Meghan is apparently being advised “on the quiet” by agent Nick Collins – whose company also looks after Tobey Maguire and Jamie Foxx.

The source revealed: "It is clear she is wanting to keep surrounding herself with her Hollywood people. That wasn’t the expectation."

The source said: "As a full-time member of the Royal Family, it would be the expectation for that type of work to be exclusively handled by palace staff who balance individual desire over what’s right for the wider institution."
