The world has been waiting with bated breath for a look at Meghan Markle's wedding dress for the upcoming royal wedding. While we'll probably have to wait until May 19 to see the real thing, fans now can have sneak peek at what it might look like, care of her character from Suits.
Markle's IRL wedding isn't the only one she's ramping up for in the coming weeks: Her Suits character, Rachel Zane, is set to marry her longtime on-screen love, Mike Ross (played by Patrick J. Adams) in an upcoming episode of the hit legal drama. Entertainment Weekly shared a series of exclusive photos from the impending nuptials, featuring Markle walking down the aisle in a stunning wedding gown.
The princess-style dress features sheer paneling, V-shaped low back, and lace floral appliqués. It's accessorized with a black ribbon around the waist, and Markle's character finished the look with her straight hair worn long down her back. Her maid of honor, BFF and work colleague Donna, appears to wear a simple black bridesmaid dress and carries white roses.
From the photos, it seems the Suits wedding may just be beautiful enough to rival the royal one. The altar is decorated with a cascade of purple and white flowers, and twinkly lights and greenery make the event look straight out of a fairy tale.
This year, Markle will be saying goodbye to Suits after seven seasons starring on the show. Suits creator Aaron Korsh has said he had a feeling the actress's departure might be imminent as he watched her relationship with Prince Harry evolve, so he decided long ago to have her character's life mimic her real one. "I knew from a year ago that this relationship was burgeoning," he said of Markle and Prince Harry in November. "And I had a decision to make because I didn’t want to intrude and ask her, ‘Hey, what’s going on and what are you going to do?’ So collectively with the writers, we decided to take a gamble that these two people were in love and it was going to work out."
Cheers to Meghan and Harry and Rachel and Mike.
