The Duchess of Sussex has been notably quiet during the past few months

Meghan Markle has been backed to break her silence soon as she builds a powerful inner circle.

The Duchess of Sussex is said to be forming a new social group, which a PR expert believes is a sign that we will see more of her.

A showbiz PR expert said: "Meghan has been uncharacteristically quiet in the public domain. But she has powerful new friends, so don't expect the silence to last long."

Meghan and Harry have drifted from many of their former famous friends, including Victoria and David Beckham.

It’s also not just PR experts that believe Meghan is close to announcing something exciting and stepping back into the spotlight.

Royal expert told the Express: “It's unclear, at the moment, what the Sussexes plan to do. Don't forget they have always had the capacity to surprise. Well, having said that, it simply isn't clear. I'm surprised there hasn't been an initiative [so far].”

The couple’s inner circle has shrunk dramatically in recent years.

It used to a be made up of a wide range of celebrities, from fashion designers to socialites.

However, their ties to the Beckham’s, in particular, appeared to have waned.

The royal couple were not guests at the wedding of the Beckham’s son Brooklyn to US heiress Nicola Peltz in April last year.

They have also been absent from some of the biggest celebrity events of the year, including Lionel Messi’s debut for David’s Inter Miami football team last weekend.

Meghan also no longer regularly speaks to her childhood best friend, Ninaki Priddy.

Insiders say that the Duchess is focusing on her family rather than the spotlight, but she is also signed up with a top talent agency.

The former actress saw success in the popular legal drama Suits, and many fans hoped she would be returning to her acting career.

The couple’s Spotify podcast Archetypes was called off after her and Harry’s multimillion pound deal with the streaming service was cancelled.
