Meghan Markle described her first meeting with Kate Middleton as ‘wonderful’.
Despite the Megxit fallout, the first meeting when Harry introduced Meghan to Prince William and Kate Middleton went positively.
During the couple’s engagement interview with BBC’s Mishal Hussian, Meghan described the meeting as very positive using a single word to describe the moment, “wonderful”, reports the Daily Star.

Recalling the meeting between Megan and Kate, Prince Harry said: “It was exciting I mean I’ve — you know I’d been seeing her for a period of time when I literally didn’t tell anybody at all.
“And then William was longing to meet her and so was Catherine, so you know, being our neighbours, we managed to get that in a couple of — well quite a few times now and Catherine has been absolutely…”
Meghan interrupted: “Wonderful.”
She also praised Prince Harry’s family for being so welcoming and meeting his grandmother, the Queen.
Meghan said: “I think, you know, to be able to meet her through his lens, not just with his honour and respect for her as the monarch, but the love that he has for her as his grandmother, all of those layers have been so important for me so that when I met her I had such a deep understanding and of course incredible respect for being able to have that time with her.
“And we’ve had a really — she’s — she’s an incredible woman.”
