Meghan Markle is to have "unparalleled stardom" after leaving the the royal family, according to a royal expert.
Having left the Firm and having their bid to become 'part-time royals' rejected, the couple has abandoned normal regal duties in favour of multi-million-pound Netflix and book deals and breaking the internet with shocking tell-all interviews.
And one royal expert claims this has set former actress Meghan up for an unprecedented level of fame and fortune.

Speaking during the groundbreaking 2021 Channel 5 documentary, 'Harry & Meghan Vs The Monarchy', royal author Dylan Howard revealed: "They’ve created a new standard, and that is one to exploit themselves for profit.
"Meghan is creating a new form of celebrity for herself by securing deals with media conglomerates in the tens and hundreds of millions of dollars.
"It sets her on a path to unparalleled stardom."
Prince Harry and Meghan, who now live in an £11 million mansion in Montecito, California, signed huge deals with Spotify and Netflix in 2020.
The pair hope to create "content that informs but also gives hope" with Netflix, and upcoming projects supposedly including a documentary about the Invictus Games – founded by Harry in 2014 – and a reality-style show following the couple's post-royalty life.
A children's series which had Meghan at the helm as executive producer was axed earlier this year.

The Duke and Duchess' Spotify deal was also set to produce podcasts promoting "diverse and inspiring voices" under the couple's brand Archewell Audio.
Meghan is also set to launch her own podcast series, 'Archetypes', which will see the former Suits star speaking to historians, experts and women who have experienced being typecast.
However, despite the deals having been drawn up two years ago, critics have noticed they've seen little content produced by the couple and their brand.
No announcements have been made about Meghan's series since the trailer was released in April, and it was reported earlier this year that Spotify was taking the couple's deal into its own hands.
A source close to the Duchess of Sussex says there's more work going on beneath the surface than it may seem and that Meghan is 'throwing herself into work on her podcast.'
The source also claims Meghan is creating a lavish life in Montecito, earning her the nickname ‘The Princess of Montecito’.
"There’s a lot more going on in Meghan’s world than people think," the source revealed, "she just keeps it very private these days but her royal status gives her a lot of leverage.
"She spends most of her time in Montecito, but she heads into LA every week or so."
