"I think everything she is doing, leaving the royal family and moving back to California is part of her plan and she has taken Harry along with her."

Speaking to Holly Willoughby, 39, and 58 year old Phillip Schofield on ITV's This Morning on Tuesday, Lady C reiterated those beliefs as she said: "I do not for one second buy that they would've gone to Hollywood for privacy because they would've had far more privacy had they remained in England."

She added: "Any fool knows that to be a fact."

Holly, who recently shared a photo of her kids returning to school amid the coronavirus pandemic, then asked about the I'm A Celebrity star's claims that Meghan, 38, wants to become the first female president of the United States of America.

The blonde beauty said: "And you've gone further to say that she may be going to run for president at some point…"

To which Lady C, who is coming out with a new book entitled Meghan and Harry: The Real Story, replied: "Well that's what she told people. She's told people that her ultimate ambition is to run for president.

"And she announced last week that she is going into politics, not withstanding the fact that no member of the British royal family is allowed to enter politics."

"She has leaked to her friends and her favourite journalists that she is going into politics. So she confirmed what I said, but I got it from somebody she instructed," she added.
