Meghan Markle‘s former TV show ‘Suits’ has been axed.

The 37-year-old former actress – who is expecting her first child with husband Prince Harry – played Rachel Zane in Aaron Korsh’s hit US legal drama from the first episode in 2011, until her last appearance in 2018.

It’s now been announced that the show will come to an end after the ninth installment, which will be 10 episodes long.

“‘Suits has played an instrumental role in our network’s DNA for nearly a decade,” Chris McCumber, president of USA Network and SYFY, said.

“I and everyone at USA Network sincerely thank Aaron Korsh, our partners at UCP and the entire Suits family for their tremendous creativity, devotion and support over a truly amazing run.”

Despite Meghan leaving the show ahead of her engagement to the Duke of Sussex, 34, most of the show’s cast, including Gabriel Macht, Sarah Rafferty, Rick Hoffman and her on-screen love interest Patrick J. Adams attended the couple’s wedding at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in May.

Hollywood star Katherine Heigl joined the cast when Meghan Markle decided to move to the UK and quit her acting career. 

“There are definitely some shifts in the vibe of the show now that Patrick  (who played Mike) and Meghan are moving on, but I hope fans will be comforted by the knowledge that everybody else is still here and still awesome,” Heigl previously told Harper’s Bazaar.

Meghan will no doubt be saddened by the news that Suits is coming to an end, as she loved playing her stylish lawyer alter-ego, and felt like “a kid in a candy store” when it came to picking out her outfits.

“Meghan and I loved Rachel’s clothes. We’d always say that, if we could, we would live in Rachel’s clothes. Designing Rachel’s look was like being a kid in a candy store,” celebrity costume designer Jolie Andreatta previously told Harpers Bazaar.

When she stepped down from acting to join the royal family, Meghan insisted that rather than dwelling on the end of her career, she would commit herself to making a change in the world with her humanitarian work.
