Meghan Markle recently did an interview where she took a dig at the royal family

She had been in an interview on Aug. 14 with Emily Ramshaw of The 19th when she shared her thoughts on politics and the Black Lives Matters movement. “It’s something that I look forward to being a part of,” Meghan said of the two topics (via Us Weekly). “And being a part of using my voice in a way that I haven’t been able to of late. So, yeah, it’s good to be home.”

As a royal, Meghan was not allowed to do or say things that could be viewed as political. She could not vote in elections or publicly endorse political candidates. But now that she has stepped away from the royal family, she is no longer forced to abide by those customs. She has now started to align herself with more causes and initiatives that align with her true beliefs and interests, such as the Black Lives Matter movement.

Meghan previously spoke about the death of George Floyd and other police-related killings in a speech in June. The same month, a source told Harper’s Bazaar that she and her husband had been trying to figure out how to help amid the protests that happened after Floyd’s death.

“This is something that is incredibly personal to Meghan, especially given everything she has experienced,” the source continued, seemingly referencing the racism Meghan faced during her time in the United Kingdom. However, the source did not share how they intended to help.

Meghan Markle left the United Kingdom to have a better life

After mounds of negative press and rumors of infighting within the royal family, she and Prince Harry announced in January that they were going to step back from their senior roles to spend more time abroad. They finished their duties in March and went to spend some time in Canada before moving to Meghan’s native Los Angeles.

The couple spent about four months in a mansion belonging to their friend Tyler Perry before buying a lavish pad in Santa Barbara, California.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved into their family home in July of this year,” a spokesperson for the couple said in a statement shared with CNN in August. “They have settled into the quiet privacy of their community since their arrival and hope that this will be respected for their neighbors, as well as for them as a family.”

Fingers crossed that their new life gives them the peace, privacy, and comfort that they have seemingly always desired.
