In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph, Mr Shalit said: “She's American-born, she has every right to run for president.

“Ronald Reagan was a B-list actor who ended up in the White House. Never say never.”

He added that the perception of the couple in the States was “different to the UK”.

Mr Shalit, who has met the Duchess on a number of occasions, continued: “The UK has a love-hate relationship with the Sussexes, but it's different in the States.

“I think Meghan is very ambitious, but in this country that is sometimes considered an unpleasant character trait. 

“Yet she's achieved a great deal already.”

It comes as the couple signed a £112m Netflix deal, announced last Wednesday.

As part of the deal, Meghan, 39, and Harry, 35, will make documentaries, films, scripted and kids’ programmes for the streaming giant’s 193m subscribers.

A source told the Daily Mirror that the deal could include a documentary on Princess Diana, and focus on her family history and heritage. 

In a statement, the couple said of their programming: “Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.”

Mr Shalit told the Telegraph that Meghan had a “very magical, comforting way with people” and the “part of the touch Diana had”.

He added that they should use their Netflix platform to “to only champion issues they have got a genuine interest in”.

Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s co-chief executive and chief content officer, said in a statement: "We’re incredibly proud they have chosen Netflix as their creative home and are excited about telling stories with them that can help build resilience and increase understanding for audiences everywhere.”

Earlier this summer, the royal couple moved into a £11m home in Santa Barbara after their stay in Tyler Perry's £14m LA mansion.

The couple now live in a £11m nine-bedroom and 16-bathroom mansion in upscale Montecito, Santa Barbara.
