The Meghan Markle and Prince Harry saga has been a controversial topic in recent years for many reasons, but I bet you didn’t know that the Royal Family did this when Markle was on the cast of the Netflix show “Suits.”
Royal Romance and Hollywood Drama
When Meghan Markle’s love story with Prince Harry unfolded, she was also starring in the legal drama “Suits.”
Now, one of the show’s creators spills the beans on behind-the-scenes royal secrets.
Resurgence of “Suits”
Aaron Korsh, one of the minds behind “Suits,” reflected on how Markle’s involvement brought a resurgence to the show’s popularity, attracting global attention.

Korsh revealed rare instances when the Royal Family offered input on the show’s content, revealing one word that Markle simply could not say.
Royal Influence on Scripts
Korsh admits that the royals weighed in on select script elements, impacting the team’s creative decisions on more than one occasion, “Not many things, by the way, but a few things that we wanted to do and couldn’t do, and it was a little irritating.” he said.
A Certain Word Raises Eyebrows
Recalling one bizarre request, Korsh unveiled the surprising word that caught the attention of the royals and sparked a creative tussle, “I remember one was a particular line of dialogue and, look, I’ll just say what the line was.” he began.
The Forbidden Word
The disputed word “poppycock” became a point of contention due to its sensitive connotations, leaving the creators grappling with the creative consequences.
Delicate Family Dynamics
Korsh explained the context behind the word, “My wife’s family, when they have a topic to discuss that might be sensitive, they use the word, ‘poppycock.’
“Poppycock” Episode Explained
“So, in the episode, Mike and Rachel [Markle’s character] were going to have a thing, and as a nod to my in-laws, we were going to have her say, “My family would say poppycock,” he admitted.
The Real Reason Behind the Censorship
Korsh explains his theory towards why she couldn’t say the word, “They didn’t want to put the word “poppycock” in her mouth.” he says, before revealing that they didn’t want people editing the footage so that she says an expletive.
A Curious Alternative
With insight into the revised script, Korsh detailed how the forbidden word was swapped for a famous crude phrase about a certain animal that describes when someone is lying, which he wasn’t happy about, “.I did not like it because I’d told my in-laws that [poppycock] was going to be in the show. There was maybe one or two more things, but I can’t remember.”
Protecting Royal Image
The royals’ concerns about the chosen word revealed the lengths they would go to in order to safeguard the image associated with the Royal Family and its members.
