What does it mean for a modern woman to become a part of the British royal family? First of all, it requires a complete rejection of the former life, as it happened with Meghan. The acting career was finished for Markle as soon as she became Harry’s wife. However, regardless of how weird it may sound, a few months after the wedding, she appeared in a film! However, it was a documentary.
Regardless of her status, the film industry doesn’t seem to want to let Meghan go so easily. The BBC company announced the imminent release of the musical comedy about the Duchess The Sixth In Line to be King and I. It will be a 14-minute mini-musical about her life, rich first royal year, and upcoming birth of the baby.
Meghan appeared in the lives of the British rapidly and was quite a unique person in the royal environment. This is probably one of the secrets of her popularity growth. It is difficult to say what inspired the creation of this mini-musical: Meghan’s style, manners, past, life changes, or even her humanitarian work. Perhaps all these and many other biographical facts made it possible for us to see the Duchess’ life on the stage.
According to The Telegraph, Pippa Evans will most likely play the Duchess. The girl’s stage partners will be her equally popular colleagues – Dave Lamb and Richie Webb. Evans has repeatedly collaborated with the BBC and used to be quite a frequent guest star. Pippa is a 36-year-old British comedian, best known for performing in an improvisational genre and participating in popular shows.
Fans of BBC Sounds, in particular Radio 4, will be able to listen to the mini-musical already on January 1, 2019. It will become part of the entertainment program dedicated to the Christmas and New Year holidays. This won’t be the first show of its kind: improvisational actors have repeatedly attracted the public’s attention to various celebrities and significant events.
Probably, Meghan’s insane popularity among the media is as a result of her joining the royal family not so long ago. There have already been books written and movies filmed about her royal relatives, so it is high time for Meghan to shine on mass media, even though little time has passed since her and Prince Harry's nuptials.
It seems that she has something to be proud of. What do you think? Has Megan already earned such recognition? Share your thoughts in the comments.
