Meghan Markle news – Duchess will use 'high-profile connections to run for PRESIDENT' and 'fuel her political dreams'

MEGHAN Markle secretly plotted to marry Prince Harry to further her career, a royal expert has claimed.

The "ambitious" Duchess was "well aware" of what snaring Harry would do for her career – including a potential career in politics, royal commentator Jonathan Sacerdoti claims.

"She grew up with high ambitions and started to reach them as an actress – putting in the work, obviously not a terribly successful actress in terms of being well known internationally," he told Sky News.

"She then married Prince Harry and then she has become probably one of the most known or recognisable names in the world just by marrying somebody…that shows an enormous amount of planning and ambition.

"I don't mean to be totally unromantic – maybe she did fall in love with Harry, maybe their relationship is also one of partnership and love in that respect.

“But you don't marry into the Royal Family, I think, without knowing what it's going to do to your reputation and your exposure internationally.

    POLITICAL AMBITION

    These steps could lead to her running for the US presidency, Bower said.

    "At the end of ten years, the prime of a politician’s life, her record could well justify a bid for the Democrat nomination for the presidency," he wrote.

    "To get that prize will require a lot of learning, endless travel and an iron constitution to survive exhausting political ­meetings and defeat the critics.

    "Meghan certainly has the guts and self-belief to fight to the top of the greasy pole. The question is whether she has the stamina."

    It comes as Meghan is reportedly hiring Oprah Winfrey's party planner for her 40th birthday bash which will host 65 and not break Covid rules.

    The Duchess of Sussex has reportedly tasked Colin Cowie with planning the milestone birthday at her and Harry's £11million mansion in Santa Barbara, California.

    TOM BOWER: MEGHAN COULD USE HIGH PROFILE CONNECTIONS TO FUEL POLITICAL DREAMS

    He said Meghan could use her high-profile connections to fuel her political dreams.

    "With the support of Democrat godfathers the Clintons and the Obamas, Meghan should have little difficulty getting ­nominated as one of the state’s 40 Congressmen sent to Washington," Bower wrote.

    "If Californians flock to her ­Crusade for Goodness, then after two terms — just four years — she can establish her political roots. After that, fate would take over.

    "If one of the state’s two Senate seats comes free and she has ­mastered the trade, a mixed-race woman should be a strong runner.

    "She could also run for the state’s governorship, one of ­America’s most prestigious offices."

    ORLANDO BLOOM SAID HE WAS ‘NERVOUS’ ABOUT VOICING PRINCE HARRY

    HBO Max has released the trailer for their cheeky new cartoon series based on the Royal Family.

    And voicing the character of Prince Harry is British actor Orlando Bloom – who happens to live in the same exclusive neighbourhood as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

    When it was announced that he would be joining the cast in August 2020, Orlando admitted to the Hollywood Reporter that it made him “nervous” .

    ROYAL AIDES COULD LAUNCH LEGAL ACTION AGAINST MEGHAN AND HARRY

    Royal aides could launch legal action against Meghan Markle and Prince Harry if the Duke’s forthcoming memoir is inaccurate, a source has claimed.

    Last week Harry announced he would be releasing a memoir next year – as Her Majesty celebrates 70 years of service – in which he will recount “experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons”.

    A small band of staffers who worked for the Duke and Duchess are now said to be concerned that the book could promote a false narrative of how they were treated while living in the UK, reports Mail Online.

    MEGHAN MARKLE COULD RUN FOR US PRESIDENT WITHIN THE NEXT TEN YEARS WITH BACKING OF CLINTONS & OBAMAS, SAYS BIOGRAPHER

    MEGHAN Markle could run for president in the United States within the next 10 years, according to a biographer.

    Ahead of Meghan's 40th birthday on Wednesday, Tom Bower said she is "convinced her destiny will soar towards greater fame and fortune".

    Looking ahead to life after she turns 40, Bower wrote: "And what about the next 40 years? Once Harry has finished promoting his books, will Meghan launch her own global campaign to engage in the swirling muck of American politics?

    "Just as she seduced the Royal Family, will she tempt California’s power brokers to promote her own political ambitions to the Senate and possibly beyond, via her friendship with America’s vice-president Kamala Harris and the Obamas?

    "Although her political rhetoric is skeletal and her skin is thin to ­criticism, surely that is the next step on her Crusade for ­Goodness."

    HER HEART FOR A COMPASS: A NOVEL

    The Duchess of York has spoken to promote her novel – Her Heart for a Compass: A Novel.

    Speaking exclusively to The Sun, she told how the novel gave her a chance to delve into her past and address her younger, troubled self.

    The 61-year-old said: “I would tell the young Sarah to always be herself, to have belief in herself and to seek help much earlier on when it came to insecurity and issues with mental health and eating disorders.

    “I wish somebody had taken me in hand and helped me with all that.”

    Sarah’s new novel is set in Victorian England and follows the rebellious Margaret (which is Fergie’s own middle name) as she is engaged to a haughty earl.

    ROYAL COMMENTATOR SAYS PORTRAYAL OF PHILIP IN HBO’S THE PRINCE ‘UNPLEASANT’

    Meghan is portrayed in the show as a gold-digger. Meanwhile, Prince William is shown being carried by a flunky to the toilet.

    Royal commentator Phil Dampier said the portrayal of Philip is particularly “unpleasant”.

    “That’s clearly quite sick in my opinion and a very unfair thing to do, and similarly picking on the children is over the top,” he said.

    “There’s a thin line between having fun and being gratuitously cruel and unpleasant.”

    However, he said perhaps there may be some truth in the depictions of Meghan and Harry – arguing the Duke’s “behaviour over the past year or two reinforces that”.

    “Funnily enough, it may be one of the few things the series has right in terms of its characters,” he said.

    ‘EXPERIENCES, ADVENTURES, LOSSES AND LIFE LESSONS’

    For his memoir, Harry is collaborating with celebrated ghostwriter JR Moehringer, who has written memoirs for tennis legend Andre Agassi and Nike co-founder Phil Knight.

    It has been described as the “definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him”.

    Buckingham Palace has allegedly been warned they “should be afraid” of what’s to come from it.

    DR MOS-SHOGBAMIMU CALLS HBO ANIMATED SERIES ‘NOT NECESSARY BEHAVIOUR’

    Meanwhile, Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, who previously argued with Piers Morgan over his mocking of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, hit out at the show on Good Morning Britain today.

    “Children will watch this because adults in their family will be watching it, so George would be hearing about it,” she said.

    “It is not acceptable behaviour, it’s not necessary behaviour.

    “If you want to poke fun at the Royal Family there are enough adults who have made mistakes. Poke fun at them.”

    PRINCE HARRY’S BOOK DEAL COULD UPSET PRINCE CHARLES’ ASCENSION TO THE THRONE

    THE royal family have “very real fears” that Prince Harry’s book deal could destabilise the Monarchy and upset his father's ascension to the throne, according to a source.

    Harry, 36, is set to publish his explosive memoir in four books which he vows will examine the "highs and lows" of his extraordinary life. The book will be put out during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee next year.

    But the second of those books is due out only after the Queen has died – which is causing fears within the firm that this could hinder the transition of power to Prince Charles.

    A source told MailOnline that there is “anger and disappointment” within the palace and that the Queen is facing anxiety over the books contents.

    They said that senior Palace officals made the decision not to respond publicly to the Duke of Sussex’s announcement because they feared it would “fan the flames” of his already strained relationship with Prince Charles.

    ‘HYPOCRITICAL’

    Friends of the duke could be prepared to retaliate by revealing their own secrets about Harry after years of refusing to gossip about him to the media.

    A pal said: “It feels very hypocritical given Harry chucked people out of his friendship group for talking to the press.

    “There is a fear that he’s going to reveal details of his hedonistic youth which some worry will play havoc with their careers and personal lives.”

    A royal insider told the website:  “Harry and Meghan’s former staff members are convinced that this book is being written to settle scores and will likely include a lot of detail about their time within the Royal Family.

    “Based on the Oprah Winfrey interview, some of these ex-workers simply do not trust that a full and accurate picture will be presented.

    “Conversations have already started about what steps they might be able to take to protect their own reputation and that of the monarchy post-publication.”

    UNHAPPY MEMORIES

    But diving into her family’s past has dredged up unhappy memories from her childhood.

    In particular, she told how abuse and abandonment at the hands of her mother caused mental health and eating issues.

    Sarah’s well-documented battle with her weight and binge-eating led to the unflattering nickname, the Duchess of Pork.

    Sarah said: “I think when you are abandoned by your mother, who left when I was 12, you start believing that you are not worthy of love.

    “That then manifests itself as deep insecurity, mental health problems and issues around eating properly.

    “I went through a form of self-sabotage and it took me a long time to work through all these issues.”

    Sarah Ferguson has defended Meghan Markle and Prince Harry saying “there should be no judgement of race”.

    The Duchess of York, who is the ex-wife of Prince Andrew jumped to their defence, saying: “There should be no judgement on race, creed, color or any other denomination.

    “I wish Harry and Meghan so much happiness. 

    “I know Diana would be so proud of her sons and their wives.”

    HARRY'S MEMOIR

    Meanwhile, royal courtiers are reportedly braced for a string of bombshell allegations in the Duke of Sussex's book, which is due to be published next year.

    A royal source told Mail Online: “These are, on the whole, very good people who wanted the best for Harry and Meghan.

    “But many of the secrets they know are explosive and would blow up much of the victim narrative so carefully crafted by those two.

    “For example, some of these staff members were aware of commercial conversations that were going on when they were still full-time royals – they were clearing the way to make millions long before Megxit was revealed.

    “The way they tried to publicly discredit staff who they took against has been particularly distasteful and left a bad taste in the mouth of many courtiers past and present.

    “All options have to stay on the table because we are in unprecedented times. There is literally no precedent for this situation.”

    SECRET DEALS

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry forced royal aides to keep their commercial deals a secret, a source has claimed.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex used mega-deals with Netflix and Spotify – with a combined win of £130million – to pave the way for their new lives in Los Angeles.

    The pair were reportedly in discussion with the streaming giants in 2018, while Meghan and Prince Harry were still living in Kensington Palace but the pair didn't announce their decision to leave the UK until January 2020.

    Now it has been revealed that the couple forced royal staff to keep quiet about the deals, among other things, until they crossed the pond.
