Meghan slams ‘toxicity’ she has faced in media and says it’s ‘good to be home’

Meghan Markle has said she is looking forward to speaking out against racism and said "it's good to be home" in a video interview today.

Prince Harry and Meghan have moved to California with their son Archie after sensationally announcing they would quit as senior members of the Royal Family in January this year.

The couple have now bought their own home, allegedly for around £11 million, and look to be settling in Montecito, Santa Barbara.

Meghan, who was born in LA, said she was happy to be back and engaged in activism during an interview for The 19th Represents Summit.

In the video, Meghan discusses the impact of George Floyd's death and says: "From my standpoint, it’s not new to see this undercurrent of racism and certainly unconscious bias, but I think to see the changes that are being made right now is really — it’s something I look forward to being a part of.

"And being part of using my voice in a way that I haven’t been able to of late.

"So, yeah, it’s good to be home."

In the video, Meghan wears a simple orange top and her dark hair is worn long and wavy with a centre parting.

The 19th Represents describes itself as "a week of virtual events to raise the voices of women — past and present — who are reshaping the American story".

Meghan is the reason Harry is now a "woke" man after he saw her struggles as a black woman, according to the new unofficial biography Finding Freedom.

Omid Scobie, one of the authors, told National Public Radio in the US: "Harry's journey to wokeness has been very public.

"We've seen him learning and educating himself along the way, but this experience of witnessing Meghan face racist remarks and commentary would have been the first time he'd seen someone in his life or someone he was particularly close to affected by it in a certain way."
