Meghan Markle Ends Acting Career Ahead of Her Royal Wedding… with a TV Wedding!

As she prepares for her royal wedding, Meghan Markle has officially said goodbye to acting.

On Wednesday, Markle, who has previously said that she would be retiring from acting to focus on her royal duties, made her last appearance as an actress on the season 7 finale of Suits.

In the two-hour episode, Markle’s character, Rachel Zane and fiancé, Mike Ross (played by Patrick J. Adams, who is also leaving the USA Network series) get a job offer that’s too good to pass up. The pair accepts, but there’s a catch. It’s in Seattle. So the couple quickly moves up their special day, and finally tie the knot.

Following news of Markle’s engagement to Prince Harry, USA Network announced back in November that Meghan would be leaving the hit legal drama.

“From all of us at USA Network and Universal Cable Productions, we want to send our most heartfelt congratulations to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on their engagement,” the statement read.

“Meghan has been a member of our family for seven years and it has been a joy to work with her,” continued the statement. “We want to thank her for her undeniable passion and dedication to Suits, and we wish her the very best.”

Meghan, who was one of the original cast members of the show (featured in 107 episodes) since it first aired in June 2011, also confirmed that she would no longer be acting.

“I don’t see it as giving anything up. I just see it as a change,” she said in her first joint interview with Prince Harry in November.

“It’s a new chapter, right? And also, keep in mind, I’ve been working on [Suits] for seven years. We were very, very fortunate to have that sort of longevity on a series,” she explained, adding, “I’ve ticked this box, and I feel very proud of the work I’ve done there, and now it’s time to work with [Harry] as a team.”

While she will be stepping away from TV roles, Meghan will continue to further her passion for humanitarian work.

“I think what’s been really exciting as we talk about the transition out of my career and into my role is,” she said. “The causes that are really important to me that I can focus even more energy on. Very early out of the gate, I think you realize you have access or a voice that people are willing to listen and with that comes a lot of responsibility, which I take seriously.”

#Suits Says Goodbye to Mike and Rachel with a Fairy Tale Wedding

It was a tearful finale for Suits, which said goodbye to two of its main characters with a fairy tale wedding, seasons in the making.

Mike (Patrick J. Adams) and Rachel (Meghan Markle) spent their final episode fighting corrupt Fortune 500 companies and trading “I do’s” in front of their closest family and friends. It turned out that Mike’s dream job offer of running a firm that solely tackled class action law suits in Seattle was in fact very real and not a set up by the power company he was fighting in court. When Rachel did some digging into said company, she discovered the job offer was still open and decided it was an opportunity the lovebirds couldn’t waste.

Of course, they couldn’t leave New York without tying the knot. The moved up their wedding six weeks, recruiting Donna (Sarah Rafferty) because only she could get a job like this done, and had a rustic and chic night wedding. Rachel looked radiant in a lace white dress, far simpler than what Meghan Markle is expected to wear for her own wedding to Prince Harry in a few weeks. Mike and his best man Harvey (Gabriel Macht), matched in their tailored suits (Sorry, it was too irresistible to pass up).

Mike and Rachel have been an item since Season 1 and have been engaged since Season 5. Prison stints and reorganizing law firms have kept the nuptials from happening earlier, but the wedding felt like the perfect way to send them off into the sunset together. It is the happy ending they deserve, even if their departure comes sooner than fans wanted.

However, the most poignant moment of the entire ceremony actually came in Mike’s goodbye to his mentor Harvey. Yes, Mike and Rachel have been romantically entangled in some way or another over the course of the entire season, but Harvey and Mike have been pseudo-brothers from the opening of the pilot. They are the titular suits and their friendship has been the central relationship of the show since the beginning.

That’s what made it so touching when Mike announced that he was leaving because he was ready. Harvey had taught him everything that he knew and now Mike is ready to go out into the world and become the lawyer he’s always wanted to be. He’s no longer a kid or a fraud. He’s a man with goals and ideals and it’s time for him to stand on his own two feet.

Harvey was sad to see his No. 2 go, but even he could see that it was time to let Mike and Rachel leave the nest. Cheers to the happy couple, and here’s to changing the world one lead poisoning case at a time.

Suits Season 8 will air later this year on USA.

Suits Recap: ‘Pulling The Goalie’

Okay, now it’s starting to feel like Patrick J. Adams’ time on the show is coming to an end. With two more episodes left this season, “Pulling the Goalies” sees Harvey and Mike team-up to help Judge Ralls, the judge who presided over Mike’s fraud case. Seeing Harvey and Mike kicking it like the good ol’ days has been a rare occurrence in the past few seasons, so it was nice that we got one more Batman and Robin takedown before Adams leaves the show. Obviously, this case wasn’t without its bumps.

Judge Ralls approaches Mike to represent her in the lawsuit, claiming she overturned a verdict for personal gain. She swears she didn’t do it, and guilt trips Mike into taking the case since she treated him fairly during his trial. She even quotes his closing statement back at him. So obviously Mike feels compelled to take it. However, taking her on as a client means the firm would have to drop any client that has a case in her court. This is the last thing Harvey wants to do, but Mike asks him to work on it with him because he wants them to have fun together and thinks Harvey might need a distraction from his break-up.

So, the two get to work on the case, which proves to be trickier than they expected. But that’s not really important here. What’s important is the meal the two share while working where Harvey tells Mike about Donna kissing him, and Mike admits that he told Donna to tell Harvey how she felt before it was too late. Harvey realizes Mike couldn’t have known she’d kiss him. So for the moment they’re cool, but once the case heats up, everything changes.

Eventually, the opposing counsel suing Ralls tells Mike and Harvey that she’s coming after her. Harvey’s one rule is that clients don’t lie to him, so he’s totally prepared to drop her because that means he won’t have to give up a big client he’s trying to sign. Mike, being Mike, doesn’t want to do that and unfairly accuses Harvey of never sacrificing, which causes a fight. Harvey points out that he has sacrificed everything, and then Mike throws the whole “I went to prison for you” thing in his face.

Donna overhears the entire argument and decides now’s not the right time to tell Harvey that she put their office lease in jeopardy. While Mike and Harvey were doing the Batman and Robin thing, the firm’s flirtatious landlord David Fox approaches Donna and tricks her into admitting that the firm restructured, which violates the lease and allows him to evict the firm in 90 days. Donna asks Rachel to help come up with a countersuit to save the firm, which ends up putting it in even more jeopardy because David never actually filed his suit and Donna’s suit violates the terms of the lease, which states that tenants can’t sue the landlord without first going to arbitration. So now, the firm has 30 days to move out. (Next: Donna and Rachel pull a Burlesque)
