From actress to royalty … and to politics? Meghan Markle, wife of Prince Harry of England and Duchess of Sussex, could be preparing the ground to make the leap to politics, publishes the newspaper The Sun.
According to this medium, the Duchess held a meeting with Gavin Newsom, the governor of California, which US analysts believe may be a sign that the ex-actress could follow in the footsteps of Arnold Schwarzenegger, another actor who became governor of California.
“He’s doing everything that’s appropriate and allowed given his new position, but he’s definitely ‘sticking your toe in the water. And once your toe is in the water, all your foot is inside and the next thing you know, you’re knee deep and then you’re completely in, “said Mike Trujillo, a strategist for the Democratic Party.
Trujillo believes that Meghan’s foundation on mental health and the commitment to raising awareness about the “racial and economic justice in the tech sector” they could provide the starting point for a career in politics.
“Everything he’s doing is similar to what other people have done before running for office. Arnold Schwarzenegger, before he ran for governor, had a great foundation called Arnold’s All Stars. He used it as a vehicle to talk about the need for after-school tutoring and care. Really easy stuff. That’s what got him into politics, “Trujillo said. Another Democratic strategist, Roger Salazar, added: “I wouldn’t be surprised to see Prince Harry get more involved.”
Breaking a tradition, the Dukes of Sussex broke the proverbial neutrality of the English royal family referring to the last presidential elections in the United States.
Markle called the elections “the most important election of our life. When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard. Your voice is a reminder that you are important. Why do you do it. And you deserve to be heard. “
Prince Harry himself spoke in similar terms: “As we approach this November, it is vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and negativity online, “he said then.
