Meghan Markle is now free to take a political stance ever since she and Prince Harry broke aside from the Royal Family. The 40-year-old has spoken out about certain topics up to now, and most recently told Vogue she “is perhaps in Washington very soon”. Discussing this with royal editor Russell Myers, ITV presenter Lorraine said she doesn’t view the concept as “ludicrous”.
Meghan broke her silence on the Supreme Court’s controversial overturning of Roe v Wade, branding the choice “a blueprint for reversing rights”.
Talking about Meghan’s potential in politics, Lorraine said: “That is where she really, like I said, comes into her own.
“And it raises that whole speculation of whether or not she’s going to enter politics.”
“Well absolutely,” Russell replied. “And that is been said for quite some time now, because Prince Harry and Meghan have moved over to america, they have their financial freedom, they have their essential freedom from the Royal Family.

“In order that they can speak on political issues, and definitely Meghan was chatting with Vogue on the weekend, talking about Roe vs Wade, the very, very controversial abortion law that has been repealed within the US.
“And Meghan’s said, ‘We is perhaps in Washington very soon,’ so does she have political ambitions?”
Giving his own view, the royal expert went on: “I do think she does.
“And she or he’s actually rubbing shoulders with the fitting people and making the fitting noises.
“Women with resources will travel to get an abortion, those without might attempt to offer themselves one at tremendous risk.”
She added: “What does this tell women? It tells us that our physical safety doesn’t matter, and consequently that we do not matter. But we do. Women matter.”
The Duchess went on to say: “It appears like the tip of the iceberg and is a component of why people feel so scared.”
Talking about Harry’s view, she continued: “My husband and I talked about that so much over the past few days.
“He’s a feminist too. And his response last week was guttural, like mine.
I do know that for therefore many ladies right away, there’s a sentiment of despair.
“Now we have to channel that fear into motion. We will start this November within the midterms. Now we have to vote, each time.
“What happens with our bodies is so deeply personal, which can even result in silence and stigma, though so a lot of us take care of personal health crises.
“The more that we normalise [the] conversation concerning the things that affect our lives and bodies, the more individuals are going to know how vital it has to have protections in place.”
Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV.
