Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's run for the White House may only be a matter of time since their move to the US, it has been claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been taking advice from former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle since they left the UK.

Prince Harry has been at Obama's side for years, after bonding over humanitarian and military issues and Harry's presentations of the Invictus Games for wounded military personnel.

Meghan is hugely fond of the former US First Lady, and she secretly attended a talk Michelle gave in London in 2018.

Since the Obamas left the White House in 2017, they have been on a tour de force, signing book deals, Netflix contracts, selling rights to their autobiographies and even setting up production companies and charities.

Harry and Meghan have adopted a similar approach, signing lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify.

Tom Rawstorne wrote in the Daily Mail: "The couple have made little secret of their political beliefs.

"During the US election last year they levelled a thinly veiled attack on Donald Trump by urging voters to 'reject hate speech'.

"And earlier this year there were reports that Meghan had been networking among senior Democrats with a view to building a campaign and fundraising teams for a tilt at the US presidency. Watch this space? Yes we can!"

Both couples have bought stunning mansions in the US, worked with local politicians and even share a mutual friend in Oprah Winfrey.

Meghan and Michelle have got stuck in helping with charitable work, often seen pictured helping out at homeless shelters or talking to the underprivileged.

Mr Rawstorne continued: "Who can blame the Sussexes for adopting a remarkably similar blueprint? Book deals, podcasts, Netflix deals, charitable deeds — they're matching them step for step. Surely a run at the presidency is only a matter of time."
