Chrissy Teigen spills on working with 'gorgeous' fellow briefcase girl Meghan Markle

By Jessica Pollack

Chrissy Teigen and Meghan Markle have come a long way from their days as briefcase girls on Deal Or No Deal, but that doesn't mean the duchess didn't leave a lasting impression. The Lip Sync Battle host spilled on her time working with the former Suits star in a new interview with the Daily Mail, and it seems she's got nothing but praise for "gorgeous" Meghan!

Speaking about her love of the Royal Family, which was on full display when Chrissy and John dressed as the Queen and Prince Philip for Halloween, the mom of two revealed that she's a longtime fan of Meghan. "I was on Deal or No Deal with her and she was lovely," Chrissy explained. "Now everyone asks me what she was like and I say, ‘Sorry, no dirt.’ She’s gorgeous."

Back in February, she also heaped compliments on the royal mom-to-be while chatting with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. "Everyone wants a good story, and I'm like, I just remember very quiet and sweet. I got nothing...Really kind, and I don't say that about anybody," she said.

"I think she came in the second season or so. I did from the pilot season to first, but then I got demoted because I couldn't walk down the stairs," she joked, adding that she went from briefcase girl to banker girl. And the hilarious star still holds her connection to Meghan over her husband's head. "I keep telling John, 'That could've been me [with Prince Harry]!'"

With her latest cookbook, Cravings: Hungry For More, already topping the bestseller charts, the passionate cook also weighed in on Meghan's foray into publishing with Together: Our Community Cookbook. The royal's first solo charity project brought together the global recipes of the women at the Hubb Community Kitchen, all affected by the Grenfell Tower Fire, and includes a thoughtful foreword by the mom-to-be.

"I love the freshness she brings, and her cookbook Together is my only pre-order of the year," Chrissy gushed. "It’s beautifully done and you can tell how important it is to her. You see how she interacts with people and gets down to eye level with kids."
