Meghan Markle reportedly planning 2024 run for President, says anonymous Democratic official

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is reportedly planning on a 2024 run for president, and is working with top Democrats to do so.

On Monday, Meghan Markle made her way into the public spotlight once again as she hinted at a 2024 run for president of the United States. Markle, who made waves for her interview with Oprah this past week, is eyeing a slot in the presidential run. The Daily Mail reported on this, citing an unnamed British Labor Party official. The anonymous official reports, “The Blairite, internationalist and Democratic party networks are buzzing with talk about Meghan’s political ambitions and potential backers.” 

Markle’s team first took a shot at the executive branch last year, when they slammed Donald Trump in an ‘anti-hate speech’ retort. The former U.S. president fired back at Markle, saying that he was “not a fan” of the British Duchess.

Markle is allegedly planning her run in case President Joe Biden decides not to run for a second term in four years. Biden will be 82 in four years time, which has Markle and many others questioning whether or not he will decide to run again. Her biographer and long-time friend, Omid Scobie, says Markle “has her eyes on the U.S. presidency”. Scobie, who wrote the book “Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family” continues, citing, “Meghan is the embodiment of the American dream. One day we may see Meghan become president.” The New York Post wrote on this, as well. An unnamed friend of Markle’s reportedly told Vanity Fair that the duchess “would seriously consider running for president”. The paper continued, saying, “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 unidentified friend told the mag of Markle’s brief time in the UK.”

According to the New York Post, Andrew Morton, author of “Meghan: A Hollywood Princess,” told Vanity Fair last year,“I would state categorically that she has no chance of ever running for president. She would be eaten alive.” This comes just a week after Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, where she disclosed alleged racism her and her family has faced. The Daily Wire reports on this, citing, “The duchess said that when she was pregnant with their son Archie, unnamed royals expressed “concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he was born.” Meghan is biracial, with a white father and black mother.” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s approval rating has nosedived since their bombshell interview.
