The Duchess of Sussex is a former actor, philanthropist and has also launched a podcast with husband Prince Harry, 36. But the latest feather in her cap could be a work of fiction for either adults or children, The Mail on Sunday reports.
The couple have announced the release of Archwell Audio, their Spotify podcast, and earlier this year signed a deal with streaming giant Netflix to produce a range of programmes.
Meghan, 39, appeared on CNN’s annual Heroes TV special this month, praising the “power of human spirit” as she honoured those who have helped others during the coronavirus pandemic.
The couple, who now live in an £11million property in Montecito, California, plan to release their first podcast episode over the festive period.
But a source has spoken of Meghan’s attraction to writing.
They told The Mail on Sunday: “Meghan has some experience as a writer and used to have a popular blog called The Tig before she met Harry that covered health, travel, food and fashion.
“Fiction is something she has always wanted to try her hand at, and she could be assured that anything she writes would sell well, regardless of its quality.
“Fiction, be it children’s books or adult, would be a powerful way of conveying the messages of their woke brand.”
Meghan played the role of attorney Rachel Zane in hit TV show Suits for seven series, from 2011 to 2018.

In a statement about it, the couple highlighted the importance of listening closely to others.
They said: “What we love about podcasting is that it reminds us all to take a moment and to really listen, to connect to one another without distraction.
“With the challenges of 2020, there has never been a more important time to do so, because when we hear each other, and hear each other’s stories, we are reminded of how interconnected we all are.”
In a preview clip ahead of the first episode, Meghan said: “We’re talking to some amazing people.
“They’re going to share their memories that have really helped shape this past year which has been, as we know, a difficult one for everyone.”
The Sussexes have shared their family Christmas card, taken at home in LA.
It features their two rescue dogs and was shared by Mayhew, an animal welfare charity.
Mayhew wrote on Twitter: “We’re thrilled to receive wonderful Christmas wishes from our Patron, The Duchess of Sussex, who also made a personal donation, helping dogs, cats and our community.
“From all of us at Mayhew, thank you and Merry Christmas.”
