Meghan Markle recently spoke about her heartbreaking return to the United States and her powerful speech to high school students graduating in Los Angeles. She received critical praise from royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams.
Meghan Markle appeared at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Virtual Summit on Tuesday. During the interview, the Duchess of Sussex gave a background about the speech she delivered at the graduating class of Immaculate Heart High School.
She also talked about taking risks on important current affairs. Richard Fitzwilliams, a royal expert and commentator, was impressed with the way Markle puts her thoughts in words.
Meghan Markle is extremely articulate
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams praised Meghan Markle after her interview with Fortune’s Senior Editor, Ellen McGirt. For Fitzwiliams, Prince Harry’s wife is very articulate.
“It is interesting to hear Meghan, an extremely articulate public speaker, explaining the rationale behind her very moving recent speech to those graduating from the Immaculate Heart School which she once attended,” he told Express.
“She is asked about the ‘powerful forces (who) try to take you down’ and she mentions her memories of the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles when she was 11, linking them to the murder of George Floyd and her support for the Black Lives Matter movement as she did in the speech.”
Fitzwilliams also pointed out how Markle gives importance to “being authentic” when she talks about topics like diversity and gender equality. The expert believes that if Markle focuses on her own moral compass and with her commitment, the duchess can probably do bigger things in America.
Fitzwilliams seemed to hint about the rumors of Markle joining the politics.

Spotlight on: The Hubb Community Kitchen It was just one year ago that The Duchess of Sussex made a special visit to the women of The Hubb Community Kitchen to help prepare meals for those in need. The connection between The Duchess and these women began a year prior, as she supported them in the creation of “Together”, a charity cookbook which celebrates the power of cooking to bring communities together. The cookbook showcases recipes from women whose community was affected by the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire in London. Their incredible stories and personal recipes placed “Together” on The New York Times Bestseller List and The Sunday Times Booklist. Today, the women at the Hubb Community Kitchen continue to have a positive impact in their community, across the UK, and around the world. Whether it’s providing a safe space for women and children to come for a hot meal, supporting local schools, serving free lunches to senior citizens, partnering with the Red Cross to provide lunches for refugees, or feeding the homeless – the Hubb helps and heals through their support and sustenance. Thank you, ladies, for the leadership and inspiration that your cooking and love of community brings to all those around you. We remain so very proud of the good work that you continue to do, and cannot wait to see what 2020 brings! Photo © PA / Hubb Kitchen / Jenny Zarin
Markle for president
An insider told Campbell that Markle wants to run for president one day. Campbell added that the duchess planned everything including her move to leave the royal family and return home to Californa.
However, a source close to the duchess denied that the rumors claiming she wants to be a president someday. The source told Vanity Fair’s Katie Nicholl that Markle will run for president if she gives up her royal title. At present, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex still hold their royal title.
At present, the rumors about Markle joining U.S. politics remain hypothetical. The source close to Markle added that she is interested and engaged in politics as a topic. However, she “harbors no ambition to enter a career in politics herself.”
