“Suits” creator and executive producer Aaron Korsch released a statement wishing Markle and Prince Harry well:
I never imagined I would attend an event of this magnitude in my lifetime. It was beautiful, moving, historic, magical and a thousand other words that elude me at the moment. I’m so happy Meghan and Harry found each other and found love and that I was able to share in their relationship in a small way along with my wife and our Suits family.
Meghan and Harry I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, I wish you both a lifetime of happiness. And I believe the world is going to be a much brighter place for the two of you having found each other.
