Meghan Says She Was Treated Like A Black Woman For The First Time When She Started Dating Harry

Fact checked
Meghan and Harry

Meghan Markle has claimed that she only “started to understand what it was like to be treated like a Black woman” after she started dating Prince Harry.

During the second episode of her Archetypes podcast, which featured singer Mariah Carey, the Duchess said: “I mean, if there’s any time in my life that it’s been more focused on my race, it’s only once I started dating my husband.

The second podcast aimed to look at the “complexities surrounding the ‘diva'” and the negative connotations associated with the word.

Breitbart reports: At the beginning of their conversation, Markle told Carey that she had been “so formative” for her while she was growing up, because the singer was a fellow “mixed” woman.

“You were so formative for me. Representation matters so much,” Markle said. “When you are a woman, and you don’t see a woman who looks like you somewhere in a position of power or influence, or even just on the screen — you came onto the scene, and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, someone kind of looks like me.’”

Markle then recalled an article she once read about Halle Berry, and how the actress was asked a question about “how she felt being treated as a mixed-race woman in the world.”

“And her response was her saying, ‘Well, your experience through the world is how people view you,’ So she said because she was darker in color, she was being treated as a black woman, not as a mixed woman,” Markle explained.

“And I think for us, it’s so different, because we’re light-skinned. You’re not treated as a black woman. You’re not treated as a white woman. You sort of fit in between,” Markle told Carey.

The Duchess of Sussex went on to say “If there’s any time in my life that it’s been more focused on my race, it’s only once I started dating my husband. Then I started to understand what it was like to be treated like a black woman, because up until then I had been treated like a mixed woman. And things really shifted.”

Carey responded by saying “That’s an interesting thing, a ‘mixed woman,’ because I always thought it should be okay to say, ‘I’m mixed.’ Like, it should be okay to say that, but people want you to choose.”

“They want to put you in a box and categorize you,” the singer added.


    • The lightened skin? The straightened hair?? And then, marries into the ‘racist’ family, yeah? Tell your mother that.

  1. Yes they do categorise everyone and at birth too They do it by blood type Theure different to most people. Then it’s by flavour and or utility, after that.

  2. The best clue to people’s reality is to judge how their enemies treat them Only powerful people have powerful enemies and Meghan has them in spades. But if they really wanted her silenced them she would have an accident or catch covid although they can’t be that overt very often. It’s too dangerous for them.
    They hate the truth. They aren’t superheroes and they don’t have magical powers. They’re just like everyone else except normal people arent cannibal predators and pedophiles.

  3. From Eye Witness News, South Africa –

    “Legendary South African actor and Lion King star Dr John Kani has been forced to deny ever having met Meghan Markle after she seemed to suggest the pair had met in London at the premiere of the live-action film.

    In an interview with US magazine – The Cut, Markle claimed a “South African male cast member” had told her at the premiere that her marriage to Prince Harry had been celebrated by South Africans in the same way as Nelson Mandela’s prison release in 1990.

    The publication reports the former Suits actress as having said, “He looked at me, he said, ‘I just need you to know: When you married into this family, we rejoiced in the streets the same we did when Mandela was freed from prison’.”

    But Kani, who told the Daily Mail that he was the only South African member in the cast of Disney’s remake of the animated classic, says he was in Hollywood at the time the alleged encounter took place.

    “‘I have never met Meghan Markle. This seems like something of a faux pas by her. I have never met the Duchess at all. I am the only South African member of the cast and I did not attend the premiere in London,” he said.

    He added that he was baffled by the Duchess’s claims. “I am truly surprised by this.””

    No wonder she want to be president of the United States – Biden better watch out – he’s got stiff competition, lol.
