This announcement makes me laugh. I happen to like Meghan for her independent and focused spirit in most of her aspirations.
So many Brits have only derogatory comments about her for Harry’s choice to move to the states. These tags are what would make her a viable choice for a political candidate: stubborn, pushy, nasty, an actress, making people bend to her will, confident, weaving the truth to become what she wants…
It sounds like a potential politician to me. See what I mean?
wouldn’t it be marvellous if she eventually became madam president and met the King of UK on equal terms and told him to b…r off!! - I wonder if Harry would let her do it or she would just look him steally in the eye and say " Hi buddy - can ya spare a dime"!!
What makes me laugh is the way the media create a story out of nothing more than someone giving an opinion in answer to a question someone has asked them - then everybody starts talking about it as if it’s really happening.
As far as I can tell, Meghan has never said she is running for President and it doesn’t look as if anybody asked her about it before publishing the story in the media - so it’s just another speculative non-story, really.
If Meghan announces she is running for President, then that would be a story.
Meghan Markle came in joint first place alongside Vice President Kamala Harris, also on 25 percent.
Hilary Clinton, who lost the US election to Donald Trump in 2016, was next with 22 per cent.
18 per cent backed congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, while six percent voted for Senator Elizabeth Warren. Four percent voted for the other option or were not sure.
The revelation is part of a trove of Archewell foundation financial documents released for the year 2021, which show the Sussexes made payments to the public relations agency of Katie McCormick Lelyveld. Ms Lelyveld began working for the former first lady in 2007 a year before Barack Obama was elected as president and left near the end of his first term in 2011. Overall, the Sussexes paid Ms Lelyveld about (USD)$110,000 or (AUD)$165,000 for “strategic support for social impact PR”.
The political power player has also worked with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and 2004 Democratic nominee for President John Kerry.
Of course, the payment may have been for advice about curtains …
Probably, but who’d have thought that a previously “unlucky” actress would get a big break in a TV series, meet and marry a Prince then become a Duchess …
After her junior year at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, she secured an internship in 2000 as a junior press officer at the American embassy in Buenos Aires, with the help of her uncle Michael Markle, and considered a political career. However, she did not score high enough in the Foreign Service Officer Test to proceed further with the US State Department and returned to NU.
