When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry wed on May 19, the world and the royal family weren’t the only ones enthralled with the festivities. The bride’s former colleagues from Suits were invited to the nuptials, where they got the special, firsthand guest treatment at the spectacle of an event well into the reception.
In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, two of Markle’s core castmates Sarah Rafferty and Gabriel Macht opened up about their favorite portion of the wedding, lending to questions like: Was it the lemon elderflower cake, or the rousing sermon delivered by Most High Rev. Michael Curry?
For Rafferty, who plays Donna Paulsen on the legal drama, the answer was rather sentimental: She loved watching Markle walk down the aisle. “It was a wonderful moment to get to see her on that day and in that moment. It was special,” she said. “Seeing [Meghan] walk in on her own, in that moment before she met up with Prince Charles to walk the rest of the way, that was amazing.”
Reflecting on so many of Saturday’s moments—-Meghan striding with grace and confidence into the church and her future, Reverend Michael Curry’s inspiring words, Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s sublime performance, and our little giddy bus ride through Windsor. :). Congratulations to Meghan and Harry, wishing you every blessings. We were honored to be included.
The two actresses, of course, are longtime friends both on the show and behind the scenes during the seven seasons of filming in Toronto.
Series lead Gabriel Macht, who plays the dashing Harvey Specter on the show, had a different moment to parallel Rafferty’s standout memory. “It was surprising to see Elton John play ‘I’m Still Standing.’ He’s still standing, he was incredible and that was an incredible moment,” he said.
“I think, overall, just to be a part of such an uplifting story, you know?” he added. “A story of inclusion, love––and there’s so much stuff out there that’s so depressing and dark. This was just a remarkable day to go and support her and the royal family and it was an amazing time.”
