Meghan Markle finally releases first episode of her Archetypes podcast, August 23, 2022
Meghan Markle today claimed that she was forced to continue with her engagements while on a royal tour of South Africa despite being left in tears when her son Archie narrowly escaped a fire in his bedroom. The Duchess of Sussex recounted the experience during the tour in autumn 2019 on her long-awaited 'Archetypes' podcast, released on Spotify today, in a conversation with her close friend, tennis great Serena Williams. Meghan spoke of her distress after learning of the near-miss involving her son - which involved a heater in a nursery room catching fire - soon after delivering a speech to girls in the Nyanga township in Cape Town, before rushing back to see Archie and then having to leave him to carry out another official engagement. In a wide-ranging discussion on the first episode of her long-awaited 'Archetypes' podcast, the Duchess also hit out at those who criticised her for being 'ambitious' when she started dating Prince Harry. Entitled 'The Misconception of Ambition with Serena Williams', Meghan spoke to the tennis legend, who is one of her close friends, about double standards women face when they are labelled 'ambitious'. She also told of the 'pain' that she has suffered 'behind closed doors' and said she does not 'ever remember personally feeling the negative connotation behind the word ambitious, until I started dating my now husband'. The Duchess added: 'And apparently ambition is a terrible, terrible thing. For a woman that is, according to some.' Meghan, who now lives in California with Harry and their two children, also complained of a misconception 'that if you're an ambitious woman you have an agenda, you must be calculating or selfish or aggressive, or a climber', adding that 'the notion of ambition comes with many judgements and nuances - especially for women'.
