Here comes the TV bride! Several weeks before her actual wedding to Prince Harry, soon-to-be royal family member Meghan Markle will get married—on the season 7 finale of Suits airing Wednesday, April 25.
Fans of both the royals and the USA Network legal drama will get their first full look at Markle in a wedding gown as part of her character Rachel Zane’s wedding to Mike Ross (played by Patrick J. Adams). Costumer designers selected an Anne Barge piece known as the “Versailles,” an A-line piece with a chapel-length train.
“Meghan Markle is the epitome of our vision for the Anne Barge bride,” the brand’s creative director and president, Shawne Jacobs, tells The Knot exclusively. “She looked amazing in our ‘Versailles’ wedding gown for the season 7 finale of Suits. We were honored to have dressed such an empowering and confident woman.”
In a press release, Jacobs added: “[We] wish her every happiness as she prepares to marry her dashing Prince.”
The floor-length piece, comprised of tulle and embroidered on the bodice, includes a plunging illusion neckline and an open back with a ribbon cinched at the waist. (The version above shows the embellishment in ivory, but Markle’s version in the show is black.)
The show’s teaser reveals other key moments from the wedding ceremony including when the couple greets each other before their fellow associates and best friends. “You are the husband I’ve always wanted,” Markle’s character Zane tells the groom. Both Markle and Adams will exit Suits after season 7.
The finale airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on the USA Network. Markle and Prince Harry will marry on May 19 at Windsor Castle.
