Meghan Markle could leverage the “war” she is waging, alongside Prince Harry, against the Royal Family as a means to gain the Democrats’ sympathy and prepare her run for a spot in the US party, a royal expert claimed. The California-based couple has taken several swipes at the Firm since they left the Royal Family with multi-million projects, accusing them of planting stories against Meghan to divert attention from their own scandals. Richard Fitzwilliams suggested Meghan could use Harry’s imminent book and its damaging allegations to upstage royals and make a name for herself among Democratic circles.
Asked whether the Sussexes could bring down the Royal Family, Mr Fitzwilliams said: “Absolutely not. But their feeling – and I would suggest that they are the ones who feel entitled – is that the Royal Family has to be accountable for its errors in the way it handled its relationship with them when they were senior working royals.
“They therefore must in a sense apologise.
“It had me wondering quite frankly – we don’t know where they’re going in future years – but this could be used as some sort of springboard for Meghan in a possible run for the Democratic party politician, or they could be celebrity philanthropists.”
“This unquestionably shows that they’re at war with the monarchy,” Mr Fitzwilliams told GB News.
Meghan’s actions in recent months have fuelled reports that she could throw her hat in the ring and launch her bid to become a member of the Democratic Party.
In the run-up to the heated US mid-term elections last November, she posted a photo of herself wearing an “I voted” sticker, while sharing a checklist to help her fellow citizens exercise their democratic right.
The Duchess was then accused of “playing a slightly dangerous game” by campaigning against voter suppression – an electoral strategy that Republicans have sought to put in place.
Daily Express’ Royal Correspondent Richard Palmer told the Royal Round-Up: “There was huge consternation at Buckingham Palace because although Meghan has never said which way to vote, she was taking part in a campaign to get people to register to vote and against voter suppression.
“And rightly or wrongly, that was seen as essentially being a Democrat-leaning campaign.”
