The potential princess-to-be is hanging up her “Suits.”
Meghan Markle is reportedly gearing up to leave the popular USA Network drama “Suits” ahead of the show’s eighth season, along with co-lead Patrick J. Adams.
The show, which is in the middle of Season 7, has not yet been picked up for an eighth season, but one is “likely,” according to Deadline.
Both Markle, 36, and Adams’ contracts will expire after the current season, giving each a clean break.
Adams, 36, is set on exploring other career options, but won’t shut the door on returning next season as a guest or recurring character, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The pair’s characters are currently engaged.

He stars as bad-boy lawyer Mike Ross, who is engaged to marry Markle’s paralegal-turned-lawyer Rachel Zane.
“I think Mike and Rachel are a classic Romeo-and-Juliet story,” Adams told Vanity Fair. “They come from totally different sides of the tracks. Rachel has taken the path well traveled, worked hard, and followed the rules of the game. Mike is a naturally gifted, brilliant guy but has followed exactly none of the rules.”
Markle herself, meanwhile, has been in a high-profile relationship with Prince Harry for more than a year, and recently met his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
Speculation has run rampant in recent months that an engagement is imminent as the pair continue to make public appearances together.
