Meghan Markle is back in legal drama Suits for the first time since her relationship with Prince Harry became public.

The Californian actress, 35, an active humanitarian campaigner, plays paralegal Rachel in the popular series which returned from a mid-series break on Wednesday. The last episode aired on September 14 – just weeks before Markle’s relationship with the British royal became public.

Prince Harry and Markle are believed to have started dating back in June. He then confirmed their relationship last November when he hit out at the ‘sexist and racist’ trolling of new girlfriend.

On Wednesday, Markle’s character grappled with the decision of whether or not to stay at the law firm of Pearson Specter Litt. She was forced to choose whether to stay loyal to her friends at the firm, but risk her dreams of becoming an attorney, or take the easy way out and take a job at her father’s firm.

Even though the firm is in chaos, thanks to a power struggle between two of its partners, Rachel chooses to stay.

Meanwhile Markle’s onscreen fiance Mike, who has recently left jail after the authorities discovered he’d been practicing law without passing the bar, discovers life is tough as an ex-con.

The TV couple’s tender embrace afters Mike finally finds a job may have been hard to watch for Harry.

But there is far worse to come as the mid-season premiere trailers see Markle cosying up with her co-star Patrick J Adams, who plays disgraced lawyer Mike. In another clip she is seen resting her hand on his thigh.

She also shared a less romantically-charged hug with another lawyer, Louis, after he offered her a job at the firm, and her onscreen father Robert in Wednesday’s episode.

Meanwhile Harry – and the rest of the world – got his first glimpse of what Markle would look like as a future bride in a trailer where she dons a wedding dress.

The promotional clip sparked huge excitement as the 35-year-old actress donned an intricately embroidered wedding dress – featuring a plunging neckline and a full chiffon skirt.

A teasing line ‘They’re almost royalty’ was shown on TV screens before a shot of Markle wearing a wedding dress appears. Although the tantalising hint was only a trailer for the show, it will only encourage speculation that Royal nuptials could be on the cards.

Speculation is rife that Meghan might not be a member of the show’s cast for much longer – and the actress’s private life could be responsible, with fans suggesting she could be moving to London for good in order to spend more time with Harry.

In a recent interview, series producer Aaron Korsh said that while Meghan’s character would not be written out of the show soon, there was no certainty as to what would happen in the long term.

While Harry has been linked with a succession of past girlfriends, including Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas, he is believed to be more strongly committed to his relationship with Los Angeles-born divorcee Miss Markle.

The couple are widely reported to have gone away together on holiday to Norway recently. And just days later after coming back to London, Harry is said to have introduced Meghan to his sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Absent from the actress’s hand in Wednesday’s episode was the henna tattoo she’s been spotted sporting after her recent trip to India.

Meghan, 35, was spotted at Mumbai airport recently with a temporary henna tattoo on her right hand following her five-day trip. She had been spending time in Delhi promoting young women’s health and hygiene for the charity World Vision Canada.

Prince Harry’s love interest took part in high level meetings with various NGOs during the visit, including an audience with Shamina Shafiq, a former member of the National Commission for Women.

American Meghan spent around five days in India before returning to Toronto, where Suits is filmed.

She was no doubt delighted to make the visit on behalf of the charity for which – like Princess Diana – she’s an ambassador.

This is not the first time Meghan, 35, has used her high profile to support causes close to her heart, as she’s also a United Nations women’s advocate for Political Participation and Leadership.

Her passion for activism is something she has in common with her royal beau.

Harry, 32, is well known for his work with a number of charities across the globe – in particular founding Sentabale, an organisation which provides support for children living with HIV in Southern Africa, and he is also a founding patron of the Invictus Games.

The pair, who are believed to have been dating since last June, recently enjoyed their first holiday as a couple.

Meghan and boyfriend Harry might have spent the Christmas holidays apart but whisked themselves away for a trip to Tromso, on the Norwegian fjords, where they whale watched and enjoyed romantic lake trips.

The couple had opted for a secluded cabin where they could enjoy maximum privacy.

Their accommodation had reportedly been picked following advice from Harry’s friend Inge Solheim, a polar explorer who has previous organised trips for the royal, such as a skiing holiday in Kazakhstan.
