After Prince Harry, Meghan Markle can write her own groundbreaking memoir that will place her in a well-worn American political tradition

January 2, 2023

Meghan Markle could follow in her husband’s footsteps and write her own groundbreaking memoir after Prince Harry published Spare this month. If this happens, many believe it will be another attack on the royal family and perhaps a step into the US political world.

Prince Harry’s Spare promises a raw, unvarnished reality in which he reveals his life as a prince and, as the title suggests, replacing Prince William, next in line to the throne. So will Meghan Markle follow suit?

According to express a source has revealed the Duchess of Sussex is considering being open about her time in the royal spotlight. She allegedly has every intention of writing her own book and will leave no stone unturned.

Another Hollywood agent also told the Mail on Sunday that it would be a surprise if the former Suits star didn’t release her own account after her husband did. Spare will be the Duke of Sussex’s chance to tell his own version of the story, but hers will surely be just as compelling, if not more so.

I mean, how many actresses end up marrying a prince? the agent asked. It’s also good to know that the pair have signed a four-book deal with publisher Penguin Random House in 2021.

So after Meghan Markle’s children’s book The Bench, Prince Harry’s Spare and the wellness book they’re said to be working on, there’s only one book left and many believe it will be the mother-of-two’s memoir.

The Mail added that a best-selling autobiography would place the 41-year-old in a well-worn American political tradition, as there are rumors she wants a seat at the office. Given her outspoken views on women’s rights and other political issues, many believe she could enter the political world in one way or another.

Another source claimed that if she had political ambitions, it would make perfect sense to write a book. Former presidents like Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump wrote books outlining their beliefs before running for the White House.

To back up this claim, Meghan Markle has developed a close relationship with some of the political royals in the US, such as the Kennedy family. In fact, she and Prince Harry even received an award from the nonprofit Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Organization for their work against structural racism within the royal family.

She is also good friends with feminist icon Gloria Steinem, who remains active in liberal politics. Still, fans and critics alike are watching Meghan Markle’s next move.
