Besides being one of the most famous and most influential couple there is, Harry and Meghan are just like any of us. They have a beautiful family and live their lives to the fullest despite the fact that their relationship with the rest of the royal family is still a rocky one, especially following their Netflix documentary and Harry’s all-tell memoir Spare in which he revealed a number of private details about the members of the Firm.
In an interview with Variety, the Duchess of Sussex gave fans an insight into the daily work lives she and Harry lead, revealing that the two share an office in their California home since they both work mostly from home. Not having regular jobs allows them to spend more time with their children, Archie and Lilibet Diana who have recently earned their titles of Prince and Princess.
“We’ll never get this time back. I make breakfast, and we get the kids set for the day. We do a lot of joint calls and Zooms, but also try to divide what we can focus our energies on so we can accomplish even more,” Meghan said.
“My husband is on a 24-hour time zone, where half of your life is waking up as the other half is going to sleep. It’s kind of the reverse of what I went through living in the U.K. He’s very good at responding on text. Me, I try to be as fast as possible on email. I’ve always said, if it takes less than five minutes, do it now.”
When they travel to Los Angeles, the two commute together, and according to Meghan, the secret to their success is snacks. “It’s funny. People sometimes think we live in Los Angeles, but we’re a good two hours outside of it. We’re commuters. We drove down recently for a day of back-to-back meetings, equipped with chocolate chip cookies the size of my toddler’s head,” Meghan said.
Meghan went further and shared something she has never spoken of before; how she and her husband spend the night when their children are asleep.
“Once we have the kids to bed and have played a little Wordle, or [I have] done my ten minutes of DuoLingo,” Meghan shared.
“After these two things, if we turn on the TV, which is fairly rare, we are like most people with endless, endless, endless searching until you get so tired of searching you end up not watching anything.”
