If you weren't aware yet, Meghan Markle and Ellen DeGeneres are friends. They are such good friends that Ellen recently met the Duchess of Sussex's son Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor. The renowned TV show host met the royal blood over the summer and couldn't stop gushing about it. But how did the Meghan and Ellen cross paths in the first place? Well, it is an interesting story and it involves Markle's dog, Bogart. Fans of the former Suits star would remember Meghan had two dogs before she tied the knot with Prince Harry. 

In an old interview with Best Health, Meghan had spilled the beans on how she first met Meghan and urged her into adopting Bogart. The 38-year-old star previously revealed that Ellen and Meghan met at an adoption centre back in November 2017. Meghan also confessed she did not know her, personally probably. But Ellen convinced her to adopt the pup. 

"Now, I don’t now her, but Ellen goes ‘Is that your dog?’ And I said, ‘No,’ and she’s like, ‘You have to take that dog.’ And I said, ‘Well, I’m deciding.’ And she’s like, ‘Rescue the dog!’” Meghan said. “It’s sort of like if Oprah tells you to do something. I’m sitting there holding him and she’s like ‘Have you thought of a name for him yet?’ And I said, ‘Well, I think I’d name him Bogart,’ and she’s like ‘You’re taking the dog home,’" she recalled in the old interview. 

“And she walks outside to get into her car but instead of getting in she turns around and comes and taps on the window glass and she yells ‘Take the dog!’ And so I brought him home. Because Ellen told me to," she added. Ellen eventually grew close to Meghan. Speaking on the new episode of her upcoming season, "I mean, I can’t tell you how sweet they are, but the most important thing is I got to hold little Archie, the baby. He weighs 15 pounds, which the exchange rate I believe is $17 dollars here.”
