Markle has already shaken up the Royal family and has only begun to make her mark, says Maureen Ryan. On Suits, Markle's "Rachel Zane was a supporting character — the core journey was not hers — but Markle brought passionate craft and lively charisma to her role," says Ryan, who has watched every episode of the USA series and moderated a panel with Markle four years ago. "Rachel's quest to be more than a paralegal and to exceed the high expectations of her accomplished family was as compelling as her desire to retain her moral center among a crew of New York legal sharks so intent on closing deals that the morality of their actions was sometimes (often?) a secondary concern. The ethics of many Suits characters have been painted in various shades of gray — and to be clear, that's not a bad thing. But Rachel always stood for something — several things, actually: a quest for fairness, a capacity for hard work, an affinity for compassion and truthfulness, and the desire to find an emotional balance in life and on the job.
Her new gig may well feature the same agenda, but on a much, much bigger stage."
