Meghan Markle’s Former ‘Suits’ Co-star Changed His IG Bio to Be About Her—Here’s Why

Could there be a Suits reunion on the horizon?! We won't get our hopes up, however, the legal drama has been trending all over social media after the first eight seasons were uploaded to Netflix this past June (and the series quickly jumped into Netflix’s list of most-watched shows).

Now, the revived interest in the show has caused Patrick J. Adams (AKA Michael James Ross), 42, to give a shoutout to his former co-star, Meghan Markle, 42, in his Instagram bio.

In his new bio, Adams humorously described himself as: “The guy from that show you're watching on that app because that girl married that prince.”

Adams may be onto something with his theory as to why Suits has blown up again. Of course, there’s no denying that the USA original was successful. During its 134-episode run, the show consistently pulled in millions of viewers, and it received noms at the People’s Choice Awards, the TV Guide Awards and the NAACP Image Awards. Not to mention, the series spawned a spinoff, titled Pearson. However, it may be Markle’s star power that has brought Suits to an entirely new audience.

Acquiring the series was certainly a savvy move from Netflix, who already has a multi-million-dollar deal with the Duchess of Sussex and her husband, Prince Harry.

Since inking their partnership with the streaming service, the royal couple have released a tell-all docuseries, titled Harry & Meghan, followed by another docuseries, called Heart of Invictus, which focuses on Prince Harry’s international multi-sport event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women. It's also been reported that the couple are making a film adaptation of the romance novel, Meet Me at the Lake. Suits may not be a Netflix original, but it's clear that Markle’s name draws in viewers.

If Meghan ever *officially* comes back to Instagram, we'd love to see her make a shoutout right back.
