Meghan replied, “All things considered everyone is grappling with a different version of the same thing and, for us, we are just trying to embrace all of the quality time we get with our son right now, and to not miss a single moment of his growth and development which has been really special.”

Harry added, “I think when people ask 'how are you?' it’s a case of, really, how are you? Before this year I think everyone throws that term around...in answer to that, we’re good. There’s a lot of stuff to be focused on, a lot of work. But, as Meghan quite rightly said, this is an opportunity to spend more time as a family that we probably would otherwise.”

The couple were then asked how they prioritise what they work on, to which Meghan replied, pointing out their “unwavering” commitment to causes they care about.

She explained, “Both of us realised...we can continue to champion these things that we are passionate about, continue to do this work to try to affect change and help people that need it most or the communities or environments that need it most.

"But it’s almost like you’re taking two steps forward and five steps backwards if you can’t get to the root cause of the problem, which at this point right now we see in a large way as a lot of what’s happening in the tech space.

"So we’ve been on a journey to learn as much as we can, since really January this year.”
