Meghan Markle would need to renounce her royal title if she would want to join the presidential race, according to an expert. The Duchess of Sussex’ royal titles will reportedly not help her political career and will only be damaging.
Meghan Markle Advised To Renounce Royal Title
Us Constitutional Expert Mark Tushnet spoke with Express about Meghan Markle’s royal title and the rumors about her running for president. For him, the duchess should ditch the honor because it would only damage her political career.
“As a practical matter, though, she’d have to renounce her titles to run,” Tushnet told the outlet. “Politically, it would be quite damaging, I think, for her to retain the titles.”
He continued, “Opponents will seize on anything, and this will be a hook to say ‘well she’s not really a true American.'”
The rumors about Markle running for president have been making rounds for over a year already. However, the duchess has not addressed the speculations yet. But some of her family members already spoke about the issue.
