Before she was the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle was Rachel Zane on the hit USA series Suits. Having been on the show for seven years, Meghan not only built quite the fanbase, but proved herself to be an outstanding acting talent. So much so, that the 36-year-old has now been submitted for Emmy consideration in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category. How exciting!
That said, the category is chock full of equally amazing talents including Chrissy Metz from This Is Us, Ann Down (who took home the award last year) from The Handmaid’s Tale, and Millie Bobby Brown from Stranger Things. With that, the likelihood of Meghan snagging a nomination, let alone a win, could be pretty slim.

Moreover, even if she was nominated, could she actually attend the award show? While royals in the past have been known to frequent Hollywood-centric events — like Princess Diana at The Met Gala in 1996 — it seems unlikely that an award show is considered an appropriate forum. After all, Meghan’s official royal biography hardly mentions her acting career.
Beyond just potentially being in poor taste, could you imagine the security detail she’d have to bring with her? If she and Prince Harry were forced to bring security on their intimate honeymoon getaway, a big event like the Emmy Awards would only prove more intense.
Even still, it’s clear that 2018 has been Meghan’s most blessed year yet. Between marrying a literal prince and being acknowledged for her talents, she truly has it all!
