Meghan Markle Has Ambitions of Running for Office in the U.S., New Vanity Fair Report Claims

A new report is claiming that Meghan Markle has political ambitions and would consider running for President of the United States one day.

The 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex and former Suits actress has always been politically involved, but she had to keep her opinions private after joining the royal family.

Members of the royal family are expected to remain neutral with their politics and her husband Prince Harry has never been publicly involved in the political world. Things changed for the couple this week when they encouraged U.S. citizens to vote in the upcoming presidential election.

“Every four years, we’re told the same thing, ‘This is the most important election of our lifetime.’ But this one is. When we vote, our values are put into action, and our voices are heard,” Meghan said in a Time 100 video. Harry added, “As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation, and online negativity.”

While the couple didn’t mention specific candidates in their video, it’s safe to assume that they don’t support President Trump, who just said some very negative things about Meghan.

Vanity Fair talked to a “close friend” of Meghan‘s and that source says that she has political ambitions.

“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,” the friend said. “I think if Meghan and Harry ever gave up their titles she would seriously consider running for president.”

The magazine also noted that “her representatives insist she has no plan to run for office.”
