    You’d think that people would recognise that Meghan Markle has got a lot on at the moment, having only just joined the royal family and become the Duchess of Sussex and all.

    But that hasn’t stopped rumours that she’s hoping to run for President of the United States from circling.

    It was reported earlier this week that, not long after getting engaged to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle shared her hopes to one day become President.

    ‘Meghan was quite clear that she wanted to be president one day,’ a ‘former close associate’ reportedly told the Daily Mail.

    However, if you were hoping Meg would become the first female President, it isn’t looking terribly likely.

    Kensington Palace has confirmed that the Duchess of Sussex won’t be adding POTUS to her CV any time soon, with a spokesperson shutting down the rumours.

    ‘The conversation you describe with an associate is fictitious,’ a representative said of the matter, Yahoo News reports.

    That settles that then.

    While Meghan Markle would make an excellent President, we’re sure you’ll agree she’s got quite enough on her plate already.
