Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may have stepped down as royal family members and relocated to California, but that certainly doesn’t stop them from making headlines.
This past few months were no exception as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the news that they had welcomed a baby daughter, naming their second child ‘Lilibet’ after the Queen.
This week has especially been all about Meghan Markle, from her calling senators to talk paid leave to the unearthing of her relatable shopping habits.
The Duchess made a surprising financial confession as she revealed that she is a promo code shopper.
During a conference hosted by the New York Times about financial literacy among the young, Meghan Markle opened up about her own approach to money, something that she says was instilled in her from a young age.
‘Even though I clipped coupons growing up, and now that is ingrained in me as well, my values have not changed,’ Meghan explained. ‘I will never buy anything online without finding a promo code first’.
She continued: ‘That is still in there, it is a modern version of the same thing. That was ingrained in me when I was young. Imagine what the world would be like if you ingrained other elements of financial understanding, especially to a young woman.’
Royals – they’re just like us!
