Meghan Markle running for the US presidency has been linked to the Duchess of Sussex refusal to give up her US citizenship after being married to Prince Harry, critics have claimed in a new publication.
Neither Meghan Markle nor Prince Harry said they would run for the US presidency, although the Duke spoke about the US November presidential election urging Americans to “reject hate speech, misinformation, and online negativity”.
Meghan was in the American showbiz before her love affairs with Harry and there’s a history of people with a background in showbiz joing US politics, like President Donald Trump, a businessman, and Ronald Reagan, President from 1981-1989, originally had a career as an actor, the Duchess hasn’t hinted on such intentions yet.
Sam Rosbottom a Betfair spokesman told the Mirror, “A year ago, it would have been virtually impossible for Meghan to run for President, but since dropping her royal duties in January odds have plummeted to 20/1. With sources claiming she is ‘seriously’ considering a move into politics, it looks more and more likely we could see her name on the ballot in 2024.”
Sources claimed that the idea of Meghan seriously considering running for the US election was made by one of her associates who spoke to Vanity Fair saying, “One reason 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.”
However, Meghan Markle refused to surrender her US citizenship after marrying Prince Harry in May 2018, and immediately applied for a British citizenship but it has stalled since Meghan and Harry stopped acting as senior Royals.
Prince Harry earlier this week advised Americans to reject hate speech whilst on a show that was aimed at honouring Time magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people.
He said, “As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity. When the bad outweighs the good, for many, whether we realise it or not, it erodes our ability to have compassion and our ability to put ourself in someone else’s shoes. Because when one person buys into negativity online, the effects are felt exponentially. It’s time to not only reflect but act.”
Meghan also spoke describing the forthcoming US presidential election as, “the most important election of our lifetime. When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard,” she said.
