Meghan Markle’s career was reportedly snubbed by the royal family, claims a royal expert.

Omid Scobie and Emily Andrews spoke on the podcast “On Heir” and discussed the Duchess of Sussex’s newly announced patronages. One of which is the National Theater, which was passed on to Markle by Queen Elizabeth II.

“It’s great to see Meghan reconnecting with that show business past of hers. I thought it was quite interesting that the palace didn’t mention ‘Suits’ in the announcement, they just said that she had a background in theater,” Scobie said.

Markle graduated with a degree in theater from Northwestern University in Illinois. But her most famous achievement as an actress happened on “Suits.” Markle landed the lead role of Rachel Zane in the hit USA Network television series after years of being given small roles.

Scobie went on to say that he knows National Theater is different from acting on television, but it might have been better if “Suits” was also mentioned in the announcement because it was a huge part of Markle’s career.

“It was only a year and a half ago that she was filming those final scenes,” he said.

Markle last appeared in “Suits” in the episode that aired on April 25, 2018. The series continued on to its next season but without Markle.

Meanwhile, Scobie and Andrews also talked about Markle’s upcoming public appearance. The hosts of the podcast said that it is possible that Markle will be seen next when she meets with the heads of the National Theater.

Since the National Theater does an annual award every Jan. 25, it is possible that Markle will be invited to the gathering. This may serve as Markle’s first team up with the charity.

And when it came to Markle’s plans for the future, Scobie said that he wouldn’t be surprised if the Duchess of Sussex decides to join a charity production in the coming years. This would mean that Markle could go back to acting without breaking royal protocol.
