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.

50 years ago, women in Britain won the right to equal pay. That monumental moment began with one courageous and inspiring group of women in a factory in Dagenham, England. In 1968, facing a pay settlement that declared them less skilled than men, the sewing machinists of the Ford Motor Company walked out on strike. In the face of great pressure, they stood firm, and two years later the UK Parliament was forced to pass the Equal Pay Act, protecting and supporting working women ever since. To mark International Women’s Day, The Duchess of Sussex visited Dagenham to meet with Geraldine Dear, one of the strikers, and spend time with students at the Robert Clack Upper School to meet the town’s next generation of female role models, and talk to young women and men about the women who inspire them. • “Being in Dagenham is incredibly profound. Because as you can see with Geraldine and the other women who had the strength to really stand up for something that they knew needed to be done. This is the best example of no matter how small you might feel, how low you may feel on the ladder or the totem pole, no matter what colour you are, no matter what gender you are, you have a voice, and you certainly have the right to speak up for what is right.” – The Duchess of Sussex A lifetime advocate and campaigner for gender equity, The Duchess joined a special assembly to celebrate this remarkable local story, as well as recognise the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of all women around the world. #InternationalWomensDay #IWD2020 #EachForEqual Photo © The Duke and Duchess of Sussex / Chris Allerton

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.
