I have a Meghan Markle problem. I'm obsessed with her. Her love story, how she's fought to remain her own person despite the pressures of being a brown girl in the royal family. I love that she's a brown girl with a black mama. And not an "oh excuse my blackness, please don't let offend you" black woman. A black woman, with dreads and all. Yes! I need to see more of her, I feel, like we're not getting enough Meghan. Is that just me?
Anyways, so back to this photo/video. Have you seen it. It's so great! Look at this sweet little brown girl who is like whoa, there is going to be a girl that looks like me in the palace. Representation matters. But look at Meghan. She doesn't just say hello, doesn't just shake her hand, SHE HUGS HER. I love it. That type of warmness and genuine caring can't be taught. And do you know what she said to this little girl? "Meghan told me that I can achieve whatever I want to achieve...It was a dream come true." The royals are lucky to have her.
