Meghan Markle marries her prince this Saturday. At Julia & Company, we wish her much happiness.
We didn’t work with Ms. Markle, but it sure looks like we did – she’s a shining example of what’s required to transition successfully:
Meghan understands her value.
As an actor, she’s comfortable in the spotlight and knows how to deliver lines and hit her mark. More than a pretty face – she studied international relations along with theatre arts at college – Meghan conducts herself with dignity and discretion.
She understands herself.
Meghan’s values – such as compassion for others – have been in evidence for years. She is serious and grounded, and relies on a strong support network of family and friends. Plus the future royal has a strong sense of style that is aligned with her values.
Meghan understands her world.
A long-time advocate for human rights – including as a UN women’s advocate – Meghan has used her celebrity to create awareness and drive change. The New York Times says she repositioned her “Suits” character from “mere eye candy” to “the show’s moral conscience.” And last month, she and her fiancé attended a memorial for the victim of a racially-motivated crime to draw attention to the issue.
And she understands her next moves.
All of Meghan’s skills and qualities prepare her to step into a royal role with confidence. The Queen gave her blessing to a love match but it’s much more than that: the family firm gets someone who will excel at her new job. And I predict she will lead the House of Windsor in a progressive new direction.
We can’t all marry a prince, but we can learn from Meghan’s example.
At Julia & Company, we help people learn the steps, skills, and mindset required to transition into the role we’re meant to play.
