Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, has signed a deal with huge talent agency WME.

The former 'Suits' actress will be working with the company - who represent the likes of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Rihanna, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, and Serena Williams - to "build out her business ventures" in a range of areas.

The company announced in a statement shared to Instagram: "We are honoured to announce that WME now represents Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, in all areas.

"The agency will be focusing on building out her business ventures across multiple facets of the agency and its broader ecosystem, including film and television production, brand partnerships, and more."

According to Variety, WME will also take on representation of Meghan and her husband Prince Harry's content creation under their Archewell company.

But the outlet stressed that: "Acting will not be an area of focus."

It is believed a number of talent agencies had been pitching to represent the duchess since she and her spouse stepped back from senior royal duties in 2020 to start a new life in her native California.

Archewell has a deal with Spotify, which released Meghan's 'Archetypes' podcast last year, and another with Netflix, which is home to the couple's 'Harry + Meghan' docuseries.

The 41-year-old duchess - who has Prince Archie, three, and Princess Lilibet, 22 months, with Harry - previously revealed she is keen to make romantic comedies through her production company.

She told Variety last year: “So much of how my husband and I see things is through our love story.

"For scripted, we want to think about how we can evolve from that same space and do something fun.

"It doesn’t always have to be so serious. Like a good rom-com. Don’t we miss them? I miss them so much.”
