Rebel Wilson said this week she first met Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on a recent trip to Santa Barbara, California, and remarked that he “couldn’t have been nicer.”
However, Meghan isn’t so friendly, the comedian told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.
“Meghan wasn’t that cool,” she revealed as guest colleague John Oliver sat next to her and burst into tears. “She wasn’t that naturally warm.”
The Pitch Perfect actress reflected that the duchess’ coldness might be because “my mom, who’s Australian, used to ask her all these slightly rude questions like, ‘Where are your kids?’ And things like that. I say, ‘Mom, don’t ask her that.’

In June, Buckingham Palace announced it was investigating how staff had dealt with allegations of bullying against the former American actress. However, these results remain private.
In her podcast last year, Meghan emphasized that “special” is not the same as “difficult”.
“Because I often find myself walking into a room, I’m special,” she explained. “A, I guess a tide lifts all ships, right? We will all be successful. So let’s make sure it’s really great because it’s a shared success for everyone. But I also know I’ll crouch and tiptoe in a room I don’t know if you’re doing what I find most embarrassing when you say a sentence but the intonation rises as if it were a question .
