Meghan Markle has constantly been criticized for seeking too much media attention. But it has now been revealed that Kate Middleton was maybe even worse.

On the online forum site Quora, one royal fan couldn’t believe how the public forgot the fact that the Duchess of Cambridge waited 10 long years to marry Prince William.

David Byrne, a follower of the royal family, said that Middleton’s royal wedding in 2011 was a much bigger affair than Prince Harry and Markle’s nuptials last year. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge invited a lot of foreign dignitaries and politicians to their special day.

“Sure, she picked a future husband and role in society that was going to allow her to slip quietly into minimal attention. What a load of garbage, she waited for 10 years for her boyfriend to ask her to accompany him to be the eventual King and Queen (Consort) of the Commonwealth of 52 countries. If people think that Catherine doesn’t seek attention, or like the attention, she gets in her position, they are completely deluded,” he said.

Kimberly Klaus, a development coach, said that both royal couples receive media attention. But Prince William and Middleton have learned the art of avoiding it. Since Prince Harry and Markle have only been married for a year, the media is still interested in publishing all kinds of stories about them.

“In 20 years, Meghan and Harry will barely make the news. By necessity William and Catherine will be drawn into the spotlight more and more, as will their children, but not because they crave the attention,” she said.

Meanwhile, another royal fan seemingly came to Middleton’s defense. He said that the Duchess of Cambridge didn’t need to seek attention because she was used to it. Markle, on the other hand, enjoyed being in the limelight as an actress. And once her career was over, she figured out a way to still be in the limelight and that’s through attracting the media’s attention.
