Republicans are telling Meghan Markle to 'stick to acting' and daring the royal family to strip her of her title after she wrote a letter to Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen.

Majority Leader Chuck Schumer advocating for paid family leave on Thursday.

The duchess wrote a lengthy note detailing times in her childhood when she was forced to participate in middle class activities, like getting a job as a teen for gas money and eating at a salad bar, in order to push for the national paid family leave program tucked into Democrats' budget reconciliation plan for social spending. .

Republicans are telling Meghan Markle to 'stick to acting' and daring the royal family to strip her of her title after she advoacted for paid family leave on Thursday.

The letter sparked rumors that Markle was using the 'tactics of an aspiring politician' to lobby two senior Washington figures on Joe Biden's proposed parental and sick leave legislation in a 1000-word letter sent on the Sussexes' own headed paper.

The Duchess of Sussex's letter was sent, she claims, as an 'engaged citizen and a parent and as a mom' - but is being viewed as her most overtly political intervention in US life yet after speculation she has dreams of being a Democrat politician or even to run for US President.   .

The extraordinary 1,030-word letter to Pelosi and Schumer, both Democrats, is written on the Sussexes new post-royal letterhead, which prominently uses their titles but not their official cyphers.

Angela Levin, journalist and biographer of Prince Harry, told MailOnline that while the duchess is an American citizen, the letter from 'the office of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex' signed 'on behalf of my family, Archie and Lili and Harry', amounts to using her British title and marriage to the sixth in line to the throne to interfere in US politics. .

She said: 'Meghan's two page letter to lobby Congress about giving money on parental leave, is obviously another step towards trying to turn herself into a politician.

In addition if she was writing a profession letter what on earth is she getting all cosy and intimate by stating the letter is also 'on behalf of Archie and Lili - notice she is not calling her Lillibet, the Queen's nickname - and Harry.

Meghan says in her letter she 'grew up on the $4.99 salad bar at Sizzler' and meals at the 'The Old Spaghetti Factory' chain restaurants. She also details how she had to work at the local frozen yogurt shop from the age of 13 just to make ends meet and, when she was older, to fill up her car. .

The Duchess has suggested she had to struggle to make ends meet as a youngster and that $4.99 salads from Sizzler was one of her family's few options, but Twitter users pointed out many families don't have the money to eat out whatsoever, and sprang to the defense of the salad bar. .

Meghan is where she is because she married into the royal family.

Meghan Markle said she was writing the letter to House of Representatives speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate majority leader Charles Schumer 'as a mom' and 'on behalf of millions of American families'.

The letter was written and sent on headed paper from the couple's home in Montecito, California.

The USA may be among the wealthiest nations in the world, but it does not offer a government-led paid parental leave scheme in 2021. .

But in April, President Joe Biden proposed a £163billion package of worker benefits that would see paid parental leave brought in from 2023.

The letter pertains to historic legislation moving through Congress, which would make 12 weeks of paid family and sick leave available to most workers as part of new federal policy.

The US is among a handful of nations that do not guarantee paid sick leave or maternity or paternity pay. .

'And because you and your congressional colleagues have a role in shaping family outcomes for generations to come, that's why I'm writing to you at this deeply important time – as a mom – to advocate for paid leave.'.

The Duchess has suggested she had to struggle to make ends meet as a youngster and that $4.99 salads from Sizzler was one of her family's few options, but Twitter users pointed out many families don't have the money to eat out whatsoever, and sprang to the defense of the salad bar.

The former Suits actress, who signed off as 'Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex', concluded the letter, by writing: 'If we're going to create a new era of family-first policies, let's make sure that includes a strong paid leave program for every American that's guaranteed, accessible, and encouraged without stigma or penalty.

'So, on behalf of my family, Archie and Lili and Harry, I thank you for considering this letter, and on behalf of all families, I ask you to ensure this consequential moment is not lost.' .

'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 says.

'So, on behalf of my family, Archie and Lili and Harry, I thank you for considering this letter, and on behalf of all families, I ask you to ensure this consequential moment is not lost.'.

And because you and your congressional colleagues have a role in shaping family outcomes for generations to come, that's how I'm writing to you at this deeply important time - as a mom - to advocate for paid parental leave

No family should be faced with these decisions. 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). 

I'm writing to you on behalf millions of American families who are using their voices to say that comprehensive paid leave should not be a place to compromise or negotiate

And fewer than one in four workers has dedicated paid family leave through their employer

The families you represent need your strong leadership

So, on behalf of my family, Archie and Lili and Harry, I thank you for considering this letter, and on behalf of all families, I ask you to ensure this consequential moment is not lost
