In an exclusive piece by Express UK, Morton suggests the Duchess only got into acting as a way to make a living playing dress-up.

He wrote: “As far as she was concerned, she never wanted fame. Acting was the chance to make a great living by playing dress-up and working with awesome people.”

In fact, Meghan is said to hate red carpets, as they make her nervous and make her feel like a “needy child”.

Meghan is widely believed to be the writer behind the anonymous blog Working Actress, which once wrote about this feeling.

She wrote: “I loathe walking the red carpet.It makes me nervous and itchy and I don't know which way to look. I just revert to this nerdy child that I once was. I hate it. I get off the carpet and have to shake it off. Sounds dramatic, but it’s really nerve-wracking for me," the post ended.
