] In late 2018, royal expert Leslie Carroll told Fox News that although she does not believe there was ever a feud between Markle and Middleton, she would not be surprised if the two kings at some point had disagreements
"I think they are very different women," Carroll said. "They seem to understand each other very well as professionals, as two duchesses working together on charitable causes. But they have very different personalities. Kate is obviously very British. She is very reserved and calm. She will be the future queen, so she does everything she has to do. And then comes this whirlwind of an American who is ambitious and has a social conscience. "
" The reason we're obsessed with the royal family is that it's a 1,000-year-old soap opera, "added Carroll. 19659008] Jessica Napoli of Fox News contributed to this report.
