Meghan Markle looked casual chic while sharing how she conquers her fears to keep true to her convictions during the recently held Fortune Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit.


The Duchess of Sussex joined the summit remotely from her Santa Barbara home with Prince Harry to discuss how she stays true to her convictions and how she handles any fear that goes along with it. 

The royal couple frequently headlined throughout the year. The development of their lives became the subject of much discussion since they announced stepping down as working members of the royal family at the beginning of the year.

But now, almost a year later, Meghan shared how she learned to remain steadfast, especially when the decision ends up being less popular with the family. Looking relaxed in a chic strappy top, Meghan said:

"When you really know who you are and you know what your belief system is and you live by truth, then I think that can start to peel away the layers of where the fear comes in."


When making a decision, Meghan recommended putting faith ahead of fear, an approach she found helpful before taking any action. But to Meghan, knowing that she lives in her truth makes all the difference in the world.

"Regardless of what anyone says, you'll be able to go to sleep with a clear conscience," Meghan added. "Most people are afraid of the unknown, but sometimes you need to take that leap."



According to reports, Meghan Markle could return to the UK before the New Year since the upcoming trial date for her privacy claim against Associated Newspapers Ltd is set for 11 January 2021.

Travel restrictions due to the novel coronavirus pandemic rendered Prince Harry and Meghan Markle unable to return to the UK. If current health regulations continue on the current standing, Meghan would have to return to the UK, and self isolate for two weeks before the trial date.



The pandemic did provide the young royal family with a precious silver lining. Because of all the time spent in quarantine at home, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got to witness their 1-year-old son Archie's first milestones.

While speaking to Malala Yousafzai in celebration of International Day of the Girl, Meghan said that she feels grateful and fortunate to have been there to witness her son's growth, from the first step he took to his first run and fall. 


Passionate about making the world a better place for her son to grow up in, Meghan Markle also recently responded to being named the most trolled person in the world last year. 

Advocating for mental well-being, Meghan said that people passing off lies as the truth can be incredibly damaging to someone's emotional and mental health. While the duchess admitted that she found being the most trolled person stressful, she found ways to prevent it from shaping her future.
