She offered a possible preview of what her speech would have been in the final episode, telling actress Mindy Kaling that she was frustrated that she had been told “a million times” that she was lucky that Prince Harry chose her when they were engaged. .

“But luckily I have a partner who refuted that story for me and said, ‘They’re all wrong. I’m the lucky one because you chose me,” Markle said.

“But it’s gendered and it’s archetype and stereotype that you’re so lucky, and it just feeds the idea of ​​waiting for someone to tell you you’re good enough, as opposed to knowing you’re good enough on your own.”
