Prince Charles is warned ahead of the possibility of Meghan Markle joining politics in the U.S. Many believed that when Prince Harry's wife does so, it may cause a problem in the royal household.
Prince Charles Could Allegedly Face Problems If Meghan Markle Pursues A Career In Politics
Many believed that Prince Charles would soon take over the throne because the Queen is already in her advanced years and had been delegating more jobs to him. So, when the time comes when Meghan Markle pursues her political ambition, it will likely fall under the Prince of Wales' reign.
President Joe Biden's sister seemingly encouraged the Duchess of Sussex to join the presidential run. However, doing so might not be good for the royal family.
Former Secretary of State David Mellor weighed in on the opinion of Biden's sister. He warned the Prince of Wales that Markle joining politics may present a "serious problem" to her father-in-law.
"Joe Biden has a sister, who seems as intellectually switched on as he is, and she began an interview by saying she thought Meghan Marke should become a member of the democratic party and ended up backing her for president," Mellor told GB News, per Express. "Getting back to where we were with Charles, this is where Charles has got problems, I mean, serious problems."
"Getting back to where we were with Charles, this is where Charles has got problems, I mean, serious problems."
He claimed that there is "no end to her volting ambitions," referring to Prince Harry's wife. For Mellor, Markle wasn't a star like Grace Kelly and only worked on a soap before she catapulted to fame. However, he was convinced that Markle, herself believed "she could be the president of the United States."
Why Meghan Markle's Possible Political Career Is A Problem To Prince Charles?
Prince Harry's wife is a strong, independent, and smart woman. When Meghan Markle was 11, she campaigned for equality after seeing a dishwashing ad suggesting that women were meant to be in the kitchen washing dishes. The Duchess of Sussex is all about global feminism, parity, and equality.
In 2015, she delivered a speech at the U. N. Women conference about gender and equality.
"Women need a seat at the table. They need an invitation to be seated there, and in some cases, where this is not available, well then… they need to create their own table," Markle said.
While Markle's causes are good ground to start her political career, doing could probably present an issue in the monarchy. The Queen and the future monarchs are expected to have an impartial relationship with party politics.
"You’ve got to be very careful in terms of how anything reflects on the Queen," CNN royal commentator Victoria Arbiter told TIME. "She’s a politically neutral head of state. And the family is very careful in terms of where they go, because they can’t cause her any embarrassment."
The royal family tends to limit their involvement in politics to the humanitarian side and avoid taking a political side or parties like in Brexit issues.
Arbiter's comment will still hold true when Prince Charles takes over the throne. When the Prince of Wales becomes the new king, he is expected to practice neutrality in politics.
