Royal biographer Tom Bower was convinced that Markle would likely launch a U.S. presidential campaign. However, for him, the duchess might struggle with the barrage of criticisms aimed at politicians because she is "sensitive."

He also added that Markle needs to be a "team player" and build an army of loyal staff. However, previous reports claimed that she had issues working with people when she was still a working royal.

"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," Bower told Closer magazine.

"From beginning to end, I think it’s a complete joke," Thomas told the host. "I don't think she has any ambition to be a mayor. I don’t think she has any ambition to be a governor or president. I don't think that's in her mind at all."
