Royal experts have “detected” a “softening” in statements made by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in recent weeks. They claim it could hint at plans to “heal the rift” with The Firm. The couple announced their plan to step away from their roles as senior royals in January. They have since moved to the US and a Netflix TV series, reportedly worth £112million, has been brokered. Meghan, who grew-up in Los Angeles in the world of show business, is no stranger to TV after appearing on law drama Suits. She also revealed that she was put in an awkward position on sets when she was a schoolgirl. 

Before she broke into the acting world, Meghan studied theatre and international relations at Northwestern University in Illinois and then served the US embassy in Argentina.

She landed the role of Rachel Zane in Suits, after appearances on Deal or No Deal and as an extra named “Hot Girl” in the 2005 film A Lot Like Love, which starred Ashton Kutcher.

Meghan filmed the legal show in Toronto, Canada, but claimed to be a Californian through-and-through during a 2013 interview on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

The future royal quipped that she was “one of the five” people who actually grew-up in Los Angeles and told the host: “You can pinch me, I’m real.”

Mr Ferguson clutched at her arm and tried to repeat the act a number of times, which led Meghan to pull away and state: “No!”

The interviewer described her having a “strangely hairless body” and “absolutely hair-free” in an unusual exchange, later commented on by viewers.

One YouTube comment described it as “CRINGE”, while others branded it “painfully awkward” and “uncomfortable to watch”.

Another wrote: “See the true Meghan. Desperately wannabe [sic] famous, superficial, leaning on her cuteness, insecure. He’s making a joke out of her and she didn’t even clock it!”

During their chat, Meghan revealed that her father was a “DP” – a director of photography – which Mr Ferguson mocked for being such an “industry” term.

She revealed that Thomas Markle Sr had worked on the sitcom Married… with Children and was on-set “everyday after school for 10 years”.

Meghan added: “It’s a very perverse place for a little girl, who went to Catholic school no less, to grow-up because I’m there in my school uniform, right?”

Mr Ferguson interjected “Oh yeah”, before Meghan covered her face with her hands and broke out into hysterical laughter.

She continued: “The guest stars would be like Traci Lords, Tia Carrere, you know, these are… those are some women!”

Ms Lords was a former pornographic actress and the show was known for its use of derogatory jokes about women.  

She told AOL’s Build series in 2016 that it was a “really odd place for a little girl to grow up” and that she was there for a lot of the show’s recordings.

Married… with Children, which was on air for 10 years until 1997, was known for controversial gags about sex and using overweight actresses as the butt of jokes.

Meghan was particularly unimpressed by that experience because of her inappropriate attire, she recalled: “I went to an all-girl cathlic school so I’d be in a little schoolgirl uniform.

“But then you would watch Traci Lords or Tia Carrere in a school uniform. My dad said, ‘No Meg, that’s not the same thing… Different kind of vibe… Don’t get any ideas.’”

On The Late Late Show, Mr Ferguson asked if anyone took “interest” in her because she was walking around in a “little school girl outfit” or confused her for someone “working on the show”.

Meghan replied: “Err, thankfully no! I mean, I had curly hair and a gap in my teeth.”
