Meghan Markle to take on US presidency in film with 'political renegade' as main characterJuly 4, 2020
MEGHAN is set to take on the US presidency in a film project with a politically-motivated “renegade” as the main character.
The Duchess of Sussex, 38, is said to have struck a deal with author Lloyd Scott over her novel Election Year.
The pair are believed to have drawn up non-disclosure agreements which will see Meghan in a producer role overseeing the script’s development.
Lloyd’s story follows Senate staffer Maverick Johnson Malone as she battles to save America from a Russian operative plotting to become the next president.
Meghan is said to have “related to main character”.
A source said: “Lloyd has been excitedly telling people about the deal. She says Meghan contacted her after being alerted to an internet blog about the book.
“It would be a great screenplay and Meghan would have all the contacts to make it huge.
“It contains messages about democracy and standing up for what is right — which Meghan is all about.”
Ex-Suits star Meghan has insisted she does not wish to act again.
On Friday, it emerged she has applied to trademark the name of her and Harry’s new foundation, Archewell, for “motion picture films”.
It would not be the first time LA-based Meghan has tackled the presidency.
She called Donald Trump “misogynistic” and “divisive” during his 2016 campaign against Hillary Clinton.
Mr Trump, below, later denied labelling Meghan “nasty” — despite a recording of his comments.
Meanwhile, Meghan and Harry’s 14-month-old son Archie is nearly walking at their £15million rented home in Los Angeles, it was claimed today.
Royal expert Katie Nicholl told chat show Entertainment Tonight: “I think he is just about walking.
“He’s a very happy little boy, he’s loving life in LA.”
Meghan appeared with Archie wriggling around on her lap on a video for his first birthday in May. Most babies start walking at between nine and 15 months.
