Prince Harry only thing standing in way of Meghan Markles big comeback, say experts
Prince Harry is the 'only thing standing in the way' of Meghan Markle's big Hollywood comeback, according to a Royal expert.
Since Harry, 39, and Meghan, 42, sensationally quit the Royal Family in 2020 and moved to the US, they have levelled a number of jibes and accusations at Harry's family, including in an interview with US chat show host Oprah in 2021, and Harry's explosive memoir, Spare, which came out in January 2023.
Kinsey Schofield, a Royal commentator, believes that the Royal family's very public disagreements are making it difficult for the Duchess of Sussex to return to Hollywood.
Schofield agrees with Richard Kay, a Royal expert and former close friend of Princess Diana, who thinks that Harry is now tarnishing Meghan's brand.
"He told Palace Confidential that the only thing standing in Meghan's way of her big Hollywood comeback is Prince Harry," she shared during a chat with GB News.
Meghan, who is 42 years old, has recently teamed up with talent agency William Morris Endeavor and is reportedly keen to restart her successful acting career. A source told LifeandStyle Magazine: "She thinks an Oscar would be in her future."
However, all the Royal drama seems to be distracting from Meghan's career, making her comeback more challenging.
Richard Kay says it's harder for Meghan to launch her new career objectives amidst all of the royal rift headlines," Schofield added.
She also mentioned how tricky it is for the actress to promote new projects loudly due to the focus on her and Harry's relationship with the Royal family.
The upcoming release of Omid Scobie's new book Endgame is expected to stir up more Royal drama.
An extract shared with People magazine suggests "there is no going back" for brothers, Princes William and Harry, and "absolutely nothing has changed" since Prince Harry released his memoir, Spare, earlier this year.
Richard believes these revelations could hinder Meghan's return to Hollywood. He suggests that the world is still recovering from Spare, which was published at the beginning of this year, and the Duchess might be waiting for things to calm down.
"Is it because she wanted to give a bit more space to Harry who had so much to get off his chest this year with his ghastly book and his interviews about his family?" Kay asked on The Palace Confidential podcast last week.
He continued: "Maybe she wanted to put a bit of clear blue water between what he had to say and what she's going to do next, didn't want to taint her brand," before adding that Meghan's comeback hopes seem to fade as time passes.
"But what is her brand and will it still exist? The longer she stays out of the public eye, the harder it will be to revive it."
Meghan, who used to star in the American legal drama series Suits, had to give up her acting career and close down her lifestyle blog, the Tig, after getting engaged to Harry.
