The couple who recently announced the news of their expected baby, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle, opened up about parenting. While Prince Harry is the younger brother of the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, Meghan does not come from a royal background. Markle is an American actress known for her role in Suits. Meghan being an independent and open-minded woman has often shared her experiences through the journey of motherhood inspiring many other women.

Meghan Markle has also given strength and inspired her husband, Prince Harry, as we see the couple talking in sync about many controversies that are going around the world and them. The couple recently announced their second baby. The first one is a boy named Archie, who is already quite a newsmaker. Here are honest quotes on motherhood by Meghan Markle.

‘It’s a lot’ : Meghan Markle

“We’re only five months in right now. Being a working mom and traveling as well with a baby, my goodness it’s a lot, but it’s all so exciting. There are days when it’s a lot to juggle but then you meet someone and you have an impact on them and you say ‘aha,’ and it’s so rewarding.”

Feeling vulnerable as a pregnant woman

“Look, any woman, especially when they are pregnant, you’re really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging. And then when you have a newborn — you know … especially as a woman, it’s a lot. So you add [media attention] on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed.”

The baby bump

“It’s funny, I’ve actually been joking the last few weeks. I had seen this documentary on Netflix about feminism, and one of the things they said during pregnancy was ‘I feel the embryonic kicking of feminism.’ I loved that, so boy or girl, whatever it is, we hope that that’s the case with our little bump.”

The miscarriage

“We have learned that when people ask how any of us are doing, and when they really listen to the answer, with an open heart and mind, the load of grief often becomes lighter — for all of us.”

“In being invited to share our pain, together we take the first steps toward healing.”

The big learning curve

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who is Queen Elizabeth II’s grandson, in an interview with the BBC talked about the royal life and how Markle is getting used to it. She said, “I think I can very safely say, as naive as it sounds now, having gone through this learning curve in the past year and a half, I did not have any understanding of just what it would be like.”

Meghan Markle has been a woman who has often given us feminist goals. She has often depicted the values of an independent and free-thinking woman and has also inspired others to take their own stand. When Markle had opened up about her miscarriage she was criticised for sharing such a fact. While Markle was simply being honest about her experience, many found it offensive.

Though this debate may have struck up after her talking about the miscarriage, Meghan Markle has been a support system for those going through it. It is not only a physically draining incident but takes a huge toll on the mental health too. Meghan knew this and did the right thing to support the parents who have gone through miscarriages by sharing her experience. Meghan Markle is often supported by her dear friend and our Indian desi girl Priyanka Chopra Jonas. She has often called out the trolls and racist comments towards Meghan and has acted as a shield just like best friends do.

A big decision made by the couple, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, was stepping down as the senior members of the royal family. The Queen further explained that the couple did not want to rely on public funds for their sustenance. They wanted to become financially independent and still support Her majesty the Queen. Now there’s a message in there somewhere. Financial independence, ring a bell? Yep, irrespective of your gender financial independence stay as a primary requirement as an individual. The couple is literally involving as a role model for today’s setup of society.

Meghan Markle today stands as a strong inspiration for women be it pregnancy, motherhood, miscarriages, career and married life. She has set a couple of goals for the world along with her husband Prince, harry. Lastly, our favourite feminist quote by Meghan Markle would be, “It changes absolutely everything in the community when a woman is empowered”.

A surprising fact to be noted in these events is that Prince Harry’s late mother the gorgeous Princess Diana had announced the news of expecting a baby exactly 37 years ago on Valentine’s day. Soon after, she was blessed with a healthy baby boy, we know as the Duke of Sussex Prince Harry.
