SHE may have been at the centre of rift rumours with her sister-in-law Kate Middleton but Meghan Markle says she’s “endlessly happier” when she “stays out of drama”.
The Duchess of Sussex – who is expecting her first baby in spring – said in a 2015 interview with InStyle that she has always tried to stay out of “office politics”.
Giving viewers insight into her work-life balance, the Suits star said: “In life, in the office, in any of that, 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.”
However, there was one thing the Duchess absolutely insisted on: “Don’t get involved in the inner-office politics.”
Before she married into the Royal Family last year, the Duchess also told the American magazine that she likes to “find balance” in her professional and personal life by “making time to throw in a yoga class or walk my dogs or literally just turn it all off and meditate for a minute.”

She added: “I think you have to make time for yourself so that work doesn’t become the end-all be-all.”
However, earlier this week a source close to the Suits star claimed that Meghan is “miserable” and “stressed” in her new Royal role while Prince Harry feels increasingly “guilty” that he can’t protect his wife from public scrutiny.

Last year, The Sun exclusively revealed that Meghan Markle had “left Kate Middleton in tears” over her strict demands for Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid’s dress.
Meanwhile, Meghan Markle was branded “Duchess Difficult” by Palace insiders who had grown tired of the former Suits actress’ 5am emails.
