After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attended Pippa Middleton’s wedding together last month, speculation that the couple might soon get engaged has hit fever pitch — but it seems that the actress is playing it cool in the face of such intense speculation.
Appearing at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas with her Suits co-stars three weeks after attending Pippa’s nuptials, Meghan, 35, was asked by one very direct reporter if she had hopes of getting married to Harry, 32.

Her response? Maintaining a dignified silence, albeit with a smile, demonstrating a level of poise worthy of any royal.
Her co-star Rick Hoffman also appeared to allude to her high-profile relationship when he joked that Meghan — who plays Rachel Zane on Suits — should read part of her script in a British accent, prompting blushes and a laugh from the actress and cheers from the audience.
During the panel discussion, Meghan revealed that she thought of her co-stars as “family,” explaining, “We were in a group email the other day and I was saying we’d all lived in the same corporate housing so on top of working together we were living together which makes a whole different dynamic, I think. We just became this whole family right out the gate.”
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight at the festival, Meghan’s co-star and onscreen love interest Patrick J. Adams revealed that he was “very, very happy” for his friend.
“Meghan and I have been such good friends for years now and to see her so happy is great. She’s super excited. I’m super happy for her and she’s been such a pro in this season and it’s going so well,” he said, before revealing that he was willing to “put in the hours” with the producers in order to snag a Suits cameo appearance for Prince Harry. “I’m sure it’s super easy and uncomplicated,” he joked.
