Meghan ‘muted’ by Royals – but expert claims she won’t be ‘silenced’ for long

Before she married Prince Harry, Meghan Markle was known for her powerful speeches and campaigning.

She spoke about women’s right, education and even called Donald Trump "misogynistic" and "divisive" during a TV interview.

But one of the many things she had to adapt to when she became the Duchess of Sussex was becoming impartial when it comes to the big issues, especially politics.

Meghan has done just this since her wedding day back in May, but one royal expert believes that even though she’s been "muted" for now, it won’t last long.

Speaking on his podcast Robert Jobson’s Royal Podcast, the Evening Standard’s royal editor explains: "Perhaps the most important rule that has implications for the survival of the ancient and unelected institution is that the royal family is not allowed to vote, hold any type of political office or speak publicly about politics.

"They must certainly not be seen to be supporting one political party above another as to do so could cause a constitutional crisis", reports the Express.

Speaking about how Meghan has spoken passionately about political issues in the past, he adds: "Such strident opinions would have to be muted as she embraces her life as a member of the royal family."

But he believes Meghan is "not afraid to use her voice" and will "not easily be silenced by the niceties of royal protcol."

In sharp contrast, her sister-in-law Kate Middleton has always remained completely unbiased on politically issues.

Meghan, who is expecting her first child in the spring, has given a number of speeches since taking her position, including a number during her first Royal Tour.

She’s expected to announce which charities she will officially support in the new year, and she has already raised thousands with a charity cookbook.

The best selling book raises cash to support a community kitchen which helps people affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
