Meghan Markle has revealed a special milestone her daughter Lilibet has achieved during the latest episode of her podcast Archetypes.

The Duchess of Sussex shared an adorable update to listeners regarding a big step for her one-year-old – pun intended.

“Lili has just started walking,” she said.

She was speaking with Pamela Adlon and Sophie Trudeau – who is married to the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau – to discuss the ideologies associated with the good wife/bad wife and good mum/bad mum dichotomy.

“She’s a year and a couple of months old and Archie is just over three years old,” Meghan said. “Oh, I’m in the thick of it, toddling.”

“I’m sure it’ll only get more chaotic as they get older,” she said.

Meghan admitted her life feels like a “whirlwind” as she takes care of her two children and feeding their three dogs – Guy, Pula and Mia.

“For me, it’s, you know, both monitors on for the kids to hear them. Always up with Lili, get her downstairs, then a half hour later, Archie’s up,” Meghan said.

“I start doing his lunchbox right before he’s up while I have her, getting her a little nibble. My husband’s helping me get him downstairs.

“I make breakfast for all three of them. It’s very important to me. I love doing it – to me, it just feels like the greatest way to start the morning.”

Sophie confessed she understood the duchess’ struggles with parenting “in the public eye.”

“I think we’ve learned to self-impose,” Meghan said. “A little girl is not born feeling guilty for being a girl; we learn it, and that’s completely unacceptable.

“So, I think that when I started becoming an older girl and at an early adult stage, I realised that we often define freedom as a way to be free from the world, but it’s really a way to be free in the world.”

Despite giving birth to her son Archie nearly two years before Lilibet, Meghan confessed having a daughter completely changed her view on the world.

“I see the world differently through how she is going to see the world and how she is going to look at certain women as role models,” she said.

“And when I look at a lot of the women that I’m speaking to on this show, you included, I want her to understand that it is not just a box you have to fit into, but you get to be a full-fledged, interesting, curious, kind, strong, all the things, human being. But you also get to be a woman with a voice.”
