Wearing a white long-sleeved top and black trousers with her glossy hair in long waves, a preview clip saw the Duchess confess to an unusual method of getting in and out of her old car.

"Your car was a very special car," Ellen said.

"At a certain point the key stopped working on the driver's side... so I would crawl in the trunk and climb over my seats to get out... it was not ideal," Meghan confessed.
