The Duchess of Sussex, 40, who worked as an actress prior to joining the Royal Family, is reportedly planning a return to her former career. Prior to her 2018 marriage to Prince Harry, 37, Meghan found fame as an actress in popular US legal drama Suits.
For seven years, Meghan played the role of Rachel Zane, who worked at a large legal firm in New York.
Her character began as a paralegal and eventually became an attorney, and Meghan’s storyline in the show ended with her character marrying Mike Ross, played by Patrick J Adams.
Meghan stepped away from acting duties when she took on responsibilities as a Royal Family member.
She instead supported the royals’ charitable initiatives and participated in a number of royal appearances and trips.

However, following her and her husband Harry’s step away from the monarchy last year, royal biographer Angela Levin has claimed Meghan may return to her acting life once again.
In early 2020, a source told Mail On Sunday that her agent, Nick Collins, was actively looking for a superhero role for the Duchess.
At the time, the source claimed: “He has said she wants her return to acting to be part of an ensemble cast in something like a superhero film.
“He’s actively seeking such a movie for her. He’s saying she is available and open to the best offers.

“Meghan is planning a series of meetings in Hollywood. She has already done the voiceover for Disney and now word is out that she’s looking for a superhero film, as a voiceover or even on screen.”
A source told author Angela Levin that this option may still be on the cards.
Ms Levin told the Sun Online: “I heard that Meghan had gone back on saying that she’s not going back to doing acting.
“She wants to be the star of a superhero in a film.”

In a statement for the New York Times, the couple said: “Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.
“As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us.”
Earlier this year, their first collaboration with the streaming giant was revealed – a series, titled Heart of Invictus, which showcases Prince Harry’s Invictus Games.
The games are an international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, both serving and veterans.
According to a Netflix press release, the episodes “will follow a group of extraordinary competitors from around the globe, all service members who have suffered life-changing injuries or illnesses on their road to the Invictus Games The Hague 2020, now set to take place in 2022.”
