And she added that she wants to “stop whispering and tiptoeing around” through fear of being misconceived in life.
She told her Archetypes podcast on Spotify: “You’re allowed to set a boundary, you’re allowed to be clear.
“That does not make you demanding, it does not make you difficult – it makes you clear.”
The California-based mum-of-two went on to set the record straight, warning that being “particular” and having certain mannerisms should also not be misconceived as being “difficult”.
She told actress Issa Rae and talk show host Ziwe Fumudoh: “I also know that I will find myself towering and tiptoeing into a room.
“I don’t know if you ever do that… the thing I find the most embarrassing when you say a sentence but the intonation goes up like it’s a question.
“How you’re conceived misconceived or portrayed?
“Yeah, your particular you can receive it that way, but if he describes you that way to someone else to go. Yeah. What is that?”
The label of Meghan being “Duchess Difficult” stretches back to 2018 following rumours about her “dictatorial” behaviour and 5am emails – which led to an aide quitting.
Samantha Cohen, who has been nicknamed “Samantha the Panther” over her feisty attitude, left her role after the birth of Harry and Meghan’s son Archie.
According to the Daily Express, Meghan was given the moniker “Duchess Difficult” by Royal insiders.
Concluding her response to the label, Meghan told the latest episode released on Tuesday: “I think a high tide raises all ships right.
“We’re all going to succeed so let’s make sure it’s really great because of shared success for everybody.”
