Meghan Markle fans claim she narrated anti-Trump advert before election

MEGHAN Markle fans have sparked online debate by claiming she narrated an anti-Trump video – which many believe would have shattered royal protocol, The Sun can reveal. 

The Duchess of Sussex, who has come under fire for wading into politics since stepping down with Prince Harry as a senior royal, has been linked to an ad for Republican anti-Trump group, The Lincoln Project. 

The political video, titled The Girl In The Mirror, was published before the election and targeted mothers who were yet to cast their votes, featuring clips of Trump tearing down women during public appearances. 

When asked directly if the Duchess, 39, narrated the video, a spokeswoman for The Lincoln Project told The Sun: "The voice over actress in question wishes to remain anonymous."

Although there is no confirmation that Meghan did the voice over, dozens of Twitter users, along with fan blog Royal Analysis, have speculated she is the mystery actress behind the project.

The blog author wrote: "I was scrolling through my royal-heavy feed when Twitter user nancylee posted this video.

"The caption: 'Is this Meghan narrating a video against [sic] President Trump??' Listen to the voice in the video."

The Sun has reached out to Meghan's rep for comment.

In the powerful ad, the narrator tells viewers: "Imagine a young girl looking in the mirror, searching for role models in the world to give her hope that she too can one day make a difference. 

"Now imagine how she feels when she watches women being verbally attacked,” as video footage is played of Trump telling a female reporter at a press conference: "I watch you a lot. You ask a lot of stupid questions."

The actress goes on: "Maligned, belittled, harassed, insulted,” as audio is played of the President describing senator Kamala Harris as a “monster” following a debate. 

"Your daughters are listening and absorbing that message, right in front of your eyes,” the narrator adds in the video.

"Now imagine a different future for her, a future with a President who doesn't just value a female voice, but chooses one to be his right hand woman.

"A strong woman, a woman with compassion, a woman not afraid to take on a bully."

She then adds: "Imagine that little girl in the mirror, because that little girl is yours. And your actions on November 3 will define who she sees. Vote for change. Vote for her."

Despite stepping back from their senior roles, Meghan and Harry are still members of the royal family and experts say they are to remain politically neutral.

It is believed to be against protocol for them to discuss politics in public. 

Twitter users have taken aim at Meghan, with one tweeting directly to the Lincoln Project’s official account: "How much did the @ProjectLincoln pay Meghan Markle for her election interference? 

"As a titled member of the royal family SHE is not allowed to engage in political ads or campaign, for any candidate."

Another blasted: "Is Meghan Markle, aka the Duchess of Sussex, doing a voiceover for this political commercial endorsing Biden for president? This is NOT ACCEPTABLE!!"

While a third wrote on the social media site: "@ProjectLincoln Isn't this Meghan Markle? 

"If so doesn't that cross some sort of line for the British Royal Family? thought it was interesting you seem to be deleting it."

They added: "Please clarify bc you have a lot of "hollywood" narrators and I am sure people would like to know."

Meghan and Harry, who relocated to Los Angeles earlier this year, have faced criticism for getting political, while the Duchess became the first ever royal to vote. 

In a statement, Buckingham Palace previously claimed the couple would "uphold the values of her Majesty" during their new chapter.

"With The Queen’s blessing, the Sussexes will continue to maintain their private patronages and associations," they said. 

"While they can no longer formally represent The Queen, the Sussexes have made clear that everything they do will continue to uphold the values of Her Majesty."

The Lincoln Project video, which is one minute and 30 seconds long, has now been viewed more than 943,000 times on the group's official YouTube account.

A bio on their site reads: "Constantly bombarded by Donald Trump’s demeaning, misogynistic rhetoric, young girls have spent the last four years witnessing the leader of the free world suffer no consequences for his mistreatment of strong women. It’s time to put an end to this behavior."

Sarah Lenti, Executive Director of the Lincoln Project, also said: "Being an intelligent, strong woman is not a partisan endeavor. 

"As a nation, we’ve been blessed to have amazing women as role models in both parties, but only ever one President who treats our gender writ large with such disdain. 

"It's time for a President who celebrates the perspective women have to offer, and who acknowledges their inherent worth, skill, and place in our government."

Meanwhile, Prince Harry's close relationship with the newly-elected US President Joe Biden's wife has been revealed this week.

Dr Jill Biden, 69, struck up a friendship with the Duke during his tour of the US in 2013. 

Harry also sat next to the Bidens as they watched the wheelchair basketball event at the 2016 games in Orlando, with Biden joking at the time: "Jill went to London for the last Games. 

"She spent too much damn time with Prince Harry!"

The Bidens also attended the 2017 Canadian games, where Harry stepped out with Meghan Markle for the first time, sitting with the pair for numerous events.

Meghan, who appeared in legal drama Suits before meeting the Duke, previously narrated the Disney nature documentary Elephant.

Her husband was also caught on camera touting her voice over skills to former CEO Bob Iger during the London premiere of the Lion King in July last year.

Video shows the 36-year-old royal pointing to his wife and saying in hushed tones: "You do know she does voiceovers?"

Mr Iger, looking surprised, replies: "Ah, I did not know that", before Harry continues "You seem surprised, she's really interested".

The Disney bigwig then allegedly said: "We'd love to try. That's a great idea."
