Her makeup artist Daniel Martin and actress Jessica Alba were seen defending Meghan in the doco, which was hosted by Gayle King – Oprah Winfrey’s best friend.
“Our belief is Meghan has been aware of this TV project for at least the last month and hoped that certain allies and friends spoke out,” a source told The Sun.
“She wants her case put on US TV in the strongest possible fashion.
“Meghan believes she is her own best PR.”
“She even met with Gayle to discuss the show days before she went into labour,” the source added.
According to source Meghan’s involvement with the documentary concerned other Royal Family members, after they had thought she’d lay low in the months following little Archie’s arrival.
“Senior members of the Royal Family raised eyebrows about this.
“This is the way a Hollywood celebrity acts, not someone married to an heir to the throne.”
The source’s comments about Meg’s involvement were all but confirmed when a CBS insider told The Sun that some of the guest interviewees received “the blessing of Meghan” prior to taking part.
