The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has been “welcomed” to join the Democratic Party, by the sister of US President Joe Biden.

Valerie Biden Owens also mentioned that she believes the Duchess would ‘make a good potential’ candidate for President.

She made the comments on Good Morning Britain when discussing Meghan’s rumoured interest in politics and whether she would be successful.

When asked if Meghan would make a good potential candidate for President, she replied: “Yes, perhaps. Of course she will.”

Valerie is Joe Biden’s campaign manager and is a champion for women in politics.

“It’s wonderful to have women in politics. The more women we have, the better our democratic system will work. A better point of view, a different point of view.”

Speaking about Meghan directly, she added that the Duchess would be welcomed into the Democratic party.

“We embrace all women and we welcome her to come in and join the Democratic party.”

The Duchess has been outspoken about issues in the community, so it makes sense that she may harbour some ambitions to go into politics one day.

Meghan Markle has been outspoken about causes close to her heart.

In October, she wrote a letter to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to support paid parental leave. She stressed that "no family should have to choose between earning a living and having the freedom to take care of their child (or a loved one, or themselves, as we would see with a comprehensive paid leave plan).

"Paid leave should be a national right, rather than a patchwork option limited to those whose employers have policies in place, or those who live in one of the few states where a leave program exists,” she continued. This is about putting families above politics."
