Royal belle to step out of Suits for her prince

Exit fu­els more be­trothal ru­mours

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Sydney Confidential -

Meghan Markle is giv­ing up work for love. Af­ter weeks of ru­mours, it has been re­vealed the ac­tor’s con­tract with hit le­gal drama Suits, which airs on Fox­tel, is up af­ter sea­son seven and sources close to the set have said she’s not go­ing to re­new it for sea­son eight.

Markle is dat­ing Prince Harry and has been busy jug­gling her com­mit­ments to the tele­vi­sion show with her high­pro­file re­la­tion­ship.

How­ever it’s un­der­stood the 36-year-old Amer­i­can is look­ing to make a per­ma­nent move to London to be with the Bri­tish royal and also pur­sue more of her char­ity work.

A source told The Daily Star: “Meghan knows she can’t re­ally act at the same time as be­ing a princess and is happy to make this ca­reer sac­ri­fice”.

Royal ob­servers be­lieve the cou­ple will an­nounce their en­gage­ment over Christ­mas.

Mean­while, En­ter­tain- ment web­site Dead­line is also re­port­ing that Markle’s Suits co-star Patrick Adams is also not ex­pected to re­new his con­tract and will not ap­pear in the eighth sea­son. Markle, who plays Rachel Zane, and Adams, who plays Mike Ross, have been in the se­ries from the out­set. Ac­cord­ing to a source, the fact the two are leav­ing to­gether “will make it an easy break for Meghan”. Se­ries cre­ator Aaron Korsh has said in the past that he un­der­stood that ac­tors would be leav­ing the show. “They all have things go­ing on in their lives,” he said. How­ever, for the time be­ing Markle is still based in Toronto where the show is filmed. Over the week­end she was spot­ted film­ing scenes in a wed­ding dress. Suits has been a rat­ings suc­cess for Fox­tel’s Uni­ver­sal chan­nel in the past. How­ever viewer num­bers have be­gun to fall mid­way through the cur­rent sea­son.
