In a brief preview clip from the interview, Meghan said she was looking for "anything to relieve" Lilibet's teething pain, to which Ellen joked: "Tequila, anything."

Meghan then replied: "That’s Auntie Ellen for you", to which Ellen said: "That’s why I don’t have kids."

And speaking about life at her new home with husband Prince Harry, Archie, and Lilibet, Meghan said that they were "just happy" with life.

A preview of the interview also shows Meghan speak about her old Hollywood auditions.

She said: "So I had this very old Ford Explore Sport and at a certain point the key stopped working on the driver's side, so you couldn't get yourself in through the door so after auditions I would park at the back of the parking lot and I would open the trunk and climb in, pull the door shut behind me and crawl all over my seats to get out. That's how I would come to and fro."
