The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle shared her hopes for daughter Lilibet on an episode of her Spotify podcast Archetypes on Tuesday 18 October with guest Paris Hilton.


On the latest episode of Archetypes, Meghan Markle broke down “bimbo” and “dumb blonde” with Paris Hilton and Iliza Shlesinger.

While speaking to Iliza, Meghan shared that she hopes her daughter Lilibet– who she shares with Prince Harry – will one day strive for intelligence and authenticity, defying stereotypes to not connect her self-worth with solely beauty.

“Curious to hear your thoughts on this idea of, when I hear the word ‘bimbo,’ I have a very negative connotation to it. I don’t see that as an aspirational thing for women, want our daughters to aspire to be,” said Meghan.

“Slightly higher,” replied Iliza.

“Yeah. I want my Lili to want to be educated, and want to be smart, and to pride herself on those things,” added Meghan.

Meghan also opened up about how objectificed she felt while she was a briefcase girl on Deal or No Deal.

“I ended up quitting the show. I was so much more than what was being objectified on the stage,” she said.

She explained that she did not like being all looks and little substance. So, she felt like she was reduced to being a “bimbo”.

“I didn’t like feeling forced to be all looks and little substance, and that’s how it felt for me at the time being reduced to this specific archetype: the word ‘bimbo,” she continued.

“I was grateful for the job, but not about how it made me feel, which was not smart. By the way I was surrounded by smart women … but that wasn’t the focus,” she added.
