4 Reasons Meghan Markle Is Probably Living Her Best Life Right Now

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex could very well be living her best life right now. She and her husband, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex are currently sheltering in place with their 1-year-old son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The family of three’s reportedly staying in a Beverly Hills mansion belonging to media mogul Tyler Perry. That is, until they find a more permanent home in Meghan’s hometown of Los Angeles.

Hunkering down at home as a result of COVID-19 with everything else that’s been happening in Meghan and Harry’s lives may be working in the Duchess of Sussex’s favor. Remember, the couple secretly relocated from Canada after officially stepping down as senior members of the British royal family at the end of March 2020. Ahead, discover reasons why the 38-year-old duchess might be living her best life right now. 

1. She can spend quality time with Prince Harry and Archie

Having to stay at home frees up a lot of time for Meghan. On her now-defunct blog, The Tig, she once said she likes to keep busy. But now COVID-19 has forced her to slow down a bit. As a result, she has more time to hang out with Harry and Archie.

In honor of Archie’s first birthday on May 6, 2020, the couple shared an adorable video of Meghan and Archie reading a book. We’d venture to guess the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been spending a lot of their time at home bonding with Archie.

2. Meghan Markle doesn’t have to deal with the press 

An added bonus of being holed up at home is that Meghan doesn’t have the paparazzi following her every move. Ever since she started dating Harry, she’s had ups and downs and faced intense scrutiny. And she’s been vocal about the toll it has taken on her. The Duchess of Sussex may be happy to stay at home during COVID-19 simply because it means some time without the press.

3. She can focus on giving back to the community

Meghan has a long history of giving back. Years before she started dating Harry she’d been involved with various charities. While at home, the Duchess of Sussex has helped her local community — she and Harry have been seen delivering meals to LA residents — and other non-profit organizations. It’s likely been great for Meghan to focus on what’s important to her. After all, wanting to give back and change the world is what she and Harry bonded over on their first date.

4. Meghan Markle has more time to cook 

The Duchess of Sussex has long been a foodie. She gushed about restaurants and various dishes on The Tig and as a royal she helped launch a charity cookbook. Staying at home, Meghan and Harry have reportedly been stocking their fridge with groceries from Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods.

Without the services of a chef, the Duchess of Sussex has supposedly been whipping up a lot of their meals. And judging by her longtime love of food and cooking, Meghan could very well be loving the extra time in the kitchen. 

While COVID-19 has been devastating, for Meghan it looks as if it may have given her the opportunity to focus on what she loves to do; spend time with Harry and Archie, cook, and give back.
