Melissa McCarthy Says Meghan Markle’s Face Lit Up When Prince Harry Walked Into the Room

Well, this is so sweet. According to Melissa McCarthy, who would never lie to us, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are just as in love as they seem. McCarthy, who collaborated with the duchess of Sussex on her “40 X 40” birthday video, says that while filming, she noticed a certain undeniable glow from the Suits actor whenever her husband was near.

McCarthy revealed on the British show Lorraine on September 21 that while (remotely) filming the video with Markle, McCarthy “could tell [when Harry] walked in because we were talking and then she went, ‘Oh hi!’ and her whole face lit up, and I was like, ‘Did Prince Harry just walk in the room?’”

She called the couple “so cute” together and said her impression of the pair’s interaction was that it was “so sweet and genuine.” Melissa should know! She and her husband, Ben Falcone, have been married for over 15 years and often collaborate on feature films, not just viral videos. Not that it’s a competition or anything.

In the video, released August 4 on the occasion of Markle’s 40th birthday, her royal spouse is seen but not heard, making a cameo appearance juggling outside Meg’s office window. McCarthy added that this funny moment was Prince Harry’s idea, sharing that she was immediately on board. “I was like, ‘Are you weird and funny to boot?’” she said. “At that point, I was like, ‘That’s great!’…. I love anyone that will do something weird just for weird’s sake, so I was like, ‘I tip my hat!’” Prince Harry and Melissa McCarthy: two comedic legends finally joining forces.

“I just find them very inspiring,” McCarthy has previously said of Markle and Prince Harry. “They’re carving out their own lives. They’re carving out their lives for their kids.” Calling the Sussexes “so sweet and funny,” McCarthy added, “The Suits reunion really made me laugh…. That was not my idea. I wish I could claim that bit, but it was hers.” So, three comedic geniuses.
