Meghan Markle justifies her decision to leave the royal family

Several months after the highly controversial Megxit, Meghan Markle spoke half-word in an interview with the American magazine Fortune about the choice made by her and Prince Harry to leave the royal family, justifying their decision.

A controversial choice but one that was fully embraced. On 8 January 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sent a huge shockwave when they announced their intention to step down from their royal duties to live an independent life.

A desire for emancipation that has earned the couple much and often violent criticism. This thunderous departure was pejoratively renamed Megxit, to Harry’s chagrin, a term that puts all the blame for the break-up between the Sussex and the British royal family on the former star of the Suits series.

But despite the attacks on her, the Duchess remains upright in her boots, convinced she made the right choice. Recently, Meghan Markle appeared to defend the couple’s decision to leave the royal family in an interview with Fortune magazine.

A virtual interview conducted via live videoconference from her luxurious Santa Barbara villa, on the occasion of the “Fortune Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit”, the summit of the world’s most powerful new generation of women organised by the American newspaper.

The best decision” for her family

In excerpts relayed by the Mirror on Tuesday 13 October, Meghan Markle explains that “sometimes making the best decision for you and your family is not necessarily the popular decision”. How can you not read between the lines that although the Sussex’s choice to slam the door on the royal family made them targets, it was the right decision to make for the good of their family.

“Most people are afraid of the unknown, but sometimes you need to take the plunge,” continued Prince Harry’s wife, seemingly referring to the couple’s move to California. Armed with all their courage, Meghan and Harry chose to take this leap into the unknown.

“My faith is greater than my fear,” the duchess explained to Fortune reporter Emma Hinchliffe. “When you really know who you are, know what you believe in and live accordingly, then I think you can begin to fight the roots of your fear.

As for the criticisms that have been levelled at the couple since they left the royal family, and which have not spared Meghan since her marriage to Harry, Archie’s mother seemed to send them a delicate little tackle, saying: “When you know the truth, no matter what people say, you can go to bed with a clear conscience”. By not saying anything officially, Meghan Markle finally says it all.
