Is this the final confirmation that Meghan Markle will never return to acting?

Say it isn’t so!

Say it isn’t so!

Meghan Markle has taken to her role as a royal so well that it’s hard to remember a time when she wasn’t Duchess of Sussex.

That’s right. Before the speeches, royal tours and ribbon cuttings, Meghan was of course a Hollywood actress, featuring in a number of high profile films.

Her most famous role however was in the show Suits, where she starred as Rachel Zane, for seven seasons, leaving the US TV series this year as she became a royal.

Fans of the show comforted themselves with the fact that the royal star may one day return - even for a cameo, but after Meghan admitted that she hasn’t been watching the show since her departure, it seemed unlikely.

And now it seems like the final confirmation that the Duchess will not return to the big screen has arrived, with Suits announced to be ending.

News broke this week that the Netflix show will return for a ninth season, but it will be its last.

‘Though I know it isn’t true, it seems like only yesterday USA Network took a chance on an unestablished writer’s very first-hour long script,’ Suits creator Aaron Korsh announced, going on to thank his family and ‘the exceptional writers, cast and crew – thank you for your passion and devotion, without which, Suits would be nothing.’

Will Meghan return for one last cameo in the finale or has she closed the door on acting for good? We’ll have to wait and see.
