"Three days before our wedding we got married," Meghan said.

"But we want our union to be between us."

Meghan kicked off her chat with Oprah Winfrey revealing she went into life as a royal 'naively'.

“I will say I went into it naively because I didn’t grow up knowing much about the royal family it wasn’t something that was part of the conversation at home," she told the host. "It wasn’t something that we followed.”

She also revealed she met the Queen in an off the cut moment that was 'lovely and easy'.
