The Duchess of Sussex, formerly known as Meghan Markle, has made a return to the show that made her famous.

And, when Mike returned at the beginning of series nine, he was asked how Rachel was getting on.

Fans also speculated that the duchess would be watching and guessed at what her response to the mention would be.

Patrick Adams spoke about the reference to Meghan on Entertainment Tonight, saying it was an "obvious acknowledgement" that she's still part of the show.

He said: "For Mike, this is just a trip to New York.

"There's phone calls with Rachel saying goodbye and I love you, and, you know, I think there's some obvious acknowledgment that she's still there and a part of the show."
