Royal Family Had This Meghan Markle Line Removed From Suits

The royal family‘s influence on Meghan Markle‘s career began long before she ever went public with now-husband Prince Harry.

Suits creator Aaron Korsh revealed as much in a recent interview, detailing how Buckingham Palace gave surprising feedback on the scripts for the wildly popular USA series that launched the Duchess of Sussex’s acting career. 

“I will say, and I think Harry put this in the book, because I heard people talking about it—[the royal family] weighed in on some stuff,” Korsh told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview published Aug. 29. “Not many things, by the way, but a few things that we wanted to do and couldn’t do, and it was a little irritating.”

Specifically, Harry’s family took issue with one very famous British colloquial term Korsh wanted Markle’s character Rachel Zane to say to her love interest Mike Ross, played by Patrick J. Adams.

“My wife’s family, when they have a topic to discuss that might be sensitive, they use the word ‘poppycock,'” Korsh, married to Kate Korsh, explained. “So, in the episode, Mike and Rachel were going to have a thing, and as a nod to my in-laws, we were going to have her say, ‘My family would say poppycock.’ And the royal family did not want her saying the word.”
