In a preview clip released on Wednesday, Meghan revealed details about her life as an actress before she met her husband, Prince Harry. She described the battered old car she used to drive to auditions in at Warner Brothers studio – the same place the Ellen Show is filmed. She recalled: “I would park on gate three and I would scoot on over and the security guards here would always say ‘break a leg, I hope you get it’.

“So driving today was very different.”

Reacting to this snippet ahead of the full interview, royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk: “The trailer for the chat show, unlike those for the Sussexes controversial and deeply destructive interview on Oprah, which aired when Prince Philip was in hospital, has Meghan reminiscing about her days in show business.”

He exclaimed: “There is no harm in that!”

He added: “Her detractors will criticise the obsession for publicity and control of their image which seems to characterise the Sussexes.”

This comes after royal expert – and Meghan critic – Angela Levin claimed the new sitdown showed the Duchess of Sussex was “desperate for publicity.”

Dissecting the preview clip, Ms Levin told the Sun: “Meghan was acting that everything was wonderful and so funny and isn’t she sweet and a bit shy.

“And it’s not going to work really.”

She claimed Meghan is “trying to be a really natural ordinary girl.

“She’s desperate for publicity, desperate for people to watch and see her.”

Mr Fitzwilliams elaborated on the type of publicity which the Duchess of Sussex may court in this prominent television interview.

He said: “If her appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’s chat show is limited to reminiscence about the days when she was an actress and issues on which the Sussexes campaign such as diversity, gender equality, mental health and the environment, fair enough.

“If it involves attacks on the Royal Family, it will be another matter altogether, especially at the moment.”

He concluded by questioning whether it would shed light on the Sussexes’ plans for the future.

The royal commentator added: “Will it, I wonder, give us an insight into what the Sussexes, who are so unpredictable, really want?”

The upcoming interview filmed for Thursday’s episode of the Ellen Show comes amid increasingly frequent reports of the Queen’s health.

Her Majesty, 95, held her first audience for weeks at Windsor Castle on Wednesday, welcoming the chief of defence staff, General Sir Nick Carter, to her Berkshire home.

Her Majesty did not attend the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph after injuring her back just before the event.

A statement from Buckingham Palace said that the Queen was “disappointed” to miss the service, but, “having sprained her back, [she] has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today’s Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph.”

Prior to this eleventh-hour cancellation, the longest-reigning monarch in history missed a slew of royal engagements, including scheduled trips to Glasgow for COP26 and to Northern Ireland to mark the centenary of its creation.
