‘Suits’ says goodbye with hilarious joke about Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s romance in its finale

By Sarah Walker

The cast of Suits signed off for the final time on Sept. 25, and as part of the finale, they paid homage to the only missing cast member from the episode: the Duchess Meghan.

The former actress left the show at the end of Season 7 to move to London to be with her now-husband, Prince Harry.

In a montage that paid homage to the entire nine-season series, clips of the 38-year-old playing Rachel Zane were featured, including the moment her character wed her longtime love Mike Ross (played by Patrick J. Adams).

The finale also made reference to Meghan’s husband right before Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) walked down the aisle to marry his longtime love, Sheila.

“Wait a second, are you wearing a morning coat?” Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) asks Louis in the scene.

“Of course I’m wearing a morning coat,” Louis replies. "Frankly, I’m disappointed you’re not.”

Harvey then responds, “Louis, you’re not the prince of England.”

The nods to Meghan weren’t the only ones the show made during its final season.

In the fifth episode, Meghan’s onscreen husband Mike makes a cameo where he openly jokes about his wife’s new life.

When asked about how Rachel is doing, he slyly replies, “Good. In fact, if I told you how good you probably wouldn't believe me.”

The joke was later shared to social media by Suits’ Twitter account. “Turns out Rachel is doing REALLY well” they wrote, with a GIF of the moment.

It’s not known if Meghan PVRd the finale of the show while she’s on tour in Africa, but she has made it known that she misses the show and acting.

While on tour of Ireland in 2018, a fan said, “I’m a fan of Suits and I said to her that I miss it and she replied, ‘So do I.’”

Meghan left the show, but that hasn’t stopped her from keeping in touch with her former co-stars, many of whom were invited to her wedding. Patrick, Gina Torres, Gabriel, Sarah Rafferty and Rick were among those who flew to the UK for the Duke and Duchess’s nuptials.
