As far as relationships go, father often knows best. When it came to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s whirlwind romance, Wendell Pierce, who played Markle’s dad Robert Zane on Suits, definitely had a unique sixth sense.
In an interview with Extra, Pierce revealed the, um, interesting way he realized that Meghan and Harry’s relationship was serious.
As the Jack Ryan star explained, “I actually didn’t believe it was real, then all of a sudden I turn around and there is this guy from MI-5 on set every day.” Yep, Markle started showing up for her 9-to-5 with a member of the British Secret Service like it was NBD. Classic.
Despite the elephant in the room, Pierce could tell that “she was extremely happy” because “she had a glow” about her. “I knew she was in love…With the whirlwind of publicity and the world of being a royal now, the one thing that’s constant is the fact that I know she loves him,” he added.
Spoken like a true proud dad, Pierce.
