Meghan Markle Hopes the World Will One Day See Her and Prince Harry as Just a Couple Who's in Love
Meghan Markle is hopeful that soon enough the world acknowledges her and Prince Harry as just a couple who is in love and not royals whose every move is criticized.
Meghan Markle is breaking the barriers and getting candid with the world in ITV’s documentary “Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.”
Apart from discussing the causes dear to their heart during their recently-concluded tour of Africa, Meghan also opened up about enduring the harsh tabloid attention since she joined the British royal family.
According to People Magazine, the Duchess of Sussex, while speaking to host Tom Bradby, revealed that she hopes people would focus on the love she shares with Harry.
In her words:
“I would hope that people, the world, will get to the point where they just see us as a couple who’s in love because I don’t wake up every day and identify as being anything other than who I’ve always been.”

Today, we are excited to be able to announce details for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s upcoming tour to Africa! 🇿🇦🇧🇼🇦🇴🇲🇼 • In just two weeks, Their Royal Highnesses will embark on this official tour focusing on community, grassroots leadership, women’s and girls’ rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment. This programme has been many months in the making, and The Duke and Duchess are eager to focus their energies on the great work being done in Southern Africa. From meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu to joining ‘Waves for Change’ on Monwabisi Beach, the South Africa programme will be educational and inspiring. The Duke is especially proud to continue the legacy left by his mother with her work in Angola as he joins Halo Trust again in an effort to rid the world of landmines. HRH will also travel to Malawi where he will check in on the British Army’s partnership with African Parks and will be working on the ground supporting local communities. The Duke is particularly proud to be able to deliver an exciting new initiative, a Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy three-country partnership which he designed and consulted with Governments in Namibia, Botswana and Angola to protect forest and wildlife corridors around the Okavango Delta. The Duchess will be working with local organisations to promote women and girls’ health and education, entrepreneurship and leadership. With such a textured culture and history, Their Royal Highnesses are grateful for the opportunity to connect with those on the ground in Southern Africa and to be inspired by the work being done and learn how they can be better supported. As President and Vice President of The Queens Commonwealth Trust and The Duke’s role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, The Duke and Duchess cannot wait to meet with young leaders mobilising change and adding to the beauty of these Commonwealth countries 🇿🇦🇧🇼🇦🇴🇲🇼 • “We look forward to seeing you soon!” • Photo ©️ PA images / Tim Graham - Getty Images / @Sentebale /@AfricanParksNetwork / @YouthAlert
The royal mom went on to disclose to Bradby that she never thought that the royal life would be easy. However, she didn’t think it would be unfair.
“I never thought that this would be easy, but I thought it would be fair. And that’s the part that’s really hard to reconcile.”
Prince Harry also joined his wife and spoke about how the negative press has hurt them in the past.
The duke explained that although putting on a brave face is part of the job, the remarks are especially hurtful because the majority of them are untrue.
Amid the candid conversations about the pressures of life in the spotlight, Meghan was still able to show off her love for Harry as the most important thing to her.
While recalling her conversations with Harry, she revealed the sweet nickname she calls her husband of more than a year.
People reports that she said:
“I have said for a long time to H, that’s what I call him, ‘It’s not enough to just survive something. That’s not the point of life. You have got to thrive. You have got to feel happy.’“
