Since joining the royal family, the former actress has dedicated her time largely to charity and advocacy work and has now set her sights on paid leave for parents.

"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.".

Meghan Markle sent a letter to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to advocate for paid leave, for parents and mothers in particular.

The sacrifice of either comes at a great cost," Markle insisted.

"No family should be faced with these decisions," Markle insisted.

"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).".

The royal then likened taking care of a child to taking "care of your community" and taking "care of your country.".

"… Because when paid leave is a right, we’re creating a foundation that helps address mental health outcomes, health care costs, and economic strength at the starting line," she continued.

Furthermore, she said the letter was written "on behalf of millions of American families" and cited other countries' "robust" paid leave programs, such as Estonia's, which she said "offers over a year and a half of leave to be shared by new parents."

Markle insisted that "paid leave should be a national write rather than a patchwork option limited to those whose employers have policies in place, or those who live in one of the few states where a leave program exists" and added that "a new era of family first policies" ought to include "a strong paid leave program for every American that’s guaranteed, accessible, and encouraged without stigma or penalty."
