Meghan Markle has been dubbed a “dishonest and narcissistic opportunist” after suggestions she would be a good candidate for the US Presidency.

US President Joe Biden's sister recently invited Meghan into the Democrat Party.

Valerie Biden Owens cited the need for more women to get involved with politics, and she feels Meghan would be "welcome" to join the party.

Asked about Meghan potentially being a candidate for the US Presidency one day, Ms Owens said: "Yes, perhaps. Of course she will."

But US broadcaster Megyn Kelly slammed the idea, saying that Meghan “loves the spotlight”, before hitting out at her apparent desire for privacy.

Speaking on GB News' Dan Wootton Tonight, Ms Kelly said: “I’m sure she is rubbing elbows and I’m sure she’d love to be President one day because she appears to love the spotlight although she doesn’t like to admit it.

“What this shows me, the fact she might be considering it or have her eye on it in the long term, that she’s a dishonest and narcissistic opportunist.

“Ms I want privacy wants to run for President.

“The Royal Family was a racists prison now wants to be on camera at the Queen’s Jubilee and wants to use her royal titles.

“Ms I want privacy for my children, she’s showing up to the Jubilee with her children who are going to be on camera and she wants to rub shoulders with the first tier royals."

She continued: “What she says to us publicly is not how she really feels, what she wants is the spotlight.

“She’s the same girl she was when she was backup girl number four for Howie Mandel where she showed she could open suitcases very well.

“But has she ever opened a campaign? Has she ever opened an office? Has she ever signed the front of a pay check instead of the back of one? Has she employed any staff?

“Yes she’s a star, but that doesn’t make you a President.”
