"Harry and Meghan are a novelty right now. They are royalty-adjacent, which is giving them some shine and some air time, but after Netflix and the book, what do they have to keep them at this level of attention? They have created their entire career on putting themselves in opposition to the very institution which gives them any sparkle," Shannon Felton Spence told Fox News.

The royal expert went on to say that Prince William and Middleton do not have to play the same game that Prince Harry and Markle are playing.

"They are the monarchy. They will always be. That doesn't wear off. The monarchy has stood for thousands of years. Celebrities rise and fall all the time. In 10 years' time, Meghan may be doing a 90-minute holiday movie for Netflix. Catherine will never, ever be in that position," she said.

Kate Middleton And Meghan Markle's Recent Appearances Compared?

Spence also talked about Middleton and Markle's recent public appearances, where the former seemingly made more headlines than the latter.

"The tiaras, sashes, and pomp may not bump Harry and Meghan from the front pages just yet, but they cannot compete in the long term. The novelty wears off off celebrity and society. That's one of the reasons they have to constantly reinvent and outdo themselves to keep relevant. You can't outdo royalty. Last week at the Earthshot [Prize] awards I was struck by how different royalty is to celebrity. We assume they are closely related, but they aren't. Royalty is in a different stratosphere, and that was evident at Earthshot where you could see the two side by side and see how the crowd reacted to them differently," she said.

Prince William and Middleton were in the United States to attend the Earthshot Prize awards. They also made other public appearances throughout the week.

Markle, on the other hand, attended a speaking engagement in Indiana. She and Prince Harry are also scheduled to accept a prestigious award.
