How Suits stars reacted to news of Meghan Markles engagement to Prince Harry

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement to the world on November 27, 2017, with thousands of people taking to social media to congratulate the couple.

Among them were Meghan’s co-stars from hit tv show Suits, of which she had been a part of for seven seasons since it first aired in 2011.

The Duchess of Sussex played the role of Rachel Zane, a paralegal who eventually manages to pass the bar exam and becomes a lawyer.

As part of the show, Rachel develops a romantic relationship with colleague and fellow lawyer, Mike Ross, played by Patrick J. Adams, whom she marries in the Season 7 finale, which also proved to be Meghan’s last episode on the show.

The episode aired in April 2018, only a month before Meghan and Prince Harry tied the knot at Windsor Castle.

Following the announcement of the couple’s engagement, her on-screen fiancé at the time (Rachel and Mike hadn’t married yet), Patrick J. Adams, pretended to be shocked at the news, tweeting: “She said she was just going out to get some milk…”

Sarah Rafferty, who played Rachel’s best friend and colleague, Donna Paulsen, also congratulated the couple via Twitter.

She wrote: “Sending congratulations and wishes for every blessing across the pond today.”

Wendell Pierce, who played Meghan’s on-screen father, gave the Duke of Sussex his “TV father’s blessing”.

He tweeted: “Congratulations to my TV daughter Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on the news of their wedding engagement.

"Harry you have her TV Father’s blessing. Robert Zane approves.”

Gabriel Macht, who played Mike's mentor and Rachel's colleague Harvey Specter, also took to Twitter to congratulate the couple.

He said: “Congrats to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Sending all my best for your upcoming nuptials and a long happy life together.”

The show’s creator, Aaron Korsh, also posted a sweet Twitter message wishing the couple "a lifetime of happiness" together.

He wrote: “Congratulations to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on their engagement. Wonderful news, I wish you both a lifetime of happiness. Love, Aaron.”
