Before Meghan Markle started dating Prince Harry, she was known for her role in Suits. However, over time, she became more and more popular due to her husband's brood.
U.S. commentator Lee Cohen argued that the TV star, 40, wouldn't be famous if it wasn't for the 37-year-old.
“They've earned my scorn because they've treated Harry's family very poorly in all of this. I don't feel that it's at all productive for them to be criticizing the royal family," Cohen said. "They got what they wanted. They stepped back, they have the notoriety already. They certainly never would have obtained the level of publicity that she currently has if she hadn't married into this family.”
Though the pair, who moved away from the U.K. in 2020, have made some appearances at swanky Hollywood events, royal expert Neil Sean noted that "it's not easy" to get into the scene.
“You have to think of content and then more importantly you have to produce it, write it and maybe hopefully get an audience on top of all that," he stated. “So, it's not as easy as they possibly thought but when you become a major celebrity like Harry and Meghan are now, the bigger problem is you have a golden period.”
“Everybody wants to sign you, you get invited to things like the Oscars. You get offered all of these mega deals as we saw the books deal along with is worth a lot of money even though he's going to have to deliver some rather tawdry asides to make sure that people feel they've got their value for money," he added. “If it's a spectacular success, they are guaranteed even more money but as ever in the fickle world of Hollywood they're now living in, if it doesn't resonate with the audience then they can expect a sharp decline in those mega offers and mega deals."
