Meghan Markle And Hillary Clinton Had A Secret Meeting: Source

In today's unexpected headlines: Meghan and Hillary became best friends, and it's actually kinda cute.

After weeks of defending Meghan to the press, Hillary finally got a chance to hug the young royal. And according to a source, it was wholesome af.

Hillary is now tour with her new book.


Hence all the press lately. She and Chelsea co-wrote The Book of Gutsy Women, a book that highlights women that mother and daughter find inspiring and motivating.

Among those chosen are Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Mary Ritter Beard, Harriet Tubman, Edith Windsor, and Malala Yousafzai.

And now, clearly, Meghan Markle.

The two have been fans of each other for a while now.

For Meghan, it's been a long while.

When she was 11, she wrote a letter to the then First Lady regarding a dishwasher soap commercial she thought was sexist. She wanted Hillary's help getting it off the air.

Then, a few weeks ago, Hillary low-key popped off about Meghan's treatment by the British media.

"I'm a huge Meghan Markle fan," she said, sitting next to her daughter, Chelsea. "I do want to say that the way she’s been treated is inexplicable. If the explanation is that she’s biracial, then shame on everybody."

Chelsea agreed.

"I don’t know her, but as someone who respects her, I’m so grateful that she persists and is unbowed and is doing work she feels called to do, and isn’t willing to be bullied," Chelsea said.

Hillary continued to stan Meghan this week, too.

While appearing on BBC Radio 5, she talked at length about how much she understands and admires Meghan.

Firstly, she "absolutely" believes Meghan's race (she is biracial) has everything to do with how she's been treated.

Secondly, she thinks it's unfair that people say Meghan "deserves" the way she's being treated.

Because she married a royal, and I guess that means people are allowed to be mean? Hillary didn't like that at all.

"People don’t choose who they fall in love with, they fall in love! And she is an amazing young woman. She has an incredible life story."

Meghan is a unique woman.

"She has stood up for herself, she has made her own way in the world. And then she falls in love, and he falls in love with her, and everybody should be celebrating that."

And they should be living a fairytale.

"Because it is a true love story. You can just look at them and see that."

She's definitely right. Every picture where they're looking at each other proves her 100% correct.

Hillary legit just wanted to hug her.

"I feel, as a mother, I just want to my arms around her. Oh, my god, I want to hug her! I want to tell her to hang in there, [and] don't let the bad guys get you down."

Meghan could definitely do with some helpful tips.

"Keep going, do what you think is right. You know, it's not easy. And there are some techniques that can be learned along the way, some humor, some deflection, whatever."

Basically, Hillary Clinton might be Meghan's #1 stan.

After Beyoncé, of course. Let's not get too crazy, here.

Anyway, Hillary finished: "Which I'm sure that she will come to, but it is tough what she is going through, and I think she deserves a lot better."

I guess Meghan really needed that hug...

Because she invited Hillary to Frogmore Cottage this week.

Cue my heart bursting.

As the Daily Mail reported, Meghan "secretly" invited Hillary Clinton to she and William's Windsor Home, aka Frogmore Cottage.

They even got their hug!

According to sources, both women had what was described as a "fangirl" hug and meeting.

As a former fangirl, I'll translate: they basically told each other how amazing they were, smiled a lot, and got pretty deep into their feelings.

Harry and Archie were also there.

Harry and six-month-old Archie also spent time with Meghan and Hillary. Hillary apparently got some snuggle time in with Archie.

She also told the royal couple about her newest grandson, Jasper.

The source had a lot of good things to say about the meeting.
