And it’s bold.

Meghan Markle has fitted into the royal family so seamlessly that it’s hard to recall a time when the 37-year-old wasn’t an official member.

But, of course the new bride was only given her Duchess of Sussex title two months ago, leaving a life as a Hollywood actress to focus on her new royal role.

In preparation for becoming a Duchess, Meghan has deleted her social media pages, closed her blog ‘The Tig’ and walked away from her acting career, leaving TV show Suits where she shot to fame.

But it was this week however that she really put her past behind her, declining an invitation to the 70th Emmy awards ceremony, set to take place next month at LA’s Microsoft Theatre.


There was hope that the Duchess of Sussex, who just missed a nomination at the prestigious event, would attend, being offered a special guest appearance.

But unsurprisingly, it was reported that the former actress bowed out of the honour, with The Sun reporting that Meghan had ‘politely turned down’ the invitation.

To be honest - she’s busy!

But according to LA sources via The Sun, this might be Meghan sending a message that she is no longer part of the Hollywood set.

‘We had hoped Meghan would attend as a way of saying goodbye to her Suits fans and colleagues,’ reported one LA source. ‘Show executives and NBC had offered Harry and her an invitation to celebrate with the biggest stars around, meet her showbiz friends and even present an honour. But Meghan is not attending.’

Another LA source then went further, reportedly calling Meghan’s decision ‘a line in the sand’.

Whether the newlyweds are in attendance or not, we’ll definitely be tuning in for the awards.
