Royal Wedding was a tremendous TV experience: "How long has it been since we’ve watched live TV that was this giddy, this besotted?"
"Did we even realize how much we needed this: the predawn escape to Fairy Tale Land, the sneaking out of bed to let indifferent spouses snooze?" says Hank Stuever of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding that was shown live on a number of networks. He adds: "Usually it’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders scowling at us, followed by pundits scowling some more, with TV anchors whose heads shake permanently back and forth in exasperated surrender. Even the awards shows lately have been fraught with careful messaging. But on Saturday, from network to network, coverage of the royal marriage of Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle was technically flawless, surprisingly thoughtful, happily effervescent and unabashedly over the top. The combined force of it briefly created a safe space for dreamers and optimists, whether a viewer opted for the pure dosage of the BBC feed (on PBS and BBC America), or for something more pedestrian."

How Meghan Markle's Suits experience prepared her for the Royal family's world stage
Markle has already shaken up the Royal family and has only begun to make her mark, says Maureen Ryan. On Suits, Markle's "Rachel Zane was a supporting character — the core journey was not hers — but Markle brought passionate craft and lively charisma to her role," says Ryan, who has watched every episode of the USA series and moderated a panel with Markle four years ago. "Rachel's quest to be more than a paralegal and to exceed the high expectations of her accomplished family was as compelling as her desire to retain her moral center among a crew of New York legal sharks so intent on closing deals that the morality of their actions was sometimes (often?) a secondary concern. The ethics of many Suits characters have been painted in various shades of gray — and to be clear, that's not a bad thing. But Rachel always stood for something — several things, actually: a quest for fairness, a capacity for hard work, an affinity for compassion and truthfulness, and the desire to find an emotional balance in life and on the job.
Her new gig may well feature the same agenda, but on a much, much bigger stage."

Suits creator talks Patrick J. Adams' exit and predicting that Meghan Markle would likely leave
"We didn’t have to change things last minute because I made a decision early on — I don’t remember exactly when in the season, but Meghan’s relationship looked like it was going well," says Aaron Korsh. "And if that was the case, I guessed that if she married a prince that she wasn’t going to stay on the show. So we decided, in our hearts, to bank on her finding love and kind of having a fairy tale ending in her own life and assuming that good things were going to happen for her. Plus it would be easier to undo a decision to write her off than it would be to at the last minute have to make her leave. She would have to get hit by a bus or something, and I didn’t want to do that. So, as the year progressed we were assuming Meghan was going to go. And Patrick, when he came to his decision to leave, he knew we needed some lead time and that sticking us with that at the last minute would really put us in a jam. So he came to me early enough that we had plenty of time to design the back six around knowing that they were both leaving." ALSO: Korsh says Season 7's first three episodes contain some of "the funniest stuff we've ever done."
