Kate's 'stunning' Bond premiere look was 'very hard' for Meghan as Duchess 'upstaged'

According to a royal commentator, Meghan Markle would have found the Duchess of Cambridge’s red carpet appearance difficult, as it threatened to “upstage” her recent visit to New York. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex conducted a 3-day tour of the city, in a trip that marked their official return to the world stage. Meanwhile, Kate impressed royal fans after she joined Prince William in an “absolutely stunning” gold-sequinned dress for the premiere of the latest James Bond film. 

Royal commentator Neil Sean said: “For Kate, she looked absolutely stunning, and this must have been very hard for Meghan, simply because she thought this was a big return to the world stage.

“Moving forward, there was another problem too.

“The bigger problem is how you upstage something like that, and let me tell you how it works within the Royal Family – I know people say there’s no competition but that’s not true.

“There is competition, and Kate proved that on Tuesday night because all eyes should have been on the ladies, the stars of Bond.”

Prince William and Kate were also joined by Prince Charles and Camilla on the red carpet at the Royal Albert Hall. 

Members of the Royal Family have traditionally attended the premieres of the James Bond films, which are considered iconic within British culture. For the 2015 premiere of Spectre, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were also joined by Prince Harry, whilst Charles and Camilla attended the 2012 film Skyfall. 

Kate stunned in a gold-sequined cape gown by Jenny Packham, paired with gold-plated earrings from Onitaa. 

As well as impressing royal fans, actor Daniel Craig told the Duchess, “You look jolly lovely”, whilst she was greeting the stars of the film. 

The couple spent 3 days in the city conducting a number of engagements and meeting with high-profile officials and politicians. 

On the morning of September 23, they met with New York’s Mayor, Bill de Blasio, at the One World Trade Centre, where they visited the 9/11 museum and participated in a photocall with journalists. 

Later, they met with Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the US ambassador to the UN, and joined a roundtable discussion with the World Health Organisation. Topics discussed included vaccine equity, climate change and mental health. 

As well as visiting a primary school in Harlem and the United Nations, the couple gave a highly-political speech during the Global Citizen Live concert last Saturday. 

Before returning to their home in California, they urged world leaders to develop a distribution program to provide under-developed countries with the Covid-19 vaccines.
