Meghan Markle praises Prince Harry as a feminist and ‘beautiful’ father for Archie to look up to


MEGHAN Markle has praised Prince Harry as a feminist, as she hailed him as a ‘beautiful’ father for Archie to look up to.

The 39-year-old gushed over her husband in a candid chat with Gloria Steinem, as the pair chatted in what appears to be Meghan’s back garden. 

Meghan Markle shared a candid chat with activist Gloria Steinem

The mum to one-year-old Archie dressed casually to meet with the 86-year-old activist, who is known for her prominent role in the American feminist movement in America in the 1960s and 1970s.

The pair chatted about feminism in the candid interview, published in Yahoo, as the former actress praised Gloria for “everything you’ve accomplished”.

Meghan said: “It’s just such a fantastic way to see the breadth of your life thus far and everything you’ve accomplished, but also understanding where you come from and how you became a feminist. 

“As I’ve gotten older I’ve been able to understand that it’s not mutually exclusive to be a feminist and be feminine. 

She praised Prince Harry as a feminist and a beautiful father

“And to own that and harness your femininity and your identification as a woman in all of the different layers.”

Gloria pointed out you can be “feminist and be masculine and a guy”, prompting Meghan to use Prince Harry, 35, as an example.

She gushed: “Like my husband! I love that when he just came in he said, ‘You know that I’m a feminist too, right Gloria?! It’s really important to me that you know that.’”

Meghan and Gloria chatted about voting, activism and feminism

Gloria said it was “wonderful” the dad-of-one was engaged in this way, as Meghan continued to rave about him and his parenting skills. 

She continued: “But you need that. And I look at our son and what a beautiful example that he gets to grow up with a father who is so comfortable owning that as part of his own self-identification.

“That there’s no shame in being someone who advocates for fundamental human rights for everyone, which of course includes women.” 

Meghan says she’s glad Archie has a good role model to look up to

Gloria praised Harry, saying his influence as a “nurturing father” is particularly important.

“Because then your son will grow up knowing it’s OK to be loving and nurturing”, she added. 

Meghan replied with a “well said”, as she noted “I know it’ll mean a lot to him when I share that.”

The pair also chatted about voting, with Gloria saying: “If you don’t vote you don’t exist. It’s the only place where we are all equal: in the voting booth.” 

Meghan appeared starstruck by the activist, as she said: “People forget how hard women like you and so many others have fought for us just to be where we are right now.”

The two women said socially distanced in wooden chairs in a garden, believed to be Meghan’s, as her two dogs, Guy, a beagle, and Pula, black lab, wandered into the frame. 

A one minute 41 second video black-and-white clip was teased on social media, ahead of the release of the full interview earlier today.
