Kate Middleton and Prince William allegedly copied Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s tour.

Last month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited South Africa. Weeks after that, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge kicked off their Pakistan tour.

According to New Idea, Prince William and Middleton have been focusing on areas similar to what Prince Harry and Markle did when they were in South Africa, like conservation and women’s education. The comparison convinced some to believe that Prince William and Middleton are copying Prince Harry and Markle.

“These are a lot of the areas, fairly politicised areas - conservation, children - they are sort of the things Meghan and Harry were doing in Africa and of course when they were visiting Australia and New Zealand,” royal expert Angela Mollard said in the podcast “Royals.”

“It’s to be expected that they will overlap in terms of the things they are interested in… but it’s interesting what they’ve done so far does seem to resemble a lot of what the Sussex’s did when they were on their recent tour.”

However, Mollard said that the similarities were just coincidence and was not a purposeful move from the Cambridges. He explained that the causes that Prince William and Middleton promoted during their tour in Africa are the things that are necessary in the country.

“I think it’s probably more that those are the issues of importance to Pakistan and it just so happens those are a lot of the issues that are affecting Africa as well. So, I think it’s probably just a coincidence,” Mollard added.

Prince William was criticized during their tour for failing to help Middleton. The royal couple arrived at an evening reception in the traditional rickshaw. However, many were disappointed that the future king did not open the vehicle’s door for his wife. He just climbed down the vehicle and waited for Middleton to join him.

Also, during the reception, the future king and queen were reportedly snubbed when six Pakistan ministers walked out from the event. According to royal correspondent Johnny Dymond, they were annoyed at their place in the gathering, so they left.
