A Royal Conundrum: Do Kate and William Have a Better Marriage Than Meghan and Harry?

When Meghan Markle officially joined the royal family in May 2018, many people were delighted because finally, Prince Harry had already found his better half. After all, his big brother, Prince William, has long married his soulmate, Kate Middleton – lo and behold the Fab Four was born.

Despite being the A team, naysayers began pitting the couples against each other, with so many people curious about whose marriage is better than the other. A lot of onlookers feel that the Cambridges have a better foundation than the Sussexes.


Prince William believed that his friendship with Kate prior to their marriage was a big boost to their romantic relationship. Many experts indeed have said again and again that being pals first is a good way to establish compatibility and trust, which is more valuable than chemistry and attraction if you’re looking at the long haul.

However, this doesn’t mean the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a more ideal foundation than Meghan and Prince Harry. In fact, you may have friends who immediately got married not long after they started dating. According to science, a couple only needs to make sure that they have respect and trust for each other and that they enjoy each other’s company in order to have a lasting connection.

Meanwhile, there are some who feel that the former ‘Suits’ star and Prince Harry took their relationship to another level faster than Kate and Prince William. Studies have shown that pairs who go out for years before finally settling down have the lowest divorce rates.

However, there are many living proofs that debunk this belief — tying the knot after only a few months of dating but ending up being in love for the rest of their lives. Then, there are some who have been together for years and years but when they become Mr. and Mrs., they immediately divorce.

It is worth noting that no couples are ever the same and the royal lovebirds married each other for their own reasons.

Kate Middleton, Prince William’s Love Story

Kate and Prince William were schoolmates at the University of St. Andrews in 2001 and were actually good friends. They were seeing other people but when they both became available, they gave it a try – legend has it that the Duke of Cambridge fell for her during a fashion show when she modeled for a cause.

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s Love Story

Unlike Prince William, Prince Harry had a lot of girlfriends before meeting Meghan, whom he met in 2016. When the younger royal met the actress in 2016 through a blind date, they immediately clicked.
