TV legend Larry King once asked Meghan Markle about her "seductive" Suits character in a cheeky exchange.

The beloved US broadcasting giant, who carried out approximately 50,000 interviews during his career, was pronounced dead at the age of 87 on Saturday, January 23.

Earlier this month, he had been taken to hospital to be treated for coronavirus.

Back in 2013, Larry interviewed Meghan and co-star Patrick J Adams about their experiences on the set of hit TV show Suits.

During it, he asked Meghan about her character, Rachel Zane.

The Duchess of Sussex started explaining that she was a paralegal at the law firm.

Larry then chimed in: “Seductive?”

Meghan responded: “I don’t know, do you think so Larry?”

The host said it was “just a comment” as Meghan and Patrick started laughing. According the US reports, Meghan appeared "flustered".

During the interview, Meghan also showed off her calligraphy skills.

She said: “I went to an all girls Catholic school, handwriting class was one of those lost arts.”

Larry jokingly asked: “How do calligraphers get paid? I mean, who employs calligraphers – wedding reception people?”

Meghan then jotted down “I love Larry King” in her impeccable handwriting.

In a 2018 documentary, Larry said that Princess Diana would have approved of her marriage to Prince Harry.
