Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, has admitted she misses 'Suits' since she gave up acting to be a royal.

The 36-year-old royal was forced to turn her back on her acting career when she got engaged to her now-husband Prince Harry last year and, although she's clearly enjoying being a member of the royal family, she has admitted she feels sad about the fact she had to give up her role as Rachel Zane in the American legal drama. 

During a walkabout with Harry in Dublin on Wednesday, the brunette beauty - who was known as Meghan Markle before she got married - spoke to members of the public and revealed to fans that she misses starring in the show. 

One fan, Fiona Moore, recalled their conversation afterwards, telling HELLO! magazine: "I'm a fan of 'Suits' and I said to her that I miss it and she said 'so do I.' She seemed very relaxed and was joking and laughing."

But, although she's no longer on screen, Meghan has remained close with her former co stars and even invited them to her wedding at Windsor Castle on May 19. 

Sarah Rafferty - who plays Donna Paulsen in the drama - said: "It was a wonderful moment to get to see [Meghan] on that day and in that moment. It was special."

Meghan tied the knot with Harry in front of the world at St George's Chapel almost two months ago - and she's certainly had no issues settling into the royal family as she's attended numerous engagements since returning from honeymoon. 

However, although the former television star is enjoying her new life, her father Thomas Markle is devastated that she now lives in England and is convinced he'll never see her again because the royal family want "shot of him."

A source said recently: "Thomas is heartbroken. 

"He is at a complete loss as to why he has been excluded."

Thomas was asked to walk Meghan down the aisle when she tied the knot with Harry, 33, but, just days before their nuptials were due to take place, he was forced to pull out because he had to undergo emergency surgery on his heart in the US.
