8 Life Lessons From Meghan Markle Guaranteed To Inspire

Smart, funny, creative and completely self-contained, Meghan Marke is more than a fashionable pretty face; she’s a witty and wise woman who not only charmed her prince but the UK as well. Today, we are sharing 8 pieces of advice the royal bride-to-be has shared over the years. From gratitude and dinner party ideas to the best way to protect your relationship, we’re highlighting a few key life lessons from the Duchess to be.

 

Use Your Voice (and Encourage Others To As Well)

 

“It’s really important that young women be reminded that their involvement matters and that their voice is heard. Even if it feels like it’s small, it really can make an impact.”

 

 

Refuse To Be Defined By Anyone Else

 

Make a choice: continue living your life feeling muddled in this abyss of self-misunderstanding, or you find your identity independent of it. You push for colour-blind casting; you draw your own box. You introduce yourself as who you are, not what colour your parents happen to be.

 

Use Your Past As A Source Of Gratitude

 

“Reflecting on where I came from helps me to appreciate and balance what I have now.”

 

Know What Feminism Means To You

 

“You can be a woman who wants to look good and still stand up for the equality of woman.”

 

Be Kind To Yourself

 

“If we treated ourselves as well as we treated our best friend, can you imagine?”

 

Stop Trying To “Do It All”

 

Be able to delegate, because there are some things that you just can’t do by yourself. Meghan

 

Know How To Make One Signature Dish (Hey, It Could End In A Royal Proposal)

 

“If you have an Ina Garten-level roasted-chicken recipe, it’s a game changer. I bring that to dinner parties and make a lot of friends.”

 

Keep Some Parts Of Your Relationship Just For The Two Of You

“We’re a couple. We’re in love….I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us.”
