Did Meghan Markle Set a 'Fan Girl' Meeting With Hilary Clinton?

Close

Even though Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are set to have a six-week sabbatical from royal duties, that does not mean all is quiet behind the scenes.

In fact, royal baby Archie Harrison -- the son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex -- got to meet one major political figure this week.

According to the Daily Mail, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited the Sussexes at their Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor on Tuesday and that Markle invited her.

Their sources said that while Meghan Markle and Hillary Clinton met, they hugged and had a "fan girl" meeting.

Clinton was able to have a cuddle with Archie and even told Markle about her daughter, Chelsea Clinton's new baby son, Jasper.

According to a royal source, both women have a lot of admiration for each other and that their meeting was a lovely, warm meeting.

"They are mutual fangirls," the source described.

It is also likely that they discussed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's recent TV documentary wherein the two opened up about the difficulties and struggles of joining the royal family.

The said meeting came days after Clinton praised Markle and called out the tabloids' racist mistreatment of her during a BBC Radio Interview. The former first lady also said that the media's unfair treatment and criticisms to Meghan was "heartbreaking and wrong."

Clinton also agreed that there had been a racist element on the tabloids' smeary stories about Markle.

"I think even if you go back and look at social media from the time the engagement was announced, the race was an element in it," the 72-year-old politician said.

Clinton then praised Markle, whom she called an amazing young woman who has an incredible life story.

"She has stood up for herself and has made her way in the world. And then she falls in love, and he falls in love with her," Clinton continued, "Everybody should be celebrating that because it is a true love story."

Clinton also revealed that she wanted to hug Meghan Markle and tell her to "hang in there."

Meghan wrote to Clinton when his husband, Bill Clinton, was the U.S. president when she was only 11 years old. She requested the President to help get a "sexist" advertisement for dishwasher soap taken off the screens.
