Star Move! Meghan Markle Hires New Hollywood PR Team To 'Break The Internet'
Meghan Markle reportedly wants to go Hollywood when it comes to her public relations. The former Suits actress, 38, recently met with representatives from the American PR company Sunshine Sachs, as The Sun first reported. Prince Harry's wife hired the firm to help with the September edition of Vogue magazine that she guest edited, the British publication reported.
"Even thought it was the UK version of the mag, she wanted maximum coverage in America, which is the country she really cares about in terms of the media," a source told The Sun. "She was incredibly hands-on with the strategy and in one meeting told the staff, 'I want to break the internet.'
The new report follows one in The Mail on Sunday that claimed Meghan and Harry are mulling a move to her native Los Angeles after facing criticism in England.
The Mail on Sunday insider said Meghan, rumored to be a diva, and Harry, 34, have apparently snubbed his father Prince Charles’ plans for them to reside in an estate in Herefordshire. Charles hoped his son would create a country estate for his family near the Welsh borders.
But Harry reportedly isn't interested in that—and instead, could be heading to America with his ex-actress wife and their baby Archie, now three months old. The source told The Mail that Meghan and Harry "do not feel they need to change their actions, but rather, change the people around them and possibly even the country they call home. They have no wish, for the moment, to take on a stuffy shooting estate."
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Meghan has been rumored to be difficult as multiple royal staffers have quit after working for her. Meghan's lavish, star-studded baby shower in New York City raised eyebrows back in the U.K.
The former TV star and her Prince Harry, who support a clean environment, have also been slammed for using private jets.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been called “hypocrites” for their luxury travel by environmentalists, members of Parliament and Princess Diana’s former royal protection officer Ken Wharfe, as Vanity Fair has reported.
Now Meghan appears to be favoring a high-powered American PR team to build her brand. Sunshine Sachs is now believed to be working exclusively in the US for the Sussex Royal charity foundation, which Harry and Meghan formed after their split from William and Kate's foundation.
However, a critic said, "You can't hire a PR company to represent the royal family. The relationship between the royal family and the public is something that is beyond spin.
"That's a dangerous precedent to set because there is a reason why courtiers and advisers treat members of the royal family differently - they are not celebrities, they are publicly funded official figures with a formal role. "And they need to hear the truth, even if it's not the answer they want. That's something Harry does not like and Meghan isn't familiar with from her former career."
Now royal staffers are allegedly wondering if Meghan wants to be real princess or a Hollywood-style star!
