The Duchess of Sussex may have stepped down from her senior royal role, but it appears a reality television spot has opened up. 

Meghan Markle has been offered a role on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills by executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise, Andy Cohen.

The reality host made the offer after Prince Harry and Meghan announced they would be “stepping away” from their roles as senior members of the Royal Family.

“Open invite for The Duchess to joining #RHOBH [Real Housewives of Beverly Hills],” Cohen commented on the Instagram announcement.

The couple’s groundbreaking decision came in a statement on Wednesday, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said they will work to become financially independent, while continuing to “fully support” the Queen.

The couple’s move follows weeks of speculation about their future after they took an extended break from royal duties over the festive period that followed an emotional appearance in a documentary.

In the program, Harry and Meghan spoke about the pressures they have been facing and family rifts, and in a separate move Harry issued a damning statement against the media accusing sections of the press of bullying his wife.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution,” the couple said in their statement.

“We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the royal family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty the Queen.

“It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.

“We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to the Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages.

“This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.”

So, could a British royal be joining the Real Housewives franchise? Fingers crossed!
