On Thursday, June 30 it was confirmed that feminist campaigner Gloria Steinham has joined Meghan in publicly criticising the court’s decision.
Meghan claims the reaction to the ruling in her house was “guttural”, with the “feminist” Prince Harry equally despairing, she argued it is now essential for legislation enshrining equal rights to be “pushed through”.
Talking to Gloria Steinem for Vogue magazine, the Duchess said: “Well, Gloria, maybe it seems as though you and I will be taking a trip to DC together soon.”
“It is completely nonsensical that that’s even something we’re still fighting for,” Meghan Markle said.
“We have to channel that fear into action, we can start this November in the midterms.”
“I know hearing that feels so repetitive, but we have to vote, every time, from local elections to state and national elections,” she continued.
With regards to the ban on abortion, Meghan said: “It tells us that our physical safety doesn’t matter, and as a result that we don’t matter. But we do. Women matter.”
She added “Being home [in America], seeing what’s happening in our country and feeling energised and motivated, if this is the type of legislation that we need to be pushed through, then this is a moment that I am absolutely going to show up for.”
The news comes just days after we confirmed that the US has turned against Meghan Markle as her popularity in her home country has taken a nosedive.
A YouGov poll of 1,000 US adults from May 18-21, 2022 found Harry and Meghan‘s ratings had plunged, with just 45 per cent having a “favourable or somewhat favourable” view of the Duchess of Sussex.
Less than half (46 per cent) had a “very or somewhat unfavourable” view of her.
Washington-based foreign policy expert and Royal Family enthusiast, Nile Gardiner told Express.co.uk: “The popularity of Meghan and Harry in the US has declined significantly over the course of the year, and that will continue to decline.”
“The image of Meghan is plummeting in the US as it is in the UK.”
“The Queen is hugely admired in the US, as is Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge.”
“Meghan’s image is significantly falling in the US.”
