Meghan Markle "Doesn't Want People To Love Her," As She Has Other Uses For Her Position As A Royal, Close Friend Says

November 5, 2019 12:20

During an interview with Bryony Gordon of The Telegraph recently, the Duchess of Sussex discussed mental health and how being vulnerable is one of the greatest strengths of humans.

According to Gordon, Meghan shared that she often encourages her husband, Prince Harry, to speak openly about mental health.

Meghan Markle's focus as a royal

Gordon, who has been friends with the Duchess of Sussex since before she got married to Prince Harry, has shared some of the things Meghan has said about her goal and priorities.

Gordon wrote that one thing she has learned about Meghan was that the royal is "a doer not a wallower." The Duchess of Sussex is more focused on solving problems rather than dwelling on them.

She told me that she didn't want people to love her - she just wanted them to be able to hear her.

Even before she became a member of the royal family, Meghan Markle has always used her position to champion some causes especially when it comes to girls' education and equality.

It, therefore, makes sense that as a royal with an even wider reach, this still remains her priority.

Mixed reactions

It's expected that many of Meghan's words, even reported ones, are met with mixed responses from royal followers. And this wasn't any different.

While some understood the Duchess' stand, others insisted that if she's passing any message at all, she isn't doing a good job of it.

The Duchess of Sussex has had more than her fair share of criticisms and she herself has revealed that this can take its toll sometimes. But her decision to keep forging ahead despite that is one that can be respected. People with a purpose tend to stick with that regardless of setbacks.
