Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are ‘so cute’ and ‘genuine’ says pal Melissa McCarthy

ACTRESS Melissa McCarthy has said that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s dynamic is “so cute" and "genuine."

The Bridesmaids star, 51, said that Meghan’s “whole face lit up” when her husband came in when they were filming the duchess’ 40×40 initiative announcement video.

Melissa said on TV show Lorraine that she could “tell he walked in because we were talking and then she went, 'Oh hi!' and her whole face lit up, and I was like, ‘Did Prince Harry just walk in the room?’”

She added that she "just thought it was so sweet and genuine."

During Meghan’s birthday video, Prince Harry made a surprise cameo juggling in the background. 

Melissa said the comical moment was the Duke of Sussex’s idea – although he feared it would come across as ‘weird’ – and it instantly connected her to him. 

She explained: "I was like, 'Are you weird and funny to boot?' At that point, I was like, 'That's great!'
