Royal mom to be Meghan Markle is returning to the big screen, but in a way that you may have not expected.
Back in 2011, Meghan was in a film called “The Boys And Girls Guide To Getting Down” which followed a group of singles as they partied in Los Angeles.
Fast forward to 2019 and Meghan, no longer a single woman and about to give birth to the first mixed-race royal baby and her film is being re-released.
It’s being reported that the film was picked up by Artist Rights Distribution for North America and will be released later this year.
This is not the only thing that is getting Meghan back to her background of acting. The Queen has assigned Meghan the role to take on new patronage supporting the National Theatre.
With this new duty, Meghan is closer to show business than she’s been since her marriage into the royal family.
Leading royal historian Robert Lacey believes Meghan’s patronage of the theater presents fascinating opportunities for the former Suits star.
It “is a canny and shrewd [assignment] on the Queen’s part,” Lacey, a consultant for the Netflix smash The Crown, said in a statement.
“If Meghan is ever missing the excitement of acting, this will put her back in touch with show business in a very creative way. It is tailor-made for her and she will throw herself into it.”
Lacey said he believes the royal mom-to-be might even take an active part at some point: “I can see her getting involved with productions or even directing something.”
While we are unsure if Meghan or her royal baby will be participating in any shows, one thing for sure is that she could be a major influence for production.
“The National Theatre has quite a radical record of tackling the difficult social issues of the moment and for innovating new plays and productions — so that might be an area where she might add her influence,” Lacey added
