Meghan Markle On The Ellen Show – Talks Thanksgiving As A Young Adult And Now

This Thanksgiving is all about homely vibes for the Sussexes!

Last Thursday, Meghan Markle made an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ The Ellen Show where she spoke about many things, including the new family of four’s plans for Thanksgiving this year.

Though this isn’t their first Thanksgiving in the US, it might as well be. The couple and their now two-year-old son Archie moved to their Montecito home in August 2020 so technically their first Thanksgiving was last year but, the pandemic made for a very gloomy holiday season. Plus, Harry and Meghan welcomed a daughter last June, so this year’s celebrations definitely must be better.

Meghan’s Infamous Turkey

During the interview, Meghan revealed her plans for dinner, mentioning her love for cooking. The family plans on having a quiet day settled indoors with some good food. We do know that Meghan is indeed a good cook. In 2016, on her now-deleted Instagram account, the Duchess of Sussex posted a throwback photo claiming that she once “cooked the perfect Thanksgiving turkey”.

Judging from the hashtags on the post, and a caption stating “let the brining begin”, it appears she used a simple yet time-consuming technique of brining in which you soak the bird before cooking to get it all flavorful and juicy.

Young Meghan’s Thanksgiving

For this young activist, Thanksgiving was never just about gathering loved ones and feasting the night away. Rather, it was always about doing whatever good you can, thanks to her incredible set of parents. During the interview, she revealed that though her upbringing was quite privileged, both her parents came from little so they were always mindful of giving back as much as they could. Markle’s parents always performed acts of grace like donating whatever they could, delivering meals to patients in hospice care, and even buying turkeys for homeless shelters for Thanksgiving. They didn’t forget the occasional quiet acts either like a pat on the back or a hug.

Meghan says that since she grew up with such good role models, she was socially conscious even as a young adult to do whatever she could to make any given situation better. At the very least, she says, she can raise her voice against any wrongs she witnesses.

The small family of four seems to be very happy ever since they stepped down from their duties as senior members of the royal family and moved to their new home in Montecito, California.
