President Meghan Markle are three words that many analysts feel is a real possibility, except for one who finds the idea "utterly ridiculous."

"Meghan Markle has zero qualifications for running for president or public office, and has zero chance of ever making it to the White House," former policy advisor to Rudy Giuliani and Margaret Thatcher, Nile Gardiner, shared on X.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly attempting to 'mix in political circles' in America.

Gardiner's remarks follow those of Erika Alexander, who acted alongside Meghan in Suits and recently commented that the ex-working royal seems poised for a political future, suggesting she could be on her way to the White House. Alexander praised the Duchess, calling her a "diplomat" and an "ambassador."

Furthermore, a political insider suggested that Meghan's recent visit to Nigeria might be reminiscent of Donald Trump's transition from a business career to the presidency, despite lacking prior political experience.

The Duchess of Sussex is a British royal only by virtue of marriage, but Prince Harry is a prince of the royal blood and fifth in line to the throne. Their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet Diana, are sixth and seventh in line, respectively. None of this can be altered without an Act of Parliament in the United Kingdom. Since non-elected hereditary royals mixing in electoral politics is a no-go, Meghan's running for American political office could set off a huge constitutional crisis in the U.K.

Meghan Markle wrote Nancy Pelosi a letter in 2021.

Not to mention, the United States was essentially founded on its separation from the British monarchy in 1776. Although Meghan is American, she is still royalty as long as she is married to Harry and his style and titles are kept intact. Many commentators have speculated that if the Duchess announces a bid for the presidency, King Charles III and Parliament will have to act to fully strip the Sussex family of all rank and titles.

In 2021, Meghan wrote a letter to then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and stated, "I’m not an elected official, and I’m not a politician. I am, like many, an engaged citizen and a parent. I’m writing to you on behalf of millions of American families who are using their voices to say that comprehensive paid leave should not be a place to compromise or negotiate."

'Although just as despised, I don't think Meghan Markle has Donald Trump's crossover charisma,' a Hollywood insider said of the Duchess of Sussex.

As The Royal Observer previously reported, Paul Burrell, the former butler, and confidant of Diana, Princess of Wales, once stated that the Duchess of Sussex will likely end up turning to politics after she fails to conquer Hollywood. "It’s not so far-fetched because they have to keep going on; they have to keep reinventing themselves because if they don’t, that brand is going to disappear, the Sussex brand will disappear," Diana's "rock" shared.
