Meghan Markle visited her former high school for her newest Archetypes podcast on Spotify, in which she investigates whether the students are ‘labeled’ or ‘given the room to be human.’
The Duchess of Sussex was joined by Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell and actor and trans actress Michaela Jaé Rodriquez for a discussion ‘about expressing one’s identity and accepting the complexities that just make each of us unique.’
Dr. Shefali Tsabary, the poet Amanda Gorman, and numerous students from Meghan’s high school are also featured in this episode.
The latest Archetypes episode featuring the Duchess of Sussex was published today. Beyond the Archetype: Human, Being is the title.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, attend the Invictus Games Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge.
Meghan begins the episode by stating, “There is an ordinary piece of art in my living room.” It has a rectangular form that resembles a plaque. And it just states “humankind” – be both.
It was given to me by my buddy Jen a few days ago, and it never fails to make me grin.
Because I adore her and our friendship – it reminds me of her, we’ve been really close since we were 17 – but also because it’s true. The human race – be both.
It prompted me to consider other sorts of wordplay with resonance, and I especially recalled something I was told many years ago.
You are a human just being, not simply a human being.
The woman who told me this was attempting to remind me to be kinder to myself, similar to the expression “don’t let perfect be the enemy of good.”
“Well, this is just another version of the same type of advice; you’re a human being; just being”
And as I reflect on what we’ve discussed so far in this podcast and the many ways my guests and I have reflected on the girls we once were and the women we’ve become, I wanted to revisit a significant part of my origin story: my high school.
The last episode of Archetypes was ranked number 77 in the US charts as of 1 p.m. yesterday, behind a collection of lullabies, indicating that the show’s popularity among US listeners has declined.
Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex attended the 2021 Salute To Freedom Gala on November 10, 2017 at Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum.
The ranking for ‘Episodes’ is determined solely by the number of unique listeners on that day.
