She’s been living quietly under the radar since her romance with Prince Harry was revealed in the summer of 2016, but Meghan Markle finally put in a public appearance alongside her Suits co-stars, for a script read-through in Texas this past weekend.
Meghan, who plays legal associate Rachel Zane in the hit US drama, has been in a relationship with the royal since July of last year. Since then, she seems to have taken a bit of a step back from the public eye – perhaps to ward off any attention to her relationship.
But this past weekend the actress was back to work at a television festival with the rest of the Suits cast. And whilst there, Meghan was asked about her plans for a future with Prince Harry.
One member of the audience asked whether or not she hoped to marry Prince Harry, but reportedly, she simply smiled warmly and looked away in response.
So no wedding bells yet then. But it seems however that her fellow co-stars are more than happy to tease Meghan about her famous boyfriend. Rick Hoffman, who plays Louis Litt in Suits, jokingly suggested she did part of the script-read in a British accent – apparently in reference to her well-known English partner.
Meghan however continued to stay relatively quiet during the script-read, but did comment on how close she and the cast have become after filming Suits for seven years.

She said, “We were in a group email the other day and I was saying we’d all lived in the same corporate housing so on top of working together we were living together which makes a whole different dynamic, I think. We just became this whole family right out the gate.”
Perhaps one of Meghan’s closest friends on the Suits set is Patrick J. Adams, the man who plays Mike Ross, Rachel’s fiancee on the programme. And the actor has now spoken up himself about whether or not Prince Harry might get a starring role on the show alongside his girlfriend Meghan.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Patrick did admit that it’s probably not something we’re likely to see – sadly. He said, “I can say probably not. I think he has more important things to do at the moment.”
When asked by Hello! Magazine whether or not things had changed on set as interest around the show has inevitably increased as a result of Meghan’s famous relationship, he revealed that she’s been working just as hard as ever.
He said, “Honestly, it hasn’t really changed. Nothing has changed that much. Meghan has been killing it this season. She comes to work and is super excited to be at work. It feels very normal.”
