Before becoming the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan was a successful actress and a busy entrepreneur with a lifestyle business. Her profile in real life and her persona of a blooming paralegal onscreen as Rachel Zane in the TV show Suits made her the perfect role model for InStyle magazine who interviewed her back in 2015 and asked for her words of wisdom as a girl boss.
“I think the biggest part of being a girl boss in the office, at home, or anywhere you go is just knowing your value,” said Meghan.
Before giving many fashion tips, Archie’s mom underlined how important it is to not prioritise work above everything else.
“You don’t need to make your life your job.
“I have to find that balance for myself, as well.
“Between The Tig [her lifestyle brand] and my time on set or at home, I have to make the time to throw in a yoga class or walk my dogs or literally just turn it all off and meditate for a minute.
“I think you have to make time for yourself so that work doesn’t become the end-all-be-all.”
She also added: “I think in life and in the office, it’s best to stay out of the drama.
“You’ll be endlessly happier for it. If you want to do that, save that for drinks after work with your girlfriends.”

“Whatever it is so that when you wake up on those days where you’re not really feeling going into work, you put that piece on and it’s almost like your own anthem.
“It can really shift the energy of your whole day.
“People often say dress for the part that you want, not the part that you have, and I can’t think of any paralegal that was dressing like Rachel did.
“She was dressing for the role and the seriousness that she wanted people to treat her with.
”Rachel’s quintessential power look is a crisp, white button-down with the collar a little popped, sleeves rolled up and a high-waisted pencil skirt.
“It’s a look that makes her feel confident and come across like she really means business.”
