Parenting is hard no matter who you are, but for certain celebrities it can take on a whole new level when you have to experience all the ups and downs of raising kids while in the public eye. Add to that the often ruthless media and public commentary that pits parents (especially moms) against one another and it’s a whole new ballgame. After plenty of years in the limelight, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, seems to have it down to a fine science, raising three adorable children — one of whom is a future king. Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, is a former actress a little more unaccustomed with adhering to a strict set of rules, yet she’s managed to set a strong example for her infant son as she and hubby Prince Harry step away from their senior royal roles. Two different women raising their kids with their own set of values, yet still doing remarkable jobs given all the additional pressure. So instead of comparing two capable, compassionate women, we’re celebrating the positive impact they’re having on their kids’ lives.
