Meghan Markle, Bond Girl? She Was Shortlisted, Report Says

Meghan Markle, Bond Girl? She Was Shortlisted, Report Says

Meanwhile, Prince Harry has come under fire over comments he made about the royals being the family that Ms Markle "never had".

Meghan's parents, mum Doria Ragland, 61, and dad Thomas Markle Sr, 73, divorced in 1987.

"Actually she [Meghan] has a large family who were always there with her and for her".

Prince Harry was accused of insensitivity when he said the royals were the family Meghan Markle "never had".

Prior to becoming one half of one of the world's most headline-grabbing romances, Meghan was a successful actress, and had roles in movies as well as her long-running part in hit U.S. TV show Suits.

As you know, the Suits actress recently put down her acting hat to pursue her relationship with Prince Harry - but before she hopped the pond, the 36-year-old was on the shortlist to be the next Bond Girl in the upcoming 007 film Bond 25 featuring Daniel Craig, which will be released in 2019. He dedicated the majority of all his time and everything to her.

The British royal family spent Christmas together over a three-day period at Sandringham estate in Norfolk, but how do they spend New Year's Eve?




"We did the best that we could in terms of getting together for holidays and whatnot".

His estranged sister, Samantha Grant, took to Twitter on Thursday to slam the royal's comments, writing: "She always had this family".

While bookies were just offering odds that she would become a Bond girl earlier this year, it seems Markle's acting career may truly be over.

"No look, she's done an absolutely fantastic job". The family she never had? Marrying merely extends it.

Pawsey begins her petition by accusing Markle of "pulling faces and sticking her tongue out to the visitors during her first public appearance with the Queen", although as BET notes, there is no evidence Markle ever did any such thing.

With Kate expecting her third child in April and the couple's children George, four, and Charlotte, two, ruling the roost, the duke and duchess may be in for a more relaxed NYE this year.

In interviews she has described her half-sister as a "shallow social climber" and claimed she shunned her family since making it in Hollywood.
