Commissioned by Channel 4, the reality series, which started filming last month, will reportedly to include candid interviews with family and friends of the Suits star. A source close to the project reveals because Prince Harry’s girlfriend is a “hot topic,” “everyone is interested in her.”
“Channel 4 is going to go deeper into her past than anyone before,” the source said. “They want to discover new things about her family. It could be dramatic.”
The team behind BBC1’s ancestry show, Who Do You Think You Are? is reportedly making the reality series.
The source goes on to say that Meet the Markles will also tell the story of her ancestors and how she and Prince Harry met, with consideration to her “possible future role in the royal family.”
The news of a reality series comes months after Markle’s estranged half-sister, Samantha Grant took to Twitter calling Markle’s charitable efforts as “cheap” and accused her of having any lack of “human basic consideration.”
Grant is also reportedly writing a “tell-all,” outlining what it was like growing up with Markle as a child.
While Channel 4 has yet to confirm who will be interviewed for the series, Markle wrote a detailed essay for Bazaar last December about the pressure of being a celebrity, admitting, “With fame comes opportunity, but it also includes responsibility.”
