Mike noted that being in the royal family is 'nerve-racking' 

"It comes with a lot of history and the family that it is. It’s obviously nerve-racking," Mia Tindall’s father, 38, said. "But [Meghan] has been under enough scrutiny and pressure in her day-to-day life so I’m sure she will get through it. She will be fine." Mike added: "As long as they are both happy that’s all that you can ask for. She’ll do absolutely fine."

"I’m excited as I’m a massive fan of Suits so I want to pick her brain more on that than ­anything else," Mike said.

"I’ll have to ask Meghan if she can get me in." Days later, Meghan’s co-star Sarah Rafferty told HOLA! USA that her cast would be happy to have a royal guest star. She said, “Anybody is welcome.
