Meghan Markle opens up on parenting and says Archie views her and Harry as ‘superheroes’
Meghan Markle chatted with fellow mum’s over the weekend, as she carried out a surprise virtual visit with MomsRising, which offers support to mums who are feeling the effects of unemployment, lack of childcare and health issues because of the Covid crisis. During the video call she offered parents practical advice and a listening ear, and even spoke about her own experience as a mother.
Meghan, who is currently pregnant with her second child, revealed how her son 23-month-old son Archie views her and husband Prince Harry as “superheroes”.
When chatting to the group, the Duchess reminded them to see themselves through their children’s eyes whenever they are experiencing self-doubt.
This comment was well received by the other mum’s, according to the organisations executive director and CEO, Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner.
After the event, she told Hello magazine: “The meeting with Prince Harry and Meghan was a huge boost for MomsRising members, some of whom are struggling without jobs, child care, paid leave, health care, and other essentials during the pandemic.”
She continued: “The Duke and Duchess were kind, compassionate, and incredibly supportive, both on a personal level and of the policies that would help get their lives back on track.
“The Duchess also reminded us that, especially in times of self-doubt, we should take the opportunity to see ourselves through our children’s eyes.
“Because to our children, we’re superheroes. That really resonated with so many of us.”
MomsRising is a grassroots organisation that works to achieve economic security for all mums, women and families in the US.
