Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle ‘politely’ turns down invitation to attend Emmy Awards in Hollywood next month

Meghan Markle has reportedly declined an invitation to the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles next month.

According to reports, the Duchess of Sussex and her husband Prince Harry had been invited to attend the Hollywood award ceremony as special guests, but she is said to have ‘politely turned down’ the invitation and that her decision was a ‘line in the sand’ between her acting career and new life as a royal.

‘Show executives and NBC had offered Harry and her an invitation to celebrate with the biggest stars around, meet her showbiz friends and even present an honor. We had hoped Meghan would attend as a way of saying goodbye to her Suits fans and colleagues’ a source told Sun News.

She had been put forward for an Emmy award for her role as Rachel Zane on her final season of Suits.  Her name had been submitted for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category but the newly-minted royal never ended up being nominated.
