Meghan Markle was once turned down when trying to appear on a late-night chat show to promote the second season of Suits.

The Duchess of Sussex, 41, wanted to get a spot on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live while appearing in the US series, but was refused by the show's bosses.

Meghan had been desperate to appear on the programme as she was a huge fan of The Real Housewives franchise, of which Andy, 54, is the co-executive producer of.

During the latest episode of her podcast Archetypes, Meghan met with Andy, telling him: "I was so eager to be on your show because I was such a Housewives fan at the time and I just couldn't get booked, Andy! So thanks for being here with me."

Andy said: "You know what's so funny, I had that feeling when we started to forensically figure out if it was you because we had a sense.

"We kind of put it together a little, we were like, 'I think she may be a Housewives fan but even worse Andy, we think we didn't have her on the show'," adding: "It is now the biggest blunder in the 13 years of the show, so it's a great story."

Meghan responded that she hadn't wanted to "embarrass" him, but "thought it was funny to try and remember how things were".

The talk show host quizzed Meghan on whether she still watched any of the Real Housewives programmes, with her saying: "I stopped watching the Housewives when my life had its own level of drama that I stopped craving…" with Cohen interjecting "other people's" and Meghan agreeing.

Andy said there had been speculation of Meghan joining the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast when she moved back to the US.

She commented: "I never heard that… you mean really this is my audition for Real Housewives in Montecito?" Andy joked: "You don’t have to audition. We’ll build the show around you."

"There will be no reality show", Meghan said laughing, with Andy replying: "I know, I know."
