Meghan Markle discusses ‘toxic Asian stereotypes’ in delayed new podcast episode

Meghan Markle has resumed her podcast on Spotify after a four-week break following the Queen’s death.

After Her Majesty’s passing on September 8, the Duchess of Sussex delayed the upcoming episodes during the official ‘mourning period’.

The fourth episode of Archetypes was released this morning to the delight of fans curious to hear if she mentions her stay in London with King Charles and other members of the Royal Family.

But the 41-year-old seems to have avoided discussing the monarchy altogether.

Instead, she explores the ‘Dragon Lady’ stereotype with journalist Lisa Ling and comedian Margaret Cho.

The duchess talks about her experience of growing up in Los Angeles which was ‘full of culture that you could see, feel, hear and taste on a daily basis’ and said she had a ‘real love’ of getting to know other cultures.

She spoke of going to a Korean spa with her mother as a teenager, adding: ‘It’s a very humbling experience for a girl going through puberty because you enter a room with women from ages nine to maybe 90, all walking around naked and waiting to get a body scrub on one of these tables that are all lined up in a row.

‘All I wanted was a bathing suit.’
