The Duchess of Sussex on ambition

Meghan Markle’s first podcast episode was titled ‘The Misconception of Ambition’ and featured her friend, tennis ace Serena Williams.

Speaking about her experience with ambition, Meghan said: “I don’t remember ever personally feeling the negative connotation behind the word ambitious until I started dating my now husband.”

Serena Williams also addressed how her competitiveness has been portrayed as a professional sportswoman.

Archie in South Africa

Later on in the podcast, Meghan detailed how during the Sussexes’ royal tour of South Africa in 2019, a terrifying incident took place at the housing unit their son Archie was staying in.

While Archie was being looked after by his beloved nanny Lauren, Meghan said a fire had broken out in the room he was supposed to be sleeping in.

Meghan said: “In that amount of time that she went downstairs, the heater in the nursery caught on fire. There was no smoke detector. Someone happened to just smell smoke down the hallway, went in, fire extinguished. He was supposed to be sleeping in there.”

Meghan found out about the fire after completing a royal engagement and straight afterwards had to go out with Harry and complete another one.

She said: “There was this moment where I’m standing on a tree stump and I’m giving this speech to women and girls, and we finish the engagement, we get in the car and they say there’s been a fire at the residence. What? There’s been a fire in the baby’s room.”

The Duchess added: “We came back. And, of course, as a mother, you go, ‘Oh, my God, what?’ Everyone’s in tears, everyone’s shaken.

“And what do we have to do? Go out and do another official engagement? I said, ‘This doesn’t make any sense’.”

Meghan’s pregnancies were ‘stressful’

While Serena Williams detailed how much she loved being pregnant, Meghan said she spent her pregnancies being “tired”.

The Duchess said to her friend: “You made pregnancy look so sexy, I just waddled around [laughs]. I was just tired, I was tired. Oh my god.”

Serena added: “I was the annoying one. You were the one under a lot of stress,” to which Meghan replied: “Yeah, it’s true.”

A few months after the birth of her first child Archie, Meghan and Harry announced their plans to step down as working members of the Royal Family.

During her second pregnancy with daughter Lilibet, Meghan and Harry gave a high-profile interview about their royal exit to TV host Oprah Winfrey which received global attention.
