Ellen DeGeneres to interview Duchess Meghan?

Ellen DeGeneres to interview Duchess Meghan?

Ellen DeGeneres has said she’s “excited” to interview Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, seemingly confirming the first interview with the royal after her and Prince Harry’s exit from the royal family.

Since stepping down, there has been speculation about a potential “tell-all” interview, with experts weighing in on who the couple may speak to.

Some are guessing that the couple would choose Meghan’s friend, Gayle King, to discuss their exit, others believe that Oprah Winfrey may be the one to interview the pair.

There was also whispers circulating that Harry and Meghan would sit down with DeGeneres for their first major interview since leaving “the firm”. And now, the talk show host may have confirmed the rumours.

Asked on camera on Friday if she was keen to do a tell-all interview with Meghan, the 62-year-old responded: “Sure, I’m excited”.

She was out and about in a Los Angeles neighbourhood at the time and was on a lengthy phone call, so it’s unclear how serious her response was.

But behind the scenes, plans are reportedly already in place to set up the tell-all royal interview.

“Ellen and Meghan have already discussed a sit-down interview. That has been in the works for quite some time now,” a source at the Ellen Show told the Daily Mail.

Meghan and DeGeneres have met in the past at a dog shelter in LA a few years ago. The host has also defended the couple in the past, so it’s possible the Duchess would feel safe as she recounts her side of the story to someone she considers a friend.

“I see them getting attacked and it’s not fair,” said DeGeneres a little after Archie’s birth.

“They are two of the most down-to-earth, compassionate people, they’re doing so much good for the world.”

The Sussexes have been extremely quiet since their departure from the royal family, as fans wonder when and if they plan to speak publicly about their decision.
