Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wanted to keep their relationship private.
The Duchess Of Sussex will appear on Thursday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Program.” The 40-year-old recalls what it was like dating her husband before they became public.
The former American actress said that the couple kept their relationship a secret during Halloween celebrations. They were married in 2018.
“[Harry]came to Toronto to see me, my friends and his cousin. [Princess]Eugenie and Jack, now her husband [Brooksbank]In a preview clip, the former “Suits’ star said to the 63-year old that they had also arrived. “The foursome went out in Halloween costumes for one night of fun on the town before it was known that we were a couple.”

“It was post-apocalypse themed so we had all the very bizarre costuming on. We were able to just have a final fun night out,” she said.
Halloween as a married couple and parents of Lilibet and Archie was a very different experience this year.
Markle shared, “We were home and saw you guys, which was great. But we wanted to do some fun things for the children and they were just not interested in it at all.” “Archie was a dinosaur only for five minutes. Not even five minutes.”

Another preview clip was released Wednesday by Markle. It shows Markle driving to Warner Bros. Lot, where “Ellen” is taped in the early days of her acting career.
“I would park at gate three and scoot over … The security guards would always say, ‘Break a leg. I hope you get it.’ I think they probably said it to everybody. … Driving here today was very different,” Markle admitted.
According to the British royal, she used to drive an old Ford Explorer Sport. At one point, the key wouldn’t turn so she couldn’t open the driver’s side door.
“So after auditions, i would park in the back lot and open the trunk, climb inside, pull it closed behind me, crawl over all my seats to get out that’s what I would do,” she laughed.
DeGeneres was curious if anyone noticed her unusual approach.
“I would play it off like, ‘Just looking for my resume and my highlighter for my script. Maybe it’s back there. And then crawl. Markle explained the things we do.
When Markle married Harry, 37 in May 2018, at Windsor Castle, she became the Duchess and Duchess of Sussex. In 2019, Archie Harrison MountbattenWindsor was born to the couple.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s departures from royal duties began in 2020 over what they described as the British media’s intrusions and racist attitudes towards the duchess. The family now lives in Montecito on the California coast. They are neighbors to DeGeneres.

In the wake of quitting royal duties, they gave an explosive TV interview to Oprah Winfrey in March, in which the couple described painful comments about how dark Archie’s skin might be before his birth. The duchess spoke about the severe isolation she felt in the royal family and how it led to her contemplating suicide.
The couple welcomed their second baby, Lilibet “Lili”, Diana MountbattenWindsor, on June 4.
