Meghan Markle’s character is returning for the Suits finale

Wait, WHAT?

Meghan Markle has taken to her role as a royal so well that it’s hard to remember a time when she wasn’t Duchess of Sussex.

That’s right. Before the speeches, royal tours and ribbon cuttings, Meghan was of course a Hollywood actress, featuring in a number of high profile films.

Her most famous role however was in the show Suits, where she starred as Rachel Zane, for seven seasons, leaving the US TV series last year as she became a royal.

Fans of the show comforted themselves with the fact that the royal star may one day return – even for a cameo, but after Meghan admitted that she hasn’t been watching the show since her departure, it seemed unlikely.

Viewers got excited this week therefore, when it was revealed that Meghan’s character would be returning for the ninth season’s finale.

Yes, Meghan’s TV husband, Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), is returning for the final episode, and while the actor explained to Entertainment Tonight that Meghan won’t physically be there, he explained how they found a way to include her character Rachel.

‘There’s phone calls with Rachel saying, “Goodbye, I love you,” and, you know, I think there’s some obvious acknowledgment that she’s still there and a part of the show,’ he explained, going on to say of their characters’ relationship: ‘We’re happy. I promise you they’re happy.’

Will we hear Meghan’s voice on the phone? We’ll have to wait and see.
