No thanks. Meghan Markle “would never do a reality show or star in a soap opera,” a source tells In Touch exclusively, despite some previous reports to the contrary. However, the insider adds that “she and Prince Harry are discussing setting up their own production company” instead.
On February 1, a report claimed the Duchess of Sussex, 38, was going to be on a new Netflix show, I Do, Redo, about second weddings with her friend Jessica Mulroney. Jessica’s husband, Ben Mulroney, denied the rumors on Twitter. “I’ll say this as clearly as I can,” he wrote. “Meghan Markle is not appearing now was she ever set to appear on my wife’s show.”
However, there may be some projects from Meghan and her royal husband in the future. Meghan, of course, was an actress before she ever met and married Prince Harry, 35. It should come as no surprise she might want to return to the industry in some capacity now that the couple is stepping back from some of their royal duties.
The duo took to Instagram on January 8 to reveal plans to take a step back from royal life and become “financially independent.” Almost a week after Meghan and Prince Harry announced their intentions for their future, Queen Elizabeth II spoke out about where things stood. “Today, my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family,” a statement from the 93-year-old queen read on January 13.
An additional statement from the Queen, which was posted on Harry and Meghan’s joint Instagram account on January 18, noted that she supports their future endeavors. “I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family,” it read. “Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family.”
As In Touch previously reported, Meghan and Prince Harry are tired of royal protocol and ready to try something new. For one thing, the Suits alum was over the royal dress code. “The Queen is very traditional and prefers female members of the family to wear a skirt or dress below the knee when seen in public,” an insider told In Touch exclusively in January. “As a modern-day woman, Meghan hated this protocol and thinks it’s sexist.”
It will be interesting to see exactly how Meghan and Prince Harry break out of their traditional roles in the future.
