“I just look at all of them and think, ‘You have the power within you to create a life greater than any fairy tale you’ve ever read’.”
She added: “I don’t mean that in terms of ‘You could marry a prince one day’. I mean you can find love. You can find happiness. You can be up against what could feel like the greatest obstacle and then you can find happiness again.”

Elsewhere in her interview with The Cut, Markle recalled an incident at the 2019 Lion King premiere, where she was ‘compared to Nelson Mandela’.
She claimed that a South African cast member approached her, explaining: “He looked at me, and he’s just like light. He said, ‘I just need you to know: When you married into this family, we rejoiced in the streets the same we did when Mandela was freed from prison’.”
