Even though the mum-of-two – who has son Archie, four, and two-year-old daughter Lilibet with Harry –admitted to having “no idea” why the legal drama has had a resurgence, she remembered filming the show with joy.

She said; “It was great to work on, such a great cast and crew. We had a really fun time. I was on it for seven seasons, so quite a bit.

“But it’s hard to find a show you can binge-watch that many episodes of these days, so that could have something to do with it. But good shows are everlasting.”
