Meghan went on to say that she left Deal or No Deal because she didn’t like the way it felt to her. “The job was nice,” she says, “but I was not grateful for the sense it made me feel.” I was surrounded on stage by smart women, but that wasn’t the reason we were there.

I’d leave with a pit in my stomach, knowing that I was much more than what was being objectified on stage.” Markle recalled a backstage incident in which a woman who ran the show couldn’t properly pronounce her last name at the time and would say, “Markle, suck it in! Markle, suck it in!”

The Duchess of Sussex’s most latest podcast guest was Paris Hilton, also during their discussion, the Duchess revealed that when she was younger, she felt “final judgment and envy” towards Hilton as she was always  “the clever one” and Hilton was “the pretty one.” Meghan spoke about growing up in Los Angeles and Paris at same time, saying, “I was this nerd, My mind couldn’t imagine what we would discuss considering how much of your identity was placed on you, or adopted , or you embraced, or you used to build a career – was about not relying on intelligence.”

The Duchess of Sussex spoke with comedian Iliza Shlesinger, who is also girl mom, about just how she desires her daughter to grow up. In response to a question about her daughter’s future, Meghan expressed her wish that her daughter, whom she shares with Prince Harry, Archie Harrison, and her husband, be “intelligent and authenticity. Lilibet Diana should defy stigmas and not be defined by her outward appearance,” she says.
