The friend told Vanity Fair: “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, a so-called “well-placed source” denied the rumours.

They told the publication: “While there’s no denying she is interested and engaged in politics as a topic, she harbours no ambition to enter a career in politics herself.”

Duchess told to tone down political views

Meghan has previously voiced her dislike of President Trump and was advised to tone down her political activism and views upon marrying Harry.

At the time, she said in an interview: “I know what it’s like to have a voice. And also what it’s like to feel voiceless.”

Omid Scoobie, co-writer of the book Finding Freedom, has also weighed in on the news.

“She has her eyes set on the US presidency,” he said.

“Meghan is the embodiment of the American dream. One day we may see Meghan become president.”
