#Mexit: How british media portrayed Kate Middleton and Megan Markle

An inset shot of the comparison An inset shot of the comparison

In life, some have it better than others.

That is probably the case with a Buzzfeed story of 20 Headlines Comparing Meghan Markle To Kate Middleton.

Fate smiled upon both ladies as they married into royalty.

However criticism on the other hand has been unfair to one of them.

Very unfair indeed.

While Meghan was being shamed for the same things she did, her sister-in-law, Kate, was praised.

Starting from pregnancies carried by both women, media has been absolutely unfair in its coverage.

While Kate was praised for tenderly cradling her baby bump, Meghan was criticized.

Kate set up a company to protect their brand. Meghan did the same. While the media was fair to Kate, comparing her move to the Beckhams, Meghan got all the blame.

And on and on. For the remaining 18 headlines, Meghan was always given the lower stick and Kate, praised.
