Move over, Countess Luann de Lesseps. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has a dream casting call out for Duchess Meghan Markle. Bravo executive and brainchild behind the Real Housewives franchise, Andy Cohen, wants to give Meghan a diamond.
‘Megxit’ Rocks England’s Royal Family
The United States has been free of England’s hold since 1776. But we just can’t seem to shake our obsession with every move the royal family makes. Reality TV fans have a similar obsession with RHOBH.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their ‘Megxit’ from the royal family on Wednesday. The couple abruptly announced that they plan to step back from their royal duties. ‘Megxit’ is a play on ‘Brexit,’ the term used for Britain’s exit from the European Union.
The youngest son of Prince Charles and the beloved Princess Diana married Meghan in 2018. Meghan is an American actress, most well-known for her role on Suits. The couple had their first child, Archie, a year later.
Since that time, the British press has been horrendous to Meghan. In fact, there are several lawsuits pending over their behavior.
Even more shockingly, Meghan and Harry plan to split their time between the United Kingdom and North America. Many reports indicate that they will likely have a home in Canada, not in L.A., where RHOBH is set.
However, that didn’t stop Andy from cheekily offering Meghan a spot on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
‘Open Invite’ Extended to Meghan to Join RHOBH, Tagline Suggestion
The announcement from the royal couple was posted on their joint Instagram account. Andy quickly slid into the comments to let Meghan know she has a job waiting on RHOBH if she wants it.
In their statement, Meghan and Harry note that they plan to become “financially independent” in the future. In fact, there’s even rumors that Suits could be re-booted if Meghan is interested in returning to acting.
The official Bravo network account chimed in on Andy’s comment. They offered up a possible tagline for Meghan if she joined RHOBH. People reports the tagline is: “Beverly Hills is full of diamonds, but I’m the crown jewel.”
It’s unlikely that Meghan would join RHOBH right now. However, the show desperately needs a big name to replace unofficial queen, Lisa Vanderpump. As fans know, Lisa left The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after Season 9 after a brutal feud with her co-stars.
Royal Family Reportedly Taken By Surprise By Announcement
Many outlets are reporting that Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles were taken aback by the announcement. Reportedly, Meghan and Harry went rogue and released the statement without informing the family.
People reports that there is “a lot of hurt” by the announcement. The Queen’s office said called the matter “complicated” and still under discussion. Prince Harry is sixth in line for the throne.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns sometime in 2020 on Bravo.

“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. 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. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
