Fans of Suits were undoubtedly disappointed when Meghan Markle failed to make a cameo about the serial final of the American legal drama, but it wasn't because she closed the opportunity – she wasn't even asked.
The 38-year-old Duchess of Sussex played the lawful lawyer Rachel Zane during the first seven seasons of the show until she withdrew from acting prior to her marriage to Prince Harry. Her new life as a royal was indeed part of the reason why Aaron Kosh, the creator of the show, felt uncomfortable asking her to resume her role.
& # 39; I was thinking about asking, and I was even thinking of coming up with audio images, and in the end I didn't ask & # 39 ;, he said Deadline after the final of season nine of Wednesday evening.
What do you say? Suits maker Aaron Kosh has admitted that he has never asked Meghan Markle to repeat her role as Rachel Zane (photo) for the show's serial finale, which aired on Wednesday
Honestly: the producer said he wanted to respect her new life & # 39; and did not want to place her in that position. Markle is currently touring South Africa with Prince Harry and their son, Archie
& # 39; I just thought, I'm going to respect her new life and not put her in the position to ask. We decided not to put her in that position, so I never asked. & # 39;
Although Markle did not appear, her character was heavily featured in an emotional montage that was broadcast at the end of the episode.
& # 39; I wrote that thing in the script. I am a nostalgic person. We talked about it. We weren't sure if it would work and we weren't sure how much to put in, & Kosh explained.
& # 39; There were certain people who thought we shouldn't do it. I was open to hear that we might not have to do it because we had many endings. All those people, when they actually saw it, decided that they wanted it, they liked it, & he added.
& # 39; Although Harvey (Gabriel Macht) was not present for every scene in this flashback, the idea that Harvey is at his office, thinking of his time in the company, of everything he has experienced over the years.
& # 39; For me, it adds to the good mood of the show. & # 39;

The producer also paid homage to Markle on Twitter by sharing and writing a throwback photo of them: & # 39; Young Meghan Markle and Korsh … & # 39;
When Markle left the show, writers Rachel and her husband Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) moved to Seattle to start their own law firm, but the memory of her character was still alive and good in the final – even when she was there it wasn't.
During a scene with her character's father, Robert Zane (Wendell Pierce), a photo of him with his TV daughter was visible on his desk.
The writers could not resist referring to the royal family with a subtle nod to Markle's husband, Prince Harry.
& # 39; You are not the prince of England, & # 39; tells Harvey Louis Ritt (Rick Hoffman) later in the episode.
The series ended with Harvey and his now-wife Donna (Sarah Rafferty) who were planning to leave New York to work with Mike and Rachel in Seattle.
It was not the first time that the show poked fun in Markle's new life.

When the character of Adams Mike Returning to the show earlier in the season, viewers could enjoy a hilarious reference to her success when asked how she was doing.
& # 39; If I told you how good, you probably wouldn't believe me, & # 39; he said.
The official Suits Twitter account then shared a GIF of the scene with a wink emoji and wrote: & # 39; Turns out Rachel REALLY does well. & # 39;
Not surprisingly, fans loved the joke and took the comments from the tweet to praise the writers of the show for the clever reference to the beloved character.
The season finale was broadcast just a few days after Adams went to Instagram to share a series of posts with behind-the-scenes photos from the cast – including previously unseen photos from Markle on the set.
The candid recordings show the former actress who relaxes between taking and posing playfully in front of the camera.
