Now that Meghan Markle has finished her role as Rachel Zane on Suits, her on-screen father has opened up about keeping his costar's royal relationship a secret.
Wendell Pierce, who played Robert Zane, on the show, revealed that he knew about Prince Harry and the pair used to speak in code on the set of Suits.
“She met this nice guy and we always talked about him in code really,” Pierce said on the talk show Harry, according to Entertainment Weekly.
“You know, ‘How you doing?’ ‘Oh, I’m going to London, coming from London, whatever.'”
“I had a really wonderful moment as we were coming to an end of her time on the show,” he continued of Meghan.
“It was just she and I in the room and I said, ‘I know your life is going to change but always know, no matter where you are, I will always be your loving fake father.'”
When news of Harry and Meghan's engagement went public, Pierce tweeted a cute message of congratulations, writing: "Congratulations to my TV daughter Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on the news of their wedding engagement. Harry you have her TV Father’s blessing. Robert Zane approves"
