Mariah Carey and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex bonded over being biracial and the many “misconceptions” about them.
The ‘We Belong Together’ hitmaker, 53, was the latest guest on the 41-year-old royal’s ‘Archetypes’ podcast – which aired days before the passing on Queen Elizabeth on September 8 – and she has shared how she and the former ‘Suits’ actress had a lot in common and she “enjoyed” getting Meghan’s “take on things”.
She told Variety: “I don’t know that I should be an authority on anybody but myself, but to preface my answer — I did not meet the Queen.
“I am, however, obsessed with the show ‘The Crown.’ And the podcast with Meghan, I felt, was an important moment and one that I truly enjoyed — getting her take on things, she’s had her journey and I’ve had mine. There are some similarities, like being biracial. I tend to dwell on that topic because I just can’t get over it. It’s always a thing, whether I bring it up or someone else does. I assume that’s why it was interesting for she and I to talk for her podcast. There are so many misconceptions about her and about me — you can’t even realise how many misconceptions.”
