It turns out Ms Markle could have been a perfect undercover agent if the stage and now the royal family hadn't called to her. The princess-to-be has, according to Suits co-star, Wendell Pierce excellent skills at keeping very important news (her relationship with the most eligible bachelor in the world) strictly on the DL and even spoke in code when she did mention her now fiancée, Prince Harry.

Entertainment Weekly reports in an interview on Harry Connick Jr.'s talk show Harry, Pierce - who plays Markle's father on the show - said, "She met this nice guy and we always talked about him in code really. You know, 'How you doing?' 'Oh, I'm going to London, coming from London, whatever.'"

In other Markle and Prince Harry news, The Cut reports the couple have plans for Valentine's Day - or V-Day eve atleast - they're heading to Scotland on February 13 for their first official work trip to Edinburgh. It's unknown whether they'll stay overnight and spend Feb 14 in the highland capital or return to London - but where ever they are they'll be together which is romantic enough after living on different continents for the majority of their relationship.
