Last Saturday, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton participated in their first solo engagement as they attended the Wimbledon women’s final together.
The event not only gave royal fans another chance to see the duchesses interact; it also shed light on what their relationship as in-laws is like.
Although Meghan is quickly adjusting to royal life, she “very much let Kate take the lead” at the event, seasoned royal photographer Mark Stewart told People.
“There was no rivalry,” he added. “It shows how well Meghan has adapted as she is aware that Kate will be Queen one day and her position is different.”
Markle also appeared to be checking Middleton’s face for pointers on what to do and how to act, body language expert Judy James revealed to Daily Mail.
The Duchess of Cambridge underwent the same transition period into royal life seven years ago; she’s the perfect guide for Meghan.
Etiquette and formalities aside, the pair genuinely seemed to be enjoying themselves.
Markle and Middleton were seen cheering on the players, chatting, and sharing laughs together as they watched the match from the front row. Their merriment was “mutual and genuine,” James added to the Mail.
Meghan and Kate had their first royal engagement in February for the Royal Foundation Forum, which Prince Harry and Prince William also attended.
However, the first time they stepped out together was for Christmas 2017, when they joined the rest of the royal family for a church service.
We hope to see a lot more Meghan-Kate events in the royal agenda.
