USA Network has submitted Meghan Markle for Emmy consideration for her role as Rachel Zane in “Suits,” a network representative told the Globe Wednesday.
Markle, who married Prince Harry last month, was submitted in the supporting actress category, the network said. Her co-star Sarah Rafferty — who plays Donna on the show and was also spotted at Markle’s royal wedding — was also submitted for consideration in the same category.
Markle is reportedly the first British royal to be submitted for Emmy consideration.
Meanwhile, Patrick J. Adams, who played Markle’s on-screen boyfriend-turned-husband on the show, was submitted in the lead actor category alongside Gabriel Macht.
The show itself has also been submitted in the best drama series category.
Emmy nominations will be announced in July. The awards ceremony takes place in September.
