No comments

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are truly a powerful couple, and a global force. Not only did they create history when they got married in May of 2018, as the first biracial couple in royal family, but they continue to advocate for racial and gender equality. They also elected to not have their son Archie become a prince. Unlike brother, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton.

Since their marriage however, they have demonstrated their commitment to addressing diversity and gender equality.

Let’s start with their baby, Master Archie’s nanny. They have made the historic move to hire a black nanny for their son. We have no evidence that this has happened before in the British royal family. Even his brother, Prince William and his wife Duchess Kate, have only hired white nannies for their children.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have also shaken things up when it comes to their advising staff, which compromises mostly of women. They have an all women team of advisors, for their various needs, from nanny duties to communication. It has become the custom in the British monarchy for top ranking positions to be assigned to men. Not to mention a significant pay gap between both genders, with the men out earning the women.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are changing these unequal practices among their team members. From appointing a black nanny for Master Archie, to appointing an all female team of advisors and focusing on female charities,they are making sure that they make their mark by paying attention to diversity and gender equality.

Together they are making history, as gender and diversity issues have never been addressed in the royal family.
