"I first just had Archie. Now I'm a mom of a daughter and whether I thought it was going to happen or not, it did, I see the world differently through how she's going to see the world and how she's going to look at certain women as role models," she revealed.

"And when I look at a lot of women, I'm speaking to on this show, you included, I want her to understand that," Meghan continued.

During the frank conversation, Meghan later divulged her morning routine at home in California with husband Prince Harry and their two children, Archie, three, and baby Lilibet, one.

Sharing a fresh insight into their weekday schedule, Meghan said: "With the morning rush, I'm sure it will only get more chaotic as they get older. But for me, it's you know, both monitors on, for the kids to hear them, always up with Lili, get her downstairs, then half an hour later, Archie gets up.

"I start doing his lunch box right before he's up. While I have [Lili] I give her a little nibble… And I make breakfast for all three of them. It's very important to me. I love doing it and it feels like the greatest way to start the morning."

Meghan and Harry relocated to Montecito after the duo stepped down as senior members of the royal family in 2020. While the Prince and Princess of Wales' children have a nanny at home, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, it's thought Harry and Meghan care for their children themselves with help from Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland.
