Meghan Markle Is Set to Give Her First Interview to Ellen DeGeneres

Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry are all that anyone can talk about these days. Granted, it has been a whirlwind few weeks for the couple. First, they wanted to step down from their roles as senior royals and then they were forced to drop their HRH titles completely and now the two have retreated to Canada.

Since all of this began, people have been speculating about what caused the royals to step away from everything that Prince Harry had ever known. But now, we might get to hear about it all directly from Meghan.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announce they are stepping down

After months of getting bashed by the media, Meghan and Harry announced that they no longer wanted to be full-time working royals.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution,” the couple wrote on Instagram. “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages.”

Unfortunately, that was not the way that things worked out after Prince Harry met with the Queen.

Harry and Meghan will no longer be working royals

Prince Harry was required to meet with the Queen, Prince Charles, and Prince William to discuss his role in the family. Unfortunately, they came to the conclusion that Harry could not have his cake and eat it too.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are grateful to Her Majesty and the Royal Family for their ongoing support as they embark on the next chapter of their lives,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

“As agreed in this new arrangement, they understand that they are required to step back from Royal duties, including official military appointments. They will no longer receive public funds for Royal duties.” 

“With The Queen’s blessing, the Sussexes will continue to maintain their private patronages and associations. While they can no longer formally represent The Queen, the Sussexes have made clear that everything they do will continue to uphold the values of Her Majesty.”

Within this new arrangement, the Sussexes will have to drop their HRH titles and will repay the Sovereign Grant for the money spent renovating their home at Frogmore Cottage.

Will Meghan Markle be on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’?

Everyone has been wondering what Meghan’s side of this whole story is. And according to reports from The Daily Mail, we might just get to hear it sooner rather than later, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“Ellen and Meghan have already discussed a sit-down interview,” a source from Ellen told the outlet. “That’s been in the works for quite some time now.”

DeGeneres and Meghan have been friendly for years, which is probably why the Duchess felt comfortable scheduling this interview with her.

“Ellen has a way of making things happen,” another source said. “Plus Ellen has made it clear to her staffers that Meghan is one of the nicest, most real people she’s ever met and that Harry is just the same.”

‘She would want a sit-down with the both of them together. She wants her fans to see what she already knows to be true.”
