However, in a new behind-the-scenes look at the Duchess of Sussex, Bryony Gordon of The Telegraph followed her to a recent appearance at the Luminary Bakery, a grassroots organisation that helps to empower disadvantaged women through training and employment opportunities.
During the day, Meghan stopped to give an empowering speech.
“One of the things I have realised since being here [in the UK] is that people have an expectation when I’m coming somewhere, so I’m like, 'Let’s just be really relaxed, keep everyone nice and chilled, because at the end of the day we’re all just women,'" she said. "We all have a story to tell, and I feel honoured that I am getting to hear yours.”
Gordon writes that the Duchess "told me that she didn’t want people to love her -- she just wanted them to be able to hear her."
Markle also wanted to make it clear that despite her royal privileges, she is just an ordinary woman.
“I find that when you strip all the layers away, as people, and especially as women, we can find deep connection with each other, and a shared understanding."
