Melissa McCarthy has spoken about what it was like to work with Meghan Markle on her 40th birthday celebration video.

The actress teamed up with the Duchess of Sussex in August to record a comedy skit for Meghan’s birthday that featured Prince Harry juggling in the background.

Speaking on Lorraine with Ross King, Ross asked Melissa about Harry's juggling moment, saying: "That moment in that video, it seems so surreal. Was it like that for you?"

Melissa responded: "You know what was so cute, I could tell that he had walked in because we were talking and then she went, 'oh hi', and her whole face lit up and I was like, 'did Prince Harry just walk in the room?' and it was just so sweet and genuine.

"And then he ducked his head in and he's like, 'is it weird if I juggle?' I'm like, 'it sure is' and then I was like, 'what about standing outside that window?' and he goes, 'that's what I was thinking, maybe I'm just standing out there for no reason juggling?'

"And I was like, 'are you weird and funny to boot?' I love anyone that will do something weird just for weird's sake so I was like, 'I tip my hat!'"

The birthday vide featured Meghan jumping on a zoom call with Melissa to ask for advice on an birthday idea she has.

Melissa and Meghan go back and forth as Melissa tries to guess the concept, including the idea of getting matching tattoos, with Meghan jokingly responding: “already have something similar across my back”.

In the video, Prince Harry can be seen doing his juggling act out window, before Meghan reveals that she’s asking 40 friends to donate 40 minutes of their time to help with mentoring women re-entering the workplace as part of a 40×40 project.

Melissa agrees and says “see ya at 50”, before Meghan blows out the candles on her birthday cake.

While reports of the “royal feud” circulated at the time, members of the royal family sent Meghan birthday wishes as she turned 40.

Prince William and Kate Middleton shared snaps of Meghan on a royal trip as they said: "Wishing a happy 40th birthday to The Duchess of Sussex!"

It’s believed that Meghan had a private birthday celebration for her close friends and family, with a source telling the Mirror: "Meghan wants a small gathering. About 65 people are invited, her closest friends and family.”
