MEGHAN Markle has been criticised by a Republican congressman after her “laughable” attempt to enter US politics with an open letter.
Missouri Representative Jason Smith has demanded the royal family should strip the Duchess of her title after she signed the letter “Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.”
The Duchess called for paid parental amd medical leave for families, and reflected on her own experiences in a struggling, low-wage family.
But Congressman Smith told the MailOnline: “Ms. Markle’s latest interference in U.S. politics reignites the question in my mind as to why the Royal Family does not simply strip her and Harry officially of their titles, particularly since she insists on sending this under the pretence of being the Duchess of Sussex.”
He continued: “While her attempts at appealing to working class families by recalling her days of eating at Sizzler were laughable, her comments make crystal clear that the passage of this massive tax-and-spend bill is aimed more at helping global elites get huge tax breaks than helping the working families she claims to have dined with.”
Meghan wrote to top US Democrat politicians Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer calling for them to act on giving parents paid parental leave.
