"Suits" made a funny reference to Meghan Markle's new life as a royal
MEGHAN Markle’s former TV show Suits has poked fun at the Duchess’ new life as the final series of the show is aired.
The Duchess of Sussex was a successful actress before marrying Prince Harry, and was best known for her role as Rachel Zane in the legal drama Suits.
The new mum left the show with her last episode airing in April last year, just a month before she wed Prince Harry.
The 38-year-old quit her acting job to become a full-time royal, but there was speculation she could return to the show – which is currently broadcasting its last season - in a cameo role.
While Meghan, aka Rachel, hasn’t returned, her on-screen husband Mike Ross, played by Patrick J Adams has popped up.
Making a comeback in episode five, Mike chats to fellow cast members who ask how Rachel’s doing.
Mike says: “If I told you how good, you probably wouldn’t believe me.”
Suits tweeted a clip of the episode, captioning it: “Turns out Rachel is doing REALLY well”, alongside a winking emoji.
It’s thought the show is making a subtle reference to Meghan’s new life as a member of the British royal family.
Fans have gone wild for the mention of how well ‘Rachel’ is doing in the show.
Commenting on Twitter, one person said: “That line was too cute.”
Another wrote: “We know she’s married to our UK Prince Charming.
A third added: “Aw that’s super cute actually. I hope she sees it.”
And this person added: “We probably wouldn’t believe him.”
Describing how the show is keeping Rachel in the loop, Patrick told Entertainment Tonight“For Mike this is just a trip to New York.
“There’s phone calls with Rachel saying goodbye and I love you, and y’know I think there’s some obvious acknowledgement that she’s still there and a part of the show.
