Meghan Markle might have swapped the set of Suits for Kensington Palace, but despite her new royal duties it seems that she’s certainly not neglecting the friendships she forged throughout seven seasons of filming. First, her Suits_ _co-stars, including on-screen husband Patrick J. Adams, Sarah Rafferty, Gina Torres, Gabriel Macht and his wife Jacinda Barrett, were guests of honour when Meghan married Prince Harry at Windsor Castle earlier this month. Now, two of her former colleagues are returning the favour: Gabriel (perhaps best known as Suits’s lead character Harvey Specter) and Jacinda have reportedly invited Meghan and Harry to stay with them when they visit Australia as part of their first royal tour as a couple.
The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex have scheduled a trip to Sydney to coincide with the fourth Invictus Games, which they’ll follow up with official visits to Tonga, Fiji and New Zealand in their capacities as youth ambassadors to the Commonwealth. Once the Games have wound down in Sydney, the Mirror has reported, the couple have a gap in their schedule when they’ll have the chance to stay with Gabriel, Jacinda and their children at their home in Noosa on the Sunshine Coast off Queensland.
‘Harry and Meghan have a window free and Gabriel and his wife have invited them to their beautiful Queenslander-style house,’ a source told the paper. ‘It’s an incredible place and will be perfect for them to chill out before they go on what is likely to be a fairly non-stop tour.’
‘They’ll have a great time and they’ll have a chance to see the real Australia after the bustle of Sydney,’ the source continued, adding that fellow Suits star Sarah Rafferty has also been invited along for the visit.
