Meghan Markle’s interview with The Cut, “When your story is shaped by media, nonetheless they want, it’s beautiful to express it.”
It was September 2021, and they’d been living for two years.
Still, inside their home, the Duchess of Sussex presented her first solo interview to advertise the release of her podcast, Archetypes, available by the end of August on Spotify.
She picked The Cut, Harry and Meghan of Sussex, already distant from the royal glories and well anchored to new American life, as a couple, on one of the most coveted covers in the world, that of the New York Times.
Attacked for permitting their pictures to be retouched unnaturally, the Sussexes, on that event, had settled to niche, relishing the success within the walls of ‘huge Tuscan-style mansion immersed in the glamorous area of Montecito, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, where Meghan, her husband, and two children Archie and Lilibet, a creature of the New York Media Network also a famous New York Mag, and the hand of one of the most demanded fashion photographer of the moment, the British Campbell Addy, who reduced it in half between original and fashion photoshoot.
Meghan, the Duchess, is the tag of the conversation – suffering to say interview, it’s less radical chic – with the newsperson Allison P Davis.
The Carrie Bradshaw of the recent millennium (to deliver her a title under her most fortunate queries to theme sex and relationships, even if the writer is much more), who entered in her home to uncover out more about today’s Meghan Markle, the one with a voice that is finally free to be heard, to set it in her own words.
“When your story is shaped by media, nonetheless they want, it’s beautiful to express it.”
Meghan Markle’s interview with The Cut
Meghan Markle‘s interview with The Cut first foresees a return of the Duchess on Instagram, from which both she and her husband Harry are away from closing @SussexRoyal (blacked out because they can no longer utilize the royal label for legal reasons, ed); then, at a specific point in the interview, it is Meghan Markle herself who believes about it.
Ensuring that she is not prepared for retrieval to social media, not with the wind of hatred that she still enrages on her head.
But it’s not so much Meghan’s words to the reporter that briefs us on who the Duchess of Sussex is today, but the photographs she chose to have Campbell take.
They are images that percolate glamour, and that comprise some of the coolest fashion voices of the point: Tory Burch for the cover dress, an innovation in tulle in which emerald green button earrings by Lanvin stand out; a low-cut black dress by Bottega Veneta; a strapless tweed dress by Chanel.
Similarly, a white suit – classic Meghan Markle, who has already worn many oversized white blazers, all successfully – by Proenza Schouler.
Diva poses, conveying the red carpet Meghan Markle to the best of her.
What would she have been like if she could really have been herself during her tenure in the British royal family?
Here, so these pictures seem to convey.
In the interview with Davis, Meghan Markle will later say: “I’m not comfortable as a model; after all, I’m only a mother”; then she is retorted by Prince Harry, who has run to greet the journalist, who recommends that she “can be both.”
A lifetime back – it was 2017 – Meghan Markle, the girlfriend of the British prince, revealed to the media, had given an exclusive interview to Vanity Fair, concluding up for the first time on the cover specifically because of that budding relationship.
At that event, the photographs were less artificial, more spontaneous: loose hair, no-make-up, natural smiles.
On The Cut, she changes everything, from the hairstyle (abandoned the messy buns, Meghan Markle has given herself to the low and pulled chignon, very severe) to the style: the Duchess was determined to show herself like a diva.
But one of those with their feet firmly planted on the ground, and the journalist indulges her, not failing to note some of Meghan’s communication habits (such as when she covertly suggests what to pen, or compels to the end of the conversation without giving additional space for the author), recounting stolen moments with Archie, 3 and a half years old, the couple’s elder son and Meghan’s wish to be a “normal” mother, who picks up her children from school and accompanies to birthday parties.
“I could never have accomplished it in London, with a gathering of paparazzi prepared to film my every move,” adds the Duchess in the interview.
Her intellect automatically associates her words with the pictures seen and reviewed by the mother-in-law Lady Diana trying to escape the photographers as she comes out of the gym, another linguistic virtuosity of Meghan may not be exactly unplanned, in a time in which the figure of Lady Diana is celebrated because of the anniversary of her death.
Although the similarity does not exist because we are speaking about two women with very distinct personalities and roles, even Kate Middleton, years back, permitted herself to appear in a decidedly particular shooting (on Vogue ), in which it was not so much the dress – she wore none, to speak the truth, in favor of jeans, tweed shirts, and a wide-brimmed hat – as much as her being very genuine, spontaneous, even soap and water.
We comprehend that the Duchess of Cambridge is none of these three things but the shooting, in that case, accomplished the goal: it focused on what Kate was, not what she aspired to be.
Meghan, with the interview to The Cut, does the opposite, with the same objective: via visual experience and positively successful looks, it sets a new self-image, that of the female who has reached and fixed, of the mother, of the girl born and raised in Los Angeles that always chooses the best to improve itself from the closets of the fashion designers, of the dear and loving wife.
Regardless of what you think of Meghan Markle, the mission succeeded on a mere aesthetic and communicative level.
It remains to be seen whether beautiful dresses, suggestive shots and lucky marketing insights are enough to maintain the long wave of public appreciation: up to now, both critics and strongly devoted fans from them , they anticipate the best.
