The Duchess of Sussex was previously an actress, rising to stardom in the TV legal drama Suits, and influential agent-producer Jonathan Shalit has claimed Meghan could earn $50million (£37million) if she decided to act again. However, royal commentator Russell Myers claimed Meghan has gone beyond acting now and will want to be pitching ideas and executive producing on big Hollywood projects. In fact, it was reported last week that Meghan and Harry had pitched a TV show that would focus on two issues close to Meghan’s heart: female empowerment and racial inequality.
The TV show, which was pitched to a string of network executives in June, would tackle dscrimination like that faced by Meghan herself, who is biracial.
A TV insider claimed: “They have suggested a series focusing on the empowerment of women and young girls in today’s world.
“It will home in on race issues, something Meghan has always been passionate about.
“It’s got quite a political stance and will draw on feminism. They want the series to continue their vision of empowerment for young people.”

According to the Daily Mirror, the couple intend on being joint producers on the project.
Sources told the outlet that the couple “will appear in it but it’s about ‘normal’ people, not them”.
Pod Save the Queen is hosted by Ann Gripper and features Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers.
Mr Myers said he thinks we will be seeing more of this behind-the-camera sort of work, rather than Meghan going back in front of the camera.
