Meghan Markle could target 'key powerful seat' to 'leapfrog' into political office


Richard Johnson, Lecturer in US Politics & Policy at Queen Mary, said that the Duchess of Sussex, Megan Markle, could "leapfrog" into top political office through a key California senate seat which may soon become vacant.

He said: "If she was truly politically ambitious, the key powerful seat that she would be eligible for would be the key California Senate seat that is currently occupied by Diane Feinstein, who is nearly ninety and is therefore unlikely to stand again. If she wanted to follow this track of high profile celebrities leapfrogging to the top office, that senate seat would be a very attractive one for her."
