‘I’m sure she’ll make a movie again’: Meghan will return to Hollywood, says her pal and agent (who insists she’ll face down hostile royal officials)
Married to Prince Harry and with a baby on the way, the Duchess of Sussex has the world as her stage.
The American former actress will, nevertheless, perform a spectacular return to Hollywood, according to her last showbusiness agent.
‘I’m sure she’ll make a movie again,’ Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne tells me. ‘I really do think that.’
Gina, who represented Meghan until she met Harry, compares the Duchess’s situation with that of Oscar winner Grace Kelly, who abandoned Tinseltown to marry Prince Rainier of Monaco.
However, Princess Grace’s yearning to return led to major ructions with her husband, who banned her from accepting the leading role in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1964 film Marnie and subsequent Hollywood offers.
Gina said that Meghan (right) will be a ‘lovely mummy’ and her nurturing nature was why Harry (left) married her
Meghan now has an important role in the royal ‘Firm’ and a diversion to La La Land would not be welcomed by officials.
But Gina, who became close friends with Meghan and was with her the day she met the Prince, says courtiers couldn’t prevent her achieving her big-screen ambitions.
‘If Meghan wants to make a movie again, she will,’ says Gina at a party in London’s Marylebone.
‘She’s a determined woman and she knows what she wants. She’s a woman of today, she’s got her will and she’s a leader.’
Meghan made her name in the legal drama Suits and had mainly small parts in films, but she would win starring roles on her return.
‘She’ll definitely do something serious,’ Gina says. ‘She’s not going to be a frivolous little girl like she’s been before. And she’s a great actress.’
The Hollywood return will not happen until Meghan, 37, has had a number of children. ‘I know how much she wanted babies — plural,’ Gina adds.
‘She’s going to be a lovely mummy — she’s very nurturing and that’s probably why Harry fell for her.’
