class. She stayed true to her casual style featuring blouses, flats, and ripped jeans. In all honesty, nothing is really wrong with how she rocks her clothes, but then again, she is a royal fiancée, which means that sometimes, or should we say most of the times, she should follow Kate's fashion sense just to maintain a royal-ish vibe.
9 Prince William & Kate: Graduates From the Same School
Yes, Kate is considered to be a commoner, but her parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, managed to send her to prestigious schools with the help of their inheritance from a wealthy wool merchant from Yorkshire, dating back a long time. Kate went to the St. Andrew's Prep School and Marlborough College, prestigious schools with high tuition fees.
Who would forget that Prince William and Kate met when they were still students? Kate went to St. Andrew's Prep School, the same prep school where Prince William went. Those days marked the beginning of their fairytale-like story— a prince and a pauper met and fell in love or a strong, educated woman met the prince charming of her life. Imagine how many years they were in a relationship before getting married, hence making their love last a lifetime.
8 Prince Harry & Meghan: Etiquette-Breaker
If Kate is a classy, sophisticated, educated, and elegant woman, Meghan is the opposite. If Kate dresses accordingly to the royal code, Meghan sticks to her comfy clothes. If Kate is a model of royal perfectness, Meghan is a big "no" for the public. If Kate follows the upper-class etiquette, Meghan breaks them!
For instance, she is often spotted crossing her legs at the knee, which is very wrong for a royally involved person. Just like the Queen, Princess Diana, and the Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan should practice sitting with her legs and knees kept together. Luckily, Kate seems to be teaching Meghan how to sit like a royal. Hopefully, Kate will succeed in teaching Meghan the proper ways on how to be suited to a member of the royal family.
7 Prince William & Kate: Adorable, But "NOT PDA" Embraces
Do you notice how genuine Prince William and Kate's affections and gestures are towards each other? They are the symbol of love and care. No, they do not overly express a public display of affection wherever they go. Instead, they give each other sweet hugs whenever they feel like they need to. Everyone seems to love their cute affections.
Instead of clasping hands at important royal events (just like how Meghan is doing), they walk with Prince William assisting his lovely wife or just simply walk without holding each other's hands in public. They are conservative, which is why their cute embraces in public are not considered as annoying PDA. Sometimes, they just can't help giving each other sweet embraces when they're happy, excited, or laughing.
6 Prince Harry & Meghan: Meghan Loves Publicity
Meghan is an American actress, which means she is exposed in public. She loves publicity and she loves social media— Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter— you name it, she has it! She also loves selfies, of course, because that is how it works in the showbiz industry!
However, this will not work in the royal family. She needs to surrender her social media accounts once they are married. Everything should be private and discreet when it comes to relationships and every little thing concerning the royal family. Meghan broke this royal rule of privacy.
Meghan even wholeheartedly addressed and talked about her relationship publicly in an interview with Vanity Fair. People speculated that public declaration will just weaken the foundation of their relationship.
5 Prince William & Kate: Keeping Things In Private
While Prince Harry and Meghan are publicly declaring their love for each other, the royal couple, Prince William and Kate, are busy keeping their relationship and marriage as private as possible. Do you know why they avoid holding hands in public and showing off PDA? You are about to find out.
The lovely couple just needs to stay as private as they can be. They want to avoid any cameras catching a glimpse of their affection. Staying private is important in a relationship. By posting on social media and enjoying publicity, you are only making your own gossip. Prince William and Kate would not want that, so keeping their relationship private is important. This is the key to making their relationship stronger.
4 Prince Harry & Meghan: Meghan's Long Family History
Meghan is more than just an American sweetheart and actress because she has a long family history. Kate's family has a long history of perseverance, wealth, and business, but Meghan's family history is quite different. In return, this makes the people uncomfortable with Meghan's intentions to marry Prince Harry.
According to Time magazine, Meghan's mother's neighborhood is far from the royal standards because the neighborhood is quite known for gangs, chaos, and misdemeanors. A series of crimes and other tragic events have happened near her home, making tabloids and newspapers create some racial comments about Meghan, which made the prince unhappy.
Just recently, Meghan's future sister-in-law, Darlene Blount, was arrested for assaulting Meghan's brother on New Year's Eve in Oregon.
3 Prince William & Kate: The Royal Wedding Vows
Who could forget the remarkable Royal Wedding of 2011? That was the day when Prince William and Kate exchanged their vows, promising a love that would last forever. More than just the grandiose, majestic, and flamboyant wedding, the venue was flourished with fairytale-like magic fairy dust, screaming that their relationship would be always and forever.
Of course, it was not just the kiss that made the marriage official, but also the way they said their wedding vows that will withstand the test of time. Their strong foundation of the boyfriend-girlfriend relationship promised that this wedding would be more than just a ceremony, but a promise that they would love each other unconditionally. The way they looked at each other during their wedding was priceless.
2 Prince Harry & Meghan: Meghan Is Divorced
Kate is still considered to be the oldest bride in the royal wedding history, not counting Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, who was 57 years old when she was married to Prince Charles of Wales, as his second wife after Princess Diana of Wales. However, the Duchess of Cornwall was a divorcee way back then. Now, another royal wedding is set for May of 2018 but that does not make Meghan the oldest bride because she is in a similar situation as the Duchess of Cornwall was.
Meghan is divorced! Meghan was married to the American music producer, Trevor Engleson, in 2014. This should not be an issue, but people still can't accept that their beloved prince will marry a divorcee. At least, the Duchess of Cornwall is the second wife of Prince Charles, making their marriage more acceptable. Calm down people— Prince Harry will become sixth in line to the throne so this should not matter anymore.
1 Prince William & Kate: Blessed With Children
Speaking of the line to the throne, the royal couple, Prince William and Kate, are not just blessed with love, passion, and romance, but they are also blessed with lovely children. They have two children and are expecting another royal baby in April of 2018, just a month before Prince Harry and Meghan will get married.
Prince William and Kate welcomed their firstborn, and the third in the line of succession to the British throne, on July 22, 2013. He is the sweet Prince George of Cambridge. On May 2, 2015, another royal baby met the world and this time, it's a princess! Princess Charlotte of Cambridge is the fourth in the line of succession to the throne.
As of this writing, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting another royal baby to add to their royal family.
