Meghan Markle, 39, stepped down as a senior royal with Prince Harry, 36, to move to LA with their son Archie Harrison and become financially independent. The Duchess is said to have “her eyes on the US presidency”, according to Mr Scobie. It comes as Betfair slashed odds on the likelihood of Meghan running for President in 2024 from 66/1 to 20/1.

Speaking to True Royalty TV, Mr Scobie said: “She has her eyes set on the US presidency.

“Meghan is the embodiment of the American dream.

“One day we may see Meghan become president.”

Buckingham Palace has appeared to distance itself from comments made by the Duke of Sussex as Harry urged people in the US to “reject hate speech” and vote in the presidential elections.

Harry has faced a backlash amid claims of political interference and suggestions he is telling people to vote against Republican nominee President Donald Trump.

Asked about the Harry and Meghan intervention, Mr Trump replied: “I’m not a fan of hers. And she probably has heard that. But I wish a lot of luck to Harry, cause he’s going to need it.”

The Palace highlighted the fact that the Duke is no longer a working royal, and said his remarks were made in a “personal capacity”.

A Palace spokesman said: “We would not comment.

“The Duke is not a working member of the Royal Family and any comments he makes are made in a personal capacity.”

Harry remains sixth in line to the throne despite stepping down as a senior working royal, and members of the Royal Family traditionally do not vote or become involved in elections or political matters.

The Queen, as a constitutional Head of State, is politically neutral.

The monarch’s grandson said in a video for Time magazine as he sat on a bench alongside Meghan at their Californian home: “As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.”

Mr Trump, who is campaigning for re-election, has often been criticised for using inflammatory language, and in August, Facebook deleted one of his posts for the first time for violating its policy against spreading misinformation about coronavirus.

Mr Trump’s recent remarks about Meghan and Harry have sparked accusations of sexism and bullying from Sussex fans. 

One Twitter user wrote: “BOTH Harry and Meghan endorse Biden and he attacks only HER…this POS @realDonaldTrump is a sexist A*e.”

While another user said: “I found Meghan’s departure from the Royal Family tacky, selfish, and disrespectful to everyone.

“However, I will now count myself a defender. She certainly did not deserve Trump’s sexist rant.

“Trump hates everyone who doesn’t kowtow. He’s a stupid bully.”

Another Twitter user wrote: “Simply assuming that Meghan is the voice saying to vote for a Democrat is SO SEXIST!”
