The private lives of Meghan Markle, 38, and Prince Harry, 35, have been speculated about in recent weeks in the lead up to the release of a tell-all book entitled ‘Finding Freedom’. Tensions have risen from alleged clashes between the Royal Family and the Sussexes, which culminated in their decision to step down from their official roles in March. The rejection came two years after the royal wedding, which was widely attended by the royals, their friends and celebrities alike. During a reflection on the London nuptials, one of Meghan’s former co-stars from the US TV show ‘Suits’ made comments about Queen Elizabeth II.
In a breakaway from tradition, Meghan and Harry’s guest list did not include politicians – other than John Major, who helped as an adviser after Princess Diana’s death – in favour of inviting those with a “direct relationship” to the couple.
Instead of an affair graced with world leaders, people from the showbiz world, sports stars and others with connections to them were featured on the guest list.
They included a large number of the ‘Suits’ cast, who Meghan starred alongside until she finished filming in 2017 and her final episode the following year.
After the lavish event, her former TV show colleagues were grilled on what it was like to attend and if it differed from an ordinary wedding.
Gabriel Macht, who played Harvey Spector in the court drama, reflected that Meghan’s big day had been “absolutely surreal” and “sort of mindblowing in so many ways”.
He told the ‘Today Show’: “It was a remarkable day and to be a part of such an uplifting moment in history was sort of incredible.”
“This little man came up to me and he said I just want to let you know I’m the Queen’s Page and I love Harvey and I love ‘Suits’.
“I was like wow that’s amazing, you know, the Queen’s page watches the show.”
Gabriel revealed that he had met a “lot of their friends and family and some polo players” – where he relished being able to “integrate into their world and see how their culture works”.
He added: “They were all very witty and intelligent and charming and it was a lovely day.
“We all gathered as a family, shared three days there and I had a ball, you know, we had a dance party… and we had a great time.”
