While the Royal Family gets started on its busy week in the UK, there has been some confusion across the pond about the former members of The Firm who now dwell in California.
Meghan Markle had been announced to appear on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show in an apparent mix-up by TV network NBC.
In a statement on the network’s website, it was claimed the Duchess of Cambridge would appear on the entertainment show on December 7 – but this claim was quickly disputed by Meghan’s pal Omid Scobie.
The journalist took to Twitter to confirm Meghan would NOT be appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s show and that someone at NBC ‘didn’t get the memo’.
NBC later told dailymail.com the announcement was made in error, and confirmed the Duchess was not scheduled to appear.
