Meghan Markle set to receive invite to 'address the Senate' from Pelosi, expert claims

A radio host has claimed that a visit to Washington DC could be on the cards for Meghan Markle following her letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer, which lobbied for parental paid leave in the US. According to Mike Graham, Meghan “knows very well” that Nancy Pelosi would enjoy the publicity, as both he and royal expert Angela Levin predict a transition to politics for the Duchess. Since leaving the Royal Family, she and Prince Harry have established themselves in the US as activists and public figures. 

Mike Graham, a host on talkRADIO, said: “She knows very well that Nancy Pelosi is of a similar bent, Nancy Pelosi loves a bit of publicity so she’ll love the idea that she’s had the letter.

“So no doubt, the next step will be ‘why don’t you come to Washington and we can have you address the Senate about the issue of childcare?’ or some nonsense.”

Royal expert Angela Levin continued: “This is what she wants of course, I mean she really does want to try and be a politician.

“She also wants to make films, she wants to star in them, she also wants to tell people how to invest their money. “

In the letter, Meghan addressed herself as the Duchess of Sussex and wrote that she was writing as a mother. 

She noted that millions of women have dropped out of the workforce at “an alarming rate” and acknowledged the role of the pandemic in revealing faults within society, writing: “The working mom or parent is facing the conflict of being present or being paid.”

She also spoke of her own childhood, recalling how she felt “lucky” to be eating a $4.99 salad at Sizzler and that she had begun to earn her own money from the age of 13. 

Meghan wrote: “I knew how hard my parents worked to afford this because even at five bucks, eating out was something special, and I felt lucky.”

She had asked 40 friends and activists to donate 40 minutes of their time to mentoring an unemployed woman. In a statement on the couple’s Archewell website, Meghan wrote that women had been “shouldering the brunt” of the crisis, with over 2 million women in the US alone leaving the workforce. 

Since leaving the Royal Family, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have established themselves as leading activists.

In September, they conducted a three-day tour of New York, where they met with New York’s mayor Bill de Blasio, joined a roundtable discussion with the World Health Organisation and gave a speech at the Global Citizen Live concert. 

They have also launched their own non-profit foundation Archewell and have signed a £100million deal with Netflix and Spotify.

The couple currently reside in Montecito in California with their two children.
