MEGHAN Markle had to be careful when she was filming Suits so that fans didn’t mistake her fake engagement ring on the show for being engaged to Prince Harry.
According to her on-screen dad Wendell Pierce, who played Robert Zane, Meghan had a close call on one occasion and was forced to quickly remove it in public.
Fans will remember that Meghan, who played Rachel Zane, got engaged to Mike Ross in the season four finale.
After calling the wedding off, the on-screen couple eventually got married at the end of season seven, in scenes that aired in 2018.
Wendell told KTLA 5 that he realised Meghan was dating Prince Harry after spotting an MI5 man on set.
On one particular occasion, the security man pointed out the actress was still wearing her fake diamond sparkler.
Wendell said: “Then one time, we were doing a scene before they got engaged where she was engaged with Mike on the show and they said, ‘Wait, don’t get out of the car’.
“They said, ‘Give us the ring because there’s a paparazzi down the street.’”
The actor said the security men were worried that if photos of Meghan wearing a ring were released it would cause a frenzy.
When Meghan and Harry first starting dating, the prince was keen to keep the romance private.
In a statement, released by Kensington Palace, Harry said his American girlfriend was being harassed and in a sign of how serious it was, made an unprecedented appeal for them to be left in peace.
After about a year of dating, the lovebirds announced they were getting engaged on November 27, 2017.
The pair tied the knot in May 2018, just weeks after Rachel and Mike got married on Suits.
The Duke of Sussex, 35, had initially hoped to propose to Meghan, 38, in the exotic surroundings of Botswana, according to 2019 Channel 5 documentary Meghan Markle: Movies, Marriage and Motherhood.
However, it wasn’t how it played out in reality.
During their engagement interview with BBC in November, 2017, Prince Harry said: “It happened a few weeks ago, earlier this month, here at our cottage; just a standard typical night for us.
“We were roasting a chicken, trying to roast a chicken."
Meghan added: “It was so sweet and natural and very romantic."
