Meghan and Prince Harry have recently become increasingly vocal about the upcoming US election as they urge Americans to vote. The revelation of Meghan’s potential plan was made by a source close to the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex to royal author Katie Nicholl.
The insider said: “One of the reasons she was so keen not to give up her American citizenship was so she had the option to go into politics.
“I think if Meghan and Harry ever gave up their titles she would seriously consider running for president.”
But those working alongside Meghan have denied the claims that she seriously intends to get involved in politics.
According to Vanity Fair, one source said: “While there’s no denying she is interested and engaged in politics as a topic, she harbours no ambition to enter a career in politics herself.”
Earlier this month, a celebrity agent who knows Meghan said it would not be “beyond the realm of possibility” for her to run for president.
Jonathan Shalit told the Sunday Telegraph: “She’s American-born, she has every right to run for president.
“Ronald Reagan was a B-list actor who ended up in the White House. Never say never.”
Mr Shalit added: “The UK has a love-hate relationship with the Sussexes, but it’s different in the States.
“With that issue out of the way, Meghan encouraging people to vote is something that would be praised, not criticised.”
Good Morning Britain presenter, Piers Morgan, has also recently hit out at the couple, accusing them of “expressing themselves in such a brazenly partisan manner”.
He added that the coupled have “crossed a massive line which should now have serious consequences for the couple who specialise in wanting their royal cake and the freedom to eat it”.
Mr Morgan continued: “The Royals don’t do politics. Not publicly, anyway.”
