Meghan Markle ‘secretly networking in bid to run for US president in 2024’

Meghan Markle may be in the running for the 2024 presidential candidacy if Joe Biden doesn’t want to serve for a second term, a source has suggested.

Prince Harry’s wife is an eloquent speaker and her philanthropy work has sparked rumours the Duchess of Sussex may some day run for president of the United States.

A senior source told the Mail On Sunday the Democratic party is “buzzing” about Meghan’s potential political career.

She also reportedly has "ambitions" in the field, the source said, as well as "potential backers" already.

Meghan and Harry first dipped their toes into politics during the 2020 presidential election which saw Joe Biden beat out Donald Trump to the top spot.

The Duchess urged voters to "reject hate speech", seen as a direct criticism of Trump.

Her comment led to the sitting president at the time to claim he was "not a fan" of Meghan.

Biden and his Vice President, Kamala Harris, the first woman ever to hold a position of such seniority within the United States government, began their term in January.

If Meghan were to run, and win, the soon-to-be mum-of-two would be the first ever woman president.

It is rumoured Meghan refused to give up her U.S. citizenship when she married Prince Harry to keep open the option of entering US politics.

US constitutional experts say she would have to renounce her title if she wanted to hold public office because it would conflict with the US oath of allegiance.

The source added it was assumed she was looking to run in 2024, when President Joe Biden will be 82 and deciding whether he wants to run for a second term.
