Meghan Markle is set to make her debut on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” tomorrow.

To everyone’s surprise, a preview of her talk with DeGeneres was posted to the host’s Instagram page on Wednesday. In it, the Duchess of Sussex discusses her days of auditioning on the same Warner Bros. lot when she was an actress.

“What was so nice was the security guards here would always say ‘break a leg! we hope you get it!’…so the drive in today was very different” she told Ellen.

For the appearance, Markle dressed in a white silk-blend Oscar de la Renta blouse featuring billowy balloon sleeves and floral embroidered cutout detailing. She paired the sold-out top, which buttons up the back, with sleek black, belted pants and a pair of Giorgio Armani Velvety leather court shoes in black. The timeless style, which retails for $675, boasts a sleek narrow toe and the brand’s hallmark asymmetrical topline.

This marks her first daytime talk show appearance since she married Prince Harry. Markle and Harry Prince Harry made waves last March when Oprah Winfrey interviewed them. The couple, who share two children together, spoke candidly about their decision to step back from the royal family and relocate to California.
