Meghan Markle is popularly remembered as Rachel Zane from her stint in Suits before she married Prince Harry. But did you know that the Duchess of Sussex had almost thought that she had lost the part when she auditioned for it eight years ago. In her now-defunct blog, The Tig, Meghan Markle had written about her experience and how she 'ate her feelings' in pizza and quesadilla after she thought she had wasted her chance to get on the hit TV show Suits.

The role of paralegal Rachel Zane came as a major breakthrough in her acting career. Speaking about her audition, Meghan had blogged back then and written, "I kept forgetting my lines, I was distracted. I wasn't in a place to be able to let it go. I wanted it, and I lost my shot at it. Or so I thought." 

She added that despite a not-so-great audition, Meghan was surprised to get a call and was reportedly invited for another audition. She recalled that for the second round she had to make do with what she could afford back then. Meghan had written, "There was no Tom Ford pencil skirt. Nor a pair of Louboutins on my feet, a Prada blouse was many moons away on Rodeo Drive, and I'd had my hair blown out at DryBar because it was close to my house and what I could afford." She went on to reveal that she reached the auditions in a "rattling car" and was nervous and hungry at the same time.  

In 2011, Meghan was finalised to play Rachel Zane alongside Patrick J Adams and Gabriel Macht in the legal drama. "I had no idea that this late August morning of 2011 would change my life. Suits stole my heart. It's the Goldilocks of my acting career - where finally I was just right," she wrote. 

Suits is now in its 9th and final season. Meghan left the show in 2018 after her engagement to Prince Harry following royal protocol. Her last appearance was aired on April 25, 2018.
