The bride of the future king of England!
Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle gave a surprise interview Monday on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to mark the British royal’s 36th birthday.
But don’t expect a fresh take on the couple’s nuptials back in May, which American royal watchers eagerly awaited, or even any question about Prince Harry’s new girlfriend — British actress Suits’ actress Meghan Markle.

Both Ellen DeGeneres and Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, asked the former actress about her relationship with Harry, who is sixth in line to the British throne.
“Are you guys exclusive?” Ellen asked Thomas Markle. “Are you gonna have to sit in the back of the carriage like a commoner?”
“No, I’m not,” Meghan Markle said. “I’m a member of the royal family. I’m proud to be. It’s a wonderful, wonderful place.”
She also dismissed the uproar surrounding the enormous cost of the couple’s wedding.
“The publicity is just enormous,” Meghan Markle said, adding that she has realized how lucky she is.
Harry told his bride during the wedding that “We’re very much in love and you make me so happy,” but only “like with love,” Meghan Markle told Ellen. “I’m very, very lucky.”
