Now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are hurtling towards a fresh start in Los Angeles, many eyes are on her acting career.

After all, as this summer’s Suits success reminded the world, she was an actress long before she was a duchess.

Meghan has now gotten in front of a camera again — and not as herself.

However, it’s not quite the acting comeback that many of her fans had imagined. Take a look:

Clevr has a promotional video out now on Instragram.

While it will never be the most iconic coffee advertisement for this time of year (Folgers nailed that over a decade ago), it’s cute and has a very cozy feel.

One part of the marketing has less to do with the product and more to do with one seemingly random participant in the ad.

“Damn, you’re keeping us BUSY right now! Had to call in some reinforcements,” Clevr’s Instagram account teased in the caption.

The video itself is a walkthrough of their alleged day-to-day.

Except that Meghan Markle adopts multiple roles. The ad doesn’t name her, but she appears in multiple shots.

First, we see the Duchess of Sussex going through the motions of being part of the fulfillment crew. That is to say that she’s packing boxes.

Attention is on Clevr co-founder Hannah Mendoza, who walks viewers through how things work at “Clevr HQ.”

Then, Meghan very clearly appears again. This time, she’s adoping the role of part of the company’s digital department. A regular polymath, that Meghan Markle.

And then we see her again, seemingly acting as a friendly colleague … or perhaps even an intern.

First, Meghan hands the co-founder a cup of coffee.

Then, she tries but fails to fistbump a coworker while walking off with a box of coffee. Our guess? This would have been an outtake, but was so cute and genuine that they opted to keep it in.

Now, a lot of people are wondering WTF she’s doing there. This is a random coffee commercial for a coffee commercial, and it doesn’t feature her center stage.

Well, Meghan has been a fan of Clevr since 2016, when the company launched. (We’re unsure why they didn’t start listening to Britney on a loop until 2019 … some of us have been doing it for decades)

Meghan also invested in the latte company back in December 2020. Notably, this was after she and Harry stepped away from the royal firm to live their own lives. So Meghan’s just supporting a business by quietly getting them some extra attention — and it’s working.
