A royal expert has criticised "patronising" claims that Kate Middleton is copying Meghan Markle – and called her a “role model for women”.
Angela Levin – who was a biographer for Prince Harry – praised the Duchess of Cambridge for her growth in the past few years, Express.co.uk reports.
She told GB News that everyone has “always underestimated her” and praised her for doing her royal duty.
"People thought she was lazy and just waiting around,” Levin explained.
"But what we didn't know is that she was studying the role very carefully.
"She and William wanted to make sure that she could manage it. We have seen that Meghan couldn't cope at all.
"It's not easy at all. It's difficult. There are disadvantages by the score really."
Her comments come after Kate and William basked in the red carpet glory at the premiere of James Bond.
Throughout the royal engagement, they met cast and production members of the film – including Daniel Craig, who said the duchess looked “jolly lovely”.
Ms Levin continued: "She gets on very well with William, who owes her a great deal.
“We have seen the difference in him, in the confidence he has in himself.

"We have a woman who is nearly 40 whose goodness inside is showing outside on her face and the way she moves.
"Kate is a terrific role model for many women. She shows that you don't have to rush, you don't have to be the hare in the race. You can take it in your stride.
"What I find awful is that lots of people are saying she is copying Meghan and that is why she is doing better. I think it's extremely patronising."
After the Bond premiere, Kate and William jetted off to Northern Ireland for their first-ever visit to Derry-Londonderry as part of their royal duties.
