Possible diplomatic incident in the British Royal Family. To mess up the strict rules and protocols of the royal family would be Meghan Markle again together with Prince Harry. The wife of Queen Elizabeth’s nephew would have totally ignored one of the cardinal rules of the Windsors, namely political neutrality. In fact, it seems that the former actress has taken sides to promote the approval of paid parental leave in the United States, where the Dukes of Sussex have chosen to live. A “stunt” that could cost him the revocation of the title of Duchess, if His Majesty decides to intervene. Meghan addressed the US Congress by writing a letter addressed to the speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, and the leader of the majority in the Senate, the dem Chuck Schumer. Starting from her personal history, the Duchess would have supported President Joe Biden’s bill “American Families Plan”, which provides for 12 weeks of paid leave of up to 80%. Markle’s support comes, however, late as the proposed plan for American families has already been approved, the only discussion still open would be the decision on the number of weeks of leave.

“Harry and I, like all parents, were delighted to welcome the children. – Meghan Markle writes- Like many parents, we were super happy. Like few parents, we didn’t have to face the harsh reality of having to choose whether to spend the first few months with our daughter or go back to work ”. Emphasizing that “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 ”. Then he continues with the rhetoric: “By taking care of her child, a mother takes care of the community, therefore of her country”. The reference to modest childhood is inevitable: “I grew up with Sizzler’s $ 4.99 salads. Maybe they cost even less, but I remember what it meant, that is to understand that mum and dad couldn’t afford anything more expensive ”. The Duchess then apparently distances herself from politics: “Because I was not elected and I am not a politician, I am simply writing to you as a mother, on behalf of millions of American families”. Finally, he seems to have signed the letter with his name, that of Prince Harry and his sons. Will the Queen turn a blind eye?
