Meghan Markle Says Royal Handlers Sent Her Out to Work Right After Archie’s Room Caught Fire

Meghan Markle launched her new podcast with another scathing attack on the way she was treated while she was a working royal, 

saying that she was obliged to continue with official engagements after her son, Archie,

narrowly avoided being hurt after his nursery caught fire during a 2019 tour of South Africa, and was not allowed to say what happened.

Meghan was speaking on the first episode of her Archetypes podcast, which went live Tuesday morning and featured her interview with Serena Williams about the criticism often dished out to ambitious women.

As the tennis ace was talking about how her daughter, Olympia, once suffered a fractured wrist the evening before she had to play a major tournament, Meghan had a horrifying story of her own.

Speaking about a trip to South Africa with Prince Harry and their infant son in September 2019, Meghan said, 

 “The moment we landed, we had to drop [Archie] off at this housing unit they had us staying in.

He was going to get ready to go down for his nap and we immediately went to an official engagement.”
