Meghan Markle said she shared “quiet whispers of girl talk on the terrace” with Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and got “giddy like absolute schoolgirls.”
Meghan also interviewed the former TV host for the show, titled: “Good Wife/Bad Wife, Good Mom/Bad Mom.”
Meghan said: “This wasn’t our day of being the wives and moms, all perfectly quaffed with updos and pearls and demure smiles.
