The control of the royal institution

First revelation of the interview: the return of the Duchess on social networks. “I come back… to Instagram,” she confides to journalist Allison P. Davis. A big announcement for the former actress who liked to share her advice way of life on his blog The Tigerwhich she had had to sacrifice by royal obligation. After her marriage to Prince Harry, the royal institution had asked her to keep her opinions to herself and stick to the rules. But the Windsor mantraNever complain, never justify(Never complain, never justify yourself) weighed heavily on the newcomer’s shoulders, going so far as to affect her mental health. This pressure exerted by the royal institution also did not allow him to control the media image of his own son, the young Archie, born in 2019. “There is a structure according to which if you want to distribute photos of your child, as a member of the family, you must first give them to the Royal Rota (royal rotation, or the pool of media accredited to follow the royal family, a system which the couple have now opted out of). Today, the Sussex couple use their company’s Instagram account, Archewell, to share their news. But it looks like Prince Harry’s wife is finally ready to make her own voice heard.

Tyler Perry, the “savior”

Feeling oppressed by the weight of royal institutions, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry decide to distance themselves from Buckingham. According to the Duchess, it is actor Tyler Perry (Don’t Look Up: Cosmic Denial) who would have reached out to them. While they were staying in a house in Vancouver and the borders between Canada and the United States were going to close because of the Covid-19, the one who is also a director and producer lent them one of his houses in Beverly Hills, as well as a a security service. Temporary housing so the couple can find work and then buy their own home in Montecito. It was therefore after signing a contract with Spotify and Netflix, for projects involving their new company Archewell, that the Sussexes were finally able to move in. “We did everything we could to have this house,” Meghan Markle explains to The cup.

The moving return to Frogmore Cottage

Since moving to the US, Meghan and Harry have only returned to the UK together once. Last June, the couple attended Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebration. It was also the first time they had participated in a public event alongside the rest of the family since their departure. On the spot, the Duchess of Sussex says that she would have gone to Frogmore Cottage, their former home, to put away the rest of the belongings that they had to leave before leaving for Canada. “You come back and you open the drawers and you’re like, ‘Oh my God. Is that what I was writing in my diary there? And here are all my socks from that time”, details the former actress adding that it was almost “surreal” to return to this part of her life. A moving moment for the Duchess who says she had to fight for a long time before finding this new freedom.

Working together with Harry

Now comfortably settled in California, Meghan and Harry expanded the family by giving birth to a baby girl named Lilibet in 2021. The Duke and Duchess now work together and are fully invested in their new venture. Meghan Markle has just launched her own podcast, the first episode of which consists of an interview with her friend Serena Williams. “It’s so real,” Archie and Lilibet’s mom says of her new creation. “I feel different. I feel clearer. It’s like I found my voice. I’ve had it for a long time, but now I’m able to use it,” she explains to The cup. During the interview, Prince Harry does not fail to make a small appearance to express how much he likes working with his wife unlike other people: “Most people I know and a lot of my family members are not able to work and live together”. The couple seem to want to prove that their love is stronger than anything and want to share it. “The piece of my life that I couldn’t share, that people couldn’t see, was our love story,” says Meghan Markle.

The time for forgiveness

Despite the criticisms that the former actress had to face, it would seem that the hope of peaceful relations with the Firm seems to be settling. “I think forgiveness is really important. It takes a lot more energy not to forgive, ”says the Duchess of Sussex. “But it takes a lot of effort to forgive. I really made an active effort, especially knowing that I could say anything.” It remains to be seen whether the royal family agrees.
