Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in May, and, only a few months later, a bunch of your favorite shows, as well as some new ones, decided to incorporate the royals into their storylines.

Recently, six different TV shows referenced the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the royal wedding and/or the Queen. Check them all out right here.

“Grown-ish” (Season 2, episodes 1 and 2)

The first two episodes of Freeform’s “Blackish” spinoff mentioned Markle in some manner. Zoey (Yara Shahidi) started out the season premiere by talking about sequels and how they can actually be good. She used the Duchess to make her point.

Images of some examples of sequels that are better than the originals were splashed on the screen. Childish Gambino’s second album and Kylie Jenner’s second face were shown, and then a picture of Markle and Prince Harry on their wedding day was put up, along with the caption, “Meghan’s second marriage.”

This was referring to Markle’s first marriage to Trevor Engelson, which ended in divorce, and how her sequel marriage to Prince Harry is better than her first marriage.

“Good on Meghan,” Zoey said. “Girl’s a princess now.”

In the second episode, Ana (Francia Raisa) talked about how “true love should feel like a fairy tale,” before saying, “I am Meghan Markle, and I’m looking for my Prince Harry. Hashtag ‘HappilyEverAfter.’”

“The Masked Singer” (series premiere)

Fox’s new singing reality series, which is based on a South Korean show and sees masked celebrities competing against each other, had Markle come up during the first episode. After the video clue package for the Unicorn played, show panelist Nicole Scherzinger guessed that a certain royal might be hiding under the costume.

“She’s so beautiful and regal,” Scherzinger said. “Meghan Markle. It’s Meghan Markle.”

As the pregnant royal retired from her entertainment career in 2017 and is busy attending royal events with her husband, it’s most likely not her, though.

“Lethal Weapon” (Season 3 midseason premiere)

During Season 3, episode 10 of the Fox drama, Avery (Kevin Rahm) babysat Roger (Damon Wayans) and Trish’s (Keesha Sharp) daughter, Harper (Mikayla B. Head), and told her about Markle’s royal love story.

“And then, she left her show on USA, married a prince and lived happily ever after,” he said, referring to the Duchess of Sussex’s show “Suits” and her marriage to Prince Harry.

Later in the episode, a drunk Cole (Seann William Scott) told Erica (Nishi Mjunshi) about his day, which included seeing his ex get a wedding dress.

“I didn’t get Julie’s [Haley Strode] dress, but I did see what Natalie’s wearing for her wedding day,” he said. “And she looked a lot like Meghan Merkle. Markle. Mackrel. Something with an E - L. I don’t know.”

“I Feel Bad” (Season 1, episode 9)

NBC’s freshman comedy, “I Feel Bad,” had a little surprise for Markle fans in one of its episodes.

Chewey (James Buckley) told his team at work that he grew up on an estate with a castle, which led Emet (Sarayu Blue) to ask, “Chewey, are you, like, royalty?”

He replied, “No, don’t be silly. No, nobility.”

Later, the topic was brought back up when Norman (Zach Cherry) said, “Me and Griff [Johnny Pemberton] have been talking, and we wanna come to your castle.”

“Yes, you’ve taken dumps at both of our apartments, so it’s only fair,” Griff added.

Norman continued, “And I know black people are allowed now because Duchess Meghan kicked down the door.”

The character was referring to biracial Markle becoming part of the British royal family when she married Prince Harry in May.

“The Neighborhood” (Season 1, episode 11)

“I cannot believe you went to the royal wedding,” a woman said to Calvin Butler (Cedric the Entertainer) and Tina Butler (Tichina Arnold) at an event in a recent episode of the CBS comedy.

“You know, it was great until the queen got a little handsy on the dance floor,” Calvin responded.

“Queen Elizabeth groped you,” a different woman asked.

“No, he’s talking about Elton John,” Tina replied.


Every episode of the game show features contestants sharing a fun fact about themselves, after being prompted to by host Alex Trebek, and one recent competitor revealed a connection she has with Markle and Prince Harry.

“What’s this? You have a brother-in-law who’s in line for the British throne,” Trebek asked contestant Nicole Cocklin.

“Yes, sir. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are ‘my relatives,’” Cocklin said.

She went on to explain exactly what she meant by that.

“The Duchess of Sussex is a sorority sister of mine from a different chapter. I didn’t go to Northwestern, but we have the same sorority letters. So, call me the royal aunt of their new baby,” the contestant said.
