Meghan Markle is now officially the Duchess of Sussex – but the former Suits star’s new official royal web page has one glaring omission – and fans want to know why.
The star – who wed Prince Harry on Saturday – is now the subject of a life run-down on the official royal website, but it doesn’t tell the full story.
The document extensively details her charity work and feminist views, but in no place does it acknowledge her acting career. That information is buried in a separate sub-section that many may not see.
‘After university Her Royal Highness worked as an actress, appearing in film and television,’ the obscured section reads. ‘She most notably played the role of Rachel Zane on the series Suits for seven seasons, completing over 100 episodes. Whilst working on Suits, The Duchess moved to Toronto, Canada where the show was filmed; she feels very connected to Canada, as it became a second home to her.
‘Alongside her successful career as an actress, Her Royal Highness also wrote and edited a lifestyle website called The Tig which she used as a platform to discuss social issues such as gender equality in addition to articles on travel, food and fashion.’
Her main page instead highlights her work with the organisations such as UN Women, World Vision and One Young World.
‘The Duchess had a keen awareness of social issues and actively participated in charitable work,’ her biography notes. ‘Aged 11 she successfully campaigned for a company to alter their television advert that had used sexist language to sell washing-up liquid.
‘These early experiences helped to shape her lifelong commitment to causes such as social justice and women’s empowerment.’
