Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have the desire to change the world, their former chief of staff, Catherine St-Laurent, believes.
"It was an incredible experience. They are incredibly talented and creative leaders," St-Laurent — who quit her role after less than a year — said of working with the duo. "I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to do that, to be able to be with them on their journey. The time that I spent with them was incredibly fulfilling. I think they have the potential to be very influential leaders in the social-impact space. I look forward to continuing to be a part of that."
“Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope,” the couple said in a statement. “As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, adding that Netflix’s “unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action.”
The two have always been focused on helping others since they moved to California.
So much so, after Meghan's children's book, The Bench, was released in June, she gave back in a big way.
"After more than a year of unprecedented challenges for schoolkids and families everywhere, The Duchess believes the path ahead must include a focus on well-being — and nourishing our communities through food, education, and emotional and mental health support," the note, which was posted on Meghan and Harry's Archewell website, began.
The message continued, "At Archewell, that is often centered on food and essential needs (as evidenced by our partnership with organizations like World Central Kitchen) but also nourishment through learning and connection (as seen in The Duchess’s support of last year’s Save With Stories initiative to raise funds for educational resources like books, toys, and worksheets). As an example of this belief system, The Duchess and Archewell have received the support of the publisher of The Bench to distribute 2,000 copies at no cost to libraries, community centers, schools, and nonprofit programs across the country."
