The particulars of their relationship aside, Markle is the most independently successful woman Harry has ever dated, and would be the most famous American woman since Grace Kelly to ever join a monarchy, let alone the British monarchy, should she and the prince go the distance.

If they do, what does that mean for all of Meghan Markle’s personal endeavors, not least of which being her acting career?

Markle doesn’t just show up, shoot and call it a day.

T may be the exact opposite sort of outcry than t was for Grace Kelly’s acting aspirations should Markle decide to call it a career and leave Hollywood for good anytime soon.

First thing’s first: Her philanthropic ways will obviously fit right in with the royals, particularly Harry, who along with William grew up watching his mother, the late Princess Diana, tirelessly champion a number of causes-and so the brothers have continued in her stead. It’s not much of a stretch to assume that Meghan’s commitment to giving back proved quite appealing to Harry.

Explaining why she spent most of her downtime during hiatus from Suits traveling on behalf of various causes, Markle told Miami Living this summer, “That makes so much more sense for me to do than a film that doesn’t move the needle.”

Markle has also been increasingly open, including in an essay she penned for Elle U.K. last year, about her experiences-in Hollywood and beyond-as the daughter of a black mother and a white father and how that has shaped the woman she is today.

So it’s conceivable that Markle could end up hanging onto more of herself than any person who married into Britain’s royal family has before.
