MEGHAN Markle is giving “punchier” speeches now that she is no longer bound by the “constraints” of Royals, an expert has claimed.
Omid Scobie – who is the co-author of the upcoming Prince Harry and Meghan Markle biography Finding Freedom – said the Duchess is able to speak “from the heart” since stepping down as a senior member of the Royal Family.
Referencing Meghan's speech of female empowerment at the Girl Up Summit last week on the Heirpod podcast, Omid said: “This was Meghan really being able to talk without the constraints of some of the things you might have to bear in mind when writing a speech as a working member of the royal family.
“I understand she spent a long time preparing for this speech. Usually we see members of the royal family reading from very tight scripts when they go up onto a stage, I understand Meghan had bullet points.”
Describing how the Duchess was "perhaps a little punchier than we've seen in the past", Omid added: "She spoke more from the heart than from a script."
During the speech, Meghan accused world leaders of not listening to young people fighting against climate change and racial injustice.
Claiming that “don’t listen until they have to”, Meghan told viewers: “Keep challenging, keep pushing, make them a little uncomfortable. Don’t be afraid to do what you know is right even when it’s not popular.”
In the future, Omid says royal fans can expect to see more 'punchy' speeches on subjects such as gender equity, racial injustice, youth empowerment.
After speaking to Meghan's team, Omid added: "This worked a really great preview for the Duchess of Sussex and some of her future speaking engagements."
Off the back of her Girl Up speech, Meghan Markle has become the most sought-after public speaker in the world according to experts.
Meghan’s speech has so far been viewed over 100,000 times, making it the most popular at the summit, ahead of Michelle Obama, currently on 30,000 and Hillary Clinton on 7,000 views.
Last month, Meghan spoke out about George Floyd's death and said 'his life mattered' in a heartfelt video message against racism.
