It's back to the day job for Meghan Markle as the cast of Suits celebrate the show's seventh season and 100th episode.

Meghan (35) reunited with her cast mates in celebration of the 100th episode of the show on Tuesday.

The actress, who has been dating Prince Harry for over a year, plays lawyer Rachel Zane in the legal drama.

New images from the upcoming season see the ever-stylish Rachel looking sombre in the first two episodes.

Meghan has kept a relatively low profile since news of her relationship with Prince Harry emerged last year, and even shut down her lifestyle blog, The Tig.

The couple have attempted to keep their relationship out of the public eye, with no official appearances together as of yet.

In a rare appearance together, the Los Angeles native was spotted in Prince Harry's car en route to Pippa Middleton's wedding reception in May, and has travelled to and from Kensington Palace between shooting Suits in Toronto.

A royal engagement has also been reported to be closer than we think, with Westminster Abbey releasing a statement clarifying that Meghan is eligible to wed Prince Harry there, despite the fact that she is divorced (she was previously married to Trevor Engelson from 2011 to 2013).

"The Abbey follows the General Synod Ruling of 2002. Since then it has been possible for divorced people to be married in the Church of England," a spokesperson told the Daily Express.

Queen Elizabeth, Britain's longest reining monarch, is said to have approved of the budding romance early on and royal insiders expect him to pop the question in the coming months.

Talk of the couple getting hitched comes just after Harry and Meghan were snapped sharing a kiss at the Audi Polo Challenge at Coworth Park in Ascot earlier this month. "She was absolutely lovely and was chatting with everyone at the polo", the insider added.

"She gets British humour and was laughing at everyone's jokes. She was saying that she loves horses, but doesn't ride so would like Harry to teach her."
