Meghan ⁤Markle, the Duchess ​of Sussex, ‌is reportedly contemplating a bid for the ‍Senate seat ⁢left vacant by the passing of California Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein.


The‌ speculation arises ​following Feinstein’s death at her Washington, ⁤D.C., residence on Friday. She was 90 years old.

According to Daily ‌Mail, prominent California Democrat donors and‌ politicians expressed interest when news of Markle’s potential candidacy ⁢for the vacant seat emerged.

After returning ‌to her ‌hometown of Los Angeles with her husband, Prince Harry, Duke ⁣of Sussex, in 2020, the Duchess has been actively advocating for various causes, including parental paid leave and gun safety organizations like Moms Demand Action.

California⁣ Governor Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) holds the responsibility of selecting Feinstein’s replacement for the remaining 13‌ months of her​ term.

A close associate of Newsom, ​who is a major California donor, stated that Markle’s eligibility has not been ruled out.

“Meghan is definitely a long-shot,‍ but in the craziness that is‌ U.S. politics these days, ​it’s not an impossibility.⁤ Crazier things‌ have happened,” ⁢the anonymous ⁤source said.

This is not the first time Governor Newsom has ⁢had to fill ​a ​vacant Senate seat. He ​did so ‌in 2020 after Kamala Harris was elected⁤ Vice President.

During that time, the Daily Mail reported‌ Markle’s interest in Harris’ open ​seat ⁤and her efforts to network within progressive circles.

Reports suggest that Markle’s ultimate goal is to run for president.

According to‌ the Daily Mail, prominent California‌ Democrat donors and politicians have expressed interest in Markle’s potential⁢ candidacy for⁢ the vacant seat.

After returning to​ her hometown of Los Angeles⁣ with ⁤her husband, Prince Harry,⁢ Duke of Sussex, in 2020, the Duchess ‌has been actively advocating for various causes, including parental ‍paid leave and gun safety organizations like Moms⁢ Demand Action.

California Governor Gavin‍ Newsom‌ holds the responsibility of selecting Feinstein’s replacement⁣ for the remaining 13 months of her term.
