The unidentified congressman said: “This is just another attempt by the ex-royals to insert their British drama into American politics. I don’t think anyone on this side of the pond will cares about Meghan Markle’s opinion on killing babies.” Speaking to the Daily Mail, he added: “However, I think his bid for the presidency would be a great episode for The Crown.”
It came after Meghan spoke out against the overturning of Roe v Wade by the US Supreme Court.
Abortion was legalized in the United States in 1973 after a landmark Supreme Court decision, known as Roe v. Wade, but that was canceled last month.
As many as 26 conservative US states are now expected to introduce new abortion restrictions or bans.
So far, abortion is now illegal or heavily restricted in at least 11 states following the ruling.
Twelve other states have laws in place that pave the way for a quick ban or severe restriction of their access.
Meghan said the ruling tells women their “physical safety doesn’t matter”.
In conversation with feminist activist Gloria Steinem for Vogue magazine, Meghan said: “It has a very real impact on women’s bodies and lives from now on.
“Women are already sharing stories of how their physical safety is at risk.

“It tells us that our physical safety doesn’t matter, and therefore we don’t matter. But we do. Women matter.”
There are fears that the number of illegal abortions will increase in the United States as a result of the ruling.
Meghan called on people to “channel” their fear and anger over the decision into “something that makes a difference”.
Speaking ahead of the midterm elections in November, she said: “When you have anger, you have to channel that energy into something that makes a difference.
“That’s what activism is. It’s about how we present ourselves.
“It looks like the tip of the iceberg and is part of why people are so scared.
“We have to channel that fear into action. We can start this November halfway through.
“I know hearing this sounds so repetitive, but we have to vote, every time, from local elections to state and national elections.”
