Meghan Markle's Suits scripts had to be 'approved by the Palace who banned her being pictured in a wedding dress'

Royal author Tom Bower claims the Palace ordered Meghan not to be pictured wearing a wedding dress

Meghan Markle had her Suits scripts checked by Kensington Palace, a biography has claimed.

Meghan starred as Rachel Zane in the US drama between 2011 and 2018.

But after meeting Harry in 2016, the Palace “stepped in to control Meghan’s life”, royal author Tom Bower said.

Mr Bower’s comments came in his newly-released biography: “Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War between the Windsors”.

Within the biography, Mr Bower wrote: "Fearing the worst, from bitter experience, the Palace stepped in to control Meghan’s life. Aaron Korsh (TV producer) was told to submit all future Suits scripts to Nick Collins, Meghan’s agent.

"Scripts were thereafter forwarded to Kensington Palace for approval. Orders for changes of words were sent back from London to Los Angeles.

"The most important demand concerned Meghan’s last scene at her ‘wedding’ to Mike. No photographs, the Palace ordered, were to be shot of Meghan wearing a wedding dress.

"Between filming, she was always to wear a jacket over the dress. The atmosphere in the studio changed.

"Some actors and staff discovered that Meghan’s attitude occasionally stiffened. Sometimes she arrived late and her empathy occasionally morphed into near-arrogance.

"Meghan had markedly shifted from the early days when she held a prayer meeting with the Suits cast before filming started.

"Tongue-in-cheek, the Suits scriptwriters took a licence with Zane’s final words before she says, ‘I do.’

"Thinking of Harry, Meghan delivered the lines to her on-stage husband Mike, ‘You are the strongest man I have ever met and you make me stronger . . . you’re the husband I’ve always wanted and I can’t wait to start our adventure together.’"
