According to The Daily Mail tabloid, this Saturday, December 26th, Meghan Markle decided to take up the pen to publish her first book. She follows in the footsteps of other members of the Firm.
Actress, philanthropist, producer… Meghan Markle now wants to take the author’s hat off. This Saturday, December 26, the British tabloid The Daily Mail revealed that Prince Harry’s wife is about to release her first book.
But while some may be expecting a book of confessions or a shocking autobiography, they will be disappointed. The Duchess of Sussex succumbed to writing fiction. She will therefore take up the pen to deliver a short story on behalf of the Archewell Foundation, founded with her beloved in the wake of the Megxit.
A way for the ex-star of the Suits series to reconnect with writing, she has maintained a blog called The Tig, abandoned shortly before she joined the Firm in May 2018, but also to transmit the values she wishes to defend through her organization.
“Meghan has some experience as an author,” a source close to Archie’s mother reminded our colleagues across the Channel. This is particularly true when it comes to fashion, cooking and travel, subjects she frequently addressed on her former platform.
Fiction now has Meghan Markle’s full attention. An exercise she has “always” wanted to do. In doing so, she will join the list of those crowned heads who have improvised themselves as authors, like Sarah Ferguson – who has delivered numerous children’s fiction films such as Ballerina Rosie, Budgie The Little Helicopter or Ashley Learns About Strangers – and her father-in-law, Prince Charles. In 1980, the eldest son of Her Majesty Elizabeth II published his only children’s book, The Old Man of Lochnagar.
Imminent return to the United Kingdom?
Meghan Markle is on all fronts. For, alongside Prince Harry, the Duchess is taking care of her reconversion by multiplying projects, the writing of a book not being her only ambition. Indeed, the lovebirds have signed two juicy contracts with Netflix and Spotify, two giants of streaming for which they will develop documentaries, series or podcasts.
All this, still under the Archewell label. Happy in business and ready to patch things up with Kate Middleton and Prince William, the Crown rebels have, however, requested a twelve-month extension of the Megxit agreement. A cause that could lead them to return to London to negotiate the terms of their contract in person with members of the Windsor-Mountbatten clan.
