Meghan Markle gave a candid interview to Ellen DeGeneres as she talked about the battered and broken old car she drove before she married Prince Harry.

The star, 40, made a surprise appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Talk Show, dressed in a white blouse and black trousers, with her long brunette hair worn loose around her shoulders.

In a preview clip of the episode, which is released in full tomorrow, Ellen welcomes Meghan to the studio and reminded her that she used to attend auditions at the studio lot where they were filming.

The Duchess of Sussex laughed at the memory: "Oh my gosh, completely."

She explained: "I would park at gate three and then I would scoot on over and what was so nice is the security guards here would always say, 'Break a leg! We hope you get it!' So the drive in today was very different."

DeGeneres asked Meghan if she was seen at the lot so much that the security guards recognised her, Meghan replied bashfully: "I think they probably said it to everybody. That's how nice they were."

She recalled how different life was back then, and told Ellen about how she used to drive an old Ford Explorer Sport with "a life of its own."

Ellen described it as "a very special car".

Meghan explained the problem: "At a certain point the key stopped working on the driver's side so you couldn't get yourself in through the door".

"So after auditions I was parked at the back of the parking lot, and I would open the trunk and climb in and pull it shut behind me," she laughed.

"I'd crawl over all my seats to get out, that's how I would come to and fro" she revealed as the audience clapped.

A shocked Ellen replied: "Oh my god! Did anyone ever see you? I know you parked far away but did anyone ever see you climb through a trunk?"

"No I would play it off!" exclaimed Meghan. "I would go like 'Oh, I'm just looking for my resume and my highlighters for my script. Oh, maybe it's back there' and then crawl in and close it" she explained, miming the action.

"The things we do!" she said, to a stunned Ellen.
