"From what I understand, I think Meghan will take on Martha Stewart, Gwyneth Paltrow and Ina Garten and play them at their own game," an insider told an outlet.

"She would have to be relatable and natural, the way Drew Barrymore is, it can’t feel contrived or like she’s acting," they added.

Though the TV star's blog The Tig shut down in 2017, she launched her new brand American Riviera Orchard earlier this year by gifting jars of jams to friends and celebrities like Chrissy Teigen.

While there's plenty of buzz about Meghan's company, former Snapchat executive Rachel Richardson believes Meghan will have to be more open about her personal life if she wants to follow in Paltrow's footsteps.

"The reason Martha, Joanna [Gaines] and Gwyneth have crushed it is because they’ve let viewers into their most private spaces and shared their biggest secrets. Authenticity is key in the lifestyle arena and those that succeed tend to be willing to share their whole lives," Richardson explained to a news outlet. "Think about it — what do we not know about Gwyneth Paltrow?"

"In Harry and Meghan and the Oprah [Winfrey] interview, Meghan let cameras capture some aspects of her private life," the expert elaborated. "But to pull off a successful lifestyle show she’ll have to be prepared to swing the door all the way open."

However, doing so could further the divide between the Sussexes and Harry's family, as "any exploitation of her title, coat of arms etc. will cause friction with the palace. It’s very much frowned upon to exploit royal status for commercial gain," she added.
