Two years ago Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, left the American legal drama show ‘Suits’ to get married to Prince Harry of England. Since then, the royal couple have become one of the internet’s favourite people, second only to Queen Elizabeth in terms of global popularity. Shortly after their grand wedding, the couple relinquished their royal positions and powers in exchange for more freedom and to escape the public eye.
They have, since, received bizarre job offers over the internet, some of those clearly being jokes but others too bizarre to be funny. One of the things Meghan’s fans are requesting the most seems to be a return of her show Suits for a tenth season. In light of the recent happenings and socio-political scenario in the United States, Meghan had delivered a strong-worded and sharp speech to her alma mater in solidarity with the recent anti-racist protests and the Black Lives Matter movement..
Here are all the facts and updates:
What has happened since #Megxit?
Earlier this year Meghan Markle announced that she and her husband, Prince Harry would be stepping aside as senior members of the royal family in a post on Instagram. They also expressed their intention of splitting their time between the United Kingdom and the United States equally and living financially independent lives. This event was dubbed as “Megxit” by netizens and was accompanied by hundreds of thousands of memes on the royal couple. This meant that the couple could no longer use their royal titles. Much of the backlash against Megxitwas directed at Meghan, some even went further to say that this decision was all hers. However, Prince Harry has, on numerous occasions clarified that the decision he took was not a light one and he did not take it in haste, he added that he only did what he did because he was left with no other option.
What have the couple been up to?
Since announcing their withdrawal from the royal family, Meghan and Harry have had a baby together, a boy named Archie. The couple moved to Los Angeles together and have been living there since then. Some reports suggest that this move has left Harry feeling isolated and homesick, especially after the recent news of his father, Prince Charles contracting the novel coronavirus.
Meghan has been nothing but supportive of her husband throughout this ordeal and has been trying to cheer him up. Since Megxit, the couple might have been having some financial issues since they are no longer on the royal family’s bankroll anymore. In response to this rumour, they have been bombarded with job offers from famous celebrities, corporations and even the Sussex Police Department. Talk show hosts such as Trevor Noah and Steven Colbert have had their shot, Burger King offered Prince Harry a part-time job and much more.
Meghan Markle’s role in the upliftment of the black community
Meghan Markle and Harry have officially aligned themselves with the Black Lives Matter community in an Instagram post on their official joint account. It has become clear that Meghan Markle views herself as a good role model for young black teenagers all over the world. She regards herself as someone who is capable of addressing issues relating to racial equality and social justice owing to her own life experiences as a half black woman.
She addressed the death of George Floyd in a video conference with her alma mater of Immaculate Heart High School. “She felt compelled to directly address and to speak to these young women about what’s happening in this country right now around the killing of George Floyd; as well as what’s been happening over many, many years and many, many generations to countless other black Americans,” a spokesperson quoted in a recent interview on her behalf.

The show had concluded with its ninth season last year with no plans to renew it for a tenth season as of yet. But that will not stop the show’s and Meghan’s fans from hoping for a return of the show and their favorite actress and royal along with it.
