If you missed the interview (firstly, where have you been?) we've put together the best things we learnt from Meghan's latest TV appearance.
Lilibet has started teething
Meghan revealed during the chat that her youngest, Lilibet, had started teething and that it was causing a lack of sleep for the family.
She told Ellen she was looking for "anything to relieve" her daughter's pain, to which Ellen jokingly suggested tequila.
Meghan and Harry dressed Archie and Lilibet for Halloween
We might not have seen pictures of Archie and Lilibet in their Halloween costumes, but the description Meghan gave us told us that it was probably super cute.
The Sussex family stayed at home on October 31, but that didn't stop Harry and Meghan dressing Lilbet up as a skunk – like Flower from Bambi apparently – for the holiday, while Archie was a dinosaur.
However, Meghan revealed that her son was not too keen on the costume, telling Ellen: "We wanted to do something fun for the kids and then the kids were just not into it at all. Archie was a dinosaur for maybe five minutes...not even five minutes.”
Archie loves to feed their chickens
Meghan shared a new picture of Archie with the world while on the chat-show, which showed young Archie feeding chickens in the garden in their LA home.
In the picture, Archie can be seen wearing jeans, a jumper and the cutest Peppa Pig wellies.
Meghan and Harry went to a Halloween party in disguise
Meghan also spoke a little bit about her relationship with Harry, revealing that before their relationship was announced to the world, they went on one last night out – in disguise.
She explained that they "snuck out in Halloween costumes" in Toronto.
The Duchess said: "It was post-apocalypse theme so we had all this very bizarre costuming on and we were able to have one final fun night out."
Harry and Meghan used to hang out with Eugenie and Jack
Speaking of that Halloween party, guess who was there with them? Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.
While telling the story, Meghan referred to the couple as "their friends" as well as "Harry's cousin and husband".
Prince Harry is loving LA
Reflecting on her move to LA with Harry, Meghan said that her husband "loves" living in California.
She told the talk-show host: "We moved here during lockdown and exactly as things were shut down, so we have had a lot of time to spend at home and creating our home but I think it is just the lifestyle and the weather is pretty great. But we are just happy.”
