The One Major Difference Between How Kate Middleton And Meghan Markle Have Their Pictures Taken

While Kate Middleton has been known to us as Prince William's wife for a few years now, Meghan Markle has officially attained the royal status on the 19th of May after marrying Prince Harry. So, it's no surprise that being linked to two of the most powerful brothers in Britain has put these women right in the middle of the spotlight.

The cameras are always flashing whenever members of the British monarchy are in public. So, it's interesting to see that Meghan and Kate have a different approach when it comes to this area. Their wedding pictures are no exception.

As for Kate's relationship with the camera, James described it as "more passive."
