Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter revealed she thinks that Meghan Markle would be more influential with her charity work rather than enter politics despite being vocal about political issues and voting. Reports from the Mail on Sunday suggest that Meghan is eying up running for president in 2024 if Joe Biden does not stand for a second-term after a Labour source revealed she is having conversations with senior Democrats. Ms Arbiter said the Duchess of Sussex is unlikely to do anything in the short-term but Meghan’s relatively young age, when compared to other politicians, means a career in politics is on the cards after a few years. 

Speaking to 7News Australia, Ms Arbiter was asked what she thought about Meghan potentially entering politics.

She said: “In the short-term, I think this is highly unlikely, Meghan has made no secret of her interest in politics. 

“Last year she did use her platform to encourage people to use their rights to vote, she’s spoken about social justice, racial justice. 

“She’s also promoted equality for women. 

“But I think that she’s going to be able to achieve far more through her charitable foundation than she is through the medium of politics. 

“That being said, Joe Biden is 78, Meghan is only 39 so when we look to the long-term future, never say never.”

Ms Arbiter also explained that Meghan may want to drop her title voluntarily if she ran for president so there would be no conflict of interest. 

A report from the Mail on Sunday revealed Meghan Markle has been networking with senior Democrat politicians to establish her own campaign team. 

The claim was revealed by a Labour source who has close ties to Washington and was a senior figure during Tony Blair’s premiership. 

Meghan Markle would 'lose title' in Presidency run says expert

While it may appear far-fetched, politician George Galloway did not dismiss the claims stating that Meghan has a much larger platform than Trump when he started out. 

Former President Trump also reacted to the claims and said he would run again in 2024 if Meghan was a candidate. 

Trump has been vocal about his dislike of Meghan and said Prince Harry would need a lot of luck being married to her. 

It comes as the Royal Family continue to reel from the ground-breaking Oprah Winfrey interview which has cast the world’s eye onto the institution.
