KEY POINTS

  • Lady Colin Campbell said Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were not happy with the praise the Cambridges received for their James Bond movie premiere appearance
  • Campbell said Markle just lacks the natural ability and inner glow compared to her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton
  • The royal biographer added that Markle was never a star, while Middleton showed what real stardom is at the "No Time to Die" premiere

Royal biographer Lady Colin Campbell addressed the comparison between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and Prince William and Kate Middleton following their recent sightings.

In a new Q&A video uploaded to her YouTube channel, Campbell addressed the various observations of the netizens between the Sussexes and Cambridges. One netizen asked if the stark difference between the Sussexes' appearance in New York and the Cambridges' "stunning" attendance at the James Bond movie premiere would possibly go unnoticed to Prince Harry and Markle. "Fits to be tied is an understatement," the netizen added, and Campbell laughed as though she was agreeing with what the netizen said.

"Well, I gather that Meg is fit to be tied. I gather that she is disconsolate, enraged, and eating up all the cement," Campbell said. "And Harry isn't best pleased  either, so I am informed." She then agreed that the contrast between the two royal couples in their recent outings is "obvious."

"You know, actions speak louder than words. And what I find entertaining is how Harry and Meghan's people and Harry and Meghan, themselves, still are trying to sell the lie that one of the reasons why they had to leave was that the royal family was jealous of their outstanding success and jealous and nervous of the fact that they were going to steal the limelight from the rest of them.  Well, we have seen in the last few days a complete demonstration of how farcical and nonsensical that notion was," she added.

Another netizen named shadish 124 pointed out how Middleton "is perfectly comfortable" walking with the 95-year-old Queen or her long-legged husband and matching their pace. For the netizen, the future queen consort "can stand still and radiate confidence and peacefulness" no matter who she's with.

The netizen went on and compared Middleton to her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Sussex. The user pointed out how Markle tends to strike out her own security parameter to shake hands with others or push others aside to hug strangers or allegedly "pretend to have engaging conversations with invisible people for the benefit of the camera lens."

"Very well observed," Campbell commented. "You know, serenity cannot be faked very readily. True-blue, as it used to be called, is very eloquent without you opening up your mouth. You don't need to have a voice to be heard. When you are true, you only need a voice to be heard when you need to sell a clock of credits if there is such a word."

Campbell went on to say that it was the reason Markle needed her voice. For her, the Duchess of Sussex lacks the "natural ability" and "inner glow." She noted that it's the reason why Markle was never a star. But Middleton showed when she appeared at the premiere of "No Time to Die" what "true stardom is really all about."

Although Campbell wasn't really impressed with the Sussexes' New York City trip, many praised them for their PDA-packed outing. Several netizens said Prince Harry and Markle's sweet display of affection was like watching a fairytale.

"So many people lack love. Glad #HarryandMeghan found each other," one  wrote.

"It’s crazy how this couple has made me feel like I’m watching a fairytale. It’s what we dream of as young girls and yearn for as we grow up. It’s simple. It’s affection, it’s mutual respect and admiration. It’s love. It's them," another person added.
