5 Big Reasons Meghan Markle Could Make a Surprise Appearance on Sunday’s Golden Globes, Starting with Oprah


Could Meghan Markle be headed to the Golden Globes?

If the Globes could pull off a Markle appearance, the probability of big ratings would be front and center.

There are a few reasons for the former British Duchess could show up on the CBS show.

Reason number 1: a “Suits” reunion with actors Patrick J. Adams and Gabriel Macht. The two men are already advertised as presenters. Adding Markle would be the cherry on the sundae.

Number 2: Oprah. Markle and Prince Harry had their famous interview with her on CBS. Oprah is coming, and the reasons are weird. Maybe a Markle connection is the reason.

Number 3: Netflix. A “Suits” reunion would be great for the already booming ratings for the former USA Network law soap opera. It’s possible they could weight in on Markle joining the proceedings.

Number 4: An in-kind donation from one of these entities to Markle and Prince Harry’s Archewell Foundation. Archewell needs the dough, and a donation could come from the Globes 501c3, CBS, or Netflix. This would be a motivating feature.

Number 5: The Globes and Markle share a publicist in the great Keleigh Morgan of Sunshine Sachs. The firm just returned to the Globes, and Morgan was Markle’s publicist until a couple of years ago.
