Years before she tied the knot with Prince Harry and began her royal duties as the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan was pursuing a career in acting, during which she starred in a film called The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down.
Now, nearly eight years after its initial release, the film has been picked up by Artist Rights Distribution for North America, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Though she hasn’t been able to keep up with acting since becoming engaged and married to Prince Harry, things may change soon for Meghan, who recently announced the new patronages she’ll be supporting in her royal work, including one with the National Theatre.
With her new royal role — handed down from Queen Elizabeth — Meghan could land back in show business, according to leading royal historian Robert Lacey, who believes her patronage of the theatre presents fascinating opportunities for the former Suits star.
Meghan Markle could use her new royal role — recently handed down from Queen Elizabeth — to land back in show business.
That’s the opinion of royal historian Robert Lacey, who says Meghan’s new patronage of the National Theatre — among four key causes and organisations she’ll be backing as Duchess of Sussex — presents fascinating opportunities for the former Suits star.
It “is a canny and shrewd [assignment] on the Queen’s part. If Meghan is ever missing the excitement of acting, this will put her back in touch with show business in a very creative way. It is tailor-made for her and she will throw herself into it.”
He believes the royal mom-to-be, 37, might even take an active part at some point: “I can see her getting involved with productions or even directing something.”
Could she even return to acting? “It’s not out of the question that we’d see a member of the royal family performing on the stage of the National Theatre one day.”
“The National Theatre has quite a radical record of tackling the difficult social issues of the moment and for innovating new plays and productions — so that might be an area where she might add her influence,” Lacey adds.
