Britain's Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has received a cheeky nod from her former TV series Suits in its final season. 

The former actress starred as Rachel Zane in the New York-set legal drama from 2011 until her final episode aired last year.

In the new series, Rachel's onscreen husband Mike Ross, played by Patrick J Adams, pays a visit from Seattle and is asked how Rachel is getting on.

"If I told you how good, you probably wouldn't believe me," he replies.

Suits has tweeted the clip with the caption: "Turns out Rachel is doing REALLY well."

Adams was among the guests at his former co-star's wedding to Britain's Prince Harry in May 2018.

Earlier this summer it was announced that the Duchess of Sussex would not be making a return to Suits for the show's final season, but her character would be mentioned by others on the series.
