Meghan Markle and Wendell Pierce filming a scene on “Suits.”
Meghan Markle on the screen of father Wendell Pierce shared a special moment with the American actress before she became the british Duchess of Sussex.
The 54-year-old, who played the role of Robert Zane in the usa Network’s “Suits,” told the BRITISH Telegraph on Tuesday he still “cherishes” one memory with the 37-year-old before they filmed the finale of Season 7 – the last episode that they played in together.
He told Markle, who appeared as Rachel Zane in the legal drama, that he is her boyfriend “it doesn’t matter where you are or what’s going on.”
“We had a moment that I cherish,” says Pierce. “I was with Meghan in her wedding dress, while we waited for a set-up [scene]. We were alone. I said to her, ‘Your life is going to change. It is going to be amazing, but I want you to know that I am your friend, and it doesn’t matter where you are or what’s going on – if the bowl you will ever begin to you – you can call me.'”

Pierce, who previously starred in HBO’s “The Wire” is also about the racism that was aimed at Markle, after he was cast as her father.
“Like gravity, [racism] exists,” he said. “You need to be always vigilant and prepared.”
Back in February, Pierce revealed on Harry Connick Jr. chat show that he and Markle used to talk about her romance with Prince Harry “in code” to prevent the spread of gossip.
“We always talked about him in the code really,” he explained. “You know, ‘How are you doing?’ ‘Oh, I’m going to London, coming from London,’ whatever.”
While many of Markle’s “Suits” co-stars attended the royal wedding at Windsor Castle in May, Pierce admitted that he was “not present” on the big day. He instead chose to celebrate from home.
