LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Meghan Markle has hit out at those who called on her for stirring royal drama, whenever she can to her advantage. In a recent interview with Variety, the 'Suits' actress defended herself in the controversial interview with The Cut in August, where she talked about her husband’s family and how they have disturbed the royal hierarchy back there in London. “The [New York] story was intended to support 'Archetypes' and focus on our projects,” she said. “I’ve had some time to reflect on it. Part of me is just really trusting, really open — that’s how I move in the world.”

Markle stressed that she wants to keep that "trusting" part of herself alive, and can "survive" the controversy. “I have to remember that I don’t ever want to become so jaded that that piece of me goes away. So despite any of those things? Onward. I can survive it," she said.

The Duchess of Sussex had revealed back in August with The Cut magazine that the couple was "happy" to leave Britain and claimed they were "upsetting the dynamic of the hierarchy… just by existing." The royal couple soon officially disbanded their allegiance to the crown and moved to California.

The 'Deal or No Deal' star cleared that the interview with The Cut was purely meant to discuss her ongoing projects and those that were in the pipeline and to promote her Spotify podcast ‘Archetypes’. However, the interview took a different direction when the interviewer started questioning the royal connection.

In her latest interview with Variety, she was asked on her chat in August "was called snarky by many," to which The Duchess said that particular interview "didn’t go the way she wanted." Meghan was attacked by many who referred to her as a "shameless vanity project." She also shared that she had a hard time after her interview with Ophrah Winfrey, where the couple talked in detail about the royal family. Some of the comments they made irked the people back in London and further stained their relationship back home. Among many controversial statements, one that really stood out was when Prince Harry alleged that one of the royal members made a racist remark about their son Archie’s skin tone.

Markle talked about the time when she attended Gloria Steinem's birthday party and admitted it "felt a bit uncomfortable" attending the event, reports Daily Mail. “I hadn’t really seen people in a long time, and the interview had come out maybe a week before. Walking into a room alone is never easy for me, and I remember feeling a bit uncomfortable,” she remembered. “But before I could let my uncertainty linger, Pamela Adlon came up to me and greeted me with such warmth and kindness. She toured me around the room, and at every turn, more generosity and love was felt.”
