Meghan Markle’s former Suits co-stars are still reveling in the royal wedding that was – and who could blame them?

From the sparkling white gown, to the country-chic flowers and even the couple’s getaway car, the celebrations played out as if pulled directly from the pages of a modern day fairytale.

But it wasn’t any of those pretty little details that caught her former colleagues attention…

Sarah Rafferty, who shared a set with the newly-minted duchess during seasons one to seven, raved about seeing Meghan walk down in the aisle.

“It was a wonderful moment to get to see [Meghan] on that day and in that moment. It was special,” Sarah, who plays Donna Paulsen on the legal drama told Entertainment Tonight. “Seeing [Meghan] walk in on her own, in that moment before she met up with Prince Charles to walk the rest of the way, that was amazing.”

Meghan became the first royal bride to walk partway down the aisle herself in U.K. history, when she walked the nave of St. George’s Chapel unescorted during her wedding to Prince Harry. She was joined by her now-father-in-law Prince Charles for her walk through the quire aisle, where he then waited as she approached Harry herself rather than giving her away – again breaking tradition.

It was no-doubt a bittersweet moment for the brunette, whose father Thomas Markle Sr. had to pull out of the big day due to ailing health.

As for Gabriel Macht, who plays Harvey Spector on the hit series, seeing Elton John perform at the luncheon hosted by Queen Elizabeth II was a sure highlight.

“It was surprising to see Elton John play ‘I’m Still Standing.’ He’s still standing, he was incredible and that was an incredible moment,” the 45-year-old said.

According to the Daily Mail, cheeky chap Harry asked “Can anyone play the piano?” before Sir Elton dropped a medley of four hits – “Your Song,” “Tiny Dancer,” “Circle Of Life,” and “I’m Still Standing.”

Meghan is pictured with former co-stars Gabriel Macht and Sarah Rafferty.

Overall, though, the actor was simply pleased to be a part of the big day.

“I think, overall, just to be a part of such an uplifting story, you know? A story of inclusion, love – and there’s so much stuff out there that’s so depressing and dark,” Gabriel said. “This was just a remarkable day to go and support her and the royal family and it was an amazing time.”

Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, are now believed to be enjoying some much-needed downtime away from the spotlight as they honeymoon in Alberta, Canada.
