Meghan Markle will appear on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, marking her first appearance on a talk show since marrying British Prince Harry.
The Duchess of Sussex sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for an episode that will run on Thursday in the United States, according to the daytime show’s producers.
It was Meghan’s first major television appearance since she and Harry revealed their dissatisfaction with life in the royal family in a surprise interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.
When she married Harry in 2018, the former “Suits” actress shared an anecdote about her many auditions when she was just starting out as an actor in Los Angeles, according to a clip of her surprise appearance.
“I had this 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,” she told DeGeneres.
“So after auditions, I would park at the back of the parking lot and I would open the trunk and climb in, pull the door shut behind me and crawl all over my seats to get out. That’s how I would come to and fro.”
Meghan and Harry have mostly limited their public appearances since resigning their royal duties and moving to California in 2020 to humanitarian events or conferences that promote the work of their Archewell foundation on causes ranging from media distortion to women, hunger, and mental health.
They’ve also signed lucrative deals to make their own TV shows and podcasts with Netflix and Spotify.
