He said, “I knew from a year ago that this relationship was burgeoning. And I had a decision to make because I didn’t want to intrude and ask her, ‘hey what’s going on and what are you going to do?” Therefore the creators collectively took the bait that Meghan and Harry were going to work out and wrote a natural exit for her character.
