Meghan Markle Should Absolutely Not Run for President

Would she be good at the job? Maybe. But the campaign would be a political nightmare...

This week author Tom Bower — who reportedly signed a six-figure book deal to write an unauthorized biography of Meghan Markle — spoke to British tabloid Closer about the Duchess' prospects in American politics.

While her husband Prince Harry would have to get his American citizenship to pursue political office — and could never be eligible for the presidency — as a natural-born American citizen, there would technically be nothing stopping Markle from running for any office, up to and including commander-in-chief. And Bower suspects that's exactly "where she sees herself going."

Prince Harry

Former Prince Harry is living one version of the American dream: He's moved to California and inked a podcast deal.

He's also now stepped into perhaps the ultimate American dream role as "chief impact officer" of the mental health startup BetterUp. The company provides mobile-based mental health services to the masses.

Piers Morgan Just Canceled Himself Over the Meghan Markle Scandal

The professional blowhard has announced that he's leaving Good Morning Britain.

Piers Morgan has referred to cancel culture as "one of the very worst things about modern society."

And that heightened, hair-trigger sensitivity to criticism might explain how he sensed what was coming down the pipeline. Because an earlier version of this article was going to announce his official induction into the Cancelation Hall of Infamy, AKA the Cancel Canon, from which no career shall ever be revived (except Mel Gibson...and Alec Baldwin...and most of the other people who have supposedly been "canceled").

Will Meghan Markle Be the End of the Royal Family as We Know It?

In a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey set to drop this weekend, Meghan Markle speaks out against the royal family.

It's no secret that being a part of the British royal family comes with its fair share of difficulties.

Once the most powerful family in the world, the Windsors now function primarily as figureheads who represent a bygone era of British global sovereignty. But that doesn't mean the world is any less fascinated by them. Royal weddings are routinely some of the most viewed television events worldwide, and tabloids in the UK and America alike are almost always teeming with royal gossip.

Have you noticed the state of things lately?

They're not great. Frankly, the world kind of seems to be falling apart, what with the global pandemic and Great Depression-levels of unemployment. We could all really use some cheerful, brainless distraction from, you know, everything. And what's the best, most cheerful, and brainless form of distraction known to man? What a dumb question. It's obviously Christmas movies.

I don't think I've ever been as interested in royals as I've been since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their "step back" from the Royal Family earlier this year.

Back in January, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their plan to try being kind of normal in a divergence that's so cleverly been dubbed "Megxit." The couple are now splitting their time between the U.K. and North America, creating a perfect opportunity for Meghan to attend this year's Met Gala. Whispers have been circulating about the former Suits star maybe, possibly, getting back into acting, and this year's gala will serve as a perfect Hollywood homecoming for Meghan.

But Harry won't be by his lady's side; instead, Meghan will be attending with British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful. This pairing checks out, as Meghan guest-edited the magazine's September issue. The Met Gala will also mark Meghan's first public appearance as a non-royal; she and Harry will be stripped of their aristocratic titles come April 1.

"Meghan is keen to step out occasionally without Harry so that she can establish herself once more in Hollywood," an anonymous source told The Sun. In other words: Meghan seems to be thriving. Cutting ties with the Royal Family and attending the Met Gala is a major own.
