The sweet thing Meghan Markle does when Prince Harry walks into a room

·3 min read

Remember Meghan Markle's fortieth birthday video, starring Melissa McCarthy (and a cameo from Prince Harry attempting to juggle)? Of course you do! And now Melissa just spoke out on what filming it with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was really like – and shared a sweet insight into their relationship, saying that Meghan does the *most* adorable thing whenever Harry enters a room.

Whilst chatting on Lorraine recently about her latest movie, The Starling, alongside her co-star Chris O'Dowd, Melissa was asked if Chris O'Dowd is "funnier than Prince Harry juggling". To this, she replied, "I mean, they're different, glorious traits, you know. It's apples and, you know, orangutans. They're both my favourites."

She then added, "You know what was so cute [though is] when I could tell when he [Prince Harry] walked in, because we were talking and she [Meghan Markle] went, 'Oh hiii!' and her whole face lit up...

"I was like, 'Did Prince Harry just walk in the room and like her whole face...?' I just thought it was like so sweet and genuine, and then he ducked his head in and he was like, 'Is it weird if I juggle?' I was like, 'It sure is!'"

Oh to be a fly on the wall of that set...

Elsewhere in Meghan and Harry news, the couple recently made their magazine cover debut as a couple and appeared on the front of TIME, as part of the publications list of the 100 most influential people of the last year.

Explaining why the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were chosen for the honour, the magazine stated it was impressed by their charitable efforts and said, "In a world where everyone has an opinion about people they don’t know, the Duke and Duchess have compassion for the people they don’t know. They don’t just opine. They run toward the struggle."

Naturally, fans of the couple then dug deep into the photoshoot and speculated on the potential subtle symbolism about their new life, away from 'The Firm' and royal duties, hinted within the photos taken by Pari Dukovic.

For starters, the shoot of the couple features a lot of trees in the background, which many suggested could be somewhat symbolic for M&H, maybe even representing their newfound 'freedom' and peace of mind away from royal life.

Case in point: let's take it back to the 40th birthday video again, in which Melissa asks Meghan whether she'll be celebrating with "another photoshoot under a tree where you're looking very peaceful?". To which the Duchess says, "Peaceful under a tree is me every day."

Others commented on the couple's positioning on the front cover of TIME, with Meghan standing noticeably in front of Harry. Plenty have remarked on whether or not this could be a subtle nod to the fact the couple champion feminism and routinely support causes that specifically benefit girls and women around the world.

Fingers crossed we'll be seeing the Sussexes on this side of the pond soon!
