The Duchess of Sussex revealed in her podcast that she struggled to take the British citizenship test. The latest episode of Archetypes saw Meghan meet with Pamela Adlon, Sam Jay, and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau as they discussed the terms Good Wife/Bad Wife, Good Mom/Bad Mom.
Director and actress Ms Adlon recently became a British citizen by passing her citizenship test.
Following her engagement to Prince Harry in November 2017, Meghan studied for the ‘Life in the UK’ test as she intended to become a British Citizen, Buckingham Palace said at the time.
Recalling the practice tests, Meghan said she found it “so hard” and some of the questions even stumped her husband.
The test is 45-minutes long and has 24 multiple-choice questions about British life.
Meghan needed help with some of the material which includes history, customs, people and political systems.
The Duchess said: “That citizenship exam is so hard. I was studying for it, and I remember going: ‘Oh my goodness’.
“I would ask my husband: ‘Did you know this? And people went: ‘Oh, I have no idea.’”
Ms Adlon joked with the podcast host saying: “I think they made it harder for you.
“They were like: ‘We’re gonna really throw up walls on this one.’”
Meghan laughed and replied: “You think?”

According to sources from The Telegraph, the plans for the royal to take the ‘Life in the UK’ exam were quietly dropped following the Sussexes’ decision to step back from the Royal Family in 2020.
In 2017, Palace aides said that the Duchess would not receive preferential treatment and would be made to complete the years-long process just like everyone else.
The sources told The Telegraph that though the Duchess started the British citizenship process, she found “no reason” to continue the application for dual citizenship after the couple moved to California.
In the podcast, Meghan described her experience of parenting as a “whirlwind” as she and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau said that domestic work is “the most thankless, unpaid labour there is”.

Speaking of herself and Harry getting the children ready in the morning, Ms Markle said: “I make breakfast for all three of them. It’s very important to me. I love doing it.
“To me, it feels like the greatest way to start the morning.
“And then it’s like, feed all three of the dogs because we just got another dog and then get Archie out of the door to school. It feels like a whirlwind.”
The Duchess praised her mother Doria Ragland for “how much she took care of me and the house and herself and how she just juggled so much”.
