Why is Kate more popular than Meghan?

Kate has sailed to the top of the popularity contestant, and experts think they might know why.

American royal commentator Christopher Andersen said: “Kate has become an even bigger superstar without ever setting foot here.

“She embodies everything Americans expect in a princess destined to become Queen — beauty, grace, regal bearing and the ability to connect.”

“Whatever royal scandal is making headlines, the Duchess of Cambridge sails above it all.”

However, royal expert Kinsey Schofield said: “Meghan wanted to be the Queen of America. But she’s never been less popular.”

The royal tour is thought to be a worry for Prince Harry and Meghan, according to a whistleblower in a report in Australian mag New Idea.

The source said: “They don’t want the Cambridges coming onto their turf and stealing their thunder.

“They’ve made a lot of noise about their own philanthropic endeavours, but nothing compares so far to the success of William’s new Earthshot initiative.”
