The Duchess of Sussex showed her hilarious style of acting in a new coffee promo

Meghan Markle has made a surprising return to acting in a "genius" new ad for a coffee company.

The Duchess of Sussex can be seen in Clevr Blends' latest advert, playing an intern stacking boxes, making hot drinks and working on a computer in the digital department.

The former actress, 42, made fans laugh as she failed to fist-bump another member of the team in the final shot as she walked off camera.

This led everyone to burst out laughing before the video ended.

Meghan has been an investor in the trendy oat latte brand since 2020.

The duchess was an extra throughout the ad, starring alongside the CEO and co-founder Hannah Mendoza.

In the video, Mendoza walked around the company's HQ and thanked the team for all their hard work in 2023.

Clevr Blends posted the video on Instagram with the caption: "Damn, you’re keeping us BUSY right now!

"Had to call in some reinforcements.

"So grateful for the immense love and support this year—thanks for helping us keep the latte-loving dream alive, and thriving! xo."

Meghan confirmed in December 2020 that she had invested an undisclosed sum in Clevr Brands, which has a range of lattes in powder form.

The former senior royal helped promote the company, which was founded in January 2019.

The duchess sent a basket of products to her neighbour Oprah Winfrey, who subsequently shared the products online.

Meghan has previously visited the company, appearing in a short video on Instagram earlier this year that saw her sipping from a coffee cup.

Other than this, the former Suits actress has been somewhat silent about her investment over the last three years.

The 42-year-old shared a glowing five-star review of the line in November, writing: "One of my favourite ways to start and end each day."
