Meghan Markle: Returning To Show Business?!

by at .  Updated at .

Despite Meghan Markle's new life as a royal, there is still hope she will take a break from expensive gowns and tea and return to where it all began, the stage! 

Yes, that's right. If you missed her breakthrough role on Suits, don't fret. There is still a chance that you can catch the Duchess in a theatre near you! 

Ok... well maybe just London's National Theatre first.

Meghan Markle is Pregnant

The Duchess of Sussex was announced as the new Royal Patron to the theatre that sits on the South Bank of the Thames, in London. The Queen herself passed down the patronage to Meghan after holding the role for 45 years. 

I suspect the Queen knew exactly what she was doing and like us, would love to see Meghan grace the stage (and maybe one day screen) again soon. 

The patronage reflects Meghan's beliefs "In using the arts to bring people from different backgrounds and communities together, according to the National Theatre. 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: Miserable?

Leading royal historian Robert Lacey told People his thoughts and opinions on how it could happen. 

He thinks "Meghan's new patronage of the National Theatre presents fascinating opportunities" for the former star. 

Of course, she may choose to stay involved from the audience, but I like to think the mom to be still has some spark left in her!

Lacey, a consultant for the Netflix hit The Crown says in this week's issue of People, "if Meghan is ever missing the excitement of acting, this will put her back in touch with show business in a very creative way. It is tailor-made for her and she will throw herself into it." 

He also believes the Duchess will even take part at some point and be involved with productions or even directing something herself. 

Lacey adds that "the National Theatre has quite a radical record of tackling the difficult social issues of the moment and for innovating new plays and productions - so that might be an area where she might add her influence."

So, could the past actress-turned-Duchess REALLY come home to the stage?

"It's not out of the question that we'd see a member of the royal family performing on the stage of the National Theatre one day." 

Ok, universe! I'm talking to you, please make this happen!
