Meghan Markle Cold Called Many Americans Encouraging Them To Vote

Meghan Markle has apparently been cold calling people around the country for months.

According to activist and icon Gloria Steinem, the 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex has been making it a point to encourage people to get out and vote in the upcoming elections.

“She has a stereotype hanging over her head, which is ‘princess,’” Gloria shared in a recent, virtual interview with Access Hollywood. “Meg is herself, smart, authentic, funny, political.”

She then opened up about one of Meghan‘s reasons for returning home to America – to vote.

“She came home to vote,” Gloria shared. “And the first thing we did, and why she came to see me… was we sat at the dining room table here, where I am right now, and cold-called voters. And said, ‘Hello, I’m Meg,’ and, ‘Hello, I’m Gloria,’ and, ‘Are you going to vote?’ And that was her initiative.”

Meghan and Gloria met earlier in the summer for a “backyard chat” in an initiative with the MAKERS Instagram account, where they discussed “representation, why each vote matters and how all women are linked, not ranked”.

When the election comes in November, Meghan will also be the first member of the British Royal Family to vote.
