Leaving one long-term job to start an entirely new career can be a daunting and difficult process—even if you're making that transition from a starring role on a TV series to a lifetime position in the British royal family. Just ask Meghan Markle: While she and Prince Harry were in Ireland last week for their first official royal tour together, the Duchess of Sussex reportedly told a well-wisher that, like you, she also misses Suits.

Upon leaving the Irish Emigration Museum in Dublin on Wednesday, Harry and Meghan stopped to chat with members of the public waiting outside, including Dubliner Fiona Moore, according to the Daily Mail. "I'm a fan of Suits and I said to her that I miss it, and she said, 'So do I,'" Moore told the outlet, adding that Markle "seemed very relaxed and was joking and laughing" while greeting other locals in the Irish capital.

Throughout her transition from Hollywood to Kensington Palace, Markle seems to have stayed in touch with her former Suits costars, hopefully making the career change a little easier. In May, several of her fellow actors, including Patrick J. Adams, Gina Torres, Sarah Rafferty, Gabriel Macht, Rick Hoffman, and Abigail Spencer, received invitations to the royal wedding—though, unfortunately, they didn't make the cut for the ultra-exclusive guest list for the evening wedding reception. And later this fall, Markle will reportedly reunite with Macht and Rafferty when she and Prince Harry take a quick break from royal duties to stay at Macht's Queensland, Australia, home.

Though Suits fans were hoping a mini-reunion could happen even sooner, at this September's Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony, those dreams were dashed last week, when the long-running series was completely shut out from the list of nominees. That said, Markle's submission for Emmy consideration made her the first British royal to ever be considered by the Television Academy, a pretty major achievement on its own.
