When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry first moved to America, there was widespread debate how the couple would and should wield their considerable influence.

Fans hoped that the Sussexes would involve themselves in politics and humanitarian causes, while critics cautioned that doing so would create considerable controversy.

The situation came to a head back in October, when Meghan wrote an open letter to Congress urging members to pass a bill ensuring paid family leave for all Americans.

“Today, we’re sending a message that childcare isn’t just a community imperative—it’s a business imperative. Creating a stronger workforce starts with meeting the needs of families,” 

Meghan’s comments echo remarks that she made in last year’s letter to Congress.

“No family should have to choose between earning a living and having the freedom to take care of their child (or a loved one, or themselves, as we would see with a comprehensive paid leave plan),” she wrote.
