The 35-year-old, who plays Adams’ fiancée on the USA Network hit, was spotted heading to a yoga class in Toronto on Saturday as the couple tied the knot in a rustic outdoor ceremony in California in front of 200 family members and friends including SuitsSarah Rafferty, Pretty Little LiarsKeegan Allen, Star Trek‘s Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto and Scandal‘s Katie Lowes and husband Adam Shapiro.

A source tells Us Weekly that Prince Harry‘s girlfriend was invited to the three-day celebration but decided not to attend the wedding in order to avoid overshadowing the newlyweds.

Markle, who was recently reunited with her royal beau when he visited her in Toronto, spoke to Adams about the wedding and “they both kind of agreed that maybe her coming would attract too much (of the wrong kind of) attention,” the source tells Us. “They both thought it sucked.”

A source close to the newlyweds, meanwhile, says, “Meghan had no plans to attend the wedding, and that conversation never happened.”
