Meghan Markle urges women to vote in fiery speech at Michelle Obama talk

Meghan Markle was filmed beaming with joy as she gave a video speech for Michelle Obama's "couch talk" to encourage women to vote in the upcoming US election.

The 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex looked thrilled as she joined a virtual panel of celebrities for Michelle Obama’s "When We All Vote" campaign.

Meghan, a former pal of US President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka, said that "this fight is worth fighting" during her speech – imploring women to vote for the "change we all need".

In the video, recorded from her £11 million Californa mansion, she said: "We vote to honour those who came before us and to protect those that come after us.

"That's what community is all about and that's specifically what this election is all about."

Noting that the election was just 75 days away, Meghan warned: "We all know what's at stake this year."

In a rallying cry to her female viewers, she said: "You’re just as mobilised and energised to see the change we all need and deserve and so I am inspired to see all the work that you are doing in your communities as well as for your communities."

Fans of the Duchess of Sussex said they were delighted she has been "set free" from the apolitical Royal Family and now has a platform to share her beliefs.

Commenting on the video on Twitter, one gushed: "It's good Meghan has been set free to do amazing works.

"Who needs a tiara, When Meghan is using her voice to get people to vote and change the world?"

A second wrote: "Wonderful to see her active and smiling again!"

"Yassss, our girl is moving in high circles," enthused another fan.

But a grumpy-sounding critic wrote: "Royal family should have stripped her title."

"Why you still calling her duchess when royals can't talk about politics," fumed another.

This comes after it emerged that Prince Harry might have to return to the UK because he is a "Brit abroad", according to a royal commentator.

The couple are also said to be keen to return to some of their charitable work in Britain.
