Us Weekly reports that Duchess Meghan is really serious about this whole “normal mom” thing she’s got planned. It’s been reported for a while that the Duchess of Sussex and Price Harry are going to raise their new son Archie as a commoner. They want to raise their son away from the drama and conflama of being a royal and instead have him live the extremely regular life of your average extremely wealthy person who doesn’t deal with media scrutiny. Well now we’re getting more factoids being spread in the media coming from some people close to the Duchess all about how she’s going to be a normal, strict mom.
Some of Meghan’s closest friends spoke to CBS for their special: Meghan And Harry Plus One. The show aired on Friday and it gave all us regular folk a look at the “other” side of Meghan. The side of her that isn’t a Duchess of Sussex, the side that’s the actress on a hit television series. Relatable.
Janina Gavankar of True Blood, is a close friend of Meghan having known her for many, many years, and she said she’s always known that Meghan will be a great mom who’s very “hand-on”:
“Meghan and I have talked about her being a mother for over a decade. She’s always wanted to be a mom. She’s going to be such a good mother… I think she’ll be very low-maintenance. I think she will be very hands-on. The way she would have been if she hadn’t married into the royal family.”
But don’t think “low-maintenance” means she’s gonna waltz around the house in a pink track suit offering booze to drink in the house; she’s gonna have rules!
“I think Meghan’s gonna be strict. Not in some sort of, you know, intense way. But I think she’s gonna — she’s an incredibly practical person. She’s gonna run a tight ship.”
Meghan’s longtime makeup artist Daniel Martin got emotional talking about how good a person Meghan is. And he also told CBS that Harry is going to be an amazing father:
“He’s so good with kids. Even when they were doing the family portrait after the wedding with everybody, he was on the floor, just playing with the kids. And that’s when I knew, like, he’s gonna be the coolest dad.”
Well at least if Meghan is a huge helicopter mom, Harry will be the cool dad you ask for permission when you know mom will say “no”. And of course Archie will always have cool-aunt Samantha Markle who he can runaway to whenever he gets mad at his mom. Every child needs an adult in their life who will undermine the parenting practices of one of their guardians. Samantha Markle will definitely fill that role.
Meanwhile the official Instagram account for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex put up a commemorative video to honor the one-year anniversary of their wedding. So feel free to check out the picture compilation of this totally normal couple who’s wedding one year ago had a $1 billion economic impact. You know, like regular folk!
