Meghan Markle May Ultimately Cause ‘Immense Embarrassment’ for the Royal Family, Expert Claims
Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex have left the royal family for a chance to live a normal life out of the spotlight. Many royal fans have wondered what’s next for the Sussexes and whether or not Meghan will return to her pre-duchess career as an actress. If she does pursue that career again, one royal expert believes it could be an “immense embarrassment” to the royal family.
Meghan had left her acting career to marry Prince Harry
When Prince Harry and Meghan announced their engagement in November 2017, she shared that she would be leaving behind her acting career.
“I just see it as a change… It’s a new chapter, right?,” she shared during an interview at the time. “And also keep in mind I’ve been working on my show for seven years. So we were very, very fortunate to be able to have that sort of longevity on a series, and for me once we hit the 100 episode marker I thought, you know what, I have — I have ticked this box and I feel really proud of the work I have done there and now it’s time to, as you said work — work as a team with [Harry].”
Meghan continued: “I think what’s been really exciting as we talk about the transition of this out of my career, but into the role, is that, as you said, the causes that have been very important to me I can focus even more energy on, because very early out of the gate I think you realize once you have access or a voice that people are going to listen to, with that comes a lot of responsibility which I take seriously.”
Meghan’s return to acting might be an ’embarrassment’ according to one expert
It’s unclear whether or not Meghan will return to her acting career following her exit from the royal family, though there have been rumors that she could do more voiceover work for Disney.
Eric Schiffer, chairman of Reputation Management Consultant, believes that if Meghan relaunches her acting career, she could create “immense embarrassment” to the queen and the royal family.
“Meghan will pursue acting causing immense embarrassment for the Royal family and drive more public backlash,” Schiffer told Express.
He added, “Hollywood in the end will dump Meghan and chew her out the way she and Buckingham Palace ditched each other.”
Does she have regrets about giving up her career?
Meghan’s acting resume includes appearances on General Hospital, Century City, The War at Home, and CSI: New York. She was also a “briefcase babe” on Deal or No Deal before finding fame on the legal drama Suits.
Sally Bedell Smith, the Queen’s biographer, believes that Meghan may have felt regret about retiring from acting. “It seems now that she really regrets having had to give that up,” Bedell Smith told Vanity Fair, sharing, “and what she was expected to do in the royal family didn’t compare with what she had been accustomed to.”
Bedell Smith further noted that joining the royal family means you give up “a lot of things that may have meant a lot to you and dedicate yourself to an institution that’s 1,000 years old.”
