Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Know Exactly What Their Post-Royal Purpose Is, Expert Says
It seems incredulous to many people that Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex would choose to leave the British royal family. After all, it’s the only life the prince has ever known. It also afforded him a life of affluence, privilege, and luxury.
Meghan’s story is a bit different. Though she had a great relationship with her father, she grew up middle class with her single mother in LA. From there, the Duchess of Sussex carved out a career for herself in Hollywood, scoring a starring role in the acclaimed drama series Suits.
Despite some of its many pluses, royal life was something Meghan was unable to get used to, so she and the prince left. Though many royal fans and experts believed the Sussexes would be out of their element, they seem to be hitting their stride.
Meghan Markle believes leaving the royal family was fate
The British public and press never gave Meghan the opportunity to find her way in the royal family. Instead, the tabloids terrorized and speculated about her life, even throughout her pregnancy with her son, Archie.
Things got so bad that the duchess retreated into her home at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor when she was not working. Now that she’s on the other side of things, sources close to the duchess says that she believes everything that happened was fate. She’s been using her voice to speak out against police brutality, the injustices of the coronavirus pandemic, and against negativity.
“Meghan said her work as a leader is more important than ever right now and that she’s been speaking with Oprah and other community leaders on how she can be part of the solution,” an insider told Daily Mail.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are not rushing things
Now that their lives are completely their own again, Prince Harry and Meghan are doing things differently this tme around.
“You can say what you want about Meghan, but she works incredibly hard,” a source told Vanity Fair. “The problem is she and Harry have a tendency to hatch big projects over dinner and expect them to be actioned within days. Meghan had brilliant ideas, but she was always in a hurry and aides had to sit down and explain that foundations and big projects take thought, time, and commitment, they cannot be rushed.”
Now, with so much going on in the world, the Sussexes have pushed the launch of their Archewell Foundation to 2021. “They have learned from the mistakes of the past and taking their time with Archewell,” the source revealed. “They want to get the next stage right.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry know exactly what they’re doing
Though the Sussexes haven’t exactly taken off running in their new lives, they are laying a great foundation. When the world returns to normal, they will thrive outside of the royal family. A source explained their approach to Town & Country,
They are hands-on, working nonstop on the development of Archewell—their new nonprofit organization—and it’s giving them a lot of energy. They want to see positive and substantive change happen in this world, and they want to lift up the voices and platforms of dynamic and diverse leaders of all kinds who are already making that change a reality. They want to focus on supporting and strengthening community. In a lot of ways, what people have been seeing is Archewell already in motion. And there’s a lot to come.
