“Meghan is very aware that Kate will be Queen; their roles are very clear,” People's source said, while also noting the two just don't have that much in common.
“Meghan doesn’t fit the mould, while Kate was groomed for this."
The source also noted that Meghan was a “fully formed person” when she joined the royal family, whereas Kate got involved with William in college.
Kate and Meghan’s last joint appearance together without any other members of the royal family was at Wimbledon in July. The duchesses showed a united front at the famous tennis match and enjoyed watching the final together.
The main priority for both woman at the moment is taking care of their children. Meghan is currently believed to be on a six-week break with Harry and the couple will be spending their Christmas (and baby Archie’s first) away from Sandringham and with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland instead. The couple’s spokesperson noted the Queen approved of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's decision and that other royal family members have taken years off from the royal holiday festivities to be with their other sides of the family.
