Amid Megxit and the completion of their final royal engagements, there has been a ton speculation about what Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry will do next. Though the Sussexes have made it clear that their charity work will continue, they are also seeking financial independence and will have to earn a living.
So far, the Sussexes have been frowned up for reportedly earning a $1 million paycheck from a speaking engagement in Miami on-behalf of JP Morgan. There have also been rumors about a possible tell-all book and the duchess’ return to Hollywood.
Now, there are whispers that Meghan is actually considering a documentary, but it’s not what you think.
Experts are urging Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to capitalize on their visibility
No matter what your personal opinion might be of them, everyone knows that the Sussexes’ presence in the British royal family brought a level of visibility that had not been seen since Princess Diana’s era.
Since the Sussexes are now tasked with earning their own living, many royal experts believe they need to strike when the iron is hot. Royal expert, Chris Ship believes the Duchess of Sussex will write a tell-all book or do a major interview. “If they want to achieve all the things they want to achieve, and I will come to that shortly, they need to capitalize on their current high profile,” he explained to ITV News. “Right now, it couldn’t be any higher. Here is an American woman, who in the space of less than two years, joined the Royal Family and then decided she wanted to leave it. That creates a huge amount of interest in this individual. Meghan could decide to tell all, to write a book, to do a big interview.”
However, considering the Sussexes respect for the queen we doubt an interview or book is in the works.
Meghan Markle may be headed back to Hollywood
After announcing Megxit, the duchess hired a Hollywood agent. She’s already snagged a voiceover role a Disney. However, her earnings will all go toward the charity Elephants Without Borders. It now appears that the duchess’ agent, Nick Collins of Hollywood’s Gersh Agency. is looking for even bigger roles for the former actress.
“She knows she can’t carry a film as an actress,” an alleged insider told Daily Mail. “People won’t be able to get past the fact she’s Meghan Markle. But she’s determined to act again and she thinks a big, ensemble film is the way to go… something that pays big but which doesn’t put her front and center.”
Meghan Markle might be considering a documentary
It may be more likely that the duchess will be combining her former career with her passion for helping others. “Meghan remains hugely ambitious and is very open-minded to a return to acting which is what she knows, loves and does best,” an alleged insider told The Sun. “Her preference is to explore the route of a documentary in which she is able to follow up some of the causes she is interested in. This wish has been the focus of some of her most recent meetings and will likely shape the kind of work the agent Meghan goes with seeks to get for her. She is very excited about what the future holds.”
