Meghan Markle made a surprise appearance on an episode of The Ellen Show, which aired in the US on 17 November.

The chat marked the Duchess' first daytime TV appearance since wedding Prince Harry in 2018, and her first interview since her tell-all with Oprah Winfrey

In a short teaser shared on social media, Meghan reminisced about her previous visits to the Warner Bros. studios when she was still auditioning for shows - the same studio where the Ellen Show is taped. 

"I would park at gate three, and then I would scoot on over. And what was so nice is the security guards here would always say, 'Break a leg, we hope you get it!' So to drive in today was very different," she laughed. 

Meghan also recalled the car she used to drive to auditions and how she had to enter the vehicle through the boot. 

"I had this very, very old Ford Explorer Sport, and at a certain point, the key stopped working on the driver's side, so you couldn't get yourself in through the door. So after auditions, I would park at the back of the parking lot, and 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."
