EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Meghan Markle wants to become more ‘politically engaged’ and could even intervene in the U.S. presidential election
RICHARD EDEN: With courtiers already alarmed at how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex plan to cash in on their royal connections, this will have them reaching for the smelling salts.
‘The Duchess is said to be frustrated that she was forced to stay out of politics after getting engaged to Harry,’ a royal source tells me.
‘She has strong political opinions and will now take advantage of the greater freedom she has to express them publicly.’
The source claims that Meghan may even make some sort of intervention in the U.S. presidential election later this year.
Before she met Harry, the American actress attacked Donald Trump for being ‘divisive’ and ‘misogynistic’.
While the Duchess no longer needs to adhere to the convention that the royals stay above party politics, she could still provoke a diplomatic storm if she chose to renew her attacks on Trump or become involved in politics in Canada, where she and Harry are now living with baby Archie.
