She decided to retire completely from acting and focused more on her humanitarian work and new responsibilities as a member of the British Royal Family.
suits Creator Aaron Korsh spoke about Meghan’s departure from legal drama in an interview with Meghan BBC Radio 4 Today show.
“I knew this relationship was budding a year ago. And I had to make a decision because I didn’t want to jump in and ask her, “Hey, what’s going on and what are you going to do?”. So, together with the writers, we decided to take the risk that these two people were in love and it would work out. We decided to say, “Look, I’d rather see good things happen to Meghan in her life” – which would probably mean she’s leaving the show.
So let’s plan for that, and it’s a lot easier to undo when it comes down to it than just planning for her to stay forever and then finding out she’s going to go.”
