"Thought Royal Were Meant To Be Apolitical." Meghan Markle Faces Wrath Of Furious Royal Fans For Hanging Out With Hilary Clinton

November 15, 2019 16:36

Hillary Clinton and Meghan Markle's friendship may sound quite strange. But it turns out that these two do happen to respect each other very much.

In fact, we can say Hillary is a fan of the Duchess of Sussex and that's based, in part, on the support the politician has shown the royal in the last few months.

In September, the former First Lady of the United States shared a post on social media where she declared that she was inspired by the royal mom of one.

Hilary appreciated Meghan for her Smart Works project which was aimed at helping struggling women get the officewear essentials they needed to be prepared for interviews.

Of course, she'll have a lot of things going on behind the scenes, including hanging out with people that are near and dear to her.

According to the DailyMail, the Duchess played host to Hillary Clinton at their Frogmore Cottage recently. Sources told the publication that the two women hugged and seemed very friendly.

It was also reported that Prince Harry and their son Archie were there to welcome the 72-year-old politician who got to cuddle and play with the little one

The source claimed:

Both women have a lot of admiration for each other and it was a very sweet, warm meeting. they are mutual fan girls!

Social media fans react

Some people felt that these two women hanging out was simply inappropriate. A few even wondered if a meeting of this nature was against the royal protocol since it appears as if the Sussexes are taking sides in political matters.

@Responsible James:

Ignore Trump, hug Hillary. Thought royals were meant to be apolitical.

@Sarah:

This is unacceptable. I'm no fan of Trump, but he IS the POTUS and minor royals should not be receiving private visits from his opponents.

@Freedomofspeech4som:

Surprised that the Queen would allow this.

It wasn't all hate, though, as some users defended the Duchess.

@April Brown

You forgot that Meghan had a life before she married Harry. You don't own Meghan. She can meet and go where she pleases.

@fl2007m:

This makes me think that Meghan Markle might have some political aspirations in the future. No doubt running for some kind of political office and California.

While Meghan Markle, as a public figure, usually invites a lot of scrutinies, it's possible that she also has some friendships that she'd rather remain private about. Since the nature of her friendship with Hillary isn't really known, it may be unfair to judge based on unconfirmed claims.
