Meghan Markle's TV Fiancé Had The Funniest Response To Her Engagement

Actor Patrick J. Adams seemed a little blindsided.

When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their historic engagement on Monday, one person in particular seemed to feel pretty blindsided: actor Patrick J. Adams.

Adams is Markle’s “Suits” co-star and her TV fiancé Mike Ross. He tweeted his reaction to Markle’s engagement shortly after Kensington Palace announced the news:

It sounds like Markle’s “Suits” character, Rachel Zane, has a little explaining to do. Jokes aside, Adams later followed up his funny tweet with a sweet note to Markle.

“Playing Meghan’s television partner for the better part of a decade uniquely qualifies me to say this: Your Royal Highness, you are a lucky man and I know your long life together will be joyful, productive and hilarious,” Adams wrote on Instagram and Twitter. “Meghan, so happy for you, friend. Much love.”
