Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may have stepped down as royal family members and relocated to California, but that certainly doesn’t stop them from making headlines.
In fact, from the arrival of baby Lilibet and updates on Archie to their tell-all interview with Oprah and TIME magazine cover, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are all anyone can talk about.
This week, it was Meghan in particular who made headlines, as her former comments resurfaced where she appeared to foreshadow her royal exit.
In the 2015 interview with InStyle, a pre-royal Meghan talked prioritising yourself and the importance of saying ‘no’. And unsurprisingly, since resurfacing this week, her comments have gone viral.
‘I think the biggest part of being a girl boss in the office, at home, or anywhere you go is just knowing your value,’ Meghan explained. ‘As you get older, you become more comfortable in your skin and comfortable in saying “no” to things.’
She continued: ‘Rachel is an example of that on television, and as The Tig has grown as a brand, I’ve also learned that saying “no” is just as valuable as saying “yes”. It’s something that, I think, comes with age and really having a sense of your self-worth. And then you make choices based on that.’
When talking success, she later continued: ‘Be able to delegate, because there are some things that you just can’t do by yourself. I often joke on set that it takes a village to raise an actress. But building a strong team around you and being able to really communicate well with them is part of what’s going to bring you a higher level of success.’
What does it all mean?!
