Markle said, “I’ve reflected on that first official engagement that I had with her, how special that felt. I feel fortunate.” She added that she continues “to be proud to have had a nice warmth with the matriarch of the family”.
The Duchess of Sussex also spoke about the support the royal family received after Queen Elizabeth passed. She added that there was an “outpouring of love and support”.
Markle also spoke about Queen Elizabeth II’s legacy and said that when it came to female leadership, the late Queen was the “most shining example” of what it looks like.
She said she felt “deep gratitude” to have been able to spend time with Queen Elizabeth II and get to know her.
The interview comes after Royal experts suggested that she and the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, may lose their Royal title over their docuseries on Netflix.
Markle made her first statement about the late Queen Elizabeth II in an interview with Variety. Prince Harry paid tribute to his grandmother and released an emotional statement on the Archewell website he shared with Markle.
Markle and Prince Harry had joined Prince William and Kate Middleton as they greeted mourners outside Windsor Castle. The four went on a walk around the castle to pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth and greeted crowds of supporters.
Dress in all black, the four talked to members of the crowd and read the tributes left outside the gates. Markle was also seen consoling her husband during the walkabout.
