As part of Meghan Markle’s statement, she recalled a scary incident when Archie’s room caught on fire while he was supposed to be sleeping inside.
During her and Prince Harry’s tour to South Africa in 2019, the 41-year-old Duchess of Sussex revealed that she was informed about the fire right after she finished giving a speech by her security guards, which could indicate that it occurred during the tour.
Markle Spoke About The Frightening Fire That Broke Out In Archie’s Nursery In 2019
There is a possibility that a severe injury could have been caused to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son Archie during their 2019 tour of South Africa when his nursery caught fire.
On Serena Williams’ “Archetypes” podcast, the “Suits” actress, 41, confessed that she was finishing up a royal engagement when she and Harry, 37, were told that a fire had broken out in the baby’s room at the time.
A nanny for the couple had taken Archie, who was four months old at the time of the fire, downstairs to get a snack, so he was not in the room when the fire started, thanks to Lauren, the couple’s fantastic nanny. There was a fire in the nursery while Lauren and Archie were out of the room because the heater in the nursery had caught fire.
Considering the absence of a smoke detector, the fire was extinguished when someone noticed smoke coming from down the hallway and somehow, something dangerous didn’t happen. There was a lot of crying at the residence after they raced back, and Meghan described their “amazing nanny” Lauren as wailing with tears.
“She was supposed to put Archie down for his nap, and she just said, ‘You know what? Let me get a snack downstairs.’ And she was from Zimbabwe, and we loved that she would always tie him on her, her back with a mud cloth, and her instinct was like, ‘Let me just bring him with me before I put him down.’ In that amount of time that she went downstairs, the heater in the nursery caught on fire. There was no smoke detector. Someone happened to smell smoke down the hallway went in, fire extinguisher,” Meghan said.
There Was Another Scheduled Engagement For The Couple To Attend
The incident left everyone “in tears” and “shaken” by what had happened, but they had to go for another engagement before addressing it.
“I was like, Can you tell people what happened? And so much, I think, optically. The focus ends up being on how it looks instead of how it feels,” she said. “And part of the humanizing and the breaking through of these labels and these archetypes and these boxes that we’re put into is having some understanding on the human moments behind the scenes that people might not have any awareness of and to give each other a break. Because we did — we had to leave our baby.”
She continued, “And even though we were being moved to another place afterwards, we still had to leave him and go do another official engagement.”
