Wendell Pierce, Meghan Markle's close friend and former Suits co-star, has provided an update on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's marriage. During an appearance at the 2024 Tony Awards in New York on June 16, Pierce shared his observations about the couple's relationship.

Pierce, who played Robert Zane, the father of Meghan's character Rachel Zane on Suits, revealed that he had a chance to catch up with Meghan Markle during her visit to the city last year. "When [Meghan] came into town, she got an award last year, and I had a chance to say hello and wish her and Prince Harry well and wish the children well," he said, as reported by the People. "They look very much in love and were very happy, so that's the most important thing."

The actor's comments offer a rare glimpse into the private lives of Prince Harry and Meghan, who have been the subject of intense media scrutiny since their marriage in 2018. Pierce emphasized the enduring bond between the couple, noting their happiness during their brief reunion.

Pierce's reflections come amid ongoing speculation about the couple's life in the United States and their professional endeavors. Last month, Meghan Markle shared an update on their marriage following their tour in Nigeria. Despite the pressures and public attention, the couple appears to remain united and content.

The Duke of Sussex, however, chose not to send a public message to King Charles on Father's Day. In contrast, his older brother Prince William posted a tribute to their father on social media, featuring a throwback photograph taken before Prince Harry's birth.

Pierce's relationship with Meghan extends back to their days on Suits, which aired from 2011 to 2019. "Working with Meghan was a blast," Pierce reminisced. "I've gotten to see her just a few times since, and we've been able to reminisce and have fond memories of working together."

Suits, which gained renewed popularity on Netflix last summer, introduced Meghan Markle to a wider audience. The show saw record-breaking viewership, with 26.5 billion minutes watched in just eight weeks. Meghan starred as paralegal Rachel Zane for seven seasons before leaving the show in 2017, shortly before announcing her engagement to Prince Harry.

The resurgence of Suits has sparked discussions about a potential spinoff, centered around a new character named Ted Black, played by Stephen Amell. This announcement has led to speculation about whether Meghan might return to acting. While there has been no official confirmation, the possibility remains intriguing for fans.

Patrick J. Adams, who played Mike Ross on Suits, hinted at the prospect of a reunion during the 2024 Golden Globes. "Sure. Mike and Rachel in Seattle. They gotta come down to LA. They gotta fix some stuff," he teased. Although it remains uncertain, the excitement among fans is palpable.

Meanwhile, Meghan is focused on her new lifestyle brand, American Riviera Orchard. The Duchess has begun a soft launch, introducing a limited edition line of jams and dog biscuits to close friends and influencers. The brand, which Meghan unveiled on Instagram in March, is expected to offer a variety of home goods, including cookbooks, foods, and kitchenware.

The American Riviera Orchard Instagram page features the tagline "by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex" and notes the brand's establishment in 2024. The brand's website highlights its connection to Montecito, the neighborhood where Meghan and Harry relocated after stepping down from their royal duties in 2020.

Sources suggest that Meghan may also be filming a cooking show as part of her and Harry's multi-million dollar deal with Netflix, which is set to conclude in 2025. This venture marks a new chapter for Meghan, blending her passion for lifestyle content with her entrepreneurial spirit.
