When she had to speak about her personal life with Pierce, she used 'London' to refer to Prince Harry.


According to her former TV dad, she would respond to his question with something along the lines of, "Oh I’m going to London, coming from London, whatever."

No more Rachel Zane

After she and Prince Harry announced their engagement, she disclosed in their first interview together that she would no longer be a part of the series.

Shooting Meghan's final season on Suits was very emotional, Pierce said.

At one point, when they spoke alone, he told her, "I know your life is going to change but always know, no matter where you are, I will always be your loving fake father."

Their relationship kicked off with Meghan filming and living in Canada, while Harry was in London. They had to be as stealthy as possible to make sure news of their relationship did not leak to the press prematurely.

ABC News reports that they had to rely on friends to create spaces where they could hang out.
