Meghan said she mourns Queen Elizabeth, whom she considers a “brilliant example” of female leadership
Meghan Markle gave a candid interview and starred in a photo shoot for Variety. In an interview, she noted that she is now in mourning for Queen Elizabeth, whose funeral she nevertheless went, although there were rumors that this would not happen.
Shooting for the photo shoot took place at the San Isidro Ranch in Montecito, California . It is in Montecito that the Dukes of Sussex now live after they purchased the estate for $14 million.
The journalist notes that San Ysidro is a luxury resort with bungalows hidden on a mountainside overlooking the Pacific coast. It's a sheltered place where wealthy locals and Los Angeles visitors get the best service.
No wonder that such a place was chosen for filming. The journalist describes Meghan as a “boring American mom.” Megan talks about how she loves watching Jeopardy! and lie in bed with a glass of wine.
She says she loves children's songs about dinosaurs because of her children and loves Beyoncé's tracks.
And when asked what she wants out of life, Megan said: “Joy. It really is. It's all we can work on for ourselves, our friends, our children, those around us – it would be so good. And then we feel joy.”
Meghan was to be honored in Variety's Power of Women class of 2022, celebrating the notable achievements of women in entertainment and media throughout the year. She was to be honored for both charitable and creative work, including a podcast called Archetypes, but three weeks before the release, she flew with her husband to the UK for the funeral of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
< p>Meghan said the Queen's long reign was a “brilliant example” of female leadership.
“When the world mourned the loss of Queen Elizabeth II, there was so much love and support. I am very grateful that I was able to be there for my husband to support him, especially at that time. What is so beautiful is to see the legacy that his grandmother was able to leave on many fronts.Of course, in terms of female leadership, she is the most shining example of what it looks like.I feel deep gratitude for the opportunity to spend time with her and get to know her.It was a difficult time, but my husband, always an optimist, said: “Now she is reunited with her husband,” Megan said.
She noted that she was very proud to meet the Queen and feels happy, because she managed to start a “warm relationship with the matriarch of the family.< /p>
But now with her husband, Prince Harry, they are full of energy and inspired by everything they aspired to.
“We're also focused on our foundation. Most of our work involves charitable space,” Megan said.
She noted that in her Archetypes podcast, she explores the nuances of relationships with women. And, not being a journalist, he wants to get frankness from them and learn something.
Talking about her indefinitely delayed Netflix project, Meghan mentions director Liz Garbus.
“It's nice to be able to entrust your story to someone – an experienced director whose work I have long admired – even if it means it may not be how we would tell it. But that's not why we tell it. We entrust our story to someone then to another, which means that she will pass through their lens,” Meghan says and notes that Prince Harry has never worked in show business, so he is very interested.
Speaking of the latest podcast “Archetypes”, Megan stated that she was worried before the conversation with Paris Hilton, and mentioned that, like her, she was not born beautiful.
To the journalist's clarifying question: “Didn't she grow up beautiful?”, Megan said that grew up smart.
“I used to think of Paris with envy and judgment, the two most dangerous things. But then you hear about her trauma, her life and her image, and I told her: “I’m very sorry that I judged you,” Megan said.
She noted that Hollywood has changed a lot since she was part of the film industry.Recall that in the series “Force Majeure” she finished filming in 2018, when she was already engaged to the prince.
But she will not return to acting. But suggests that her children can work in the entertainment industry when they grow up.
” When you become a parent, you sincerely want your children to find something that brings them complete joy. But I want them could forge their own path. If it's the entertainment industry, great. And also, good luck. There are so many people who will talk about what opened the door for my children. But it still takes talent and a lot of courage. We create multifaceted, interesting, kind, creative people. That's who our children are,” Megan said.
And when asked if she understands that becoming a public person, she will someday become the heroine of the film herself and another actress will play her, Megan replied that she had not thought about it.
“It's strange. You should separate “Anyone who talks about me or chooses an actor to play me will be a caricature of me created for a business that makes people a lot of money. Once you can separate that out, it will be much easier for you to say, 'Okay. In fact, it has nothing to do with me, “said Meghan Markle. And, after thinking, she added that she could advise the actress who will play her someday to be soft, playful and funny. And just call her prototype to to consult.
At the end of the interview, the Duchess of Sussex spoke about her daily routine.
She and Harry work from home, spend a lot of time with their children and always have breakfast together.
< p>And they rarely go to Los Angeles from Montecito, because it takes more than two hours to get to the city.
