Meghan Markle and Prince Harry SPLIT: Duchess to spend more time with showbiz friends


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s popular waxworks at Madame Tussauds London will be split up.

The attraction has revealed the Duchess of Sussex will be moved to a new room with famous celebrities.

Prince Harry, on the other hand, will be placed back among the rest of the Royal Family.

Meghan Markle’s figure is to be moved in the attraction to reflect her A-list roots, rather than her royal status.

Meghan’s model will be placed with showbiz heavyweights such as, including Tom Hardy, the Beckhams and Priyanka Chopra Jonas – all of whom attended her star-studded wedding to Prince Harry last May.

Meghan will now be in the “A-list Party room”.

Meghan’s likeness will be moved from the side of her husband’s for the first time since being unveiled in May 2018.

Prince Harry will re-join his family’s royal likenesses, leaving Meghan as one of the attraction’s most popular A-listers.

Steve Davies, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said: “At Madame Tussauds London we’re always listening to what people have to say about their favourite stars.

“Meghan continues to carve out her own modern take on life as a Royal and we want to mirror her independent celebrity status in the attraction.

“It’s not necessarily forever – and we’re not splitting our loved-up couple! We’re just allowing Meghan to mingle in her more-familiar celebrity circle for a while.”

In other news, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been criticised by Nigel Farage. 

Speaking in Australia at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Nigel criticised Harry’s interest in charity and climate change, and blamed Meghan for it.

“Terrifying,” Mr Farage said, “here was Harry, here he was this young, brave, boisterous, all male, getting into trouble, turning up at stag parties inappropriately dressed, drinking too much and causing all sorts of mayhem.

“And then, a brave British officer who did his bit in Afghanistan. He was the most popular royal of a younger generation that we’ve seen for 100 years.

“And then he met Meghan Markle, and it’s fallen off a cliff. We’ve been told in the last week that Meghan and Harry will only have two children…and we’re all completely ignoring, the real problem the Earth faces, and that is the fact the population of the globe is exploding but no one dares talk about it, no one dares deal with it, and whether Prince Harry has two kids is irrelevant given there are now 2.6 billion Chinese and Indians on this Earth.”

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have married into the Royal Family. However, the two women are very different.

One way in which this manifests is in their personal style. 

Fashion stylist Melita Latham looked at some of their most recent outfits, and told that when it comes to fashion, Meghan and Kate are “worlds apart.”

Melita explained: “Kate clearly followed Wimbledon etiquette with her stunning Dolce and Gabanna green dress which she has previously worn for another royal duty. Kate is not afraid to recycle her outfits.

“Meghan on the other hand wore a blazer and jeans. This was clearly a statement that rules are for breaking, and I am here to have a good time and not worry about how the world perceives me today! Although, Meghan still looks classy in whatever she wears.”

Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile

Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.

Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.


Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.

She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.

Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.

She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.

Charity and humanitarian work

Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.

She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.

And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.


In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.

But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.

She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.

And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.

They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Meghan’s heritage

Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.

Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.

But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.

She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
