The World Cup match between England and the US national team attracts strong attention because of the importance it represents, particularly for the USMNTas their qualification to the next stage depends on achieving a good result against the English power.
However, there are celebrities who do not have it so easy when it comes to supporting one team or anotheras in the case of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.
Prince Harry’s wife will have a divided heart for Friday’s match between the two teams, as she will have two support both equallyso it would not be unreasonable to say that perhaps what suits her is a draw between the two.
Why would she support the United States?
While soccer is not a sport that is a tradition in the United States, in recent decades it is has grown significantly and several celebrities often follow MLS matches, and now support will be important for the USMNT against England.
Meghan will partially support the American team for a simple reason: her blood is Californian. It should be remembered that Meghan was born on August 4, 1981 in Los Angelesperhaps one of the cities in the US where soccer has been practiced for years thanks to the great Latino influence that exists in that area of California.
Meghan, in fact, is more American than the Stars and Stripeswhich is why it is not to be doubted that on Friday she will be supporting the team of her native countryeven if by appearances she has to do it against the rival.
Supporting England out of commitment?
On the other hand, Meghan is the wife of Prince Harryand therefore a member of the British royal family, and more so with the title of Duchess of Sussex. Since marrying Harry, Meghan has been heavily criticized in the British press for her skin color, her heritage and for being an American.
But she has also had two keep her manners and protocol and behave as a duchess, trying to be impeccable, to try to please the English, who have soccer almost like a religion. So, it would look very bad for an English duchess not to support the English team in their game against the Americans.
Although after everything that has happened to her and Harry in the last few months, it may be something she could care less about.
