Queen urged to strip Meghan Markle’s royal title for interfering in US politics

A US legislator has suggested that the Queen revoke Meghan Markle’s royal title for “interfering” in American politics by lobbying for paid parental leave for all new parents in America.

The duchess wrote a lengthy note to Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer detailing times in her childhood when she was forced to participate in middle-class activities, such as working as a teen for gas money and eating at a salad bar, in order to push for the national paid family leave program, which is tucked into Democrats’ budget reconciliation plan for social spending.

Rep. Jason Smith of Missouri told the Mail Online that the royal family should depose Markle after she signed the letter “Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.”

“Ms. Markle’s latest interference in U.S. politics reignites the question in my mind as to why the Royal Family does not simply strip her and Harry officially of their titles, particularly since she insists on sending this under the pretense of being the Duchess of Sussex,” Smith told the publication.

“While her attempts at appealing to working class families by recalling her days of eating at Sizzler were laughable, her comments make crystal clear that the passage of this massive tax-and-spend bill is aimed more at helping global elites get huge tax breaks than helping the working families she claims to have dined with.”

The letter fueled speculation that Markle was employing ‘tactics of an aspiring politician’ to pitch two prominent Washington figures on Joe Biden’s proposed parental and sick leave legislation in a 1000-word letter issued on the Sussexes’ own letterhead.

‘Meghan Markle is incredibly out of touch with the American people and should stick to acting instead of trying to play politics,’ said Rep. Lisa McClain, R-Mich.

“The last thing we need right now is wealthy celebrities pushing their liberal agendas on the American people,” she continued.

Smith was one of a few public figures who chastised the duke and duchess for pushing Americans to vote in the 2020 presidential election. Many people believed that royals are meant to be politically apolitical.

In statements about the election delivered at the end of September, when some states began early voting, Prince Harry urged people to ‘reject hate speech,’ while Meghan referred to November 3 as the ‘most important election of our lifetime.’

However, a spokesman for the pair told Insider in November 2020 that the couple had no intentions to stop discussing politics after the election period was done.

    Really? With all the chaos happening in country and D.C., I would think you would have a long list of priorities that are more urgent and important than worrying about a letter from Meghan Markle! Your comments are either inaccurate or incredibly out of line. To clarify, the letter was sent to not only Pelosi and Schumer. I have read comments from the two
    Republican Female Senators that also received letters. The same article also stated that several members of congress on both sides were going to receive the letter. Why is it so threatening to you that she is communicating with congress. It is not a tax and spend bill. You are not being honest. The bill is being funded through taxes paid by only the ultra wealthy. In addition, the bill will be financed through cost reductions in other areas and reallocations. The bill will not increase taxes for the middle and lower classes. If you understand differently, I would suggest you actually read the bill. This bill is extremely popular with the majority of voters on both sides. The programs included in the bill are basic programs that every industrialized country has offered to their citizens for many years. These are programs that will benefit everybody and will help strengthen the nation. I for one and tired of falling behind the rest of the world in every category. Lstly, Meghan Markle is a citizen of the United States of America. She has every right to sent letters to whomever she sees fit. Do you not realize that you are doing exactly the same thing that you’re condemning or doing. By asking the Queen to strip her of her title, you are interfering with English politics. It is the same thing. ‘what right do you have to interfere in UK politics? At least Meghan is a citizen of the country. I’m certain that making direct request to the
    Queen is not allowed by members of congress. Your claims are baseless. When Harry and Meghan stepped down as working members of the
    royal family, they were no longer required to follow protocol set forth by the crown. Also In no was is the bill designed to benefit the global social elite. Is that even a thing? It really has begome embarrasing to witness the debacle called congress in D.C. and your comments as stated in this article are a joke. The US continues to lose the respect it once had from the rest of the world and yet congress simply continues to be divided which is our biggest challenge currently. Until you all grow up and play nicely we are going nowhere. So please dig those eels in and don’t make an effort. I’m in my 60’s and I never thought our great country could become such a mess.
