In totally unrelated SHESOMAJOR news. I wanted to take a minute to give my 5 cents on the royal rumble currently taking place across the pond. As you may all have heard by now, the Duke & Duchess of Sussex have chucked up the deuces to the monarchy and are taking their talents to North America.
Since Meghan and Harry’s love affair was introduced to the media, Meghan has been ripped apart at the seams and raked over the coals. Her family life has been exposed, her worth has been debated and pretty much her fairytale dreams have come crashing down hard. I mean, the media has been brutal, one host went as far as comparing her child, Archie to a chimpanzee!
But why? Why Meghan? Let’s be real, Meghan’s mixed, she has a beautiful, sweet black mother and er a white dad. In Britain, she’s just not good enough for her title because she’s black. The end.
For those who don’t know Meghan beyond her royal role as the “Duchess”, she is a talented actress who appeared on one of my favourite shows, Suits. I also was an avid follower of her blog, The Tig, which was shut down because, as a royal, your life is not your own. Meghan’s not new to this, she’s true to this. While her recent spotlight has 100% raised her profile, she’s always been a strong woman, one who clearly doesn’t take no ……
Meghan & Harry’s recent decision to step back from royal life and forge a new path for themselves and their family shows major strength and courage. This bold decision is unprecedented but the couple has shown us that they are in charge of their own lives and their happiness. We should all take a page out of their book and live our truth.
I love Harry + Meghan’s bold approach and I can’t wait to see what’s next for the royal couple.
