Meghan Markle's 'dream' is to win an Oscar from her Sh14.3billion Netflix deal, her pal claims. A friend of the Duchess of Sussex reportedly said the gong is 'all she's ever wanted', claiming the former actress used to practise her acceptance speech in front of the mirror. Her hopes of winning the award have been raised by her and Prince Harry's latest deal, which will see them produce 'inspirational' programmes for Netflix.

The pal reportedly added that Meghan's 'absolute dream' is to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award, which combined are known as 'the EGOT'. It comes after Barack and Michelle Obama's Netflix deal won them an Oscar for their documentary American Factory. Meghan's friend told the Mail on Sunday: "An Oscar is all Meg has ever wanted. She used to practise her acceptance speech in the mirror with a hairbrush when she was a kid of seven.

"She would also practise her signature in preparation for all the autographs she would give.

"Her absolute dream was to achieve the EGOT – the grand slam of showbusiness – which is winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award."

The couple reportedly plan to create a range of documentaries including a animated show on inspirational women, the Sun reports. According to the paper, Harry and Meghan’s spokeswoman said: "The focus will be on creating a wide-range of programmes about stories and issues that resonate with them personally – including highlighting issues that their non-profit (company) Archewell is focused on.
