It seems that Meghan Markle never learned rule one of being royal. The Royal Family is supposed to be an apolitical institution.

Before any conspiracy theories about Meghan Markle using MI6 spies to get phone numbers for US senators could start up Senator Kirsten Gillibrand a democrat from New York, revealed she was the mole inside the senate. Senator Gillibrand said that she intended to give her colleagues a heads-up before they got those Markle calls. She told Politico,
“I talked to each of the women senators and let them know that she’s going to reach out, because she only completed two of the calls,”

Folks Across The Pond Are Not Happy With The News
Colin Brazier of GB News part of Richard Branson’s Virgin Media group was one of the many British journalists that went on a rant about the incident. Claiming that his biggest problem with the whole incident was Meghan introducing herself as the Duchess of Sussex. Piers Morgan a well-known Meghan Markle adversary threw shade at her. Calling for her titles to be fully removed in a tweet that reads,
“Just outrageous for Princess Pinocchio to use her royal title for political lobbying like this. The Queen must stop the Sussexes causing such endless damage to the Monarchy’s reputation. Take their titles away.”
At the time of writing, there has been no formal response from The Royal Family. Although it does seem likely that Meghan & Harry will eventually end up being just that. Meghan and Harry Mountbatten-Windsor or maybe Harry will take up the Markle surname who knows!
‘Harry and Meghan know they can earn a fortune and wield influence out of all proportion with their abilities, if they leverage their royal status’
