Meghan Markle may run as U.S. president if she wants to

Meghan Markle has the right to run as the United States president if she wants to do so someday.

The celebrity agent pal of Prince Harry’s wife said Meghan Markle is eligible to run as the country’s president for being born in the U.S. Jonathan Shalit believed it’s “not beyond the realm of possibility.”

The possibility of Meghan running for U.S. office

Shalit admitted he had never heard the former actress express her desire to be the U.S. president. However, he couldn’t help but compared her to Ronald Reagan, who was also an actor that became a president.

He served in the White House from 1981 to 1989.

“She’s American-born, she has every right to run for president,” he told Sunday Telegraph. “Ronald Reagan was a B-list actor who ended up in the White House. Never say never.”

Shalit continued the people’s perception of Prince Harry and Meghan in the U.S. was different from the United Kingdom.

“The U.K. has a love-hate relationship with the Sussexes, but it’s different in the States,” he revealed.

Meghan Markle, allegedly, eyed U.S. presidential seat

This is not the first time that someone said Meghan could run for the presidency. In July, a royal commentator revealed she had her eyes on the White House.

Beverly Turner told Jeremy Vine, via NZ Herald, she firmly believed the 39-year-old was “planning a run for the presidency.”

“She will run for President; I have no doubt about it,” she said. “I have no doubt; I think this is all part of the plan.”

However, Turner couldn’t give a timeline on when Meghan would plan to run for U.S. President.

“It may not be very soon, but it will be,” she continued.

To his surprise, Vine said it was the first time he heard someone say that about the Duchess of Sussex.

However, Turner insisted she “had it on fairly good authority” that Meghan would run.

“There may be worse Presidents; I would like to see a mixed-race woman in the White House, I would,” she added.

Meghan’s infamous speech

Rumors about Meghan’s plan to run as U.S. President came after delivering a speech during Girl Up’s Women in Leadership summit.

At the time, she encouraged all the young women to make world leaders, like New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, as their inspiration.

“Another thing about those lawmakers, leaders, and executives … – many of them better or worse, do not listen until they have to,” she said. “Because the status quo is easy to excuse and hard to break, but it will pull the tightest right before snapping.”

Some said this speech had something to do with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to leave the monarchy.
