We are happy after moving to California: Meghan tells Ellen DeGeneres

Megan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex made an appearance on popular US chat show hosted by Ellen DeGeneres.

In the interview, Meghan talked about moving to the West Coast of the US as the pandemic began, Meghan said: “We’ve just been able to spend a lot of time at home.”

“We’re just happy,” she added.

The duchess also took part in a prank on street vendors, which saw her carry out a series of instructions relayed to her by Ellen through an earpiece.

Ellen instructed Meghan to hold a healing crystal to her forehead, eat food like an animal, drink from a baby’s milk bottle and tell jokes without a punch line at a studio complex in Los Angeles.

The “hidden camera” skit is a regular feature on Ellen’s chat show, and has previously involved celebrities including Adele, Emma Watson and Jennifer Lopez.

During her appearance, Meghan said her five-month-old daughter Lilibet had started teething, while son Archie, two, had taken to feeding chickens at their Montecito home.

She reflected on the joy of being a parent alongside her husband, as she promoted a children’s book she has written that features illustrations based on Harry and Archie.

“Harry being a dad was the most beautiful thing to watch,” she said.

She told Ellen, who lives close to the Sussexes, Archie “loves being a big brother” to Lilibet.

“Someone told [Harry] and I that when you have one kid it’s a hobby, and two children is parenting,” the duchess, 40, said.

“Suddenly we realised, ‘Oh right,’ everyone talks about what it’s like for the second child but no-one talks about the adjustment for the first child when the second one comes along.

“I think they have that moment of, ‘Oh, this is fun, oh, this is how it is now.'”

Meghan’s last television interview was with the US broadcaster Oprah Winfrey in March, when she said it was “liberating” to be able to speak freely, away from the institution of the Royal Family.

The Sussexes announced they would “step back” as senior royals in January 2020.
