Meghan’s political ambitions threatened by Americans ‘picking apart’ Oprah ‘truths’

EXCLUSIVE: Meghan Markle has long been tipped for a future career in politics, with analysts pointing to her humanitarian work, campaigning and Democrat endorsements as evidence. But past high-profile interviews could come back to haunt her, a royal expert has told Express.co.uk.

Meghan was the top choice candidate, with 27 percent of votes in the poll of 1,500 likely Democratic voters. She outmuscled Vice President Kamala Harris, who received 25 percent.

High profile Democrat and Joe Biden’s sister, Valerie Biden Owens, even publicly endorsed the Duchess, saying she would “of course” be a strong presidential candidate.

But royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams believes that, if the Sussexes go into politics, “some people in America might pick the Oprah interview apart” in an ominous warning.

Meghan and Harry dubbed ‘elephant in the room’ ahead of Kate and William’s US visit

Just four days after Earthshot Prize Awards, which has been described as Prince William’s “SuperBowl moment”, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are due to be presented with an award for their “heroic” stance in standing up to “structural racism” within the Royal Family.

Speaking on GB News, Vanity Fair’s royal editor Katie Nicholl claimed that the Prince and Princess of Wales “don’t want any distractions”, although the Sussexes could be a “huge distraction”.

He told Express.co.uk: “If they go into politics, one day, some people in America might pick the Oprah interview apart, and frankly what you find is a lot of their truth.

“It may be the truth as well, but the facts are that it did a lot of damage to the Royal Family and the Americans have a great admiration and respect for the Queen which Meghan and Harry said they had.”

Mr Fitzwilliams said Meghan is “articulate” and “might have a future in politics”, but believes the couple are “unpredictable” meaning this is by no means clear.

He also feels the release of Prince Harry’s upcoming autobiography, Spare, will offer more insight into their thought processes.

In March 2021, the couple sat down with Oprah Winfrey in their home state of California, making a series of bombshell claims against the Firm shortly after stepping back as senior working royals.

During the interview, Meghan claimed a member of the institution had discussed what Archie’s skin tone may have been before his birth, and also described struggles with her mental health.

Buckingham Palace responded by saying “issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning”, adding that “whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately”.
