Nigel Farage has admitted that he’d “love to see” Meghan Markle running against Donald Trump for the US presidency.

But the pair reportedly have a Netflix docuseries and a book set to be released in the coming months, leaving everyone wondering what new stories will be revealed.

And while Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams hopes that the release of the book will be postponed, Nigel says the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “want the money”.

To which Mr Fitzwilliams replied during a discussion on GB News: “They might very well much want the money, but of course there is Biden’s sister suggesting she could be a future President.”

Before Nigel quickly added: “I’d love to see her running against Trump, I’d love to see that.”

Mr Fitzwilliams was referring to Joe Biden’s sister Valerie Biden Owens, who cited the need for more women to get involved with politics last month, adding that 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."

Speaking after Ms Owens’ comments, US broadcaster Megyn Kelly slammed the idea on GB News’ Dan Wootton Tonight.

Ms Kelly said: “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.”
