Meghan Puts Queen in a Corner by Entering U.S. Politics with British Title
“Hypocrite” Meghan Markle Markets Her Duchess Title for Personal Gain
Last week, two U.S. senators came forward about getting a “surprise call” from a blocked number, with the caller representing herself as “Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.”
It turned out it was Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D.N.Y, who gave the “Suits” alum the private numbers of the senators so that she can lobby them to vote to include paid leave in her party’s social spending bill.
Writer Daniela Elsa addressed the issue in her column on News.com.au. She called it hypocritical for Meghan to dearly cling to her title despite having stepped down as a working royal.
She said: “What is a real head scratcher here is why Meghan continues to wheel out her title in such instances as these calls to Senator when she must know it’s like holding a red rag to a bull?
“Why endanger the most marketable thing going for the couple?
“For one thing, it makes her look like a hypocrite. She and Harry didn’t want to remain a part of the royal stable but are happy to keep using the trappings that came with said job when it suits her purposes? Riiiight.”
She added that Meghan’s obsession with using her Duchess title in her political and non-political interests means that she’s “pushing the Queen into even more of a corner”.
