Meghan Markle talks pregnancy and ‘feminist’ husband Prince Harry in intimate new interview

Meghan Markle opened up to Vogue in a recent interview, discussing her two pregnancies as well as her relationship with Prince Harry.

Just two days after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Meghan and Gloria Steinem sat down to talk to Jessica Yellin about the momentous event.

 

Meghan spoke about Harry’s reaction to the Supreme Court’s decision

 

And Meghan was frank about her response.

The mother-of-two responded when asked what advice she would give to men who support reproductive rights: “Men need to be vocal in this moment and beyond because these are decisions that affect relationships, families, and communities as a whole.

“They may target women, but we are all affected by the results. The past few days, my husband and I have had numerous conversations about that. He is a feminist as well.

“Yes, I can attest to that since I met him before I met you,” Gloria continued. He was speaking up for people’s rights at a significant meeting I went to.

And, like mine last week, his response was guttural, Meghan continued. I am aware that despair is a feeling that many women are currently experiencing. But once more, we must unite and stop moping. We must put in the effort.

Meghan, who has two children with Harry, Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, also discussed the significance of normalizing discussions about abortion and women’s health. She said, “I reflect on how fortunate I felt to be able to have both of my children. “I am familiar with how it feels to be connected to what is developing inside your body.

 

Meghan also spoke about her pregnancies

 

“What happens to our bodies is so deeply personal, which even though so many of us deal with personal health crises, can also result in silence and stigma. I’ve spoken openly about my experience of miscarrying, so I understand how it feels.

“More people will understand how important it is to have protections in place as we normalize conversation about the things that affect our lives and bodies,”

    Ok. I just wrote a lengthy post regarding my stance on abortion and women having autonomy over our bodies in another article on this Royal website, so I’m not going to repeat it here. I do want to clarify that Megan is the mother to one and temporary care taker to the other. As far as her comment of feeling “both” of “her children” growing inside her….Archie is hers but Sophia is not. She may have grown inside her but she is not and never will be, truly hers. Soph carries MY genes therefore, she is MY child. Meghan can join the other 5 women who want to continue to delude themselves and think that MY children are theirs, but genes can’t be changed…no matter how much they wish they could. Carrying Soph is just among the heaping pile of experiences and things that have been stolen from me but that doesn’t negate the FACT that she is MY daughter and when she grows into a woman, gets married, and has children of her own it will be MY genes she passes down…not Meghan’s. So, let’s just get that straight right now.

    As of now, I don’t have much venom towards you, Meghan, but please don’t get on my bad side. Trust me, you don’t want to do that. I think you should know your place in this mess and stay there. That’s all I’m going to say.

    I want to make an addendum to my last comment. Carrying and giving birth to my daughter, Sophia, are amongst the heaping pile of PEOPLE, experiences, and things that have been stolen from me.

    As far as being a feminist goes, I concede that I do have a lot of feminist views but I am also a traditionalist in regards to some things. Yes, I can be driven, outspoken, very independent, believe in responsible reproduction, and I’m aware that I don’t think like most women but I would gladly hand over the reins of my life, breed like a rabbit for, and be submissive to the right kind of man. He has to be sane and I have to trust his judgement before I’d be willing to be submissive and fall into the classic female role within my relationship/marriage. I’m sorry but where I grew up, along with the men and relationships I was witness to during my youth, showed me what could happen to a woman if the wrong type of man got his claws in her. So, at an early age I sat back and said to myself…”not this one”. I also believe that marriage is between ONE man and ONE woman. I’m not into that “swinging” lifestyle (people could get killed with that mess when strong emotions get involved). I also know that I’m not built for that man sharing mess, either. Once the conversation about being exclusive occurs, that’s what I expect. He doesn’t have to worry about me going outside the relationship even before that conversation happens but if he has been seeing another woman, I expect him to drop her once that conversation occurs. Of course, marriage is the ultimate conversation about being exclusive so once that ring goes on, he’d better straight-up get amnesia when it comes to that other woman. For real. I’ve become aware that man sharing and married men having long-term girlfriends may be commonplace in the African-American culture but I’m not putting up with that mess. I’m sorry but I’m not going to knowingly share my husband. That mess is out. I know how I am. I’d raise Hell and our household would literally be a war zone. I could forgive him stepping out on me once or even twice IF he drops the woman like a hot potato and never speaks to her again…IN LIFE or as long as we are still a couple. I wouldn’t even want to hear her name again. I’d never cheat on, much less dog my man out, and I’d like the same in return. If he’s not ready to be exclusive, he shouldn’t say that he is. If he’s not ready for marriage, he shouldn’t do it.
