Meghan Markle mocked for pushing US policy that had ‘already gone through’
October 22, 2021
Meghan Markle has been mocked for trying to push through a law that had already been decided.
According to royal biographer Angela Levin, the Duchess of Sussex wrote a letter lobbying for mandatory paid parental leave in the United States after it had passed through.
The letter to the Democrat speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and the Majority Leader in the US Senate Chuck Schumer, was signed by Archi, Lili and Harry.
Levin has accused the mother-of-two of "jumping on the bandwagon" so she can claim credit for the bill once it has officially been passed.
The royal biographer told TalkRADIO: "She's also trying to get a policy put through of parental leave, for the Government to pay parental leave, when it's already gone through actually."
The Express reports that Levin continued: "The thing they haven't decided is how long each family can use it for.
"She sort of jumped on the bandwagon as she often does so she can claim it was her letter 'that done it'.
"Also the signature at the end. This is a professional letter to senior politicians and the signature is then by her and also by Archie, Lili and Harry.
"But surely Archie and Lili aren't yet involved in having parental leave."

Ms Levin added: "I think it's yet another shock for Megan which has got loads of publicity, which is obviously one aim of it.
"She has abused the royal thing of being a British royal or, you know, working as a British royal because she's actually trying to tell another government what to do.
"The heading on the paper is the office of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex Yeah, which is definitely an abuse.

"The other thing is she takes on different types, you know, she becomes a sort of young sort of guru, saying that she understands how these families feel she's representing the families, how does she know that I mean this is Megan taking the global view again."
Recalling the hardship her parents faced during her childhood, Meghan counts herself lucky in the letter that neither she or Harry were under strain to return to work soon after their children's births.
But acknowledged the majority of Americans are not quite so lucky.
Meghan wrote: "No family should be faced with these decisions. No family should have to choose between earning a living and having the freedom to take care of their child."
