Princesses Can’t Act, Or Meghan Markle Would Be a Bond Girl

Being a princess requires sacrifice. It’s not all mice making clothes for you and singing with tigers. One of the biggest sacrifices is you can’t exactly be an actress, it’s not really something a member of the royal family does, even if said royal is already an actress.

So, Meghan Markle is giving up acting to marry Prince Harry, and we’re getting a look at what that means, exactly, from a piece in The Sun. Markle’s career was just about to take off in a major way, to say the least, and she was on the short list of candidates to be the next Bond girl.

A film source said: “Meghan fits the role of a Bond girl perfectly. She’s glamorous and sexy and a good actress.

“The role more recently has gone to actresses deemed to be rising stars, and Meghan certainly was seen as that before her relationship with Harry became public.

“The brief was to find a glamorous rising star, specifically someone American or Canadian.”

Basically, Meghan Markle was a princess before she ever met Prince Harry. Which is good, because marrying a prince doesn’t actually make you a princess, it makes you a duchess, probably, it’s up to Her Maj what title you actually get, at least in England. Grace Kelly got to be a princess, but Meghan Markle, like Kate Middleton and Lady Diana, will never actually be a princess.

In addition to not being a Bond girl or a princess, Markle is also leaving her role as Rachel Zane on Suits, and will be retiring from acting altogether so as not to interfere with the traditional job of the royal family, which is being seen at places and waving.

As Markle and Prince Harry head towards their wedding day, a bit of controversy has arisen in the USA. You see, Meghan and Harry are friends with Barack and Michelle Obama, and they want to invite them to the wedding. But they don’t want to invite America’s racist uncle, Donald Trump, to a function that isn’t a state event. It’s also considerate, because Trump probably has an important golf game that weekend anyway. But people sure are mad at the prospect of old Donnie being snubbed from the wedding of people he doesn’t know or like in favor of someone the bride and groom are friends with.

Personally, I think it’s probably hard enough for Markle having to sacrifice her acting career, one where she could have been the next Hollywood It girl, for the sake of her husband. We really shouldn’t add the indignity of having Donald Trump at the ceremony on top of that.
