Meghan Markle has reportedly been telling those close to her that her instinct to leave the United Kingdom makes sense to her now because she was “destined” to fight systemic racism in the United States.
A source close to Meghan told Daily Mail that she believes her “gnawing urgency to uproot from England” was actually fate, as she was meant to be in America so she could be at the “forefront” of this movement.
“Meghan said her work as a leader is more important than ever right now and that she’s been speaking with Oprah and other community leaders on how she can be part of the solution,” the insider said. “Meghan feels like her mission goes far beyond acting. She said she wants to use her voice for change and hasn’t ruled out a career in politics.”
This comes weeks after Meghan spoke out about the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota last month. In a commencement speech she gave at the high school she once graduated from herself, Meghan declared that “black lives matter” and said she had been “nervous” to speak out earlier.
“I wasn’t sure what I could say to you,” Meghan said. “I wanted to say the right thing and I was really nervous that it would get picked apart. And I realized the only wrong thing to say is to say nothing.”
Meghan has also distanced herself from her former best friend Jessica Mulroney after the stylist was involved in a “white privilege” scandal that saw her threaten black fashion influencer Sasha Exeter. A source said that Meghan was so “mortified” by Mulroney’s “tone-deaf” threats that she feels she can “no longer be associated with her.”
“Meghan is absolutely mortified that she’s been dragged into this complete mess. She said Jessica is in no way a racist, but the way she handled the situation (with the fashion influencer) was tone-deaf and heartbreaking,” the close friend of Meghan’s said.
“Meghan said friends reflect friends and because of what’s at stake she can no longer be associated with Jessica, at least not in public,” the friend added. “She has to do what she has to do in order to preserve her dignity and her own reputation.”
