Meghan Markle recently teamed up with Gloria Steinem and Makers Women (a media company dedicated to promoting gender equality) for a Q&A about voting and women’s rights. During the conversation, which was released on Aug. 26, the Duchess of Sussex and political activist chatted outside of what appeared to be Meghan and Prince Harry’s new home in Santa Barbara, and this might just be one of my most favorite Meghan interviews to date. Aside from her postengagement one with Harry, of course, that one is still No. 1 on my list.
While Meghan and Gloria’s discussion is definitely a must watch, I couldn’t help but obsess over how genuinely happy she looks. I mean, she’s radiating! From the way she kicked off her shoes and put her bare foot on the chair to how she’s just chilling in her backyard with Gloria with not a care in the world, California Meg is a whole vibe! Not to mention, her entire summer outfit is *chef’s kiss*! And yes, I’ve already added it to my virtual cart, where it’ll probably stay. Her dogs, Guy and Pula, also seem to be settling into their new home just fine, basking in the warmth of the glowing sun and taking in the beautiful hillside views. I love this for them. Ahead, check out all the unfiltered thoughts I had when I watched Meghan’s Q&A with Gloria.
