Meghan Markle wanted to be on Made In Chelsea, claims former pal

A former pal of Meghan Markle has claimed the Duchess had dreams of being cast on the reality TV series Made In Chelsea and bagging an English boyfriend.

Speaking on GB News, TV personality Lizzie Cundy told presenter Nigel Farage about her chance meeting with then actress Meghan Markle after she was asked to sit next to her at a charity event.

Lizzie, 53, said: "I didn’t know who she was at the time and John Caudwell said 'Can you sit next to this girl, she’s flown in from Canada?'

"I wanted to be with my mates, but John told me to look after her.

"We got on really well and she said she wanted to find an English Boyfriend and I said I’ll help you."

The former wife of footballer Jason Cundy continued: "She loved being here in London, she wanted to work here and she wanted to be in Made in Chelsea – I remember her saying she loved the show.

"She was a really good, fun girl."

Speaking of their relationship now, Lizzie explained that Meghan ghosted her after she married Prince Harry in 2018, but claimed she understood the decision.

Meghan and Harry now live in California after they stepped back from royal duties in early 2020.

The couple made their most recent public appearance at this week's Invictus Games in The Hague, Netherlands.

This sighting of Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, comes just hours after news emerged that the couple made a stop in the United Kingdom to meet with Queen Elizabeth II.

They spent Easter Sunday morning watching the first full day of the competition get underway as they sat front row at the athletics track for the sitting volleyball.

A camera crew filming for a Netflix documentary called Heart Of Invictus – a series from Harry and Meghan’s Archewell Productions following people competing at the event – has been seen close to the couple since they arrived at the games on Friday.

The pair signed a multimillion-pound deal with streaming giant Netflix in 2020.

Prince Harry, a military veteran, founded Invictus Games in 2014. The event provides athletic events for injured service members.

"I couldn't be more excited for the journey ahead or prouder of the Invictus community for continuously inspiring global healing, human potential and continued service," Prince Harry said in a statement. He will serve as executive producer on the series and will appear on camera.
