Meghan Markle wants to run for president of United States, claims Lady Colin Campbell

Famous author Lady Colin Campbell has claimed that Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle wants to run for president of the United States in the future.

The 70-year-old author who appeared in I’m A Celebrity said the wife of Prince Harry has political ambitions and her decision to move to the United States was part of the plan.

...

Speaking to FEMAIL!, Lady Campbell said, I know the Duchess of Sussex has political ambitions and I’ve been told that one day she wants to run for President.

She added, I think everything she is doing, leaving the royal family and moving back to California is part of her plan and she has taken Harry along with her.

I dont get the HH reference, unless you mean the ultimate flying leg drop of destiny or whatever, which, I would pay good money to see.

He sued a paper for libel and put them out of business.

I forget what the exact issue was, but it had something to do with the dick size of his stage persona.

In some states "revenge porn" is illegal. Is a "sex tape" surreptitiously recorded without knowledge of at least one of the participants legitimate news? Or just a salacious invasion of someone's privacy? Gawker tried to argue the former. A jury didn't agree.

Looks like they won't starve to death after all. :)

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry 'set to be offered seven-figure Spotify megadeal for exclusive podcasts' following Michelle Obama's project with streaming service
Daily Fail
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly set to be offered a seven figure deal to produce podcasts for Spotify.

Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 39, who are currently living in their $14 million mansion in Santa Barbara, having officially stepped back from royal duty seeking financial independence in March.

The streaming giant, which is worth £22bn, are hoping to sign the royal couple following the success of The Michelle Obama podcast, which launched last month, and has been a huge ratings hit.

Sources told the Mirror that money is 'no object' for Spotify and Meghan would be able to 'more or less name her price'.

Note: Meghan. Her price. Harry is just a hanger-on-er. What a loser.

She's signed a multi-million dollar deal with Netflix.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-54003296

But she had to leave the UK because she couldn't stand the "intrusive press coverage".
Our lives, both independent of each other, and as a couple have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection.

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, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens.
Can anyone glean any slight meaning from that mess of verbiage? Does it give anyone a glimmer of an idea as to what work the couple might actually do to earn their millions from Netflix? Answers please.

What they are going to do is to actualize their life experience with particular regard to their interface with oppressed and marginalized communities. This will be leveraged in a positive, humanistic, ecosystem for the general betterment of those that had been outside of the patriarchal framework.

Clear?

She is not in her position because of her brains.

Well, clearly there's different kinds of press coverage. I think "intrusive" is one of those classic British understatements.

Of course in the modern world moving to a different continent doesn't really make any difference, does it?

At least as far as the British tabloids are concerned. They can run but they cannot hide.

Exactly. :bigthumb:

I'm sure that's her thinking, but if she really didn't like it she's in for a shock.

There's a tsunami of hate headed her way once the show airs.

The show? What ed said of course, and I'm guessing the McGuffin will be a poverty stricken African American girl who is abused and oppressed.
Spoiler:
The girl prevails by her own exertions. "Pluck" as Meghan's husband would call it. Very English that. 8)

Indeed. They wanted to get away from paparazzi, so they moved to Hollywood.
