Meghan Markle could ‘run for US president’ claims her celebrity agent pal
Meghan Markle could run for president of the United States, a celebrity agent who knows Prince Harry's wife has claimed.
Jonathan Shalit told the Sunday Telegraph Meghan running for president wouldn't be "beyond the realm of possibility" for the former Suits star.
He compared the Duchess to Ronald Reagan, who was a B-list actor who ended up in the White House and added "never say never."
Mr Shalit, who has met Meghan on several occasions, said she is "very ambitious".
But also admitted that can be "an unpleasant character trait" in the US.
He said: "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 added that perception of the Suits actress and Prince Harry is "different in the UK" than to that in the United States.
He said: "I think Meghan is very ambitious, but in this country that is sometimes considered an unpleasant character trait.
"Yet she's achieved a great deal already."
The celebrity agent's comments comes as the couple announced their decision to sign a £112m deal with US streaming giant Netflix.
As part of the deal, Meghan and Harry will make documentaries, films, kids programmes and write scripts for Netflix' 193m subscribers.

In a statement, the couple said of their programming: "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."
Mr Shalit told the Telegraph that Meghan had a "very magical, comforting way with people" and the "part of the touch Diana had."
Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s co-chief executive and chief content officer, said in a statement: "We’re incredibly proud they have chosen Netflix as their creative home and are excited about telling stories with them that can help build resilience and increase understanding for audiences everywhere.”
