In a new and candid interview with The Cut, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has shared insights about her children, Archie and Lilibet, her life in Montecito, California, her chapter away from The Firm, and more.

Appearing briefly for the profile was her husband, Prince Harry, whose quick cameos came in the form of complimenting his wife’s modelling skills, dancing to his own beatboxing, and alluding to his fractured relationship with his family.

While Harry revealed that “many” of his family struggle to work and live together, Meghan also spoke about the icy bridge between her husband and the future king, Prince Charles.

Referring to her own fractured relationship with her father, Thomas Markle, Meghan told the publication: “Harry said to me, ‘I lost my dad in this process.’ It doesn’t have to be the same for them as it was for me, but that’s his decision.”

Harry also spoke about his and Meghan’s growing business venture, Archewell.

“I think we always knew the first few years of creating this new life from scratch were going to be the busiest — ” the duke said.

“Well, it’s a start-up,” Meghan added. “We were building a business. During lockdown — “

Harry interjected: “With everyone weighing in. If you do something, they criticise you. If you don’t do anything, they criticise you anyway. It’s a lot.”

Also making cameos were the royal couple’s children, Archie and Lilibet.

The eldest featured most prominently in the profile as Meghan picked him up from preschool.

The duchess explained that if the family were still based in the U.K., she wouldn’t be able to do the school run without an audience.

“Sorry, I have a problem with that. That doesn’t make me obsessed with privacy. That makes me a strong and good parent protecting my child,” Meghan said.

It was just recently reported that Prince William wants to step up and do the school run for his kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis as they move to a brand new school.
