(JustPatriots.com)- Prince Harry and Meghan Markle hired the same PR firm that helped re-elect Barack Obama, another clue to their political ambitions.
The Sussexes have recruited Miranda Barbot, who worked on Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, to ‘change their image.’
‘There are elements of the Clintons or even Kennedys,’ a source told the Mirror. It wouldn’t surprise me if Meghan entered politics.’
Ms. Barbot was a 19-year-old college student when she joined Obama’s staff.
She has reportedly left US public relations agency BerlinRosen to join the Sussexes’ Archewell.
Meghan and Harry’s crew saw her during the Invictus Games in Holland.
A source called Ms. Barbot an “important player” in Harry and Meghan’s entourage and a “shrewd operator.”
Away from the Royal Family, they said Ms. Barbot had ‘a lot of experience’ helping them adjust.
“New Yorker and year-round iced coffee drinker,” writes Ms. Barbot’s Twitter bio.
It comes days after it was revealed the pair had an ex-Obama bodyguard.
Harry and Meghan have been embroiled in many public relations issues.
Last year’s Oprah interview where Meghan alleged one unnamed royal was racist.
Even though they have never declared their political allegiance, the Sussexes have been accused of interfering in UK and US politics.
In October, Meghan had allegedly fought for paid parental leave using ‘aspiring politician’ techniques.
She wrote a letter to Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the US House of Representatives, and Chuck Schumer, Majority Leader of the US Senate, concerning paid family leave legislation.
Meghan called Republican senators to urge them to support the ideas. It was the Duchess of Sussex who answered the phone.
The Obamas bonded with Harry via his Invictus Games, for which they featured in a film with the prince and the Queen in 2016.
Next year, for his guest edit of BBC Radio 4’s Today program, Harry interviewed Barack in Toronto.
As reported by People, Meghan and Michelle had a ‘power meeting’ backstage following Michelle’s presentation at the London Southbank Centre in December 2018.
Like the Obamas, the Sussexes have inked multi-million dollar partnerships with Netflix and Spotify to make their documentary series and podcasts.
Harry has struck a hefty four-book contract with Penguin Random House with the same publishers as Obama’s A Promised Land memoir.
Michelle published Becoming in 2018.
