At the relatively young age of 40, Meghan Markle has seemingly already conquered multiple professional arenas. She started out as an actress, and enjoyed a successful multi-year run on the show "Suits." From there, the star went on to create a curated lifestyle blog called The Tig, which some people speculated was modeled after Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop.

Once Markle met and married Prince Harry, she shuttered the site and left Hollywood behind, going on to get the opportunity to support charities near and dear to her heart, ultimately founding a non-profit called the Archewell Foundation with her husband.

Now, after securing her place as one of the most well-known people on Earth, the Duchess of Sussex is a New York Times bestselling author, and along with Harry, has inked a $100 million deal with Netflix (via Hello!).

So what else could the former royal possibly add to her list of accomplishments? Well, according to a royal expert, Markle may be considering a career in politics at some point in the future.

Meghan Markle has largely separated herself from the royal family

As everyone and their brother now knows, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry left royal life behind in favor of a move to California. While they recently reunited with the Queen and other senior members of the royal family for the Platinum Jubilee, drawing mixed reactions from fans, the parents of two thenĀ jetted back to their Montecito mansion, where they spend most of their time.

Now, with their feet firmly planted back in the United States, at least one royal expert is positing that Markle may have her sights set on politics. Russell Myers opined on the "Lorraine" TV show that the Duchess of Sussex is "certainly making the right noises" if she envisions herself taking up activism or perhaps even something bigger in Washington, D.C. (via Daily Mail).

Myers specifically cited her Vogue interview, which saw Markle positioned along with Gloria Steinem as someone whose opinion on the Roe v. Wade decision was truly vital for people to hear. In part, she said, "This is about women's physical safety. It's also about economic justice, individual autonomy, and who we are as a society. Nobody should be forced to make a decision they do not want to make, or is unsafe, or puts their own life in jeopardy."

Meghan Markle may be headed to Washington soon

Talking about how Meghan Markle was willing to weigh in on such a controversial issue in the Vogue article, Russell Myers noted on "Lorraine," "Prince Harry and Megan have moved over to the United States. They've got their financial freedom. They've got their essential freedom from the royal family so they can speak on political issues" (via Daily Mail).

Myers also highlighted how the Duchess of Sussex hinted at going to Washington, D.C. at some point. Ultimately, the royal expert opined, "So does she have political ambitions? I do think she does. And she's certainly rubbing shoulders with the right people."

The show's host also seconded the notion that the mom of two might be eyeing a future in politics, saying, "I don't think it's ludicrous at all. She's got things to say and she's got an astonishing platform and she could make a real difference" (via Newsweek).
