Guess what, Suits fans? If you miss Meghan Markle as Rachel Zane, you are not alone. Since becoming Meghan, Duchess of Sussex when she married Prince Harry on May 19, Meghan is officially part of the royal family — meaning, among other rules and protocols, that she can no longer be an actor. For those of us who watched her for seven seasons on the law drama, it’s with mixed feelings that we said goodbye to her character in April.
On Wednesday, during the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first official overseas trip since their wedding, she had a brief chat with a Suits fan that left an impression. Fiona Moore spoke to U.K. magazine Hello! about her interaction with the duchess. “I’m a fan of Suits and I said to her that I miss it and she said ‘so do I’.”
That doesn’t necessarily mean Meghan isn’t enjoying married life or being part of the royal family, though. Moore also told Hello! that during the royal couple’s walkabout, Meghan “seemed very relaxed and was joking and laughing.” In photos, Meghan always looks like she’s glowing. From her appearance, she seems to be having the time of her life.
Here’s the thing: Meghan spent seven years on Suits. If she didn’t miss being on set, we would definitely worry that something was terribly wrong during her character’s run on the show. According to Hello!, Meghan invited several of her Suits costars to the wedding, including her on-screen husband Patrick J. Adams, Gina Torres, Gabriel Macht, Sarah Rafferty and Rick Hoffman. It’s possible that she’s still in touch with them, but we imagine her new duties are keeping her awfully busy.
People magazine reports that another fan spoke with Prince Harry on Wednesday and asked when he and Meghan are planning to start having children. Elaine Adam-Stewart told the outlet that she said to the prince, “My husband also has red hair and he gave me five children — when are you and Meghan going to get going?” His reaction, she said, was humorous: “He laughed and said ‘five children? — too many.’”
Whatever’s next for the royal couple, one thing’s for sure: Meghan is handling her new role with elegance and grace. We miss her on Suits, but we love seeing her get to reach so many new fans through her position as a duchess.
