Ellen DeGeneres is back from her summer hiatus with a royal tale.
The talk show host revealed in clip from her show on Monday that she and wife Portia de Rossi spent a summer afternoon during their vacation in the U.K. with none other than Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
“Here’s a sentence I thought I would never say, but I spent the afternoon with Prince Harry and Meghan,” DeGeneres said to thunderous applause, before quipping, “I just want to say it was an honor for them to meet me.”
“Seriously, they are so amazing. They’re the cutest couple and so down-to-earth,” she told the audience. “And I hate it ― I see them get attacked, and it’s not fair. They’re just two of the most down-to-earth, compassionate people. They’re doing so much good for the world.”
DeGeneres spoke about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s work with elephants in Botswana, and her and de Rossi’s work with gorillas in Rwanda, adding that the famous couples all want to “do something together.”
“I mean I can’t tell you how sweet they are,” DeGeneres added, “but the most important thing is I got to hold little Archie ― the baby. I fed Archie, I held Archie.”
