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

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

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: 'Theres 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: 'Im told
that the pair are speaking at the moment, but the conversations are stilted and
