4 Major Meghan Markle Predictions from a Royal Expert

#TBT to January 2020. The news had just dropped that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had made the life-altering decision to quit the royal family and move to North America.

At the time, PureWow caught up with Myka Meier, founder of Beaumont Etiquette and royals expert, who also happens to have her finger on the pulse of what goes on inside Buckingham Palace. We wanted to hear her predictions for what was ahead...and they all came true. (For example, Meghan has already returned to acting post-split via her Elephant documentary on Disneynature. Myka totally called it!)

That’s why, when Myka recently dropped by the Royally Obsessed podcast, the hosts couldn’t wait to ask her again: What’s in store for Harry and Meghan now that they’re officially settled in L.A.? Check out her four biggest predictions below.

Prediction #1: Meghan And Harry Will Strongly Consider A Second Baby

A sibling for Archie? “I know that Harry loved growing up with his brother Prince William very close in age and I think that he wants the same thing for Archie. This time, it will be an American-born baby, which is very different from the first. It also means that this baby technically could become president one day,” Meier said.

Prediction #2: Meghan And Harry’s Global Footprint Is About To Expand

Gone are the days when their philanthropic efforts were almost exclusively UK-based. “I think we’re going to see them back in Africa soon,” Meier said. “But we’re also going to see a lot of American non-profits taking a big position in their lives. They are going to be great humanitarians and this is going to be a very busy year for them.”

Prediction #3: Meghan Is Going To Write A Book

Meier weighed in: “I think we’re going to see a Michelle Obama-style book—in the next year.” Add to cart.

Prediction #4: She’s Also Got Big Plans For An Instagram Re-launch

@SussexRoyal 2.0? “I’m pretty sure there’s a Goop-ish thing coming soon—or a new version of The Tig. It will be something very interesting and creative with masterminds from all over the world participating,” Meier said.
