Although they eventually landed in Montecito, California, about two hours north of Los Angeles, the couple are quickly entry into the world of entertainment.

Markle said she and Prince Harry want to “do something fun”.

Prince Harry and Markle are parents of two young children: Archie Harrison, 3, and Lilibet Diana, 1. The activist said he would be supportive if his children eventually wanted to enter show business.

“I would say, ‘Great!’ When you become a parent, you sincerely want your children to find the things that bring them complete joy. They are our children, of course, and they are part of a legacy, a tradition and a family that will have other expectations. ” she said. “But I want them to be able to carve their own way. If it’s the entertainment industry, fine. And also, good luck. There are so many people who will talk about what opened doors for my children. he still wants talent and a lot of grit. We’re creating multidimensional, interesting, kind and creative people. That’s who our kids are. “

It’s only a matter of time before Markle is portrayed on screen, in something other than a Lifetime movie. The former actress was asked if it is “strange” to know that someone is likely to play her in the future. (Cough… like on Netflix The crown.)

“I haven’t thought about it much, to be honest. It’s all weird. You have to compartmentalize. Anyone who talks about me or selects an actor to play me will be a caricature of me that was created for a company that makes people earn money. A lot of money. Once you get them apart, it’s a lot easier to say, “OK. It really has nothing to do with me. “It really isn’t. It’s a hard lesson to deal with,” Markle replied.

As for the advice she would give the actor, Markle said she hopes the person “finds the softness, the playfulness and the laughter. The stupidity. I just hope you find the dimensions. Plus, you can call me!”

Markle noted how the entertainment industry “has changed a lot since I was a part of it”, but there is a part that has remained the same and has something in common with the monarchy.

“Every company has a model. I worked for NBCUniversal and the USA Network, and it was all part of a very large organization,” Markle recalled, noting that Vice President Bonnie Hammer was her “mentor.”

“For me, it has always been about being able to find your North Star within that pattern. Find someone who believes in you. As complex as any organization may be, there is always something about it that I think is positive.” Markle continued. “It’s important to focus on this. Some industries are very different, yet the business models for many things: they have a bottom line. This bottom line has to be maintained, I suppose.”
