Elizabeth Cundy, 49, purports to be a former friend of the Duchess of Sussex. She spoke to the media earlier this week claiming Meghan had “ghosted” her after asking for help in finding a British hunk.
Ms Cundy said: “She told me she wanted to be on an English reality TV show and that she wanted an English boyfriend.
“She set her sights on Made In Chelsea and worked hard to get in with that crowd.
“She said that she could only be in Suits for so long and that Hollywood was a really brutal place.
“She had not made a breakthrough, and said she would feel at home in London.”
In June 2016 Meghan came to London for a trip with friends.

Of the period Ms Cundy told MailOnline: “By now she had become friends with the Made In Chelsea set and she was hoping to get a role on the show. She was close to show stars, Millie Mackintosh and Jessica Woodley.”
The former WAG also told ITV This Morning on Friday she almost “set Meghan up” with former Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole.
She told Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford: “We got on like a house on fire.
“She was so funny, really loved London and she wanted to find a boyfriend.
“I did actually say, ‘Do you like footballers?’

“So I gave her my phone and Ashley Cole, because he’d just split up with Cheryl and they look kind of similar.
“I was getting that together, I was making the call to Ashley. He was like, ‘Who is she?’”
But the Duchess was reportedly quick to dismiss the idea after she discovered Cole’s reputation for promiscuity.
It was also claimed this week the former Suits star “flirted” with X-Factor winner Matt Cardle before her whirlwind romance with Prince Harry.
A source said: “Matt followed Meghan initially in early 2015 because he thought she was a beautiful star from Suits.
“But he was stunned when she followed him immediately back and started messaging him.
“She said she was a big fan of his work.”
