Meghan Markle could win an Emmy after being put forward for award

Meghan could be in the running for an Emmy – after being put forward for an award for her final season of the legal drama.

The former actress, 36, could be nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category, for her role as Rachel Zane.

A representative for the USA Network has confirmed that the Duchess of Sussex has been put forward for consideration in the category.

Meghan has not previously won any major awards for her role in Suits, meaning this will be her last chance to pick up a prestigious gong.
