Kate’s Bond premiere appearance ‘must have been hard’ for Meghan, expert claims

Meghan Markle would have found Kate Middleton's red carpet appearance difficult as it threatened to "upstage" her recent visit to New York City, a royal expert has claimed.

Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex conducted a three-day tour of the city last week in a trip that marked their official return to the world stage.

Meanwhile, the Duchess of Cambridge wowed royal fans as 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.

The Duchess of Cambridge wearing a golden regal gown from British designer Jenny Packham, was seen greeting the Prince of Wales with a kiss on the cheek and a quick loving embrace.

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, while Charles and Camilla attended the 2012 film Skyfall.

No Time To Die marks the 25th film in the Bond franchise and is the final film with actor Daniel Craig starring in the iconic 007 roles.

While she was greeting the stars of the film, Daniel told Kate: "You look jolly lovely."

The film follows a retired Bond living a more tranquil life in Jamaica, before being convinced to return to service to rescue a kidnapped scientist.
