Royal biographer Angela Levin has mocked Meghan Markle for “jumping on theYY bandwagon” after the Duchess lobbied the Democrat speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and the Majority Leader in the US Senate Chuck Schumer to push through a policy on parental leave. Ms Levin claimed the measures, which have been backed by President Joe Biden, to introduce mandatory parental pay and sick leave had “already gone through” the US Congress.

Speaking to TalkRADIO, Ms Levin said: “She’s also trying to get a policy put through of parental leave, for the Government to pay parental leave, when it’s already gone through actually.

“The thing they haven’t decided is how long each family can use it for.

“She sort of jumped on the bandwagon as she often does so she can claim it was her letter ‘that done it’.

“Also the signature at the end. This is a professional letter to senior politicians and the signature is then by her and also by Archie, Lili and Harry.
“But surely Archie and Lili aren’t yet involved in having parental leave.”

Ms Levin added: “I think it’s yet another shock for Megan which has got loads of publicity, which is obviously one aim of it.

“She has abused the royal thing of being a British royal or, you know, working as a British royal because she’s actually trying to tell another government what to do.

“The heading on the paper is the office of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex Yeah, which is definitely an abuse.

“The other thing is she takes on different types, you know, she becomes a sort of young sort of guru, saying that she understands how these families feel she’s representing the families, how does she know that I mean this is Megan taking the global view again.”

Meghan wrote: “I grew up on the 4.99-dollar salad bar at Sizzler – it may have cost less back then (to be honest, I can’t remember) – but what I do remember was the feeling: I knew how hard my parents worked to afford this because even at five bucks, eating out was something special, and I felt lucky.

“And as a Girl Scout, when my troop would go to dinner for a big celebration, it was back to that same salad bar or The Old Spaghetti Factory because that’s what those families could afford to do too.

“I started working (at the local frozen yogurt shop) at the age of 13.

“I waited tables, babysat, and piece-mealed jobs together to cover odds and ends.
