Suits star Patrick J. Adams forced to delete Instagram post featuring Meghan Markle

"I live in a world where you can’t post things about Meghan"

It was blown out of proportion.

Season 7 of Suits is currently being released in the US and is proving to be a huge hit with fans of the show.

It has rediscovered its mojo in recent seasons following a couple of meandering seasons which left some viewers pondering if the show had run its course. However, some clever writing combined with a welcome shift from the narrative of Mike Ross the fraud has won back some doubters and pleased loyal fans.

There’s also been some recent good news if you’re enjoying the current season as the show’s creator Aaron Korsh hinted in an interview with Deadline that he wants to come back for Season 8 and he’s planning it as an end chapter of the series.

This is despite the fact that some of the leading stars of the show including Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle only have contracts until the end of Season 7.

Fans are currently reeling from the midseason finale that aired in the past week, so they’ll have a little wait until the show reappears on their screens.

For the record, there are a lot of fans of the show. It was the second highest-rated show on cable TV in July, with only the behemoth that is Game of Thrones surpassing it in terms of ratings.

Aside from what appears to be an adoration of Gabriel Macht’s Harvey Spector, the show is well known for the on-screen relationship of Mike Ross (Adams) and Rachel Zane (Markle).

But of course, Markle is also in the spotlight for another relationship in her life. She’s dating Prince Harry, and as with everything Royal Family related, it propelled her from a famous actress in her own right to a household name in many ways.

And in a recent interview with Esquire, Adams revealed that things have changed since the relationship between the pair began. She’s famous on a global scale and when he posted an innocent Instagram of the pair, it took off online.

“I posted this old photo I had found of Meghan and I on set,” Adams recalls. It was a nostalgic moment, prompted in part by the 100th episode.

“I went to bed, and woke up in the morning and realized ‘Oh, yeah. I live in a world where you can’t post things about Meghan.'”

“I had this onslaught of people retweeting the thing, people thinking it was a recent picture, and I just thought, ‘What the hell is going on?’ It was such an innocent moment of sentimentality that was twisted into something totally different. It made me feel like… why put myself through this? We’re like brother and sister, it’s not like it was lurid or anything, but it just became a story that people wanted to talk about.”
