Meghan Markle is, allegedly, planning to face off with Kanye West in the 2024 elections.
According to New Idea, Meghan Markle will also have a showdown with Kim Kardashian, who will be playing a key role in West’s campaign. However, no concrete pieces of evidence can confirm that these hearsays are correct as of this writing.
Meghan Markle allegedly biding her time before making an announcement
But the tabloid insisted that Markle is biding her time before she announces her plans to run for office. Even without an official announcement, a source said that Markle is ready to lock horns with West.
“Meghan is eyeing a run in 2024, and the last thing she wants is to be up against someone like Kanye and Kim, who would steal her thunder in the glamour stakes,” an unnamed source said, as per New Idea.
The Duchess of Sussex is allegedly watching the political scene
Before Prince Harry’s wife makes her move, Markle is, allegedly, watching the political scene like a hawk. She’s also figuring out the best strategy that could ensure her big win.
“The worst scenario for her is going head-to-head with a celebrity and she sees Kim as a genuine rival because of her wealth and popularity. They’re two fiery, competitive characters so expect some major fireworks,” the source said.
However, one should take the claims made by the tabloid with a grain of salt.
Unless Meghan Markle directly says that she will run for president, everything that’s written about her possible campaign is merely based on hearsay.
More Meghan Markle for president rumors
New Idea isn’t the source claiming that Markle will run for president in 2024. Last month, royal author Lady Colin Campbell claimed that the Duchess of Sussex has presidential aspirations.
“I know the Duchess of Sussex has political ambitions and I’ve been told that one day she wants to run for President. I think everything she is doing, leaving the Royal Family and moving back to California is part of her plan and she has taken Harry along with her,” she told Daily Mail.
In May, Woman’s Day claimed that Markle is running for president with George Clooney’s help. The Ocean’s Eleven actor, as well as Oprah Winfrey, allegedly, serve as Markle’s political advisers.
“Sure, a duchess going for commander-in-chief sounds weird, but is it any weirder than a reality show contestant like Donald Trump being president?” a source said.
However, it is unlikely for Clooney and Winfrey to serve as political advisers for Meghan Markle. After all, they haven’t run for office even though there have also been rumors that they will campaign.
