Meghan Markle would be a great candidate for the United States presidency, claimed President Joe Biden's sister Valerie Biden Owens.

Speaking to ITV's "Good Morning Britain," Biden Owens said, "It's wonderful to have women in politics. The more women we have, the better our democratic system will work - a better point of view, a different point of view."

"We embrace all women and we welcome her to come in and join the Democratic party." When asked if the Duchess of Sussex would "make a good potential candidate one day maybe for president," she answered, "Yes, of course, she will."

Biden Owen's endorsement comes after biographer Tom Bower revealed his upcoming tell-all book would include "extraordinary information" about Meghan's rise to power. "It is an astonishing story of a woman who came from nothing and is now a world figure and has trampled on all those others on the way which is classic for the sort of people I always choose, whether it's a politician or a tycoon," he said. "And I think that the public perception of her will be either confirmed or outraged, or in any case, it'll be a great surprise."

Meghan, 40, withdrew from royal duties in March 2020. Together with Prince Harry and their son, they relocated to the U.S., where she has become more active in political matters. She previously began talking with Republican politicians to include paid parental leave and a climate policy by the U.S. government.

In 2021, a senior member of the Labour party revealed Meghan was planning to run for President as a Democrat in 2024. According to the source, who was from Tony Blair's administration and has strong ties to Washington D.C., Meghan was networking among senior Democrats.

Meanwhile, former U.S. President Donald Trump, who Meghan once called "misogynistic," has called Queen Elizabeth to strip the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of their titles during an interview with Piers Morgan. "The only thing I disagree with the Queen on probably one of the only things ever is that I think she should have said, if that's your choice, fine. But you no longer have titles, you know."

Trump also told the presenter that Harry was "whipped like no person I think I've ever seen." He also predicted that Harry and Meghan's relationship would end badly, called Harry an "embarrassment," and said it was "terrible" that he missed Prince Philip's memorial service.
