Ellen DeGeneres Reveals That Meghan Markle Suggested She Book Dance Duo On Her Show

Ellen DeGeneres invited a 9-year-old dancer from Brussels and her dance teacher to perform a routine on her daytime talk show, and later revealed the royal reason the pair came to be booked on her show.

DeGeneres welcomed dance instructor Jeny Bonsenge and her pupil, Anae, to her show, after videos of the pair dancing together went viral on social media.

After viewing their videos, DeGeneres, 61, quickly became one of the pair’s millions of fans, and delighted the two when she revealed how they first came to her attention.

“Do you know how I found the two of you?” DeGeneres told the pair. “Meghan Markle sent me this video, she texted me and said, ‘What do you think of this? How great is this girl?'”
