  • Patrick posted previously unreleased photos of Meghan earlier this week
  • However, after they took over the internet, he mysteriously deleted them
  • Now, he has claimed that he removed them because of the actors’ strike 

Meghan Markle’s former Suits co-star Patrick J. Adams has apologized for sharing a series of never-before-seen snaps of the Duchess on set, claiming that they posed a ‘distraction’ from the actors’ strike and calling it an ’embarrassing oversight.’

Patrick, who starred as Meghan’s love interest in the USA legal drama from 2011 until she left in 2017, sent fans into a frenzy earlier this week when he posted a number of intimate photos of Meghan from when they were making the series together.

However, after the previously unreleased images of the mother-of-two quickly took over the internet, Patrick mysteriously deleted them all from his feed.

Now, the actor, 42, has claimed that the reason he removed them was because he felt it was not appropriate amid SAG-AFTRA’s battle with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.

‘The last couple of days, I foolishly and thoughtlessly let a trip down Suits memory lane distract me from the very real and ongoing fight everyone in @sagaftra continues to wage in its effort to win our membership realistic 21st century compensation and protections,’ he wrote in a message shared to his Instagram Stories.

‘It was an embarrassing oversight for which I’m incredibly sorry.’ 

Patrick added that he was grateful to those who ‘gently and swiftly corrected him.’

‘I look forward to continue the fight in the days and weeks ahead,’ he added, along with the hashtag ‘#sagaftrastrong.’ 

Patrick shared a carousel of throwback behind-the-scene images of Meghan and other Suits stars on Tuesday, which he captioned, ‘I miss my friends.’

One of them was a black-and-white portrait of Meghan, who turned to look at the camera with her hand resting against her lips.

Another showed Prince Harry’s wife lying on the floor with her bare feet resting on a cabinet alongside her co-star Sarah Rafferty.

He shared some more in another post the next day, writing, ‘This well is deep.’ 

One featured Meghan lounging on a soft and another saw her playfully sheltering under an umbrella.

A different shot showcased the former actress standing on set in a pencil skirt and white blouse as she stared at the ground and held a script in her hand.

If people were upset about him sharing the snaps amid the strike, it was not immediately obvious in the comment section.

In fact, many Instagram users were enthralled with the inside look into the making of the show and the brand new photos of the royal.

Some even speculated that his posts were a clue that the hit series was going to make a comeback. 

‘It can’t be a random throwback right? Surely has to be a Suits reunion or something,’ one person theorized.

Someone else wrote, ‘OK, I’m convinced suits is coming back because this can’t just be nostalgia.’

‘The reboot is coming,’ read a third comment. A fourth said, ‘Something’s coming…isn’t it?’

‘Don’t give us hope[s]. Is Suits coming back? After The Office [was] announced, this feels like a legitimate possibility,’ added another user.

On the SAG-AFTRA Strike’s website, it does state that members should not share ‘photos, videos,’ or any ‘social media posts’ that ‘promote struck work or struck companies.’

‘This includes work done in the past. Streamers and networks are directing fans to past content to fill the void resulting from the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes,’ it added.

‘Your influence carries weight with your fans. Let’s stand in solidarity together now to promote our cause so that we can promote each other’s projects in the future after we’ve won a fair contract.’
