In a strange mix of art and life that mimics each other, Megan Markle shows the walk in a wedding dress in the final episode of "Suits." Waiting for them is not a British prince, but the lawyer Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), the romantic interest of Rachel Zane, a character who has marked Mrs. Markle with a mixture of charm, conscience and grace over the seven-year existence of the show on USA.
The look doubles as the keystone of Mrs. Markle's career. She has said that she has given up acting as a full-time queen, officially becoming official on May 19 with her marriage to Prince Harry.
At first glance, it appears as a minor actor's heir. But as Rachel, she was a subtly influential force for a pulpy legal drama that had one of the most diverse occupations on television.

American mentor from Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht). Over time, she would get Rachel, the firm's hard-working legal clerk, to become a lawyer and turn her into a small group of colored women working on the high-level corporate law boards on television. And while "The Good Wife" (another legal drama that I persecuted to the end), finally, the absence of African-Americans in both his fictitious Chicago law firm and address his true cast in his last two seasons "Suits" began with Ms. Torres and Ms. Markle as two of her three female leaders. (The US is currently developing a "suits" affair for Ms. Torres.)
