Barely weeks after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey aired on CBS, there’s a new buzz around the Sussexes – insiders have begun to see Markle as a prolific political candidate. And if things pan out just the way people assume, Meghan might be the next non-white leader to hold office in the White House after former president Barack Obama.

Leading biographer Tom Bower joined the list of those who believed that Meghan had it all to make the cut in U.S. politics, if she were to ever run for a seat. He however maintained that the Duchess of Sussex might need to learn to “take the heat” if she really chooses to enter the world of politics.

“The prospect of Meghan running for president is possible and I'd even say likely. I really believe it's where she sees herself going,” said Bower, as cited in The Sun. “Perhaps [she might] visit the UK to have tea with the Queen one day as President of the United States!” he added.

The 39-year-old royal has been chided for alleged bullying of royal staff in the past (which she vehemently denies and claims a clear smear campaign). Bower, who’s readying himself to write an epic biography on the Duchess, believes Meghan might need to work on her team-building skills as well. “We've seen through the reports about her staff members quitting and moving on that she doesn't seem to be able to hold on to her team,” he said, indicating how the drama of 13 key aides putting their papers down didn’t go unnoticed either.

Bower also averred that her “clear sensitivity” could pose challenges as the world of politics isn’t for the faint-hearted. “They're [politicians] probably the public figures who face the most backlash. I really think she would struggle. She'd need to learn to take the heat,” he added.

On the upside, Bower believes Markle’s confidence and drive to make things happen could be her biggest assets that would eventually garner votes. There’s a lot of hype around the Sussexes, and their voices never go unheard. This could be Meghan’s Trump card if she decides to plunge into U.S. politics. The former "Suits" star who’s been clued up about U.S. politics raised eyebrows when she expressed a political stance and urged people to vote.

Harry took things up a notch when he opined, “As we approach this November, it’s vital we reject hate speech, misinformation, and online negativity.” Harry and Meghan were clearly the only royals who voiced their opinion on politics – a subject that has been dealt with neutrality by the members of the British Royal Family. While the degree of their inclination towards politics is yet to established, Meghan could mean business as a political candidate too—or so believe many.
