Get excited, reality TV junkies, for you shall soon have a new celeb family to spy on, as Britain’s Channel 4 is currently developing a fly-on-the-wall show that will delve into the life of Prince Harry’s latest love interest, Meghan Markle.
But before you get too excited, no, the brunette beauty will not be starring in the show. Instead, Meet the Markles will use use genealogical research to trace her ancestry, and document the actress’s life from early childhood to her breakout role in US TV show Suits by running candid interviews with the 35-year old’s family and friends. Each episode will be an hour in length and is rumoured to air later this year. The news comes a few months after it was reported that Markle’s estranged sister, Samantha Grant, is writing a ‘tell all’ book, in which she details what it was like growing up with the Suit’s star as a child.
A source told The Sun, “Meghan is a hot topic right now and everyone is interested in her. Channel 4 are going to go deeper into her past than anyone before. They want to discover new things about her family. It could be dramatic. Meet the Markles tells the story of some of Meghan’s ancestors and how she and Harry met. The film also considers her possible future role in the royal family.”
Fans of the couple have taken to social media, slamming the British media for such an intrusive show choice.

What's even sadder is that they are being paid. An act of true brutality on an innocent woman. Unwanted.— BlueberryWire09 (@Jmonter22943450) June 28, 2017
