Meghan Markle reveals on Ellen Show the sweet milestone that her daughter Lilibet has met as she also mentions her daughter's sweet nickname.


In some clips released ahead of the Ellen Show with guest star Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex spoke about her 5-month-old daughter Lilibet.

In the show Meghan revealed that she and Harry call their daughter 'Lil' and 'Lili.' These adorable nicknames were also used by the talk show host as she revealed that the toddler has already started teething.

In the interview, Ellen revealed to the audience, "Lili's now teething." The clip then cut to Meghan with her hands up by her mouth saying, "Anything to relieve that."

Ellen then joked, "Tequila, anything," To which Meghan smiled and replied, "That's Auntie Ellen for you."

"That's why I don't have kids," joked Ellen as a witty reply to the Duchess.

Lilibet, the only daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan, was named in tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke of Sussex's grandmother whose pet name as a child was Lilibet.

Since Prince Philip died in April 2021, Lilibet is a name no longer used by the Queen who is typically called mummy or grandmother by her four children and eight grandchildren. Happily, the pet name will live on in one of the youngest of the Queen's 12 great-grandchildren.

In another clip released by The Ellen Show, Meghan Markle opened up about her time as a struggling actress before she found fame. 

The royal revealed that she used to visit the same lot where the Ellen show is filmed in order to attend auditions. 

The Duchess revealed, "The security guards would always say, 'Break a leg! We hope you get it!' So the drive in today was very different." 

The Duchess of Sussex also revealed her down-to-earth issues as she spoke fondly about her old Ford Explorer Sport that had a faulty driver's side door. Because of this fault, Meghan would have to climb out of her trunk to get out of her car.

"I would park in the back of the parking lot and open the trunk, then climb in and pull it shut behind me and crawl over all my seats to get out," she explained with a giggle. "That's how I would come to and fro."

This episode of The Ellen Show featuring Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, is set to be released on Thursday, November 20, 2021, on CBS in America, broadcasting at 3 pm Eastern Time (ET).

In the UK, the episode will be a week behind and be released on Thursday, November 24 at 2 pm on ITV2.
