Long-distance friendship goals right there
Words by Anna Clarke
Meghan Markle might have waved goodbye to her time on TV, but she clearly isn’t quite ready to close that (stage) door completely as she’s already planning a co-star reunion.
The freshly christened Duchess of Sussex, who left the hit USA Network show Suits to casually step into life as a royal, is reportedly organising a hang out with acting besties; when she heads off on her first official royal tour to Australia in October.
Meghan, who played paralegal Rachel Zane on the hit Netflix show, has apparently been invited to spend time with close friend Gabriel Macht (who played Harvey Specter) and his wife Jacinda Barrett at their luxurious Noosa home in southern Queensland, while she is there.
Macht and his wife — who were both guests at the royal wedding —offered the royal pair use of their beautiful £500,000 home in the beachside resort of Australia’s Sunshine Coast.
A source told The Mirror: ‘Harry and Meghan have a window free and Gabriel and his wife have invited them to their beautiful Queenslander-style house.
‘It’s an incredible place and will be perfect for them to chill out before they go on what is likely to be a fairly non-stop tour.
‘They’ll have a great time and they’ll have a chance to see the real Australia after the bustle of Sydney.’
The newlyweds are heading down under in order to attend Harry’s Invictus Games for injured servicemen and women, which is happening in Sydney. The event holds a special place for the couple and is also where they had their very first public appearance together back at the 2017 Games in Toronto.
The generous co-star invite comes not long after the Royal Palace was called out on Twitter for sneakily updating her online bio to better reflect her successful acting career and role in the Suits series.
It read: ‘She most notably played the role of Rachel Zane on the series Suits for seven seasons, completing over 100 episodes.’
So perhaps this trip is another way for Meghan to keep up old ties to her work pals…Here’s hoping that Royal diary allows for some leisure time.
