After seven seasons on the show, Markle will step back from acting in order to focus more on her royal duties.
"I don't see it as giving anything up. I just see it as a change," she said in an interview with the BBC. "It's a new chapter, right? And also, keep in mind, I've been working on [Suits] for seven years. We were very, very fortunate to have that sort of longevity on a series ... I've ticked this box, and I feel very proud of the work I've done there, and now it's time to work with [Harry] as a team."
Rumors have been swirling for a while now about Markle's departure specifically, since her relationship with Prince Harry has been heating up for some time, but fans are still surely miss her.
Markle has been a regular on the show since its premiere in 2011, so Suits viewers will certainly feel the loss.
Before the news broke, Deadline reported that USA Network is still eyeing a renewal for the series, and though a Season 8 is not confirmed, it is reportedly "likely."
While this news is unquestionably disappointing for longtime fans of the show, with a royal wedding on the horizon, there is still plenty Meghan Markle news to get excited about.
