Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, may have agreed to an interview with Oprah for political reasons.
Some senior Labour officials from the United Kingdom are claiming she has begun “networking” with not only the popular talk show host and other elites, but also American politicians (mostly Democrats).
According to the Daily Mail, Markle will use the furore over her interview with Oprah to launch a political career which could take her all the way to the White House, if rumors circulating around Westminster last week turn out to be accurate.
One senior Labour figure – a veteran of Tony Blair’s Downing Street administration with strong links to Washington – claimed to The Mail on Sunday that Ms Markle, 39, was networking among senior Democrats with a view to building a campaign and fundraising teams for a tilt at the US Presidency.
Both Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, and Markle launched verbal attacks against former President Donald Trump during the 2020 election cycle and oftentimes urged voters to “reject hate speech.” Trump was not shy about revealing his disdain for Markle, saying he was “not a fan” of hers.
Sources revealed to the Daily Mail that the Democratic, Internationalist and Blairite parties are “buzzing” with talk about Markle’s political aspirations, as well as her potential backers.
Experts on the U.S. Constitution say she would have to renounce her royal title if she had any hope of holding public office in the states.
Buckingham Palace tried to distance the Royal Family from the remarks made during the US election by issuing a statement saying that ‘the Duke is not a working member of the Royal Family’ and describing his comments as ‘made in a personal capacity’.
The source added that the presumption was that the Duchess was eyeing 2024, when President Joe Biden will be 82 and deciding whether he wants to run for a second term.
