Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, was a popular actress in the TV world during her seven-season run on lawyer sitcom Suits. But when she married Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, she left her previous career behind to focus on being a working royal and on her charitable endeavours. Following the announcement the pair would be stepping back from their duties as working royals at the beginning of this year and splitting their time between North America and the UK, it was reported the actress was pushing to get involved with new projects - notably on a Disney and Marvel film.
