It was with tears in her eyes that Meghan Markle first confided her ordeal within the British royal family. In March 2021, speaking to her friend Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry's wife even admitted that she had thought the worst.

We are smiling and doing our job, but we’re both just trying to hold on. And every time that those lights went down in that Royal Box, I was just weeping, and he was gripping my hand. And then, it was, ‘OK, intermission’s coming, the lights are about to come on, everyone’s looking at us again’, and you have to just be on again.

Recounting how she asked Queen Elizabeth II's entourage for help in obtaining medical treatment, she recalls:

I went to the institution, and I said that I needed to go somewhere to get help. I said that, ‘I’ve never felt this way before, and I need to go somewhere’. And I was told that I couldn’t, that it wouldn’t be good for the institution.

Concerned for his wife's mental health and safety, the Duke of Sussex saw no other solution than to leave the United Kingdom and the Firm.

Meghan Markle said goodbye to acting

No agreement was reached with the Royal Family, so Meghan Markle and Prince Harry started a brand new life in California. Away from her commitments to the Crown, the Duchess of Sussex was free to resume her acting activities. Except that she has not been credited in any productions since her return to Los Angeles in 2020. However, one project has revived the hopes of her fans: a spin-off of Suits, the series that brought her to the attention of the general public.

Meghan Markle will not be returning to Suits

After giving her character a happy ending, will Meghan Markle reprise her role as Rachel Zane? One of the series' stars quickly killed off fans' hopes. Rachel Harris - who played Sheila Sazs - met the writer and director of Suits, and he told her a few things.

He was very clear about the fact that there would be no members of the original cast in Suits L.A.

She added that no discussions had been held with Prince Harry's wife:

He didn't say anything to me about Meghan appearing. We don't talk about the Duchess. It's difficult. She's got enough to deal with. You know what I mean. Let's leave her alone.

Very attached to Rachel Zane, Meghan Markle had no intention of returning to filming, however. In her biography published on the website, she made it very clear: acting is now just a line on her CV.
