“I had never met her before, and at my very first audition for her, she stopped me mid-scene and said so simply, you need to know that you’re enough.” Meghan Markle, Darling Magazine
On Saturday I was glued to the television screen like many others. I predicted that the Royal Wedding was going to be a one of a kind event, but I didn’t know it would impact me in the way that it did. The Royal Wedding touched my heart in a special way and I am still trying to come down off the high.
During the Royal Wedding I saw more than the elegant wedding dress. I saw more than the handsome Prince that adores his beautiful Princess. I saw more than the prestige and their new roles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex. I saw a woman’s strength, courage, resilience, perseverance, and patience. I saw that Meghan Markle embraced her identity as a biracial woman and created her new normal.
As she first entered Windsor Castle, without saying anything, her walk screamed boldness! I noticed Meghan Markle’s vibrant and contagious smile throughout the wedding, the smile that showed the world that she knows who she is, and she is willing to let her light shine so that the world can see. The smile that showed she loves, supports, and honors her Prince … but, she first loved and accepted herself!
In Darling Magazine, Megan Markle shared the story of how she became exhausted in auditioning for role after role. She had a Ford Explorer that was breaking down on her and she had to enter the car through the trunk. Imagine that! The American Princess, Duchess of Sussex, knows what it is like to struggle and overcome! During an audition, April Webster shared these words with her, “You need to know that you’re enough.” These words changed the course of her life. Now, she is affectionally known as our American Princess!
How would your life be different if you knew that you were enough
