The Kardashians have often been referred to as America's royal family. Considering both the Kardashian's and the British royal family have a lot in common, it's not completely crazy. (Hello, women-run households.) But you'd be surprised to know some of the downright crazy similarities we've discovered about the two families. Click through to see all of them.
We all know of the talents of momager, Kris Jenner, but Carole Middleton knows business too. Kate's mom is the owner of the company, Party Pieces, which has been around since 1987.
It's heartbreaking to say, but Kayne West and Harry and William lost their mothers at an early age. When Princess Diana died in a car accident in 1997, William was 15-years-old and Harry was 12-years-old. West's mom, Donda West, passed away from heart disease when he was 30 years old.
We all know the Kardashians grew up in L.A., but so did the Duchess of Sussex. She went to Immaculate Heart, and our favorite reality stars went to Marymount High School. The two high schools play each other in sports, so we're guessing they had to cross paths at one point before they were stars.
Kim and Meghan both wore Givenchy for their weddings. Kim wore a gown by the designer for her nuptials with Kanye, and Meghan wore a dress from the brand when she tied the knot with Prince Harry in 2018.
On the British reality TV show, I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here Caitlyn Jenner says, "Do you think the queen watches this show?... This is a big show in the UK. I wonder if the royal family is watching—what if the queen watches?" She continues with, "Because in some way, I'm part of the royal family of entertainment. One royal family meets the other royal family, you know." Oh, we know, Caitlyn.
Queen Elizabeth II has been ruling England for over 60 years and momager Kris Jenner has been running the Kardashian household for over four decades. All hail the queens.
Netflix's The Crown portrays the real-life events that took place in the royal family and led to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth. The Kardashians star in their own reality television show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
The royal family and Kardashian clan are photographed daily as they attend events, walk out of their houses, and participate in everyday life.
Because they are constantly swarmed by paparazzi photographers, interview requests, and are on Twitter and Instagram (well, the royals less so), both families need to know how to handle the media. KUWTK revealed the family in media training in one episode. Luckily, Meghan Markle has already dealt with the media because she was previously an actress.
Prince Charles, the oldest of the Queen's children, went through a divorce with the late Princess Diana in 1995. Kim Kardashian also experienced a public divorce from her husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries. It was thought that the pressures of being in the public eye led to the demise of their marriage.
Every family has their secrets, but unfortunately for these two, they're always shared to the public—like that time Kim was accused of cultural appropriation for posting a photo to Instagram with "Bo Derek braids." There's also been a great number of royal family PR scandals, including a nearly naked Prince Harry being spotted and photographed.
Meghan Markle was given her own assistant, Amy Pickerill, before she married Prince Harry. She will collect gifts given to Markle from the commonwealth and manage her personal schedule. The Kardashian family also has assistants to help handle their social media. Kim reportedly recently fired her longtime assistant, Stephanie Shepherd, whom she'd become good friends with.
Since the royal family travels daily, they need their own air transportation. Prince William and Kate Middleton are constantly on the go, touring different countries and meeting the commonwealth. The Kardashians also have their own private transportation—though it's typically used for vacations, like that time Kim jetted off to Cannes and gave people a tour of her private plane.
Get this: Prince George and North West were both born in 2013. Saint West and Princess Charlotte were born in 2015, and Chicago, Louis, Stormi, and True were all born in 2018. Wild, we know!
Kourtney and Scott Disick named their third child Reign, which was reportedly a name on she'd had on her list for a while.
Before Kylie Jenner gave birth to her daughter, Stormi, Kris had a total of eight grandchildren, as did the Queen of England. Then Khloé gave birth to True and Kate had Louis, followed by Meghan and Harry welcoming Archie in 2019, evening things up again.
Kris gave birth to Kourtney when she was 23-years-old. Queen Elizabeth gave birth to Prince Charles when she was 22-years-old.
Kris’ birthday is in November and she had her first baby (Kourtney) in April. The Queen’s birthday is in April and she had her first baby (Charles) in November.
Both Rob Kardashian and Prince Edward were the last to join their families (well, until Kendall came along to make Rob a big brother), and they both happened to be born in March—only one week apart from each other (with years in between, of course). Rob’s birthday is March 17 and Edward's birthday is March 10.
The Kardashian sisters opened their own clothing store together, called Dash (which is now closed). However, Kim and Khloé both have their own makeup brands that are still very popular. The royals don't have their own clothing brand, but Kate Middleton did work as an assistant accessories buyer with the British clothing brand, Jigsaw, before she was married to Prince William.
Besides having a legacy of dictating trends, the royals are seeing as much interest as ever in their wardrobes—particularly when it comes to Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, with everything she wears selling out within minutes. Kim and her sisters have also brought popularity to brands by wearing them. Her husband, Kanye, has his own line called Yeezy, which Kim helps to represent.
The first names of all the girls in the Kardashian family begin with the letter "K," including momager Kris Jenner. (The exception being that their brother, Rob, is named after their late father, Robert Kardashian.)
Everyone related to the monarch is given a title based on their peerage. This includes all of the Queen's children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren (with a few exceptions).
The royal family is often greeted by the commonwealth with gifts like flowers, signs, and more. During Christmas time, the royal children—Prince George and Princess Charlotte—are sent tons of toys, which are donated to local children's charities. The Kardashians receive a lot fan mail, both paper and online. In an interview with NPR, she said people had been emailing her baby name ideas for Saint.
