Meghan Markle‘s Suits family couldn’t be happier for her.
On Friday, several of Meghan’s former costars stopped by the Today show (filming live in Windsor) to open up about the American actress’ Saturday royal wedding. While Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty, and Gina Torres are some of the few confirmed celebrities invited to the upcoming nuptials, the USA Network stars issued only jokes (above) when it came to discussing Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding invitations.
During a chat with Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie, Rafferty teased that “doves flew out” when she opened her invite. The quips kept coming when Hoffman claimed that, along with an invitation, “MI6 were at [his] door.”
However, in all seriousness, Meghan’s friends were genuinely “surprised” when they made it onto the guest list for her big day. Torres admitted:
“This is an incredible step in her life, so to bear witness to that is extraordinary.”
And, per Gina, Meghan kept her royal romance pretty “close to the vest.” Although she knew that Markle was dating a royal, at first, she knew “very little” else.
Still, the Suits stars have since signed off on the ginger prince, as Hoffman added:
“He’s lovely. They’re a great match.”
Hear! Hear! According to Rick, he found out about Meghan’s relationship “quite early,” as he shared:
“I was like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me!’ It was both of us in the trailer, like, ‘Oh, my God! You’re dating a prince!’ I was like, ‘Take it slow. Be careful. Don’t let him hurt you.'”
Awwwwww. They clearly care so much about Meghan — which is a refreshing change from her attention hungry relatives!
Speaking of the Suits cast’s close bond, Torres noted:
“We worked together for so many years on the show. It’s such an amazing experience. We were with each other for longer than we went to college or high school with our friends. We became family, in a way; we’re still family. So, this is a wonderful family affair.”
You can say that again! We mean, just take a look at the way onscreen husband Patrick J. Adams is living it up in London ahead of the nuptials. Currently, Adams and wife Troian Bellisario are spending time there, as they also had an 18th birthday to attend.
Patrick and Troian shared on their Instagram pages:

The married twosome are expected to be at Windsor Castle‘s St. George’s Chapel for Meghan’s big day. Costar Gabriel Macht appears to have also arrived in the United Kingdom for the royal wedding, as his wife — The Real World: London star Jacinda Barrett — shared a pic in front of Buckingham Palace (below).

Although, per Jacinda’s Instagram account, the duo briefly jetted off to Cannes for an amfAR fundraising event. Hope they make it back in time for the “I Dos”!
Regardless, it seems like Meghan’s going to be surrounded by PLENTY of love on her wedding day! *Hugs*
