To celebrate International Women’s Day, let’s take a look at some of Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex most inspirational quotes on Women.

The Duchess of Sussex isn’t afraid to speak out on things that really matter to her and has long been a vocal advocate for women’s issues. From her powerful speech on the importance of gender equality at a UN Women summit in 2015, to delivering a heartfelt speech about women’s suffrage while on a royal tour of New Zealand in 2018.

To celebrate International Women’s Day, let’s take a look at some of Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex most inspirational quotes on Women

On Age

“As you get older, you become more comfortable in your skin and comfortable in saying no to things…I’ve also learned that saying no is just as valuable as saying yes. It’s something that, I think, comes with age and really having a sense of your self-worth. And then you make choices based on that.”

Know your Value

“I think the biggest part of being a girl boss in the office, at home or anywhere you go is just knowing your value.”

Find a balance

“Take things with a grain of salt, and find balance within your life. On your lunch break, leave to go and get some fresh air. You don’t need to make your life your job. I have to find that balance for myself, as well…I think you have to make time for yourself so that work doesn’t become the end-all be-all.”

Be Kind to Yourself

We just need to be kinder to ourselves. If we treated ourselves the way we treated our best friend, can you imagine how much better off we would be?”

You Are Enough

You are complete with or without a partner. You are enough just as you are.” —The Tig, her former lifestyle website

International Women’s Day visit to Dagenham, 2020

The Duchess of Sussex has called on teenage boys to “value, appreciate and protect” the women in their lives, on a surprise school visit ahead of International Women’s Day. And she urged them to “set the example for some men who are not seeing it that same way”.

International Women’s Day panel discussion, 2019

“Your confidence comes in knowing that a woman by your side, not behind you, is actually something you shouldn’t be threatened about but, opposed to that, you should feel really empowered in having that additional support that this is really about us working together.


“That’s what gender equality means for me and having men part of that conversation saying there’s nothing threatening about a woman coming up to the same level, it’s our safety in numbers, this is our power and our strength as a team.”

UN Women Conference, 2015

“Women need a seat at the table, they need an invitation to be seated there, and in some cases, where this is not available, they need to create their own table. We need a global understanding that we cannot implement change effectively without women’s political participation.”

Create and Cultivate online platform, 2016

“You don’t have to play dress up to be a feminist. You are a feminist exactly the way you are. You can be a woman who wants to look good and still stand up for the equality of women. There’s no uniform for feminism; you are a feminist exactly the way you are.”

Meghan Markle open letter, 2014

“You need to know that you’re enough. A mantra that has now ingrained itself so deeply within me that not a day goes by without hearing it chime in my head. That five pounds lost won’t make you happier, that more make-up won’t make you prettier, that the now iconic saying from Jerry Maguire – ‘you complete me’ – frankly, isn’t true. You are complete with or without a partner. You are enough just as you are.”

UN Women Conference, 2015

“Women make up more than half of the world’s population and potential, so it is neither just nor practical for their voices, for our voices, to go unheard at the highest levels of decision-making.”

InStyle interview, 2015

“I think the biggest part of being a girl boss in the office, at home, or anywhere you go is just knowing your value.”

The Royal Foundation Forum, 2018

“I hear a lot of people saying, when talking about girls’ empowerment and women as well, you’ll often hear people saying, ‘You’re helping them find their voices’, I fundamentally disagree with that. Women don’t need to find their voice. They need to feel empowered to use it and people need to be encouraged to listen.”

University of Johannesburg visit, 2019

“When we empower girls hungry for education, we cultivate women who are emboldened to effect change within their communities and globally.”

UN Women Conference, 2015

“It is said that girls with dreams become women with vision. May we empower each other to carry out such vision — because it isn’t enough to simply talk about equality. One must believe it. And it isn’t enough to simply believe in it. One must work at it. Let us work at it. Together. Starting now.”

Elle Magazine Canada, 2015

“Be kind to yourself. Truly, if we treated ourselves as well as we treated our best friends we would be a million miles ahead of the game.”

New Zealand royal tour, 2018

“Women’s suffrage is about feminism, but feminism is about fairness. Suffrage is not simply about the right to vote but also about what that represents: the basic and fundamental human right of being able to participate in the choices for your future and that of your community, the involvement and voice that allows you to be a part of the very world that you are a part of.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex popularity was not a threat to heir position. The institution, didn’t HAVE to do any of smear campaign, they CHOSE to.

The sussexes popularity threat wasn’t just to William. But the entire establishment. The Sussexes led with compassion and were able to demonstrate significant impact without the Royal Rota and a lot of the red tape. That would have led to scrutiny of exactly how the Firm is run down to its expenses.

How much does it really cost to be a “patron of Patronages”. How many Patronages actually benefit from having a member of the Royal Family? Exactly what impact do the Royal Family have as a whole on the community and does this impact justify its existence and the money spent on it?

The Royal Family rely heavily on the British media to prop up its existence. The Duke and Duchess of Sussexe did not. Their brand was popular on social media alone and they were already not only globally recognisable but charities actually WANTED to work with them.

To add insult to injury, Meghan’s brilliance and easy communication skills with young professionals meant that the old fashioned senior aides’ jobs were threatened. What exactly is the point of these aides lurking around in the palace?

To add insult to injury, the Duchess of Sussex was not only shining but “shining while black”. And her husband the Duke wanted the whole world to know it. His love for her was the final nail in the coffin for the firm. Love in the Royal Family isn’t exactly celebrated.

The Firm needed to reestablish its relevance but it also needed the media to divert the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attention back to who it was originally intended. But the British media is a beast that needed to be fed. Rumours of an affair made the situation more desperate.

So Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex was offered up as the sacrificial lamb. The British media began to sing from the same script – while she became ungrateful, non-conforming and disrespectful siting unconfirmed sources and without corroborating events, William wife became the “saviour”.

This ofcourse was an easy narrative to spread by the British media- they knew they could rely on the ignorance and racism of some of its followers to do its work for them. Alas, they did not succeed. The entire world isn’t stupid or racist, Thank God for that.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey is the most searched interview in Google Trends history.

The search engine published its “Year in Search” list for 2021 on 8 December, finding that the interview dominated searches in March.

During the two-hour sit-down interview, which aired in the US on 7 March and a day later in the UK, the couple made several revealing but not so much surprising (if you were following Harry and Meghan honestly) statements.

Meghan Markle said she had felt suicidal while living and working as a member of the royal family and that when she tried to seek professional help, she was told it wouldn’t be good for the institution.

Prince Harry and Meghan officially stepped down from their duties as senior members of the royal family in March 2020.

Elsewhere in the interview, Harry revealed that he does not have a relationship with his brother, Prince William.

“The relationship is space, at the moment. Time heals all things, hopefully,” he said.

He also revealed he had been “financially” cut off by his family and that his father, Prince Charles, was not picking up his calls.
