The 61-year-old star exclusively spoke with Access Hollywood at the premiere of The White Lotus season two. Journalist Zuri Hall shared with the actress that the royal couple enjoyed watching the show during their free time and wanted to know her response.

“I really like that,” she said. “I’m very excited because, sometimes, you do a show and you’re like I don’t know who’s watching this. Whatever my future husband or… but I’ll take Harry and Meghan. You know, that’s pretty great news. Yes, Yes, Yes.”

In a new interview with Variety, the Duchess of Sussex revealed the pair love watching the popular HBO series before bedtime. “If we turn on the TV, which is fairly rare, we are like most people with endless, endless, endless searching until you get so tired of searching you end up not watching anything," she told the outlet.

Markle added, “There are some incredible shows on at the moment, and I think, watching great storytelling? There is nothing like it. The White Lotus is an example of that.”

The White Lotus follows various guests and employees at a tropical resort. Earlier this month, HBO released the official teaser for season two, and it featured the return of Tanya McQuid. The long-awaited installment will premiere on (drum roll please) October 30, 2022. 

We love hearing that Markle and Prince Harry are just as obsessed with The White Lotus as we are.
