The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has signed with William Morris Endeavor (WME), a major Hollywood talent agency that represents high-profile clients such as Serena Williams and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
According to Variety, WME will represent Archewell, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s content creation label, for film and television production rather than relaunching Meghan’s acting career.
Meghan starred in the television series Suits before marrying into the royal family, and in a 2022 Variety cover shoot, she stated that she was not planning to return to acting.
The news of Meghan’s signing with WME comes after she and Prince Harry were spotted enjoying a night at a basketball game.
Meghan and Harry were seen at the Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena, with Meghan giggling when she noticed they were being filmed and playfully grabbing Harry’s arm as he leaned in for a kiss.
While Prince Harry will attend the coronation of King Charles on May 6, it has been confirmed that Meghan will not be present.
Their eldest child, Archie, turns four on the same day.
The news of Meghan’s signing with WME is not surprising, given her background in the entertainment industry and her passion for producing.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made it clear that they intend to use their platform to produce content that inspires and educates, with their production company, Archewell, focusing on creating uplifting and impactful programming.
Meghan’s signing with WME indicates that the couple is serious about their commitment to content creation, and that they are seeking to work with industry professionals to bring their ideas to life.
Meghan’s decision to not return to acting is also not unexpected, as she has previously stated that she is focused on using her platform for philanthropic work and content creation.
It is likely that Meghan’s role with WME will be more focused on producing rather than acting, as she has already established herself as a successful producer with her Netflix documentary, Elephant.
Overall, Meghan’s signing with WME is a significant step for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as it demonstrates their commitment to using their platform to create positive change and inspire others through content creation.
