Ellen DeGeneres is back from her summer vacation in the UK, and she surely has a royal story to tell everyone.
The 61 years old talk show host revealed in a segment of her show on Monday that she and wife Portia de Rossi spent a summer afternoon during their vacation in the UK with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry (Duchess and Duke of Sussex) at Frogmore Cottage last month.
She revealed that they talked about their shared philanthropic endeavors. She also told that she got the opportunity to feed and hold the royal couple’s newborn Archie- who would have been three months old at that time.
“Here’s a sentence I thought I’d never say, but I spent the afternoon with Prince Harry and Meghan,” she revealed during The Ellen Show. “I can’t tell you how sweet they are, but the most important thing is I got to hold Archie, little Archie. I fed Archie. I held Archie.”

ELLEN SAYS ARCHIE ‘LOOKS JUST LIKE HARRY’
Ellen revealed some more details about Prince Archie on her show. She explained that the father-son duo shares similar facial features. “He actually has a perfectly circular head, he looks just like Harry, and he had more hair than I did at that time.”
She even complimented that the royal couple is the cutest couple and so down to Earth. Ellen even joked that ” Archie weighs pounds, which I believe the exchange rate is 17 dollars here.” Although she didn’t take any picture to commemorate the occasion, DeGeneres drew a sketch of the royal baby while joking that he looks like Henry.
She even defended the couple. “I hate it. I see them get attacked, and it’s not fair. They are just two of the most down to Earth compassionate people. They’re doing so much good for the World.”
Ellen confirmed the reason for meeting the Royal couple via Twitter
Portia and I met Prince Harry and Meghan in England to talk about their work on wildlife conservation. They were the most down-to-earth, compassionate people. Imagine being attacked for everything you do, when all you’re trying to do is make the world better. pic.twitter.com/226pRO1fj1
