As Meghan Markle plans out her future role after stepping down as a senior working royal, it seems that a return to the world of showbiz in some capacity could be on the cards.
More than two years after giving up acting to marry Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex, 38, has been ‘actively looking’ for a manager or agent for future projects, a source told US Weekly.
Meghan, who is currently in Canada with her husband and their son Archie, quit her role in the US legal drama Suits in 2017 after becoming engaged to the Duke of Sussex, 35, and joining the Royal Family as a working member.
But the couple have since stepped back as senior royals as they ‘work to become financially independent’.

The source said: ‘Meghan is actively looking for representation. She has begun outreach.
‘It can be a manager or an agent, but she’s reaching out to people to find someone to represent her for future professional projects.’
FEMAIL has contacted Buckingham Palace for comment.
There has already been some indication that a return to her former career is on the cards for Meghan as the mother-of-one looks at various avenues for income.
She has already signed a voiceover deal with Disney in return for a donation to an elephant charity.

And in a moment that certainly raised eyebrows, the Duchess joked that she and Harry attended the premiere of The Lion King in London, to ‘pitch’ for work, footage from the 2019 event revealed.
The Duke was also filmed touting his wife’s voiceover skills to Disney boss Bob Iger at the occasion in July.
It came just months before Meghan was hired by the entertainment giant to work on a Disney project in exchange for a donation to the charity Elephants Without Borders.
Last week, sources revealed Harry and Meghan’s hopes to make a fortune with their own film and television production company after their dramatic break from the Royal Family.

The couple plan to make a living by providing voiceovers and producing documentaries on ‘worthy’ issues such as mental health and climate change.
And they have received an early boost after a senior Netflix executive said the streaming giant would like to work with them.
Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos said at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 19 that the streaming giant would like to work with Harry and Meghan, adding: ‘Who wouldn’t be interested? Yes, sure.’
Following Megxit, it was announced that Harry and Meghan will no longer use their HRH titles and will repay around £2.4 million of taxpayers’ money spent refurbishing their Frogmore Cottage.

At a charity event for his charity Sentabale, Harry spoke of his ‘great sadness’ at leaving the Royal Family and said he and his wife had ‘no other option’ than to quit senior royal duties – but vowed the couple are ‘not just walking away’.
Last week, a friend of the duchess told DailyMail.com that Meghan had informed close friends quitting the royal family is the best thing that could ever happen to Prince Harry and said ‘it was her love for him that made this possible’.
‘She said that like her, his spirit was being crushed and she simply couldn’t stand to see him suffer anymore,’ the friend added.
Meghan and Harry also have no intention of stripping the word ‘royal’ from their SussexRoyal website and Instagram account according to the insider, who added: ‘Meghan says they will always be considered royalty regardless of where they live or what they do.’
