Kate spent 10 years preparing for her role as a duchess and later the Princess of Wales during her decade-long courtship with Prince William. Since the pair married, the former Duchess of Cambridge prioritized representing the monarchy even when it's painful. The Royal Observer previously reported Kate struggled with her September walkabout because she was forced to be reunited with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

"Catherine later admitted to a senior royal that, such was the ill feeling between the two couples, the joint walkabout was one of the hardest things she's ever had to do," Robert Jobson wrote in Our King: Charles III: The Man and the Monarch Revealed.

Since their September appearance, the Sussexes have continued to throw jabs at Kate.

Over the years, Kate has been celebrated for her relatability and love of affordable brands, but Meghan used her docuseries to depict Kate as rigid.

"I was a hugger and have always been a hugger. I didn’t realize that that was really jarring for a lot of Brits," Meghan said in reference to her first impressions of Kate. "I guess I started to understand very quickly that the formality on the outside, carried through on the inside."
