Deborah had posted footage from their conversation - in which Al popped by to say hi - on Instagram.

In the background of the footage, features from their gorgeous family home were visible, including a large living room with colourful sofas pilled high with cushions, which led out onto a large dining room and kitchen area. 

During the conversation, they chatted about everything from the student's life in Paris, to the Oprah interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which aired later that evening on CBS.
