Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are busy carving out a new life for themselves in the City of Stars. At least, they’re living on someone else’s dime in someone else’s mansion in LA, anyway. Now, the Duke and Duchess have reportedly managed to bag the help of Rebecca Mostow.
Mostow might look like your average woman, but she’s a 70-year-old celebrity whizz. Rebecca has already proved she’s a dab hand at helping a British couple adjust to life in Los Angeles. Victoria and David Beckham hired her to get them used to the American life when they skipped England in 2007.
For all intents and purposes, Rebecca has the kind of resume you’d want from an assistant. She’s used to being in the inner sanctum of celebrities, but is hiring her just another desperate attempt to look the part?
It’s been a few months now since Meghan and Harry announced their desire to leave Britain behind. After bouncing around Canada, they’ve landed in LA. But, where is this ever-elusive financial independence they talk of?
Despite numerous reports of the Sussexes eyeing up properties to buy, they’re shacked up in Tyler Perry’s mansion. Are they paying rent? Unlikely, as the arrangement was set up by their mutual friend, Oprah. Plus, Perry has expressed his sympathy for how Meghan has been “treated” since she married into The Firm. He even flew them in on his $150 million private jet.
Meghan and Harry have a combined net worth of around $30 million. This lifestyle of living in a home that usually costs $200,000 a month to rent isn’t going to be sustainable. Charity is all well and good, but it won’t be long before patience wears thin. Let’s face it, they can’t afford the lifestyle they want to lead right now. So, why have they hired an assistant like Mostow?
It’s all smoke and mirrors. It’s part of the great ploy, the great facade. Everything is crumbling on the inside. But, Meghan seems to think that if you put on a pair of Louboutins and hire a well-known assistant, then the deception will turn into a reality.
It’s clear that both Harry and Meghan have jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire. Every single move they make at the moment is an attempt to be something that they’re not. Harry, for his part, looks like a lost little boy navigating a world he has no idea how to handle.
Even Meghan, the cold, calculating seductress, is grasping at straws to find a way to keep this fantasy alive. Is Rebecca Mostow the key to gaining the trust of Hollywood’s elite? Or, will she just end up on the long list of people used and abused by a Z-list actress that married a prince?
