Before Meghan Markle was the Duchess of Sussex, she was a star on the cable drama Suits—a part of her life she was able to share with Prince Harry just once, when he visited her on the Toronto set.

The story is recounted in Finding Freedom, the new biography of the Duke and Duchess from royal reporters Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand. The book notes that during Harry's visit to Canada for the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto—the event where he and Meghan made their public debut as a couple—the Prince was able to sneak in a little time to stop by Meghan's workplace.

Scobie and Durand quote a Suits production staffer, who recounted that special day on set: "He came in quietly, and a lot of people didn't even know he came until after the visit. He kept saying how proud he was of Meghan, but he also just seemed curious to see how it all works. He wanted to see the props department, and Meghan was more than happy to take him on a little tour with some of her close friends from the show."

The reporters also note that the cast and crew were "so gracious" about Harry's visit, perhaps because Meghan had stayed relatively down-to-earth while dating the Prince, even as the requirements for her security and privacy became more and more stringent (her name was removed from shoot schedules, and began bringing "discreet bodyguards" to work).

A crew member told the authors, "It did make things awkward at the beginning, and there was certainly a little jealousy from some people when she suddenly became the jewel in the crown of the show... But to most of us she was still the same old Meghan, who would bring fun snacks to set to share or hang around after filming to chat with fans outside the studio."
