Meghan Markle’s former Suits co-star has said he is ‘too intimidated’ and feels a ‘little scared’ to phone the Duchess. 

Canadian actor Patrick J. Adams, 39, who played Meghan’s on-screen love interest in the US legal drama for seven years, said it has been ‘wild’ to watch how ‘enormous’ her life has become since she left the show in 2018. 

Adams revealed the friends exchanged messages and gifts when their children were born but admitted ‘pure fear’ stops him picking up the phone and calling her now that she is living in Santa Barbara with Prince Harry, 36, and their son Archie. 

He told the Radio Times: ‘Quite frankly, I think I’m intimidated. I have no doubt I could pick up the phone and call her at any moment, but I don’t know what I would say.

‘After our children were born, there were some texts sent and gifts sent, but I guess I’m a little scared. I think it’s pure fear. 

‘I guess I’m scared about the idea of breaking through whatever walls exist to have that conversation.’

Adams, who was promoting his new programme The Right Stuff, the story of America’s first astronauts, said it had been ‘wild to watch’ her life unfold but explained they are not in regular contact. 

He added: ‘We’ve spoken and texted a couple of times, but Meghan’s life is incredibly full and she’s been navigating a lot.

‘We don’t spend any time together, but that’s not because of anything other than how completely enormous her life has become in so many ways.’ 

Meghan played paralegal Rachel Zane in the first seven seasons of Suits, departing the show before her May 2018 wedding to the Duke of Sussex. 

Adams attended the Sussexes’ royal wedding, along with several other co-stars including Meghan’s close friend Abigail Spencer. 

Speaking in another recent interview, Adams said he was proud of Meghan for speaking out on the US elections. 

The Canadian actor was asked whether he’d seen the Duchess since she relocated to the United States.

‘I think she’s pretty busy, but I am happy to have her back stateside,’ he told Access Hollywood on Friday. 

 He added that he is ‘very, very happy that she’s becoming very vocal and doing whatever she can to help the election in November.’ 

The actor, who attended Markle’s 2018 wedding to Prince Harry, also said he was no longer in regular contact with the Duchess. 

‘I miss my friend, but I’m very happy she’s doing well.’
