"The moment that you're able to be liberated from all these other opinions of what you know to be true, then I think it's very easy to live with truth and live with authenticity," Markle said Tuesday in a recorded interview for Fortune magazine's "Most Powerful Women" virtual conference. "That's how I choose to move through the world," she added, responding to Fortune's Ellen McGirt asking how a powerful woman who's "had a sitting president take a shot" at her weighs in on important issues of the day.

"I'm not a fan of hers, and I would say this, and she probably has heard that. I wish a lot of luck to Harry because he's going to need it," Trump said.

In a video last week, Markle and the 36-year-old royal family member had said Americans must "reject hate speech" and "misinformation" ahead of the election.

In her Fortune interview on Tuesday, she said that across the country "we're all going through a reckoning and probably a reevaluation of what really matters."

Markle, 39, said she and her husband — who left their full-time work at the House of Windsor earlier this year and moved from Britain to California — are now focusing on their family and young son, their charitable foundation, and "how we can be a part of the change of energy that so many people are craving right now."

"It's about being authentic," Markle said. "If you look back at anything that I've said, it's really interesting because what ends up being inflammatory it seems is people's interpretation of it. But if you listen to what I actually say, it's not controversial."
