Meghan Markle fears women will be ‘vilified’ and shamed for exploring their sexuality.

The royal mother-of-two also revealed in the latest episode of her Archetypes podcast, posted on Spotify on Tuesday, that she believes men are often praised for the same and can be “heralded” for being a “player”.

“I don’t understand what it is about the stigma around women and their sexuality and the exploration of their sexuality that is so much more reviled than for a man,” she said.

“As you age, you explore and begin to understand your sensuality, your feminine divinity. Your sexuality, often, can be very used against you.

“A man, if he is a player, having fun or whatever he is doing, it is often celebrated. Even announced.

“But for a woman, I don’t care if she’s possibly the most successful woman in finance in her 50s, I promise you, someone will always say, ‘But she was such a bitch in college. .'”

The 41-year-old, who shares son Archie, three, and daughter Lilibet, 17 months, with husband Prince Harry, 38, added that the idea that a woman’s sexual journey “will stick with it” like glue.

She previously used her podcast to talk about how she felt reduced to a “bimbo” during her time as the “briefcase girl” on game show Deal or No Deal.

The Duchess added in the episode that aired in October: “I ended up leaving the show. I was so much more than what was objectified on stage.

“I didn’t like feeling pressured to be all in appearance and little in substance, and that’s what I felt at the time being reduced to this specific archetype: the word ‘bimbo’.

“I was grateful for the work, but not for how it made me feel, which wasn’t smart. By the way, I was surrounded by smart women…but that wasn’t the goal.
