MEGHAN SAYS HER TEENS AND 20S WERE ‘BRUTAL’
Meghan Markle has revealed how her teens and 20s were a “brutal” experience where she struggled to be “happy” and “fit in”.
The Duchess of Sussex, 39, admitted that as a young woman she was in a “constant battle”, which saw her “judge” herself on her weight, didn’t have anyone to eat lunch with at school, and aged 24 was told by a casting director to wear less make-up.
On her 33rd birthday back in August 2014, on her now-defunct lifestyle blog The Tig, the former actress – wrote that she had finally found happiness, but that it had taken a while to get there.
She revealed: “My 20s were brutal – a constant battle with myself, judging my weight, my style, my desire to be as cool/as hip/as smart/as “whatever” as everyone else.
“My teens were even worse – grappling with how to fit in, and what that even meant. My high school had cliques: the black girls and white girls, the Filipino and the Latina girls.”
