Meghan Markle is less than a month away from becoming the wife of Prince Harry, and all eyes are on the bride-to-be as most of the world awaits the wedding of the year. Before becoming a member of the British royal family, the former actress claimed her fame on the USA legal dramedy Suits as Rachel Zane. As the public's fascination with her continues, so does that of biographer Andrew Stanton, who has some claims about what was and wasn't seen when Prince Harry shared some of his fiancé's Suits work with his grandparents, including the Queen. Stanton said:
He showed it to the queen and Prince Philip. Obviously not some of the love scenes between Meghan and Patrick J. Adams. Like the sex in the filing room and so on. I do find it amusing that those raunchy scenes Meghan appeared in on Suits and other movies are on the Internet, and yet she's scrubbed clean her blog, which includes essays on female equality.
It is hard to imagine the Queen, who once visited the Game of Thrones set, needing to be shielded from her future granddaughter-in-law's work on the series, regardless of the circumstances. Give the Queen some credit! Of course, if Markle prefers to set that part of her Suits career to a lower profile outside of royalty's peepers, then that is her decision to make. There was a lot more to her time on the series than the "filing room" scene, after all.
Andrew Stanton shared his insights on the alleged Suits edits with Fox News while promoting his new biography of the already beloved soon-to-be member of the royal family (although not as a princess). Even if the Queen would have been quick to blush and balk at the sex scenes, let's not forget that Suits airs on the USA Network, so it is relatively difficult to consider Meghan Markle's sex scenes particularly "raunchy." They are passionate, sure, but "raunchy" suggests another threshold of explicitness that would show up on a premium cable network like HBO, and not on USA.
While Meghan Markle's wedding to Prince Harry is almost here, we're much closer to seeing Markle's Suits character tying the knot. Markle and her co-star Patrick J. Adams are both leaving the legal drama at the end of Season 7, but before they do, their respective characters Rachel Zane and Mike Ross will finally get married. She will have a happily ever after ending both on-screen and off, so yes, it is a great time to be Meghan Markle.
Just like her career on Suits encompassed a lot more than her character's sexy scenes, Meghan Markle has starred in other things besides the legal drama. Two roles that media outlets seldom mention are Markle's leading parts in the Hallmark Channel movies When Sparks Fly and Dater's Handbook. In an interesting parallel, Markle is living a real-life storyline from the network's other TV movies, where members of royalty are constantly marrying "regular" folks.
