Meghan Markle's 'ultimate ambition' while dating Prince Harry was to become US President, claims royal expert
This comes shortly after biographer Tom Bower claimed that the 39-year-old former actress could very well run office if she learns to 'take the heat'
After the Obamas, and the Biden administration explicitly expressed their support for Meghan Markle following her bombshell interview claims, insiders close to the former Duchess reveal her 'ultimate ambition' is to become a US President. Meghan had allegedly told a close friend about her future plans while she was still dating her husband, Prince Harry, revealed royal commentator Richard Eden in an interview with MailPlus.
This comes shortly after biographer Tom Bower claimed that the 39-year-old former actress could very well run office if she learns to 'take the heat'. Meghan stepped down from her role as a senior royal along with Harry, 36, in 2020. Ever since, the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex have bagged opportune deals in both entertainment and the corporate world to keep remain independent.
Speaking to Palace Confidential on MailPlus, Eden said: "A very good source said even after Meghan had started going out with Prince Harry she had said that her ultimate ambition was to be president. It seems to be increasingly likely and what a fascinating prospect it would be." Fellow royal commentator Victoria Murphy added: "It would be absolutely extraordinary if it did happen and totally unprecedented. I would never say never but I don't think this is something that is on the cards in the near future. Anyone I've spoken does seem to suggest that's the case.
Murphy also remarked: "What be interesting about it is one of the challenges for Harry and Meghan now is to be seen as other than the Royal Family. Everything that they do, their identities are shaped by the royal family and I do not see how that could ever not be the case. If she was to become President their legacy would be completely different."
Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams had already claimed that Meghan, still a US citizen, could have quite the political career. "Meghan is a very articulate activist," Fitzwilliams told the Daily Express. "She began activism when she was little, she's done a great deal over the years. What I strongly suspect and also Harry has been involved in several top charities. There's no doubt whatsoever that matters in future years could lead to Meghan having a political career or a career with a political dimension because she's an American citizen. We simply don't know. What we do know is the Netflix deal is very lucrative and will bring certain rewards. We also know that there is no question that they seem very happy in the US."
News of this comes after Meghan alleged racism within the royal family in her two-hour CBS special interview with Oprah Winfrey on March 7. The palace has since issued a statement noting there will be investigations into the same privately. Should the former Sussex royals not feel the palace's investigation or efforts are adequate enough, they could go on another tell-all with Oprah, or US TV presenter Gayle King, the latter claimed shortly after the interview aired. Meghan and Harry, who are living with their son Archie in Los Angeles, are pregnant with their second child, a girl.
