No matter where one turns these days, there are always negative reports about Meghan Markle. From her feud with Kate Middleton to her inability to work with staff members, it seems as if allegations in the news often paint Markle’s royal life out to be a sad one.
However, what if the Duchess of Sussex is actually more satisfied with royal life than one might think? This seems to be true when looking closely at the different signs she has shown in the past year. Read on below to see what these signs are!
Meghan Markle’s marriage is going strong
Markle would probably not like royal life if she were stuck in an unhappy marriage. Fortunately, though, she and Prince Harry seem like a great couple who are not breaking up anytime soon
According to relationship expert Jane Greer, their body language has shown that they are very close. Markle and Prince Harry often walk in sync, show similar expressions on their faces, and try to look out for each other.
Behind the scenes, they support one another as well. For example, Prince Harry stood up for Markle against the negative press and intrusive paparazzi. He also did everything he could to help her out while she was pregnant with their son. Meanwhile, Markle has also shown herself to be a stable rock for Prince Harry. She helps him deal with self-doubt and encourages him to be the best version of himself.
Meghan Markle works a lot as a royal
Markle seems to enjoy the professional aspect of being a royal as well because she works a lot. She is actually known to be quite a workaholic and her work ethics helped her carve out a career in Hollywood. Even though royals have more leniency in how much they work, Markle isn’t sitting back and relaxing. In fact, she continues to work just as hard.
Even when she was pregnant, Markle was still very much a busy bee. She showed up to many events with Prince Harry and was even rocking four-inch heels in the process.
Queen Elizabeth is reportedly in awe of Markle and how hard she works. The queen herself is hard-working royal as well — she is 93 years old and is not retiring anytime soon — so there’s no doubt it makes her happy to see someone who understands the importance of carrying out royal duties.
Meghan Markle gets to pursue her passion for humanitarian work
A big part of the reason why Markle likes working as a royal is perhaps that it allows her to focus on humanitarian causes.
Even as an actress, she cared a lot about promoting important charities and raising awareness for different issues around the world. In 2015, she was even named the United Nations Women’s Advocate for Women’s Political Participation and Leadership for her work with women’s empowerment causes.
During important events in her life, such as her wedding, Markle often requests that her guests donate to charities instead of sending her gifts.
As a charity-minded person, there’s no doubt that Markle is happy to carry out royal duties since most of them involve philanthropy in one form or another. And not only does Markle promote different charity organizations in the UK, she occasionally gets to travel to other countries and learn about humanitarian work there as well.
Her friend, actress Priyanka Chopra, once said that was “always meant for big things. To be a change and be an important voice in doing that. It’s amazing that she found that calling and has the platform to be able to do it.”
