If body language were to be taken into account, here’s which duchess the queen prefers.

The royal family is no stranger to paparazzi and what it feels like to be under a close eye. British tabloids are notorious for their relentless headlines and scrutiny.

Recently, the public has generated a lot of speculation and discussion on Queen Elizabeth’s relationships with her granddaughters-in-law: Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. Believe it or not, experts are saying the queen’s body language is one of the most telling features of all.

Keep reading to learn more about the dynamics and relationships of Queen Elizabeth, Duchess Kate, and Duchess Meghan.

Queen Elizabeth’s relationship with Kate Middleton

Middleton married Prince William in 2011 at Westminster Abbey. The beautiful wedding was a huge success.

In comparison to Markle, Middleton has had a significant amount of time to get to know Queen Elizabeth and it shows. Duchess Kate has demonstrated to Queen Elizabeth how important motherhood and family are.

Sources speculate that the Duchess of Cambridge’s decisions to spend the Christmas holiday with the royal family at Sandringham reinforces Queen Elizabeth’s favor for Duchess Kate. We can imagine Queen Elizabeth respects and appreciates Middleton’s approach to motherhood and her willingness and persistence to ensure that Queen Elizabeth is active in her great-grandchildren’s lives.

When Queen Elizabeth and Duchess Kate are pictured together, it is no wonder that their body language reflects a positive relationship. Check out this picture of Middleton and Queen Elizabeth in Vernon Park attending a children’s event, and you’ll see what we’re talking about. Those natural smiles and hearty smiles speak volumes.

Queen Elizabeth’s relationship with Meghan Markle

Markle met Prince Harry on a blind date. The two immediately hit it off. Despite their happiness, British tabloids had a field day when the Suits actress first started dating Prince Harry.

The headlines stirred up rumors of scandals and lies and painted Markle in an unflattering light. Eventually, it had gotten so bad that Prince Harry had to take action and have an official statement sent out. Despite the rough start, the couple does appear to be very happy.

In contrast to Duchess Kate, Duchess Meghan is viewed as unconventional and bold. Sometimes, her willingness to break royal protocol gets her into hot water so to speak.

Though the public loves to scrutinize her for this, lately, she has been receiving praise for her offbeat style and decisions. This particular article highlights the issues surrounding Markle’s recent holiday plans and decisions.

It is important to keep in mind Markle and Prince Harry only got married in 2018, so we completely would understand if she isn’t as close to Queen Elizabeth as Duchess Kate is. Regardless, it seems like Duchess Meghan’s relationship with Queen Elizabeth is on the right track.

This infamous photo of the two shows them sharing a laugh together at a ceremony for the Mersey Gateway Bridge. The photo is a testimony to their abilities to get along and enjoy one another’s company. It will be interesting to see how Markle’s relationship with Queen Elizabeth develops over time.

It’s not a competition between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle

Queen Elizabeth is an essential fixture of the royal family. Her valued opinion and actions are always being closely watched by the public.

When it comes to the topic of Queen Elizabeth’s relationships with her granddaughters-in-law it seems like everyone has a say. However, keeping an eye out for details like body language will help you discern the true details of a photograph. When it doubt, take a closer look. As we all know, actions will always speak louder than words.

That said, not every relationship is identical or comparable. The queen’s relationship with Duchess Kate is vastly different than that of Duchess Meghan’s for two reasons: Queen Elizabeth has known the Duchess of Cambridge longer and Duchess Kate is the future queen consort.
