Earlier today, Patrick J Adams posted a cast shot on Instagram. Season seven filming wraps up on Friday.
More from The Hollywood Reporter:
'Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the NBCUniversal-owned cable network is close to a deal to renew its "Blue Skies" procedural for an eighth season as stars Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle plot their exit from the Aaron Korsh-created series.
Adams has been with the series for all seven seasons and recently started directing episodes of the legal procedural, the last remaining drama from USA Network's "Blue Skies" brand (before the cabler went darker after the success of Mr. Robot). Adams earned a SAG Award nomination for his role as likeable bad-boy lawyer Mike Ross. Sources note he is looking to pursue other creative avenues beyond Suits. The actor has been in contract talks for months but now appears poised to exit.
Markle co-stars as Rachel Zane, a paralegal-turned-lawyer at the show's law firm who is engaged to marry Mike. Speculation about Adams and Markle's exits resurfaced over the weekend as the duo were spotted on the show's Toronto set filming a wedding scene. Speculation that Markle, an avid philanthropist who also has been with Suits since its start, could exit the series began almost immediately after she started dating Prince Harry in 2016. Her departure opens the door for a potential royal wedding, which has been wildly speculated since the actress met Queen Elizabeth.'
The news was certainly expected and paves the way for Meghan to move to London this month. I have no doubt it will be difficult for her to say goodbye to Rachel Zane; not only did the role give Meghan her big break, but she's very independent and giving up her acting career is obviously a sacrifice she is happy to make because (it almost seems a done deal) she and Harry have planned their future. She has previously said, long before she met Harry, she would love to dedicate herself full time to philanthropy. A royal position is the perfect platform from which to explore that avenue.
How will Rachel Zane's story end? I don't want to give away too much (if you are a Suits fan and haven't already heard and don't wish to, avert your eyes :)). Meghan donned a wedding dress for filming in Toronto last week as her character finally got her fairy-tale ending and married longtime love Mike Ross. I'm sure there were jokes from fellow cast and crew members about Meghan's own possible nuptials. It was possibly a rather surreal day for her too as the next time she puts on a wedding dress it will be for her own real-life fairy tale.
According to Hello!, Meghan wore the Anne Barge wedding gown from season five (it's the character's second attempt to reach the altar). Founded in 1999, Anne Barge is renowned for timeless style with a contemporary twist. Enchanted by weddings from a young age, Anne Barge was destined for design. As a child, Anne spent many weekends sitting beside her mother, a concert pianist, through wedding ceremonies and special occasions alike. Inspired by real brides as they wed, Anne sketched gowns for friends and family until finally pursuing design school following her graduation from the University of Georgia. A favourite among celebrity brides and red carpet icons alike, Anne Barge has created custom designs for Laura Benanti, Johanna Braddy, Kristen Cavallari, Yvonne Orji, Violett Beane, Amirah Vann, Leah Pipes, Taraji P Henson, Amber Riley, Lauren Alaina and more.
The Versailles Plunge Embroidered Tulle Gown is described: "Fashioned from Italian fabric, this plunging V-neck gown is complemented by a sheer beaded back. Intricate tone-on-tone beading scatters out across a full tulle skirt." It's a beautiful gown; epitomising elegance and sophistication.
There's a great video of Meghan with close friend Jessica Mulroney from the day they were looking through potential wedding dresses.
The crew reportedly filmed the scenes during an overnight shoot at Toronto's King Edward Hotel.
Your faithful scribe got a tad distracted with talk of weddings and fairy-tale endings...back to the candid snaps of Meghan from the weekend.
Meghan wrapped up in the Soia & Kyo Saundra Parka (another brilliant ID from Meghan's Mirror). The piece is described as "a cozy Soia & Kyo puffer coat with a coyote fur ruff at the hood. Zip placket and four front pockets. Ribbed cuffs. Lined. Down fill". The fur trim has been removed from Meghan's parka.
Also tonight, with thanks to those of you who messaged, the Harry and Meghan: Truly, Madly, Deeply documentary is now available on YouTube.
Finally, the always informative Emily Andrews revealed Harry and Meghan have recently been away. No doubt we'll be seeing an exciting exclusive on that soon!
