Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are rolling in it compared to most mortals, but compared with Harry’s big bro Prince William and Kate Middleton? Less so.
In a report in Vanity Fair, sources dish on their approach to royal life. First of all, it seems Meghan has adopted British sayings like "bits and bobs." And a source says that all of the rumors of Meghan’s tough-to-work-with demeanor are (slightly) off.
Spills an insider who reportedly works with her: "The papers like to use the word difficult. I’d say ‘'different.' It was hard for her. She didn’t have a support structure in place and she was getting used to living in a new country and being part of a very unique institution."
The insider continues that their financial restrictions mean very few staff members in comparison to Kate and William. As of now their, er, sparse staff includes nanny, security, a housekeeper, two assistants and two palace orderlies. Roughin' it!
HARRY ON FATHERHOOD
Meanwhile, during the Diana Award National Youth Mentoring Summit (an event honoring his late mother, Princess Diana), Harry opened up about the joys of parenthood.
He said: "I'm struck by a few things today, most of which is the power of the invisible role model. The person who may be sitting here today that doesn't realize that someone looks up to them, that -- for that person -- you inspire them to be kinder, better, greater, more successful, more impactful. Perhaps it's the newfound clarity I have as a father knowing that my son will always be watching what I do, mimicking my behavior, one day maybe even following in my footsteps."
"But it's not just my role as a father that shows me that; it's in the people I see every day that don't realize how inspirational they are to those watching," he continued. "From small acts of kindness to large measures of character -- each move that we make matters, especially when we don't think anyone is watching. That is when our true character comes to light."
