Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have been labelled social climbers by a royal expert.
Speaking to Canadian TV show The Social, Elaine Lui revealed that the pair both “socially climbed” to achieve their position within the Royal Family.
"If we are talking about royal social climbing, it’s not just Meghan Markle,” Liu told Canadian TV show The Social.
"Kate Middleton met Prince William at St Andrews University – she was not supposed to go to St Andrews University – when Prince William announced he was going to St Andrews University, she changed schools.”
"She actually changed her submission and where she was applying to and she changed a whole school to go, like many other young women by the way. Lots and lots of women were applying to St Andrews just for Prince William."
Ms Lui continued: "There she got her way into Prince William’s circle – that’s also what we would call social climbing and networking.”
"Then she became his girlfriend and you don’t hear about Kate Middleton hanging out with any of her old friends. They only hang out with royal people, like aristocrats.”
"That’s what royal people do. Now that Meghan Markle is a royal person, she doesn’t have time for riff-rafts."
