Meghan Markle in a Suits throwback picture with Rick Hoffman and Patrick J Adams

Suits star Rick Hoffman has shared a throwback picture of himself with the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and Patrick J Adams during a table read.

The US drama, which ran for nine seasons until 2019, followed college dropout Mike Ross (Patrick J Adams) who ends up working with high-flying New York lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht).

The Duchess of Sussex played Mike’s love interest Rachel Zane.

Meghan quit Suits soon after her engagement to Prince Harry, and bowed out in a two-hour finale in season seven that saw Rachel and Mike tie the knot. Patrick also left the series at the same time as their characters moved away from New York.

Rick and Patrick’s friendship with Meghan has lasted past the show, as they were both guests at Harry and Meghan’s wedding in 2018.

The black and white snap he shared on Instagram is a reminder of how close the cast are.


He captioned the throwback photo: ‘A long time ago.. in a galaxy far far away… #repost #suitsonset.’

Rick has always been a great friend to Meghan. During the time she was accused of bullying a royal staff member, Hoffman apparently liked tweets about Markle’s kind actions throughout their friendship.

One of the many tweets he liked read: ‘She’s not a headline. She’s my friend. I love you.’

Patrick J Adams and Meghan Markle met in 2007 on the TV pilot for an ABC series.

However, they didn’t start working together until they landed their roles on Suits in 2011.

The two actors quickly became firm friends, with Patrick stating in an interview that they became close because they were the youngest actors on the set ‘with the least experience.’

All seasons of Suits can be streamed on Netflix.
