Meghan Markle Reflects On Moving Back To The U.S. During Racial Unrest: ‘It Was Just Devastating’

🚨 POLL: Should Meghan Markle condemn the riots happening in U.S. cities?


Meghan Markle claimed that she felt the political and racial unrest, after she and Prince Harry moved to the United States after living in Canada for almost a decade, according to Fox News.

During an interview with the co-founder and CEO of The 19th*, Emily Ramshaw, Markle discussed the general unrest that has enveloped the nation.

“To come back and to just see this state of affairs, I think at the onset, if I’m being honest, it was just devastating,” she said. “It was so sad to see where our country was in that moment.”

“If there’s any silver lining in that, I would say that in the weeks after the murder of George Floyd, in the peaceful protests that you were seeing, in the voices that were coming out, in the way that people were actually owning their role… it shifted from sadness to a feeling of absolute inspiration, because I can see that the tide is turning,” Markle explained.

“From my standpoint, it’s not new to see this undercurrent of racism and certainly unconscious bias, but I think to see the changes that are being made right now is really — it’s something I look forward to being a part of,” Markle said. “And being part of using my voice in a way that I haven’t been able to of late. So, yeah, it’s good to be home.”

The former royal couple recently moved into a place in Santa Barbara, a representative for the couple previously confirmed to Fox News.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved into their family home in July of this year,” a spokesperson said.

“They have settled into the quiet privacy of their community since their arrival and hope that this will be respected for their neighbors, as well as them as a family.”
