Ellen DeGeneres – who the Duchess of Sussex has now sat down with for a surprise interview – previously mocked the former actress during a stand-up routine four years ago. Just before Meghan Markle tied the knot with Prince Harry,  the TV host joked that her “family was going to get a little bit bigger” following the engagement news.

Ellen told the audience: “Prince Harry has just announced that he has got engaged. Kate Middleton is my 15th cousin, so that makes Prince Harry’s fiancée my other cousin.”

Ellen then took a playful swipe at Meghan as she revealed that she was once a briefcase model on the game show Deal or No Deal.

“Her name is Meghan Markle, she’s from Los Angeles, she’s an actress, she’s been on General Hospital, she’s been on CSI New York,” she told the crowd.

“And this is true – she was once the holder of case 24 on Deal or No Deal.”

As the audience erupted into laughter, Ellen added: “Which means if Harry had picked the other model he could have gotten $1million. So, darn it.”

Ellen opened the skit by joking that Harry had popped the question on a “royal jumbotron”.

“I don’t know for sure, I think he proposed to her on the royal jumbotron,” she said.

“I’m not sure. I know they have one.”

In the same stand-up routine, Ellen told the audience she had previously met Meghan and had even convinced her to adopt a dog.

“This is absolutely true. We have met before,” she said.

“This is what she (Meghan) said about me in an interview, ’I was in LA and I went to this dog rescue place. Then Ellen and Portia de Rossi walk in. And Ellen goes, ‘Is that your dog’. And I said, ‘No’ and she’s like, ‘You have to take that dog’. So I brought him home because Ellen told me to.’”

“That’s amazing. I mean, she adopted a dog because I told her to.

“I don’t even remember the story actually, but obviously she does and she does whatever I tell her to do, so Meghan if you’re watching, I have something else to tell you – invite me to that wedding.”

The clip has re-emerged ahead of Meghan’s chat with Ellen, which is set to air tomorrow just months after her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The Duchess of Sussex, 40, was a barrel of laughs as she joked candidly about life before joining the Royal Family in a sneak-preview clip of her appearance on The Ellen Show.

In a clip from the episode airing tomorrow, the pair discussed the former Suits star’s early days as an actress.

“You said the last talk show you did was like, I don’t know, another decade ago, but you used to come to this lot to audition all the time,” the comedian, 63, told the Duchess of Sussex.

The former senior royal responded: “Oh my gosh, completely! I would park at gate three and then I would scoot on over, and what was so nice is the security guards would always say, ‘Break a leg, we hope you get it!’” she recalled. “So to drive in today was very different.”

Ellen also asked Meghan about the old car she used to drive to auditions.

“It had a life of its own,” Prince Harry’s wife joked. 

“I had this very, very old Ford Explorer Sport, and at a certain point the key stopped working on the driver’s side, so you couldn’t get yourself in through the door.”
