THE Duchess of Sus­sex’s for­mer Suits co-star has ad­mit­ted he is now “in­tim­i­dated” to call her, say­ing her life has be­come “com­pletely enor­mous” and is “wild to watch”.

Pa­trick J Adams, who played the then-meghan Markle’s hus­band in the Net­flix le­gal drama, said he is a “lit­tle scared” to pick up the tele­phone, not know­ing what he would say to her.

In an in­ter­view with Ra­dio Times, he said it was “hard to watch” her new life and the scru­tiny it comes with, prais­ing how she is “han­dling her­self very well”.

Say­ing they had been in touch via text and swapped gifts for the births of their chil­dren, he said they no longer spend time to­gether be­cause “Meghan’s life is in­cred­i­bly full and she’s been nav­i­gat­ing a lot”.

Asked what was stop­ping him pick­ing up the tele­phone, Adams said:

“Quite frankly, I think I’m in­tim­i­dated.

“I have no doubt I could pick up the phone and call her at any moment, but I don’t know what I would say.

“Af­ter our chil­dren were born, there were some texts sent and gifts sent, but I guess I’m a lit­tle scared.

“I think it’s pure fear. I guess I’m scared about the idea of break­ing through what­ever walls ex­ist to have that con­ver­sa­tion.”

Adams was a guest at the wed­ding of Prince Harry and Ms Markle in May 2018, along with many of her Suits costars.

In an in­ter­view about his new pro­gramme The Right Stuff, the story of Amer­ica’s first as­tro­nauts, he said of the Duchess’s life now: “It’s been wild to watch. I have a lot of em­pa­thy for any­body whose life be­comes dis­cussed all over the planet by peo­ple who prob­a­bly know less than 1 per cent about what’s truly go­ing on be­hind closed doors.

“Know­ing how com­pas­sion­ate she can be, it’s hard to watch be­cause you want your friends to be left alone to build their life to­gether.”

The full in­ter­view is in Ra­dio Times, out now.
