Meghan Markle has been urged to make a trip to the UK as part of her rebranding efforts and "while she has projected a polished image", she's also been advised to come across as "more relatable".

The Duchess of Sussex is busy with a flurry of projects, believed to be key to her and Prince Harry's image overhaul. Meghan is set to launch her new venture, American Riviera Orchard, and is also gearing up to release an exciting Netflix series focused on cooking and gardening.

The Sussexes are reportedly all in on crafting a fresh PR approach to win back public affection, highlighted by their recent appointment of two new publicists, including one based in the UK.

Lynn Carratt, from Press Box PR, told the Mirror: "To maintain their public image, it is important for Meghan to make a visit to the UK and while she has projected a polished image, she should also strive to be more open and relatable to her audiences in both the UK and the US."

Ms Carratt remarked: "Real-life isn't picture perfect with flowers and homemade jams and I'm sure Meghan life has it's difficulties. Demonstrating different facets of their personalities and acknowledging past missteps is be crucial for Harry and Meghan and building bridges in with the Royal Family could help improve public opinion, especially in the UK."

She went on to say that the choices Harry and Meghan make in their professional lives are crucial for regaining public favour. Ms Carratt remarked: "It is unlikely that they will renew their deal with Netflix. Their recent dinner with Paramount's Brian Robbins and his wife has sparked speculation about a potential new deal for them with Paramount."

She wrapped up her thoughts by saying that their upcoming Netflix shows will be "instrumental" in enhancing their popularity, highlighting the need for them to "showcase authenticity" to help people "relate to them better".

Meghan and Harry sensationally quit as working members of the Royal Family in 2020, before they moved to America to start a new life with their then-baby son, Archie, now five.

Whilst living in their sprawling Montecito mansion in California, Meghan and Harry welcomed a daughter, named Lilibet Diana. Their little girl will turn three in June.

Harry and Meghan are believed to be all but estranged from the rest of the Royals, including King Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

A year after leaving the UK, Meghan and Harry made a series of damning claims about the Royals in a now-infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey.

In 2023, Harry released a bombshell tell-all memoir about his life and family, named Spare, which is thought to have increased tensions between the once-close family.
