Meghan Markle’s honest quotes on motherhood are so true


The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan, has two beautiful children with Prince Harry, so how does she feel about being a mother?

Meghan Markle has made a few candid comments on motherhood over the years – and they are so relatable.

When the Duchess showed baby Archie off to the world at St George’s Hall in Windsor, she gave some words to the press. “It’s magic, pretty amazing,” the first-time mum said, alongside her husband Harry, “I have the two best guys in the world so I’m delighted,” she added.

Later, when she and Harry went on an official tour, Meghan got a little more candid about motherhood. Although she said it was “all so exciting,” she did admit that being a working mother was “a lot”.

When speaking to Lara Rosmarin, chief executive of Cape Innovation and Technology and a mother herself, Meghan said: “It must be a lot to juggle. We’re only five months in right now. Being a working mum and travelling 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 ‘ah-ha’, and it’s so rewarding.” After Meghan and Harry welcomed their second child, Lilibet, the Duchess shared her feelings of being “overwhelmed” and “overjoyed” at the same time.

In an open letter to campaign for paid parental leave across the US, Meghan opened up about her personal experience. She wrote: “In June, my husband and I welcomed our second child. Like any parents, we were overjoyed. Like many parents, we were overwhelmed.

“Like fewer parents, we weren’t confronted with the harsh reality of either spending those first few critical months with our baby or going back to work. We knew we could take her home, and in that vital (and sacred) stage, devote any and everything to our kids and to our family.”
