‘She has things to say’ Meghan Markle fuels presidential bid rumours after Washington hint


MEGHAN MARKLE has continued to fuel speculation she could be heading for a career in politics, and ITV’s Lorraine Kelly threw her support behind the rumoured career change.

Talking about Meghan’s potential in politics, Lorraine said: “This is where she really, like I said, comes into her own.

“And it raises that whole speculation of whether or not she’s going to go into politics.”

“Well absolutely,” Russell replied. “And that’s been said for quite a while now, because Prince Harry and Meghan have moved over to the United States, they’ve got their financial freedom, they’ve got their essential freedom from the Royal Family.

“So they can speak on political issues, and certainly Meghan was speaking to Vogue at the weekend, talking about Roe vs Wade, the very, very controversial abortion law that has been repealed in the US.

“And Meghan’s said, ‘We might be in Washington very soon,’ so does she have political ambitions?”

Giving his own view, the royal expert went on: “I do think she does.

“And she’s certainly rubbing shoulders with the right people and making the right noises.

“So sometimes it might not seem so ludicrous that she might stand for office, because she’s certainly making the right noises.”

“I don’t think it’s ludicrous at all,” Lorraine shared. “She’s got things to say and she’s got an astonishing platform and she could make a real difference.”

It comes as rumours continue to spiral over Meghan’s ambitions.

Speaking to Vogue, the former actress recently commented: “Women are already sharing stories of how their physical safety is being put in danger.

She added: “What does this tell women? It tells us that our physical safety doesn’t matter, and as a result that we don’t matter. But we do. Women matter.”

The Duchess went on to say: “It feels like the tip of the iceberg and is part of why people feel so scared.”

Talking about Harry’s view, she continued: “My husband and I talked about that a lot over the past few days.

“He’s a feminist too. And his reaction last week was guttural, like mine.

I know that for so many women right now, there is a sentiment of despair.

“We have to channel that fear into action. We can start this November in the midterms. We have to vote, every time.

“What happens with our bodies is so deeply personal, which can also lead to silence and stigma, even though so many of us deal with personal health crises.

“The more that we normalise [the] conversation about the things that affect our lives and bodies, the more people are going to understand how necessary it has to have protections in place.”

Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV.
