Meghan Markle could run for US President one day, her celebrity agent pal claims.
The Duchess of Sussex, 39, is eligible to run as she was born in the United States and Jonathan Shalit thinks it’s “not beyond the realm of possibility”.
While Mr Shalit said he’s “never heard” her express any desire to become President, he compared her to fellow actor Ronald Reagan, who was in the White House from 1981 to 1989.
He told the Sunday Telegraph : “She’s American-born, she has every right to run for president.
“Ronald Reagan was a B-list actor who ended up in the White House. Never say never.”
Mr Shalit said the perception of Meghan and Prince Harry in the US “different to the UK”.
He added: “The UK has a love-hate relationship with the Sussexes, but it’s different in the States.”
His comments come after it was announced that the couple had signed a huge deal with Netflix.
The mega bucks deal is thought to be worth around $150million (£110million).
It will see them make documentaries, films, scripted and kids’ programmes.
Meghan and Harry said in a statement: “Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.
“As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us.”
The deal comes less than one year after the couple stepped down from their roles as senior royals and moved out of the UK.
