Soon after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex relinquished their royal duties, they signed a multi-million-pound deal with streaming giant Netflix. Up until May, Meghan served as an executive producer on the family-friendly, animated series ‘Pearl’, but amid widespread cost-cutting moves, the programme was axed. The couple’s contract with the streaming service remains and it is understood that they have other projects in the works.
The Duchess is well-versed in the world of Hollywood, having upheld an acting career for over 15 years. Her career began when she was just 11 years old; she made her first television appearance speaking out against a “sexist” Procter & Gamble commercial for Ivory dishwasher soap. In the years that followed, she appeared in the music video for Tori Amos’ 1999 hit song ‘1000 Oceans’ and worked at a frozen yoghurt shop.
In 2002, she secured her first official acting credit as Nurse Jill, a small role in ‘General Hospital’ — the TV show her father, Thomas Markle, worked on as a lighting director. Throughout the Noughties, Meghan landed a number of one-off roles on shows like ‘CSI’, ‘The League’, and ‘Knight Rider’, as well as a recurring role on ‘90210’.
It wasn’t until 2011 that the actress got her ‘big break’ when she earned her role as Rachel Zane in the legal drama ‘Suits’. From 2011 to 2018, Meghan was a recurring character in the hit TV show.
