If you follow the news surrounding the royal family, then you already know that there is always drama swirling in the news. There have been countless news stories about the relationship between Prince William and Prince Harry, as well as their wives, Duchess Catherine and Duchess Meghan. The drama is endless and it is ridiculous.
The latest headlines surrounding Duchess Catherine all have to do with her latest hairstyle. Recently, the media has been waxing poetic about the Princess of Wales and her curtain bangs, as well as the slightly messy bun that she wore for a recent outing.
If you read any of the reports about Duchess Catherine's bun and bangs, you will see descriptions such as an "intricate updo" or a "fresh look." However, the same could not be said for any time that Duchess Meghan stepped out with a similar look.
Duchess Catherine changes hairstyle, causing discussion on social media over Duchess Meghan's own hairstyles of the past
Say what you will about either woman, but it is clear that even the media and the fashion journalists are playing favorites. And they are doing it in a way that is beyond obvious, it's dangerous.
When Duchess Meghan would wear her hair in a bun or do something that the media didn't seem to like, she was "breaking royal protocol." When Duchess Catherine does it, she is being fresh and contemporary.
And social media has clearly taken notice. Of course, there are those who adamantly defend the royal that they "prefer," but in general, it is clear that these attacks are just that, a way to bring down another woman.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with either woman "copying" a look that millions of women have worn in the past, it is truly bizarre how often the media has chosen to instead make it seem like if Duchess Meghan does it, she is wrong or breaking a random "protocol," whereas if Duchess Catherine does it, she is being innovative and stylish.
There is something fundamentally wrong with how Duchess Meghan has been treated. And I can only hope that more people call out the toxicity of certain media outlets and the way they seem so focused on one royal lady over the other.
