In an interview with the Daily Mail, the former girlfriend of Kate Middleton's younger brother - who is now engaged to Alizee Thevenet - revealed how she had met the Duke of Sussex and then-girlfriend Meghan Markle at Pippa Middleton and James Matthews' wedding in 2017.

The actress, 40, said: "I've met the prince and he's lovely."

She continued: "They seem a very nice couple. Why should they not have the best shot at their relationship, a bit of private time?"

Commenting on Megxit, the presenter -who recently split from property developer boyfriend Ben Carrington - said that by seeking financial independence they can "do what they like"

Donna - who split from the Duchess of Cambridge's sibling in 2018 - explained: "Yes, we love Harry but we don't own him. They're not our prisoners."

She also admitted that she would love their "wonderful" new life in Canada with baby son Archie.

Speaking of Harry, the ex-Dancing On Ice star added: "I think it's quite amazing that he's put his wife and child first.

"Isn't that how we're supposed to be? Shouldn't most men put their wife and children first?"

She suggested: "Don't we all want a husband like Harry? Of course we do."

It comes as it was revealed the first job Meghan, 38, will undertake after withdrawing from the royal family will allegedly be guest appearances on a reality TV show about second weddings.

The mum-of-one will make multiple appearances on 'I Do, Redo,' alongside best friend Jessica Mulroney, 40, who is the star of the upcoming Netflix show, Page Six reports.

Her guest spots will be “sporadic,” says a source close to the production team quoted by the site- who refused to reveal if Meghan would be paid.

But Jessica’s husband Ben tweeted to deny the reports, writing: “Meghan Markle is not appearing now was she ever set to appear on my wife’s show.”
