Meghan Markle Signs With Hollywood Super Agency WME
Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has signed a contract with WME for representation.
One could say that the agreement is the crown jewel for WME because other competing agencies have been vying for the services of the public figure formerly known as Meghan Markle ever since she and husband Prince Harry relocated to California in 2020.

Ari Emanuel, a former power agent who is now the CEO of Endeavor, Dwayne Johnson’s agent and brand architect Brad Slater, and Serena Williams’ longstanding agent Jill Smoller will be on her WME team. She and Prince Harry’s content creation label Archewell will also be represented by WME. The production of movies and television, brand alliances, and general company development will be examined. The focus will not be on acting.
The connection is a hint that Meghan wants to focus on her business endeavors. Her lifetime support of moms, daughters, and women will continue to run through all of her professional endeavors. She talked about her goals for Archewell original content in her Variety cover story from the previous year (she and Harry are presently working on a deal with Netflix).
“Our love story informs so much of how my husband and I view the world. I believe that’s what drew in viewers from all over the world, especially after our wedding. Love is really popular. I share that sentiment, too,” Meghan remarked. “For scripted, we want to consider how we might change and make something enjoyable from that same place. Not everything has to be taken so seriously. a good romantic comedy. We certainly miss them. I really miss them.
She top lists including TIME Magazine’s Most Influential People, The Financial Times’ 25 Most Influential Women, Variety Power of Women, and British Vogue’s Vogue 25, Meghan is a recognized global icon.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have so far collaborated with Netflix to develop two docuseries, including “Harry & Meghan.” With 81.5 million minutes seen in its first week, the series is the most-streamed documentary debut in Netflix history.
