Long before Meghan Markle was the Duchess of Sussex, she was a briefcase model on “Deal or No Deal”.
And Howie Mandel, the former host of the game show, chatted with Ellen DeGeneres about Markle’s time on the show.
“Do you remember her?” DeGeneres asked Mandel.
“I do, I do remember her and I remember saying, ‘Open the case,’” he recalled before joking, “And I remember saying, ‘She’ll be the future duchess’… Yeah, I remember saying that.”
But what about an invitation to her wedding to Prince Harry?
“I was invited, Meghan called me… Meghan said, ‘Howie… would you like to come?’” The “America’s Got Talent” judge said. “I didn’t feel right. And they called me again, and I said, ‘Nah’… that’s basically the whole story.”
