Royal Experts Are Convinced This Is the New Era of Meghan Markle
As a member of the British royal family, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex found life to be extremely challenging. When she and Prince Harry got engaged in November 2017, they were thrilled about what they might be able to bring to The Firm. Prince Harry had lived within the confines of his very traditional family for his entire life and he was eager to bring forth some change.
Unfortunately, the other senior royals weren’t as receptive to change as the Sussexes had hoped. It also didn’t help that the British press and public did not feel compelled to welcome Meghan with open arms. Instead, the former actress became the subject of speculation, racist, and sexist remarks.
Deciding that enough was enough. The Sussexes decided to resign from royal life to strike out on their own. They are currently living in Meghan’s hometown of Los Angeles and experts are convinced this is a new era of Meghan.
Meghan Markle is eager to define herself outside of the royal family
Though she often put on a brave face, Meghan’s time within the royal family was very difficult for her. In fact, things got so bad that she reportedly would isolate herself at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor. Following Megxit, she is eager to take back her life.
The duchess and Prince Harry are launching their Archewell brand and they are currently working closely with the Black Lives Matter Movement and on COVID-19 relief endeavors.
“The couple’s future isn’t certain,” The Atlantic’s Caitlin Flanagan explained. “They are hugely appealing and glamorous. Everyone in Hollywood is eager to host them. The first few years of this plan are going to be heady. But — as Harry has often said — as soon as William’s three children become old enough to emerge as individual figures, the klieg lights will immediately turn to them. He is in a rush to make his mark and seems to treat life as a race, too.”
Inside Meghan Markle’s ‘Markle Sparkle’
Despite the backlash against her, the Duchess of Sussex is one of the most influential women in the world.” The ‘Markle Sparkle’ is the kind of marketing you cannot buy,” journalist Elizabeth Holmes told Town & Country “Obviously anybody would give them anything, but I think they’re going to be really careful. I think that Meghan’s power as a dresser will continue. There are so few people—even among celebrities—that have the kind of economic power to move merchandise the way that royal women do, so I hope and I think she’ll choose carefully.”
However, it appears that Meghan has set her sights on something bigger. Daily Mail is reporting that the duchess feels that her “gnawing urgency to uproot from England” was fate. “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,” the source said. “Meghan feels like her mission goes far beyond acting. She said she wants to use her voice for change and hasn’t ruled out a career in politics.”
This is the new era of Meghan Markle
Though we’ve only spotted her volunteering and on Zoom calls in recent months, royal experts are convinced this is the new era of Meghan Markle. When the duchess gave her speech on Black Lives Matter to her alma mater, Immaculate Heart High School, Essence Magazine, a Black women’s lifestyle magazine got the exclusive.
The Sussexes have always been adamant about being more diverse and inclusive. “One of the first things we started talking about when we met was just the different things that we wanted to do in the world and how passionate we were about seeing change,” Meghan revealed in her BBC engagement interview.
Now that she is no longer muzzled by royal rules of neutrality, this is a new era for the duchess. She and Prince Harry have issued a new “zero-engagement” policy with several British tabloids, they’ve spoken in defense of Black Lives Matter and much more to come especially as the 2020 Presidential election approaches.
As Vogue describes, “It does seem like we’ve arrived at the moment when Meghan Markle, and her “sparkle,” can truly shine.”
