Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is reportedly set to get a "real Hollywood makeover" by stylist to the stars, Jamie Mizrahi, who has worked on the likes of Adele and Jennifer Lawrence. In what is being phrased as "yet another relaunch" since "Megxit" four years ago, not every Tinseltown insider is convinced the "megawatt revamp" will stick to the ex-actress.

"I don’t like to call it a rebrand or relaunch," royal and entertainment expert Kinsey Schofield dished before assessing the announcement as nothing more than "a nip and tuck through a fresh wardrobe or a dull podcast announcement — a diversion."

The Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry have been "hot and heavy" on the PR circuit during the first quarter of 2024, with multiple glossy appearances at film premieres and more. Although both ex-working royals and their spokespeople are adamant that it is sincere and "all for good causes, Schofield is highly skeptical.

"Team Sussex is trying to distract from the decline in their professional reputation and general likability," Schofield added. "Harry and Meghan are trying to slap some glitter on a lackluster brand. The Sussexes have developed a reputation for being difficult, unrealistic, and unproductive. A one-trick pony spilling the tea on Harry’s royal relatives."

Multiple other Hollywood insiders have called the pair's post-royal lives "weird" and "fake, in a plastic and creepy sort of way." For Prince Harry, whom one insider said, "needs to get a sense of humor and stat," post-2020 has been a "nonstop whine fest" as the Duke published the highly successful, yet incendiary memoir, Spare, in January 2023.

One commentator called Meghan Markle's 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey 'a huge mistake.'

With recent reports suggesting His Royal Highness wishes to "return to Britain," all eyes are focused on his Duchess and "where she plans to steer the Sussex trainwreck."

"If the media continues to remind the world that you’re drama... perception is reality," Schofield continued. "Meghan has become an extremely polarizing figure... I suspect she knows that she should never have sat down with Oprah Winfrey. That was the beginning of the end for a lot of people when it came to the War of the Windsors. It’s going to take more than a new pencil skirt to change people’s hearts and minds about Meghan Markle."

One prominent Hollywood source claimed that Meghan Markle is 'nearly at the Z-list' in Tinseltown.

2023 turned out to be a "nightmare" in terms of news for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, with the loss of their lucrative Spotify contract in June becoming "an overwhelming embarrassment" for the pair. One Tinseltown source said that the fallback from being labeled "f------ grifters" surrounding the deal cancellation sent Meghan into hiding "for months."

It was recently announced that the Suits star will attempt another podcast with Lemonada Media. The duo are also believed to be making content for their "thus far lackluster" Netflix contract as well.
