One day in early 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had announced their exit from the royal family of Britain. The couple’s quest to be “financially independent” away in the US still echoes in the royal quarters. After distancing themselves from royalty and many media deals and trivialities later, the Duchess might be heading to a position of power. The only difference is that she would still be in the United States.

After the unfortunate demise of California senator, Dianne Feinstein, the former Suits actress is reportedly throwing in her hat to secure the seat. As far-fetched as it may sound, she might have a decent chase at this, thanks to the circumstances.

To the unaided, politics is a tricky game. Unlike Britain’s monarchy, where hierarchy reigns supreme, politics runs on a different ball game. After Feinstein’s passing, California Governor Gavin Newsom now had to elect a candidate who would hold office for thirteen months. Here is when Meghan Markle is eyeing a spot for herself. As reported by sources of DailyMail, a Democrat insider said that Markle winning the senator bid “is definitely a long-shot but in the craziness that is US politics these days it’s not an impossibility.”

Rather, as surprising as it may sound, the former Suits actress may actually have a pretty decent chance at it. Governor Newsom has already announced that Feinstein’s successor would be a woman of color. All good until the fact that most of whom he is eyeing have already pitched in their hats to run for the November 2024 elections. As such, choosing them would be unfair. Thus, among the handful of choices the Governor now faces, Meghan Markle apparently comes out as a top choice.

It is no secret that the tall claims of being financially independent” in the US haunted Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for a long time in the US. After their hallowed and coveted breakthroughs with Spotify fell through and their Netflix docuseries’ reach fainted by the day, things started to look bleak. Amidst a faltering public outlook, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a roaring comeback with their display of oneness at the 2023 Invictus Games in Germany.

In the heat of media scrutiny back home, Prince Harry drew enviable command as the Invictus crowd sang him a birthday song and lapped him and the Duchess in praises. The duo’s show of love signaled a strong bond and marked a positive uptick in their public relations. All of it begs a response from streamers to renew and sign the royal couple for new deals. As of now, it is only a matter of time that could make or break the royal couple’s US trajectory.
