It's official: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged, and it seems like the whole world is talking about their upcoming nuptials. In fact, social media is full of celebrities congratulating Prince Harry and Markle, because yes, even famous people get excited about royal weddings. The best part of the social media chatter is that celebs are showering Markle with love. Everyone from Laverne Cox to Chelsea Handler appear to be enamored with the Suits actor.
Can you blame them? Markle is a total boss, and she was way before Prince Harry slipped a ring on her finger. Not only is she a talented actor, she's also involved in philanthropic pursuits, including working as an advocate for UN Women. Markle's also bringing her share of firsts to the royal family. According to USA Today, Markle is "the first divorced, biracial, Jewish American actress to join the British royal family." She's single-handedly redefining what it means to be a princess (even though she won't technically be an official princess.)
Prince Harry is wonderful too, and the celebrities of the world didn't leave him out of the love-fest, but it definitely seems like Markle has captured quite a few hearts. Her famous fans sent out warm wishes, hilarious requests, and lots of tweets for Markle and Prince Harry to have the happiest of lives ahead of them.
Markle's Suits Family Sent Her Nothing But Love
Markle's TV dad, Wendell Pierce, gave Prince Harry his blessing in the sweetest message imaginable. The world can rest easy now that it knows that Robert Zane approves.
He's not alone either, it seems like Markle's whole Suits family is excited for their longtime co-star.
Series creator Aaron Korsh also offered up kind words for the happy couple, as did Markle's co-stars Gabriel Macht and Sarah Rafferty. However, the best message came from Patrick J. Adams, who plays Markle's TV fiancé, Michael Ross. While Adams' first tweet was lighthearted, his second one made it clear how much he seems to admire Markle and her work.
Suits fans, if you cry a little while reading Adams' tweet, just know you're not alone.
Fingers crossed that Michael and Markle's Rachel get their happy ending before Markle embarks on her future as a member of the royal family.
