Meghan Markle would not have had to stop playing to become a member of the royal family.
In an interview with Royally Obsessed, Princess Diana’s biographer Andrew Morton claimed that Queen Elizabeth told Markle she could continue her acting career after her marriage to Prince Harry.
“They said to Meghan: ‘If you don’t want to take on full-time royal duties, be our guest and continue your acting career.’ These opportunities were open to him, ”he said.
“The Queen gave them the opportunity to go wherever they wanted,” Morton told the podcast. “They were given some leeway. They were told, ‘Here are your first class tickets, choose which country you want to go to, we will make you young ambassadors of the Commonwealth.’
Markle starred in the hit USA Network Suits drama until 2018, when she married Harry. The show continued for a season after he left, before ending in 2019.
During Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Prince Harry and Markle, Harry admitted that at the start of their relationship, the Royal Family said that Markle should continue his acting career “because there is no did not have enough money to pay her “.
Morton is not the only one talking to the press about Meghan Markle, however.
Controversial TV personality Piers Morgan has repeatedly criticized Markle, most recently about his interview with Winfrey. Last month he was fired from his hosting post on Good Morning Britain for his harsh comments on Markle.
Now he claims some royals privately praised him for his overly critical comments.
“Messages have been communicated to me on behalf of several members of the royal family,” Morgan told Extra. “I’m not going to get into who it was, but what I would say is, [they expressed] gratitude that someone was defending them. “
