Meghan, who shares Archie, 5, and Lilibet, 4, with husband Prince Harry, recounted a conversation she had with her mentor Bonnie Hammer, vice chairman of NBCUniversal, while she was still starring on the resurgent USA drama Suits.

“She invited me to have breakfast, and I thought this was just the biggest deal in the world,” Meghan said. “And I asked her that exact question. I said, ‘How do you find the balance?’ And she said, ‘You don’t, you’ll never find the balance.’”
