As Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, debuts the second episode of her podcast with her guest pop star Mariah Carey, an interview published on Monday pushes forward the idea that the Duchess may be open to "forgiving" the Royal Family.

In the interview published on Monday, Meghan spoke candidly about how hard it has been to "forgive" the Royal Family or her own family for the events that happened before and after she and her husband Prince Harry left their royal duties in 2020. Despite that, she has said that she is open to bridging the gap between herself and the Royal Family, according to NBC News.

“I think forgiveness is really important. It takes a lot more energy to not forgive,” she said. “But it takes a lot of effort to forgive. I’ve really made an active effort, especially knowing that I can say anything.”

She also spoke about the fallout after the controversy regarding their Royal exit and how it had affected Prince Harry’s relationship with his father Prince Charles, who has reportedly stopped taking his calls since leaving his Royal duties behind.

“Harry said to me, ‘I lost my dad in this process.’ It doesn’t have to be the same for them as it was for me, but that’s his decision,” she said.

During this week, Meghan also released the second episode of her Spotify podcast “Archetypes,” where she spoke with her guest speaker Mariah Carey about the connotations of being called a diva by the public, Vanity Fair reported.

“I’ve been stuck on this one for a while, because somewhere along the way—and I can’t quite place where—this word ‘diva,’ that actually means ‘goddess’ in Latin, the word just warped,” Meghan said. “It went from high class to high maintenance. From fun, like ‘yes diva’ to ‘ugh, she’s such a diva.’ Today it is so often used to tear a woman down, and it bothers me.”

They also spoke about growing up as a mixed-race individual, with Meghan opening up about how she didn’t experience discrimination for her color until she started dating Prince Harry.

“I think for us, it's very different because we're light-skinned. You're not treated as a Black woman. You're not treated as a white woman. You sort of fit in between,” Meghan said.

“[If] there's any time in my life that it's been more focused on my race, it's only once I started dating my husband. Then I started to understand what it was like to be treated like a Black woman because up until then, I had been treated like a mixed woman.”

“As [a] mixed woman, because I always thought it should be okay to say I'm mixed. Like it should be okay to say that. But people want you to choose,” Mariah Carey said, agreeing with the sentiment.

Meghan’s “Archetypes” podcast has been a success thus far, with her first episode with Serena Williams debuting at the top of Spotify’s charts, according to the Daily Beast.
