Meghan Markle to pursue ‘political career’ in US to open social discourse, expert claims

0

MEGHAN MARKLE could soon turn the international influence she has mastered as Duchess of Sussex to pursue a “political career” in the US to raise awareness of causes close to her heart, it has been claimed.

Meghan Markle emerged as one of the most outspoken members of the Royal Family as she took hold of her new Royal role to speak out about causes she cares about. In spite of public backlash she has faced, the Duchess of Sussex appears to have taken a more hands-on approach to promote the work of charities she supports. Meghan’s new take on being a royal has now sparked speculation about the Duchess planning to dive into active US politics to raise more awareness of causes such as “gender and racial equality.”

Speaking to Today, commentator Sam Rubin said: “A purported royal expert, someone who has worked with Prince Charles for eight years, is making a documentary.

“The documentary is called ‘Meghan for President?’ and in it, he suggests that Meghan Markle is sincere about her social activism and she could pursue a career in American politics.

“This documentary is about her speaking out on gender and racial equality issues. She does seem to be the most politically-oriented modern royal.”

Express.co.uk contacted Buckingham Palace for a comment. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex came under fire over the Summer as they candidly discussed their concerns about the risks of climate change – an issue royal commentators warned could cause controversy as members of the Royal Family are expected to remain neutral on political matters.

But filmmaker Nick Bullen, the man behind the ‘Meghan for President?’ documentary, claimed he “could see her going down her route” to maximise her influence to promote debate on causes she holds dear.

Mr Bullen told True Royalty TV: “There’s much more to Meghan and I think we’re only just beginning to see the early days of what Meghan Markle will really do now that she has this global platform.

“The most surprising thing in the documentary was how early in her life Meghan started to make a difference and how important change was to her.”

Mr Bullen continued: “One of the things we found was back at the age of about 10 when she was in her school in Hollywood, she organized a protest against the Gulf War because a little boy in her class, his older brother, was going to fight.

“And this little boy was really upset and worried. Meghan wanted to make him feel better. So she organized this campaign against the war. We found this footage that hasn’t been seen for years.”

In the documentary, Meghan’s former teacher Ilise Faye claimed the Duchess of Sussex sought to “bring about change” for herself and her classmates from a very young age.

Mrs Faye said: “She was one of those children that would stand up for the underdog.

“She would stand up for what she believed in, and she was a leader among her friends, her peer group.”

The California teacher continued: “School was important to her, learning was important and she had a voice.

“She’s an incredibly clever, driven focused lady who throughout her life has wanted to bring about change.”

However, the Duchess of Sussex last month admitted to struggling to cope with the increasing attention she has been facing since her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018.

In a raw interview with ITV, Meghan said she had found settling into her new position “hard” as she also adapted to being a new wife and later mother to her child, Archie Harrison.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have long been known to value their privacy and have faced criticism from the public for wanting to keep details of their son’s birth private before they welcomed him in May 2019 and again later in the run-up to his Christening in July.
