Wendell Pierce warned the Duchess of Sussex that dating Prince Harry would change her life “forever”
The 55-year-old actor starred alongside the former actress – who was previously known as Meghan Markle – on the hit TV series Suits, and Wendell has revealed that he tried to warn the Duchess of the perils of dating royalty.
The star – who played Robert Zane in the show – told BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs: “When we had the final scenes I said: ‘Listen, your world is going to be forever changed, and no matter where you are, you can always know that you have a friend in me’.
“That was the last time I got to speak to her – and it was great.”
Although they haven’t spoken in recent years, Wendell still has fond memories of working with the 38-year-old Duchess, who married Prince Harry in 2018.
He shared: “It was great. She’s a really good actress and was always sweet, always kind.”
Earlier this month, the Duchess’s former agent accused her of being “naïve” about the pressures of royal life
Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne thinks that the ex-Suits actress was ignorant to the pressures and scrutiny that come with being a member of the British royal family.
Gina said: “She was naïve. I still think that now.”
The Duchess and Gina actually had lunch hours before the actress’s first date with Prince Harry in 2016.
Gina – who has not worked with Meghan since October 2017 – recalled the Duchess telling her about her planned date with the Prince.
She said: “She whispered it so quietly I had to ask her to repeat it. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing but I think she could barely believe it either. We were both extremely excited.”
