Prince Harry may become the First Gentleman of the United States if he gives up his royal titles and his wife, Meghan Markle, runs for the presidency.
Rumors have it Meghan Markle is “seriously” considering running for president. If this happens, Prince Harry may have a royal role in the U.S.
The possibility of Meghan running for president
A source told Vanity Fair the Duchess of Sussex didn’t give up her American citizenship “to go into politics.”
“I think if Meghan and Harry ever gave up their titles, she would seriously consider running for President,” the insider explained.
Betfair spokesman Sam Rosbottom weighed in on the possibility of it.
“A year ago, it would have been virtually impossible for Meghan to run for President,” he told Mirror Online. “But since dropping her royal duties in January, odds have plummeted to 20/1.”
If the rumors come to fruition, there’s a strong possibility Americans will see Meghan’s name on the ballot in 2024.
The controversial remark about U.S. politics
The Sussexes are in hot water due to their involvement in the upcoming presidential election.
The two made a video message to ask the American voters to “reject hate speech, misinformation, and online negativity.”
Meghan said this year’s election would be “the most important election of the lifetime.”
She seemed to suggest the country needed its new leader now more than ever.
“When we vote, our values are put into action, and our voices are heard,” she said.
“When one person buys into negativity online, the effects are felt exponentially,” Prince Harry added. “It’s time to not only reflect but act.”
