Royals – they're just like us! But only if you happen to be the kind of person who can reliably make breakfast for four humans every single morning while wrangling a roving toddler and running a media empire, since that's what this story is actually about.
On the latest episode of her Archetypes podcast, Meghan Markle talked motherhood and domestic life with her guest, actress Pamela Adlon, specifically delving into some details about the Sussex family's morning routine. And even though Meghan used words like "chaotic" and "whirlwind" in her description of said morning routine, it honestly sounds like the very well-intentioned ideal morning most of us dream about while hitting snooze for the fourth time and sleeping through.
"I'm sure it'll only get more chaotic as they get older," Meghan explained on the podcast (per Us Weekly). "But for me, it's, you know, both monitors on for the kids to hear them, always up with Lili, get her downstairs, then a half hour later, Archie's up. I start doing his lunchbox right before he's up while I have her, getting her a little nibble. My husband's helping me get him downstairs."
So up with Lili at least a half hour before Archie wakes up. Packing lunches, getting toddler "nibbles" prepared. If this is already more than you ever seem to accomplish before work, welcome to my support group, but also brace yourself, because *OBVIOUSLY* there's more.
Once Harry and Archie make it downstairs, they get to enjoy a homemade breakfast (which, based on Meghan's foodie status, probably consists of something nutritious)
"I make breakfast for all three of them," Meghan explained. "It's very important to me. I love doing it. To me, it just feels like the greatest way to start the morning."
Think that Meghan Markle Super Morning is over? Because it's obviously not. Next, Meghan feeds the Sussexes' three dogs and gets Archie ready for school, and when you add up ^^^ALL OF THAT^^^, she admitted, It does, it feels like a whirlwind. She also made it clear that Harry is a very hands-on dad and "great" when it comes to helping with the kids, which is a good thing since Lili recently starting walking and is "in the thick of it toddling," according to Meghan.
And now if you'll excuse me, I need a nap, since even thinking about everything Meghan accomplishes before 10 a.m. is actually exhausting.
