Duchess Meghan's gestures of thanks come days after she advocated for nationally mandated paid leave for American parents in an open letter to Congress, which was published on Paid Leave for All.
In the letter, the mother of two reflected on welcoming her second child with Prince Harry, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, and acknowledged that her financial circumstances provided a level of ease and resources that many American families cannot access.
"In June, my husband and I welcomed our second child. Like any parents, we were overjoyed. Like many parents, we were overwhelmed. Like fewer parents, we weren’t confronted with the harsh reality of either spending those first few critical months with our baby or going back to work," Meghan wrote. "We knew we could take her home, and in that vital (and sacred) stage, devote any and everything to our kids and to our family. We knew that by doing so we wouldn’t have to make impossible choices about childcare, work, and medical care that so many have to make every single day.
"No family should be faced with these decisions," the duchess added. "No family should have to choose between earning a living and having the freedom to take care of their child (or a loved one, or themselves, as we would see with a comprehensive paid leave plan)."
Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex believes it’s time for #PaidLeaveforAll. In a powerful letter to Congress, she’s standing up for millions of American families who need and deserve guaranteed paid leave. Read and share her letter: https://t.co/7m0GhdyhJz
