Markle, 36, played Rachel Zane on the cable
network drama, rising up the ranks from paralegal to lawyer. The
character is engaged to be married to Mike Ross, played by
Patrick J. Adams.
Markle has completed all her filming for the seventh season,
which will return in early 2018, the network said.
"We want to send our most heartfelt congratulations to Meghan
Markle and Prince Harry on their engagement," USA Network and
Universal Cable Productions, both units of Comcast Corp, said in
a joint statement.
"Meghan has been a member of our family for seven years and it
has been a joy to work with her. We want to thank her for her
undeniable passion and dedication to Suits, and we wish her the
very best," the statement added.
Markle and Harry, 33, announced on Monday they were getting
married in May 2018.
The couple met on a blind date in July 2016 and said their
relationship had blossomed "incredibly quickly."
