Meghan Markle is ‘making the right noises’ if she wants to pursue a political career, expert says

Meghan Markle is definitely making the right noises when it comes to a possible career in American politics, according to royal expert Russell Myers.

On today’s Lorraine show, he discussed the Comments Meghan, 40, made this weekend to Vogue about the retraction of Roe v. Wade while talking with feminist author and activist Gloria Steinem, 88, and journalist Jessica Yellin.

The Duchess, who lives in Montecito, California, with her husband Prince Harry, 37, and their children Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, said all men should join women in the fight to protect abortion rights, adding that Harry is a feminist, and he reacted furiously to the Supreme Court’s decision.

The talk circulated rumors that the royal family may have been planning to go into politics, which Russell says is likely.

He said: ‘Prince Harry and Megan have moved to the United States.

“They have their financial freedom. They have been given their essential freedom from the royal family so that they can speak on political issues.

“And sure, Megan spoke to Vogue this weekend about Roe versus Wade, a very, very controversial abortion law that has been repealed in the US.”

Meghan also hinted during the Vogue interview that a trip to the political capital is at stake, suggesting she and Gloria “could travel to DC together soon.”

Referring to this, Russell said, “Now Megan has said, you know, that… [she] maybe very soon in Washington.

‘So she has political ambitions? I think she does. And she definitely rubs shoulders with the right people and makes the right noises.

“So, you know, sometimes it might not seem so ridiculous that she’s running because she’s definitely making all the right noises.”

Speaking to Vogue over the weekend, Meghan said all men should join women in the fight to protect abortion rights.

“Men need to vote now and beyond because these are decisions that affect relationships, families and communities in general,” she said.

“They may be targeting women, but the consequences affect all of us.

“My husband and I have been talking about this a lot over the past few days. He’s also a feminist.’

Steinem, who was contacted by Markle in 2020 when the Duchess realized she was hiding near their California home during the pandemic, said she could confirm Harry was deeply interested in women’s rights.

She called the couple “chosen family.”

“He responded with guttural sounds like mine did last week,” Markle said.

“I know there is a sense of despair for so many women right now. But again, we need to work together and not wallow. We have to do the work.’

The mother of two said it was important to “normalize the conversation about the things that affect our lives and bodies,” citing her own decision to speak out about her own miscarriage in November 2020.

“This is about women’s physical safety,” she said.

Markle said her husband, Prince Harry, was a feminist who reacted in a “guttural” way to the news of Roe v. Wade’s withdrawal.

‘It’s also about economic justice, individual autonomy and who we are as a society. No one should be forced to make a decision that they don’t want, or that is unsafe, or endangers their own life.’

Steinem told the story of her own abortion, performed in London, which she says allowed her to live the life she chose.

“Here it is with two women: one who chose to give birth happily, and one who chose not to give birth happily,” Markle said.

“And we’re both doing well because we’ve been able to make our own choices.”

Meghan has been met with some reticence from Republicans over her comments, with some saying she didn’t want the British royals to have a say in American politics.

Representative Lisa McClain (R-MI) said: “This is just another attempt by the ex-royals to integrate their British drama into American politics.

“I don’t think anyone on this side of the pond cares about Meghan Markle’s views on killing babies. But I think her candidacy for president would be a great episode for The Crown.”

Meanwhile, Rep. Buddy Carter admitted, “I think Americans made it pretty clear in 1776 that they don’t want members of the British Royal Family to make decisions for them.”
