THE creator of legal drama Suits has confirmed Buckingham Palace changed a line of Meghan Markle’s dialogue.

The legal drama helped launch Markle’s career, and its creator has now opened up on the palace’s influence when she was still on the show.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, creator Aaron Korsh said the royal family “weighed in” on scripts involving Meghan.

She played paralegal Rachel Zane and left the show following the end of its seventh season.

On the royal family’s influence, Korsh explained: “Not many things, by the way, but a few things that we wanted to and couldn’t do, and it was a little irritating.”

He recalled one incident in which the royals objected to Markle’s character saying the word “poppycock” on screen to refer to a sensitive topic.

“The royal family did not want her saying the word. They didn’t want to put the word poppycock in her mouth.

“I presume because they didn’t want people cutting things together of her saying cock.”

The line was eventually changed to “bulls**t”.

Republic CEO Graham Smith tweeted that the move showed a “weird level of control and paranoia from the palace”.

Another commented that it was “ridiculous” while another questioned why the show’s creator didn’t refuse to change the lines when requests were made.

Korsh added that he was unsure how the royal family had obtained unfilmed scripts of Suits and that Markle herself was never responsible for delivering edits.

He said: “It might have been the directing producer at the time, or her agent. Whoever it was, they didn’t like having to tell me any more than I liked having to hear it.”

Prince Harry (above) previously revealed the palace’s intervention on the show in his memoir Spare.

He wrote: “Meg packed up her house, gave up her role in Suits. After seven seasons. A difficult moment for her, because she loved that show, loved the character she was playing, loved her cast and crew – loved Canada.

“On the other hand life there had become untenable. The show writers were frustrated, because they were often advised by the comms team to change lines of dialogue, what her character would do, how she would act.”
