Meghan Markle is ‘certainly making the right noises’ when it comes to a potential career in US politics, according to royal expert Russell Myers.
Speaking on the ‘Lorraine’ program today, he spoke about the comments Meghan, 40, made to Vogue over the weekend about the repeal of Roe v. Wade during a conversation with author and feminist activist Gloria Steinem, 88, and journalist Jessica Yellin.
The Duchess of Sussex, 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 fights to protect abortion rights, adding that Harry is a feminist and reacted angrily to the Supreme Court decision.
The conversation reignited rumors that the royal might be planning to enter politics, which Russell said he thought was likely.
Meghan Markle, 40, pictured here with her husband Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in the Netherlands in April, has reignited rumors that she may be considering a political career following her comments on abortion.
According to royal expert Russell Myers, the Duchess is “certainly making the right noises” if she wants to pursue a political career.
‘Prince Harry and Megan have moved to the United States. They have their financial freedom. They have their essential freedom from the royal family so they can talk about political issues,” Myers said.
“And certainly Meghan was talking to Vogue over the weekend, talking about Roe versus Wade, a very, very controversial abortion law that has been struck down in the United States.”
Meghan also hinted in her Vogue conversation that a trip to the political capital could be on the cards, suggesting that she and Gloria might “take a trip to DC together soon.”
Referring to this, Myers said: ‘Now Meghan has said, you know, that [she] could be in Washington very soon.
So, do you have political ambitions? I think she does. And she certainly rubs shoulders with the right people and makes the right noises.

“So, you know, sometimes it might not seem so ridiculous that she can run for office because she’s certainly making the right noises.”
During the conversation with Vogue, Meghan said that all men must join women in the fight to protect abortion rights.
“Men need to speak up right now and beyond because these are decisions that affect relationships, families and communities at large,” he said. “They may target women, but the consequences affect us all.
‘My husband and I talked about it a lot in the last few days. He is also a feminist.
Meghan Markle and Gloria Steinem spoke to Vogue about repealing Roe v. Wade this weekend, sparking new rumors about Meghan’s political ambitions.
Steinem, who was approached by Markle in 2020, when the duchess realized she was taking shelter during the pandemic near her home in California, said she could confirm that Harry was deeply interested in women’s rights.
He called the couple “chosen family”.
“His reaction last week was guttural, like mine,” Markle said. “I know that for many women right now, there is a feeling of despair. But again, we have to come 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 our bodies,” referring to her decision to speak out in November 2020 about her own miscarriage.
“This is about the physical safety of women,” he said.
Markle said her husband, Prince Harry, was a feminist who reacted to news of the repeal of Roe v. Wade in a ‘throat’ way
It is 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 to make, that is unsafe or that puts their own life in danger.’
Steinem told the story of her own abortion, performed in London, which she said allowed her to live the life she chose.
“Here you are talking to two women: one who chose to give birth happily and one who chose not to give birth happily,” Markle said.
“And we’re both thriving because we were able to make our own decisions.”

Meghan drew some criticism from Republicans for her comments, with some saying they did not want British royals to have a say in American politics.
Representative Lisa McClain (R-MI) said: ‘This is just another attempt by former royals to insert their British drama into American politics.
“I don’t think anyone on this side of the pond cares about Meghan Markle’s opinion on killing babies. However, I think her run for president would be a great episode for “The Crown.” ‘
Meanwhile, Rep. Buddy Carter added, “I think the Americans made it pretty clear in 1776 that they don’t want members of the British royal family making decisions for them.”
