Meghan Markle would be a’sensational political operative,’ but the Duchess of Sussex has issued a stern warning.

MEGHAN MARKLE would be a “sensational political operative,” but a royal expert has advised the Duchess of Sussex not to use her royal title for political purposes.

Meghan was recently revealed to have personally called US senators to make her case for paid parental leave to elected officials across the country.

“I personally believe that Meghan Markle would be a sensational political operative who embodies the sort of progressive values that could translate to real gains for Americans,” royal commentator Daniela Elser wrote in the Australian news outlet news.com.au.

Please vote for Meg! But the Duchess of Sussex? She has no place near the White House.”

Susan Collins, a Republican senator from Maine, previously told Politico: “Much to my surprise, she called me on my private line.”

“She introduced herself as the Duchess of Sussex, which is kind of ironic,” she said.

“It was a pleasure to speak with her,” the senator added.

But it’s what the people of Maine have to say about it that interests me the most.”

This comes after she wrote an open letter to Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in which she pleaded with them as a “mother” and as the Duchess of Sussex.

“I’m not an elected official, and I’m not a politician,” she began the letter, instead referring to herself as “an engaged citizen and a parent.”

She used her and Prince Harry’s experiences of being “overwhelmed” when their second child, five-month-old Lilibet, was born as a springboard for her advocacy.

“My husband and I welcomed our second child in June,” she revealed.

We were overjoyed, as any parent would be.

“Like many other parents, we were completely overwhelmed.

“We weren’t faced with the harsh reality of either spending those first few critical months with our baby or returning to work, like fewer parents.”

Ms Elser, on the other hand, contrasted the Duchess’ lobbying via this letter and phone calls with the monarchy’s traditional role in dealing with changing politics.

“Let’s be clear here: members of the royal family are required to remain the political equivalent of Switzerland,” she said.

“By convention, members of the Royal Family do not vote and do not dabble in the politics of the day,” she continued.

Ms. Elser isn’t alone in her belief.
