As Rachel Zane on the hit USA series, Markle rose to Hollywood prominence on the legal drama. Now, as she begins a new chapter of her life, her colleagues are airing their words of support.

Meanwhile, her on-screen fiancé, Patrick J. Adams (Mike Ross) flexed his funny bone while quipping online, "She said she was just going out to get some milk..." On a more serious note, he added on Instagram, "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. Meghan, so happy for you, friend. Much love."

Co-star Gabriel Macht sent his digital well wishes, tweeting, "Congrats to @meghanmarkle and Prince Harry. Sending all my best for your upcoming nuptials and a long happy life together. #love," while Sarah Rafferty chimed in with "Sending congratulations and wishes for every blessing across the pond today."

As for her TV dad, played by Wendell Pierce, he gave Harry his playful stamp of approval. "Congratulations to my TV daughter Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on the news of their wedding engagement," the actor wrote to his co-star. "Harry you have her TV Father's blessing. Robert Zane approves."

Phew! Prince Harry can rest easy now. Off-screen, Markle's real parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Raglandare equally thrilled about their daughter's upcoming nuptials. 

"We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry. Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents," they said in a joint statement, issued through Clarence House. "We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together."
