Meghan Markle finally speaks about Queen Elizabeth II’s death

When Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8 in Balmoral, Scotland, one of the subplots was the fact that Meghan Markle didn’t travel to the estate with the rest of the UK Royal Family.

But, she has been mourning the Queen’s death and has now opened up on what the past few weeks have been like for herself and for Prince Harry.


“In big moments in life, you get a lot of perspective, it makes you wonder what you want to focus your energy on,” she told Variety of the family’s period of mourning, finally opening up on the difficult period.


“Right now, we feel energized and excited about all of the things we’ve been building toward.


“We’re also focused on our foundation. So much of the work we do includes the philanthropic space.


“There’s been such an outpouring of love and support. I’m really grateful that I was able to be with my husband to support him, especially during that time.


“What’s so beautiful is to look at the legacy that his grandmother was able to leave on so many fronts.


“Certainly, in terms of female leadership, she is the most shining example of what that looks like.


“I feel deep gratitude to have been able to spend time with her and get to know her.


“I feel fortunate and I continue to be proud to have had a nice warmth with the matriarch of the family.


“It’s been a complicated time, but my husband, ever the optimist, said ‘Now she’s reunited with her husband’.” Meghan Markle said in a lengthy interview with Variety. She also discussed a number of different topics.

One of the most interesting was her statement that she doesn’t think she’ll ever act again.


“No, I’m done,” she said.


“I guess never say never, but my intention is to absolutely not.”


When asked how she feels about going through the process of monarchy and then becoming a private citizen again, she says;

”Every business has a model. I worked for NBCUniversal and the USA Network, and that was all part of a very large organization. Bonnie Hammer was my mentor. Very early on in “Suits,” she took me under her wing, and that was invaluable to me. Talk about a woman who can balance being a mom, creating so much in the industry and having a very strong sense of self! I would sit at breakfast with her, studying what she ordered, hanging on her every word.


”For me, it was always about being able to find your North Star within that model. Find someone who believes in you. As complex as any organization might be, there is always some thing in it that I think is positive. It’s important to focus on that. Some industries are very different, and yet, business models for a lot of things — they have a bottom line. That bottom line needs to be held, I suppose.”
