- Meghan Markle would reportedly “seriously consider” running for President in the United States.
- The royal family typically stay politically neutral, but Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry stepped down as senior royals and are no longer living in England, so….
Looks like Meghan Markle is considering getting involved in politics—and might even consider a future presidential run. According to a “close friend” of Meghan’s who spoke to Vanity Fair’s royal reporter Katie Nicholl, “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. I think if Meghan and Harry ever gave up their titles she would seriously consider running for president.”
However, Meghan has no plans to pursue a career in politics at the present moment, and a well-placed source who works with Meghan told Nicholl that “While there’s no denying she is interested and engaged in politics as a topic, she harbors no ambition to enter a career in politics herself.”
Meghan recently spoke out about the importance of voting in ABC’s TIME 100 special, saying “Every four years, we’re told the same thing, ‘This is the most important election of our lifetime.’ But this one is. When we vote, our values are put into action, and our voices are heard.”
Royals are expected to stay quiet about politics, but, ahem, Meghan and Harry aren’t in England anymore. Using their platform to encourage people to vote only seems like it could be a positive thing, and I, for one, am excited to see Meghan get more involved in politics—presidential run, or not.
