Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may struggle to launch careers in LA because powerful studio bosses see them as ‘red-carpet fodder, not as a bankable item,’ a royal biographer has claimed.
The Duchess of Sussex, 38, who is currently living in the $18m (£14.5 million) Beverly Hills mansion of mega-rich Hollywood actor/producer Tyler Perry with husband Prince Harry, 35, and their son Archie, hasn’t yet received any offers of leading roles, according to Christopher Wilson.
‘Crucially for Meghan, no studio seems to have stepped forward with the offer of a leading lady role, her hope and dream,’ he said, speaking to The Express.
‘If they had, we’d have heard about it. It would seem the all-powerful studio bosses look on the couple as red-carpet fodder, not as a bankable item.’

The couple tied the knot in a star-studded wedding at at Windsor Castle in May 2018 – before shocking the world when they announced they would be stepping back as senior royals in January.
The royal biographer went on to say that the couple were a ‘powerful force’ in the UK, but claims Harry has since realised that things have changed.
‘In Britain, they were a powerful force,’ alleged the royal biographer. ‘But when Harry walked away from royal duties he broke the magic thread which binds royalty to the people.
‘It’s taken a long time for the penny to drop, but Harry has discovered he is no king of the high seas but a castaway stranded on a desert island.’

The comments come as royal experts claim Kate Middleton has been left reeling by the new bombshell biography about the Sussexes while conversations between Prince Harry and Prince William are now ‘stilted and difficulted.’
Finding Freedom, which is written by authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand and is released next week, lays bare a rift between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and the rest of the Firm.
Royal author Andrew Morton has revealed how Kate has been left ‘devastated’ by the feud enveloping the royal family, telling New Idea: ‘There’s no doubt the rift between Harry and William has deeply affected Kate. It upsets her.’
Meanwhile, Phil Dampier said the bombshell book would do ‘little to heal the relationships’ between the Duke and Prince William, 38, explaining: ‘I’m told that the pair are speaking at the moment, but the conversations are stilted and difficult.’
