Meghan Markle may be toying with the idea of returning to acting three years after she retired from the job, a royal expert claims.

The Duchess of Sussex wants to return to the big screen and star in a superhero film, it has been suggested to royal biographer Angela Levin.

Suggestions were made earlier this week that Meghan, 40, may go back on her decision to retire her acting career - and star in a blockbuster film.

Sources said in early 2020 that her agent was actively looking for a superhero role for the Duchess - but plans were seemingly halted by the Covid pandemic.

Despite giving up her on-screen roles when she married Prince Harry in 2018, mum-of-two Meghan has continued to work in the creative industry.

However, a leading role in a blockbuster film may be on the cards in the future.

Meghan worked for over 15 years in the acting industry before meeting the Prince - with her most notable role being Rachel Zane in Suits.

Last year, she narrated a Disney+ documentary 'Elephants,' in her first post-Megxit media project after her husband was filmed suggesting her for a job at the Lion King premiere.

In June, she released her first children's book, The Bench, which she penned as a "love story" about growing with Prince Harry in "good times or bad".

Meghan and Harry also bagged multi-million dollar deals with Netflix and Spotify after stepping down as royals in 2020.

Earlier this month, the Sussexes' close pal Omid Scobie hinted that plans to make a film are in the pipeline for the couple - adding that it's "only a matter of time before it comes to life."

This comes as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were criticised for performing "pseudo-royal engagements" one year after ditching the Prince's family for privacy.
