Meghan Markle has been tipped to become US president one day as her half-brother believes the Duchess of Sussex will do good things.

Thomas Markle Jr has said he would not be surprised to see the former American actress become President of the United States because of her “drive”.

Meghan has now spoken with Thomas Markle Jr, who has the same father as the duchess, for a decade but he believes she could be up to the task.

Speaking to Australia's New Idea magazine, he said: “She obviously has that personality and that determination and drive… it wouldn't surprise me [if she ran for president].

“I just know, whatever endeavour she endures and puts her hands on, she will do good things. I wish her the best of luck, but absolutely if that's what she's going to put her sights on, she'll go for it.”

The last time the two met was in 2011 at the funeral of their grandmother and Thomas Markle Jr was not invited to the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan.
