By a well-known Constitution amendment, 211 years old, the Duchess could not run for President of the United States.

Experts have suggested that a modification was made in the Constitution of 1810, to prohibit anyone receiving ‘a title or nobility bestowed by a foreign power’ from being elected to office.

The centuries-old amendment was initially proposed to stop Napo­leon’s nephew from seeking power after his brother married American socialite Eliza­beth ‘Betsy’ Pat­ter­son amid speculation their son may run for office.

The Sunday Telegraph reports that the plan could be revived to stop plans by the Duchess of launching a leadership campaign. 

Although Meghan Markle never stated a desire to run for office in the open, Tom Bower (a biographer) has said that it was possible and even probable that a presidential campaign would be launched.

The Duchess has also been politically active since marrying into the Royal Family, attempting to influence a $1.75 trillion infrastructure plan to include paid leave for new parents and penning an open lobbyist letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer pleading for it to be made a ‘national right’.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s critics, aides and royal family members have complained that she is inappropriately using her title when it comes political matters. 

US politicians believe Meghan introduced herself to the world as The Duchess. She was accused of using the ‘tactics of an aspiring politician and adopting a stubborn streak to push for Biden’s Build Back Better bill.

However, her allies claim that this is her legal title after she changed it from Meghan Markle to Prince Harry’s in May 2018. 

Experts in constitutional law have stated that there are no technical reasons why she cannot run under her title for the presidency, even though there has been little precedent.

Experts highlighted an amendment named the Titles of Nobil­ity Amend­ment, made in 1810, that was proposed and passed in Congress. 

It states any­one who ‘accepts, claims, receives or retains a title of nobil­ity bestowed by a for­eign power’ is prevented from holding federal office.

Three quarters of the state legislatures needed to support it in order to make it law.

The number required was however 14, and so the amendment was never approved.

The item was also never put away and has been on the same table for the past 211 years. 

This was done amid nervousness and tension in America, then surrounded with superpowers like Canada, Florida, Spain, Louisiana, France, etc.

Napoleon Bonaparte’s younger brother Jérôme then wed Ms Patterson, leading to murmurs their son could run for office and the US could be subsumed into the French empire.

If the amendment were to be reintroduced, then the 12 votes for it would still count.

This would mean that 26 additional states will need to approve the amendment in order for it to become law.  

John Kowal, co-author of a his­tory of con­sti­tu­tional amend­ments in The People’s Con­sti­tu­tion, said: ‘I’m not aware of any pre­ced­ent, where someone who is pub­licly known and pub­licly uses a noble title from another coun­try has run for polit­ical office. I think it would be very con­tro­ver­sial.’  

“Britain’s strong tradition of keeping the royals out politics is probably more intrusive that anything any royal might dare do in Britain.

“Meeting senators to lobby for bill–this is her injecting herself in US politics.

According to reports, Acid-penned Mr Bower agreed to pay six figures to the Duchess to share her story. He said the Duchess would “struggle” with criticisms from politicians for being’sensitive.
