Meghan studied for British Citizenship test and Harry struggled to help

Meghan Markle has revealed she spent some time preparing for the British Citizenship test while in the UK – and admitted even Prince Harry struggled with some of the answers.

The Duchess of Sussex moved to the UK from her life in California to live with Harry after they started dating in 2016.

However, the couple’s time in England was short lived and they decided to settle their family in LA following the announcement they would be stepping down as royals in early 2020.

Shortly after leaving the Royal Family, Meghan spoke out about feeling uncomfortable during her time living in the UK and admitted her time as a royal had a negative impact on her mental health.

But, speaking on the latest episode of her Archetypes podcast, the ex-royal revealed she had taken some steps to becoming a permanent resident of the UK, when she revealed she had prepared for the British Citizenship exam.

“That citizenship exam is so hard. I was so studying for it going, ‘oh my goodness’," she said.

“I would ask my husband, ‘did you know this? Did you know this? And he would say, ‘no, I had no idea’.”

TV star Pamela Adlon joked to Meghan the exam organisers must have made the test harder for the Duchess, laughing: “They were like we’re gonna really throw up walls on this one.”

Meghan did not reveal whether she had actually sat the exam, or why she had decided to prepare for the test.

During the same podcast episode, Meghan spoke to her friend Sophie Trudeau, the wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Tredeau, who she revealed she had recently holidayed with over the summer.

Titled Good Wife/Bad Wife, Good Mom/Bad Mom, Meghan also used the Spotify release to share an update about her children Archie and Lilibet who she has spoken relatively little about.

In one section, Meghan admitted she was currently “in the thick of it” but stressed she was working hard to maintain one morning ritual she described as “very important”.
