MEGHAN Markle has taken her first steps at attempting to forage a political career a royal expert has claimed.
The Duchess of Sussex, 40, wrote a letter to two Democratic lawmakers in Washington DC, making a plea for paid parental leave in the US.
America currently has no system for paid parental leave, although President Joe Biden has vowed to introduce it.
Royal experts have called her letter, addressed to Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, a “first try” for the Duchess to move into politics.
Angela Levin, author of Harry: A Biography of a Prince, said: “Meghan’s first try for a political role perhaps.
“She’s writing to Nancy Pelosi and Charles Schumer ‘on behalf of all families’ to get paid leave.
“Good enough cause but what is her real motive and will hypocrisy rear its head again?”
In the letter she spoke about being lucky enough to afford time off with Harry after the birth of Lili in June.
Meghan was also accused of trying to make herself and Harry “like the Obama’s” with their Time magazine cover, and expert’s claims that she was “primed” for a political career.
Meghan’s impressive letter comes after a “royal-style” tour of New York with Prince Harry, which saw them meet politicians and school children.
The couple, who stepped down from royal duties in January 2020, were also snapped with ‘mics’ attached to them.
They were accompanied by their personal videographer on their hectic trip this week, sparking rumours they were recording their work.
The cameraman closely followed the Duke and Duchess around the city and even ran ahead of them for the perfect shot before they toured the 9/11 Memorial.
Harry and Meghan also brought their own photographer, Matt Sayles, to capture key moments on their visit to the Big Apple.
The couple also spoke at the Global Citizen gig with stars, including Coldplay and J.Lo, where tickets sold for up to £850.
They then shot around New York in with three gas guzzling SUVs with a whole patrol of security people before talking to the UN about ‘climate action’.
Sources claimed that Meghan was planning to become America’s first female president following the failed bid of Hilary Clinton several years ago.
The source added that she had been networking among senior Democrats back in March of this year.
They said she had a view of fundraising for president, adding: “The Blairite, internationalist and Democratic party networks are buzzing with talk about Meghan’s political ambitions and potential backers.”
If Meghan did succeed she would be the US’ first ever female president and only the second ever non-white president after Barack Obama.
