Meghan Markle's Suits co-star was blasted for her dramatic photo shoot with the Duchess of Sussex's jam.

Abigail Spencer, 42, was one of the lucky 50 to receive a limited edition jar of Meghan's new American Riviera Orchard strawberry jam.

Spencer was gifted the sixth jar in the batch, which she revealed in an over-the-top photoshoot that saw her reclining in the grass with the jam.

The actress appears to still be a close member of Meghan's inner circle, while several former co-stars have been notably cut from the royal's life in recent years.

Meghan, also 42, posed with Spencer last week on Instagram to support their friend Kelly McKee Zajfen's new Mother's Day campaign for her charity "Alliance of Moms".

Zajfen, 44, received one of the jams and gushed over it on social media, saying last week how she was "so proud" of the duchess.

The Duchess of Sussex sent friends the limited-edition jar ahead of the formal launch of her brand later this spring with a range of items.

The majority of the 50 recipients have yet to publicly acknowledge they received the jam.

Spencer showcased her pal's gift in an over-the-top photo shoot, where she held a bowl of lemons surrounded by flowers.

Smiling in a sunny garden with her dog, the Grey's Anatomy star displayed the ceramic bowl for all to see.

She captioned the post: "This jam is my jam. A delicious taste of what’s to come indeed… love you so M."

Some fans appeared sceptical of the photo shoot, with one user branding it "embarrassing".

Another said: "Not even an attempt to remove the c****y lemons and dead flowers?

"It's like a cheap farmers market basket."

Similarly, someone added: "Are you sure you want to eat that jam?"

However, Spencer's post was approved by others, including actress Mindy Kaling who commented it was "like an ad for sunshine and happiness".

American jewellery designer Maya Brenner, whose brand became famous worldwide when Meghan was spotted wearing a necklace with an "M" and "H" charm back in 2016, also commented on Abigail's post.

She said: "This is just the prettiest pic. And our Love Retreat necklace collaboration making an appearance."
