Writing in her blog, The Tig, Meghan spoke of how she struggled with her identity as a child. Now mother to Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor, Meghan spoke of a moment at school when she had to complete a compulsory census at school. Highlighting her struggle to be comfortable with her own identity, Meghan explained how she “felt incomplete” when asked to tick a box concerning her ethnicity.
Writing in her blog, Meghan said: “I didn’t tick a box.
“I left my identity blank.
“A question mark, an absolute incomplete – much like how I felt.”
Although the task of ticking one box may appear to be a simple one, Meghan revealed that the consequences of ticking one option but not the other would only make her think of the sadness of one her parents.
She added: “I put down my pen.
“Not as an act of defiance, but rather a symptom of my confusion.
“I couldn’t bring myself to do that, to picture the pit-in-her-belly sadness my mother would feel if she were to find out.”
Meghan and Prince Harry recently welcomed Archie to the world much to the excitement of millions of fans in every nation.
While there was some speculation that Meghan would have her child in the comfort of the pair’s new Frogmore Cottage home, the release of Archie’s birth certificate, revealed that he was in fact born in Portland Hospital in Westminster.
On top of the birth of their first child, the pair are also celebrating the anniversary of their marriage today.
