What will she say this time? Meghan Markle returns to the chat show sofa, this time with Ellen DeGeneres

17 November 2021

The Duchess of Sussex has given a new TV interview – this time to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.

DeGeneres released a trailer on her Twitter account, and said Meghan would be appearing on The Ellen Show on Thursday.

The high-profile interview comes eight months after the former Suits star’s bombshell chat with Oprah Winfrey.

Meghan and the Duke of Sussex accused an unnamed member of the royal family of racism during their controversial talk with Winfrey. They also said the institution of the monarchy failed to support the duchess when she had suicidal thoughts, and spoke of Harry’s strained relationships with the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge.

In the trailer for The Ellen Show, the duchess chatted about how she used to drive to the same Warner Brothers site for auditions.

Meghan added: “So to drive in today was very different.”

She said she would drive her “very, very old” Ford Explorer Sport and the key stopped working in the driver’s side door.

“I would open the trunk and climb in and then pull it shut behind me and crawl over all my seats to get out, that’s how I would come to and fro,” the duchess said.

Asked by DeGeneres if anyone saw her, Meghan replied: “No, I would play it off. I go like, ‘Oh, I’m just looking for my resume and my highlighters or my script’.”

DeGeneres wrote on Twitter: “A lot has changed since the last time Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, was on the Warner Brothers lot. Don’t miss the rest of our interview tomorrow.”
