When Meghan Markle started dating Prince Harry in 2016, she attracted global attention. However, she was already well-known in her own right. She was best known for playing Rachel Zane in the legal drama series, Suits. Before quitting acting to marry into the royal family, she played the role for seven seasons between 2011 and 2018.
Many fans are unaware of Markle’s lengthy acting career. The mother of two has appeared in films like Get Him to the Greek, Horrible Bosses, and CSI: Miami and Castle.
After getting married in 2018, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made an effort to remain in the UK to carry out their royal duties. Since then, the couple has carved out a successful career in Hollywood, which has raised the question of whether The Duchess of Sussex would consider going back into acting.
Well, recently, the Dater’s Handbook actress has reportedly signed a representation contract with one of Hollywood’s greatest agencies, WME.

Meghan Markle Appoints WME To Represent Her In Her Business
Meghan Markle has joined William Morris Endeavor (WME), the talent agency that counts Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, tennis player, Serena Williams, and a long list of other A-List celebrities among its clients.
The mother of two is reportedly resuming her career in entertainment, three years after she and her husband, Prince Harry, decided to step down from their responsibilities as senior royals of the UK. Despite her prior experience on screen, acting won’t be the “main” focus, according to Variety. Markle was part of several hit movies before she got married.
The WME team for Markle will also include Brad Slater, Jill Smoller, and Ari Emanuel (CEO of Endeavor). For the unversed, the team also represents Markle’s best friend, Serena Williams.
Markle has been keeping a low profile as King Charles III’s coronation draws near, so the news of her representation by WME is surprising.
WME will support the development of her business ventures in a variety of industries, such as film and television production, brand alliances, and more. Additionally, the agency will represent Markle’s content-creation company, Archewell, which she and her husband, Prince Harry had founded.

Is Meghan Markle Making a Comeback To Hollywood?
Given Meghan Markle’S extensive Hollywood resume, this might open the door for her to resume her acting career. However, for the time being, the partnership will mainly focus on “film and television production, brand partnerships, and overall business-building,” according to Variety.
In other words, even though we might not get to see a royal cameo on White Lotus the following season, maybe this will open the door for her to start a fashion campaign, among other business ventures.
Given that the coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla is just a few days away, the timing of Markle’s WME announcement is certain to draw criticism.
Since retiring as the senior working members of the royal family in 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have both been actively seeking out business opportunities.
Notably, the couple reportedly signed deals with Penguin Random House, Netflix, and Spotify. In addition, they produced the podcast, Archetypes, the Duke’s record-breaking memoir, Spare, and their docuseries, Harry and Meghan.
