According to recent reports, Meghan is aiming for more positive publicity in Britain and actively seeking professional assistance to enhance her and Archewell's image.

According to a source who spoke to the news outlet, Harry and Meghan perceive a potential opening in Britain amid challenges facing King Charles' streamlined monarchy, which have been exacerbated by the monarch's illness.

However, a senior PR executive in London expressed skepticism, labeling the situation as a "s--- sandwich that many senior PR people will not be willing to eat."

They explained, "Many will turn it down. Representing the couple in the UK is a tantalizing thought, but they don't have a reputation for listening to advice."

"What would be the point?" they questioned, referencing Sussex's post-Megxit decisions, including public disputes with Harry's family and palace officials.

The expert further highlighted that the "Royal Family is looking short-staffed and quite elderly" and suggested the Sussexes view this as "an opportunity to step in to fill a vacuum over here with their own work."

"There is also growing noise stateside that Harry would like to carry out duties on behalf of his father again," the expert added. Nevertheless, they noted that "American stars also often expect their PRs to spend their time shouting at people - that's not going to appeal either in the UK where things are done rather differently."

Ede highlighted her genuine commitment to philanthropic endeavors, citing her recent involvement with the Mayhew Trust as evidence of her dedication to the causes she cares about.

He said: "If she is going to start to promote lifestyle brands in the UK, Meghan knows that the consumer audience, although smaller than North America, is very style savvy, and they love her looks and fashion sensibility."
