The Royals have done it again, put their nose where it doesn’t belong. Other than the spotlight on the romantic life of Prince Harry, his now-wife Meghan Markle had her life controlled by her in-laws. She rose to fame for her role as Rachel Zane, the paralegal in the American law drama ‘Suits‘ created by Aaron Korsh. Starring alongside Markle were Patrick J. Adams, Gabriel Match, and Sarah Rafferty, and the series has been smashing streaming records this summer.
While still playing Rachel Zane, Markle was already dating Prince Harry and once they became the real deal, the Royals couldn’t help themselves but to get involved in her career. Aaron Korsh, along with the writers were extremely frustrated with this unnecessary involvement. Continue reading to know what Aaron Korsh actually had to say about this issue.
Royal Family Secretly Accessed ‘Suits’ Script And Changed Meghan Markle’s Lines
Using power for the wrong purpose is not exactly royal! In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Aaron Korsh shared what it was like to work with Meghan Markle as she dated Prince Harry late in the show’s run. He said, “The royal family weighed in on some stuff. Not many things, by the way, but a few things that we wanted to do and couldn’t do, and it was a little irritating.”
Korsh added, “I remember one was a particular line of dialogue and, look, I’ll just say what the line was. My wife’s family, when they have a topic to discuss that might be sensitive, they use the word, poppycock. Let’s say you wanted to do something that you knew your husband didn’t want to do, but you wanted to at least discuss it, and in just discussing it, you wouldn’t hold him to anything he said, you’d be like, ‘It’s poppycock. So, in the episode, Mike and Rachel were going to have a thing, and as a nod to my in-laws, we were going to have her say, My family would say poppycock.”
Sadly this line in particular didn’t sit well with the royal family. “They didn’t want to put the word ‘poppycock’ in her mouth. I presume because they didn’t want people cutting things together of her saying ‘cock”, Korsh speculated. “So, we had to change it to ‘bulls**t’ instead of ‘poppycock,’ and I did not like it because I’d told my in-laws that [poppycock] was going to be in the show. There was maybe one or two more things, but I can’t remember.”
