Meghan Markle Is Actively Looking for an Agent and Manager

In the wake of stepping down as a working member of the British royal family, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex is eager to get back to work. Prior to marrying Prince Harry in May 2018 — the Los Angeles native was a working actress with a starring role on the hit USA drama series, Suits.

In addition to her work in Hollywood — Markle was also an activist, a writer/editor for her lifestyle blog, The Tig and an ambassador for several conscious brands. However, when she and the prince got engaged in November 2017 — Markle closed the door on personal career.

Now that the Sussexes have decided they want to become financially independent and work for themselves outside of the British royal family — the duchess is eager to get back to work.

Spotlight on: The Hubb Community Kitchen It was just one year ago that The Duchess of Sussex made a special visit to the women of The Hubb Community Kitchen to help prepare meals for those in need. The connection between The Duchess and these women began a year prior, as she supported them in the creation of “Together”, a charity cookbook which celebrates the power of cooking to bring communities together. The cookbook showcases recipes from women whose community was affected by the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire in London. Their incredible stories and personal recipes placed “Together” on The New York Times Bestseller List and The Sunday Times Booklist. Today, the women at the Hubb Community Kitchen continue to have a positive impact in their community, across the UK, and around the world. Whether it’s providing a safe space for women and children to come for a hot meal, supporting local schools, serving free lunches to senior citizens, partnering with the Red Cross to provide lunches for refugees, or feeding the homeless – the Hubb helps and heals through their support and sustenance. Thank you, ladies, for the leadership and inspiration that your cooking and love of community brings to all those around you. We remain so very proud of the good work that you continue to do, and cannot wait to see what 2020 brings! Photo © PA / Hubb Kitchen / Jenny Zarin

This is what Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will do for work

Markle has already signed a voiceover deal with Disney. However, that paycheck is expected to go to the Elephants Without Borders charity. Still, now that she and the duke are free agents — media companies like Netflix and ABC are eager to get them into meetings.

Though they are adamant about respecting the crown, the sky is the limit for what the Sussexes may want to do next with their Sussex Royal brand. “We could easily compare them to any former presidents,” Royal commentator and author Kristen Meinzer explained to Business Insider. “My mind keeps going to Barack and Michelle Obama and how [they] make money. The reason I compare the two is that they’re already friends with each other and I would put them on the same level in terms of fame.”

It was just last September that we launched the ‘Together’ cookbook with the women of the Hubb Kitchen in Grenfell. Today, a year later, I am excited to celebrate the launch of another initiative of women supporting women, and communities working together for the greater good. Thank you to the four brands who came together in supporting Smart Works on this special project – placing purpose over profit and community over competition. In convening several companies rather than one, we’ve demonstrated how we can work collectively to empower each other – another layer to this communal success story, that I am so proud to be a part of” – The Duchess of Sussex The collection – which features a shirt, trousers, blazer, dress and tote bag – will be on sale for two weeks starting today, with the objective of selling enough units to give Smart Works the essentials they need to help dress clients for the coming year! For every item bought during the sale of the collection, one will be donated to Smart Works, this 1:1 model allows customers to directly support the Smart Works women by playing a part in their success story – how they look and more importantly, how they feel.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are worth $30 million

Though they will no longer be supported by Queen Elizabeth II — the Sussexes aren’t exactly leaving the U.K. without a dime to their name. Together, they have a combined net worth of $30 million.

When Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot they decided to forgo a prenuptial agreement and simply combine their wealth. Prince Harry is worth $25 million, a combination of inheritance from Princess Diana and an annual allowance from Prince Charles. In contrast, Markle is worth $5 million from her past acting work and endorsements.

Meghan Markle is actively looking for an agent and a manager

It looks like Markle is thinking about returning to her acting roots. “Meghan is actively looking for representation. She has begun outreach,” a source tells Us Weekly. “It can be a manager or an agent, but she’s reaching out to people to find someone to represent her for future professional projects.”

Markle probably won’t return to TV, but this is a way for her to seek out projects inlined with her and the duke’s charitable effotts while earning a living.

“She doesn’t come from millions,” an insider told US Weekly. “She’s worked hard to get to where she is today. Meghan loves the idea of being the breadwinner. She has no plans to do another show like Suits, but Harry’s been encouraging her to do more voice-over work, writing, producing and directing in her free time.”
