Since leaving the Royal Family last year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have carved out new lives for themselves in the US. Their American lifestyle has seen them sign huge deals to produce content for Netflix and Spotify. The couple settled in the star-studded area of Montecito, California last year where they moved into a sprawling mansion. Recently, Meghan, 40, and Harry, 37, also flew to the east coast as they embarked on a whistle-stop tour of New York City.
The trip was their first major public outing since the birth of their daughter Lilibet in June of this year.
This week Meghan also showed her US roots as she wrote to Congress calling for paid leave for parents.
Her letter recalled tough moments from her own childhood as well as speaking about her and Harry’s parenting of Lilibet, who is their second child after Archie, two.
The letter is the latest example of how the Sussexes have continued to campaign on a variety of issues after parting ways with the Royal Family.
In February of this year Buckingham Palace said Meghan and Harry would be stripped of their honorary titles and patronages.
This included all of Harry’s beloved military appointments, a blow for a prince who is so passionate about the armed forces.
The move came after the couple’s dramatic announcement that they wished to “step back” as senior royals last year.
