Before she was the Duchess of Sussex (and mom to baby Archie ), Meghan Markle was a working actress in Hollywood. And while she’s best known for her character of Rachel Zane on the television series Suits , her lesser known role on the game show Deal or No Deal is back in the spotlight thanks to a new auction.

In the years leading up to her acting break, Meghan briefly served as one of the ‘briefcase girls’ on Deal or No Deal. The show, hosted by Howie Mandel, saw contestants hoping to win as much as one million dollars by choosing one of 26 cases with a hidden sum inside. Meghan was in charge of briefcase number 24 when she appeared on the show during Season 2 in 2006.

And as The Sun reports, her infamous prop is about to be available at the Hollywood: A Collector’s Ransom Auction hosted by the collectibles dealer Profiles in History.

Meghan has previously spoken about her time on the show, recalling, “I would end up standing up there forever in these terribly uncomfortable and inexpensive five-inch heels just waiting for someone to pick my number so I could go and sit down.”

Despite not exactly having the best memories to share, Meghan's aluminium briefcase is expected to be sold for $4,000 - $6,000, according to the dealer’s listing.

The three-day auction will run December 17, 18 and 19, and plenty of other Hollywood memorabilia is listed, too, including Marilyn Monroe’s script for The Seven Year Itch, as well as several personal items and costumes from the beloved actress.
